The Art of Blogging

The truth about writing is that it’s 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration; a good writer starts with a quick burst of creativity and spends the rest of their time refining and editing those initial ideas.

This ratio of creating vs. editing time helps clarify your ideas so your audience understands your point of view.

How to download and install beautiful fonts in seconds! #Fonts #MarketingTips

Standard

Natalie Ducey ~ Poetry and Graphic Design

Greetings, everyone! ♥

Today I’d love to share a quick video tutorial on how to download and install beautiful fonts in seconds!

We live in a visual world. Many followers of my blog are writers, authors, and/or bloggers, AND readers. We share and market our work, and the work of others, through visuals. What grabs our attention? For me it’s pictures, but a big source of inspiration comes from the typography.

We can create beautiful marketing graphics using unique fonts. Our words convey a message and, hopefully, a story; but first we must gain a reader’s attention. Any font will convey a message, but the right font will tell a story. Your story. ♥

Nicholas C. Rossis

As you may remember, I’ve been experiencing computer trouble for the past week, so I’ve been using Electra’s computer. The first time I tried to log in, I was stunned to see a new login screen asking me to specify what kind of Advertising I was interested in:

Amazon Advertising | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's book

This was the first I realized Amazon has retired three of its ad services and products as well. The move looks like a response to Google’s move earlier this year which saw the search engine giant dropping many of its advertising brands. Despite becoming America’s second $1 trillion company, Amazon’s marketing and advertising division still lag behind its two direct competitors: Google and Facebook Ads.

The All-new Amazon Advertising Department

In an announcement made last week, as reported by The Passive Guy, Amazon SVP Paul Kotas introduced the all-new Amazon Advertising department. Amazon will be retiring three of the company’s most popular marketing platforms: Amazon Media Group (AMG), Amazon Marketing Services (AMS), and Amazon…
