Visual design elements can considerably improve the readability of the page. Using them, you can make it easier for your users to scan the presented content and find the information they’re actually looking for. Icons can draw reader’s attention to the key aspects of the article and visualize the topic of the post. Buttons can be used to motivate users to some particular actions; and templates are supposed to help designers to create user-friendly interface elements right away. And whatever aim you’d like to achieve, free visual design elements are always useful – simply because they can give your text content a better visual appearance.

We’ve selected fresh high quality icons, buttons, vector graphics, templates and layouts. You might know some of them, but hopefully not all of them.

Hat tip to Sam for the link.

Do You Know How To Make An Amazing “About” Page?

My Cleveland friend Anita Campbell, who is also the super small business guru over at SMBtrends.com, recently interviewed me for a piece she was writing about “About pages” for INC Magazine. The finished piece went live today on the Internet at INC.com. entitled ‘About Your Website’s “About” Page‘.

So, Do You Know The Keys To A Good About Page?

The “About” page — also known as the “About Us” page — is one of the most clicked-on webpages on a business website. It’s right up there after the home page. Yet some website owners pass up opportunities to write killer About pages that will help sell services and products, and turn one-time visitors into newsletter subscribers or regular readers.

It’s a good piece, on a topic that I think a lot of people don’t really consider when building their websites and now blogs.

Gotta love the direct link from Inc.com to my blog too eh? :)
