Creating a listing on freelance service provider Fiverr can be an arduous experience, especially if its your first ever listing. There's several screens of data you have to fill out, from descriptions to pricing to FAQs. Writing it can take hours, and who wants to take the chance of writing out all that data, just for the internet to disconnect and you lose your progress?
That's why I decided to make a helpful tool for you aspiring artistic freelancers, where you can plan out your Fiverr descriptions in a clearly laid out Excel spreadsheet. Not only will the text be easy to save and copy into Fiverr, but you can then easily duplicate and modify your listings, changing just the necessary parts of your text to make a whole new related listing (which is a key part of being successful on Fiverr - offering many similar but distinct services in your wheelhouse). I created and used this template for my Fiverr portraiture gig, and it saved me a lot of stress.
Here's a sneak preview of what the Excel file contains...
I thought I was being very clever about making coloured text, but today I've learned the importance of checking your work. My code wasn't working right. Today, I fixed it, and I will teach you how to make embedded code be the right colour for you.
As a freelance artist, it's critical that I share my artworks on many social media platforms to increase the number of potential clients eyeballs seeing it. There are so many apps these days that offer social media scheduling and mass posting, but frequently they come with caveats like a limited number of social media profiles that can be posted to before you need to pay up. In this article I'll be comparing the main contenders in a frank way. I am not sponsored by any of these companies, and will gladly recommend any free alternatives... if I can find them!
Have you ever wanted to make your Weebly website text match your social media or print adverts, but couldn't remember the name of the font you used on your site? Then you've come to the right place! This is a list of all the fonts currently available on Weebly, as of 29 June 2019.
I am currently using the Paper theme for this Weebly blog o'mine. The existing archives list on this theme (and potentially on others), is vertical. I feel like it takes up more screen real estate than necessary. I set myself a little HTML/CSS mission to see if I could code a way to make the list horizontal instead
Why Would I Want To Do That?
I have a 3DS but it doesn't feel realistic to buy all the games I want to try on it. With this method, I can try before I buy. Also, I already have an iPad, so that's no additional cost. And it feels pretty comfortable to game on the iPad.
GoodNotes 5 came out recently. There weren’t a lot of shocking changes from the previous version, but a simple steady improvement on what made the original app great. Some of the most useful features in this version include line snapping, better text controls, and an assortment of new templates. Today I’ll be looking at recreating a popular paper planner in GoodNotes.
Technology has driven many people away from working in more analog formats. I'm on my iPad so much these days. It is a rare thing for me to get the effort up to dig out a paper book to write in. That makes the bullet-journalling part of my brain sad. It prompted the thought: How can I have that same bujo experience using one of my most-used note-taking apps, Microsoft Office OneNote?
Last few weeks, I’ve been doing some really dry and boring TAFE units relating to workplace health and safety. I decided to soothe the resistance, using the techniques and framework provided in the book The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
I have a Dungeons and Dragins themed Halloween party that I'm invited to. I want to go as a rougue/ranger elf. Pinterest was my first stop in looking for makeup ideas. White mascara seemed like a good choice for that ephemeral look. But I live in a small town so it was unlikely Priceline would have the product I needed. And one week was not a guarentee for an online order to arrive on time. I needed to consider what I could do with the makeup I already owned.
I'm just some Aussie 20-something year old with a lot of time and a lot of interests.
