Create Website Banners The Easy Way

April 16th, 2014 by mission0ps

How to make a banner for your website?

I don’t know about you but personally when it comes to making website banners I am graphically challenged. Design and colour match is certainly not one of my best skills. That’s why I look for ideas that show me what graphics what fonts and what colours go together for maximum impact, that’s the job of a graphic designer however not everyone can afford to hire A graphic designer to make their banners.

That’s why I love Instant GraFX so much. It just makes things easy!

No need for me to get tangled up with Photoshop or Gimp. With the Instant GraFX online banner creator the process is going to be basically the same. The only difference is the amount of skill and time needed to create the banner. This posts will outline the simple but often confusing process of creating the perfect banner for your website.

Modern Day PowerPoint Presentation Videos

April 24th, 2013 by mission0ps

It’s been almost 30 years since PowerPoint presentation videos, well I say video’s, but slides was more the case 30 years ago -and for a long time we’ve been content with the look of our powerpoints presentations …

But our audiences have had just about enough of bullet points – it’s time for an upgrade to PPT.

Video scribe has been on the horizon for a while now with some companies using it in their marketing campaigns with great effect. People just can’t help clicking on video animation when they land on your websites. The “problem” video scribe is the cost.

Previously you’d pay anywhere from $500 up for a 3 min infomercial video and that was way out of the reach of SME’s and individual entrepreneurial business owners. Animated video presentation in 2013 is nowhere near as expensive as it was a few years ago and that means that everyone – and I do mean everyone can have a advert,  infomercial or explainer video to assist in the capture of more leads to your business.

Modern Day PowerPoint Presentation

There’s are 2 alternatives to PowerPoint presentations that I want to bring to your attention, they are PowToon and Sparkol. Read the rest of this entry »

Still No Job? Good Ways to Make Money Part Time

Good Ways to Make Money Part Time

By Tony B

I had a variety of part time jobs growing up, there were plenty to go around then. It’s not that way now, so what’s considered good ways to make money part time these days with businesses closing down on many high streets and people unwilling to part with their money let alone pay you part-time wages.

A lot of people are looking towards the internet as a way to get income part-time and even full-time for some too. There are many websites that offer work that you just need a computer and certain skills for. Read the rest of this entry »

Smultronstallet Is it The Best Ice Cream In Sweden?

August 7th, 2010 by mission0ps

The best ice cream parlours, that’s what my mum wanted to go and visit, we had been to visit Smultronstallet before but the cue was far too long…

It’s in Soderkopping and I have never really seen anything like it, Ulis says that the folks in Sweden are the second largest ice cream consumers in the world! Umm well seems that she just may be right judging by what we saw yesterday.

It’s surely pretty famous this place we were at as even though we went pretty late in the day it was still a few mins wait to get 5 of the 150 or so seats. was it worth the wait? Read the rest of this entry »

Now That Is Just Plain STUPID…

March 15th, 2010 by mission0ps

I have to say that the Swedes have impressed me with so many things, the few simple ones that spring to mind are:

  • A nursery placement for ALL children, a fantastic start for kids and their social skills
  • Snow tyres that simple idea that so many other country’s need to employ
  • Short hours for purchasing strong alcohol, I’m sure it stops loads of social behaviour issues

However I think that someone in authority has missed the plot on this one… Read the rest of this entry »

Snow In Norrkoping – When Will It Melt?

March 14th, 2010 by mission0ps

The snow in Norrkoping is still here, I’m sure it is in your town too, today is 14th March 2010, and the question I want to set to you is when do you think it’s going melt?

I don’t think that it will dissipate until the end April maybe even the start of May 2010, a I being a pessimist or do you think that I am being optimistic. I hear that a few years ago it was still here in June! ( But I think they may have been making that up just to scare me)

I was so glad with the sun coming out in the daytime and thought yeah this is it. However the nights are still very cold and I think that it just ‘ying and yang’… I am able to see the pavement at least on the main streets and I even saw a little bit of grass on the central Read the rest of this entry »

Melodifestival Again!

March 13th, 2010 by mission0ps

Here we go. It’s finally Melodifestival again! I’ve been waiting, as it seems, years for this. The spectacle that it is, is filling me with joy and I can’t stop smiling.

To start it off we have SLY STALLONE!!!??? Now there is a pretty plain explanation to this with guest star on stage this year, all the way from Hollywood is the magnificent DOLPH LUNDGREN. The guy has got humour and a lot of self distance. He’s been dancing, singing (well), presenting and done some acting. It’s been a real hit.

This night was no exception, to the sound of “Eye of the tiger” Dolph, his co presenters and the contestants walked in. Dolph was singing again. Read the rest of this entry »

Norrkoping Police – Quickly Loosing Face

March 13th, 2010 by mission0ps

Norrkoping, in- fact the Swedish police in general have not got the best reputation from what I hear, stating that they have not got a lot of “experience” inn dealing with serious crime. Here are a few instances I know of:

1) The Local  Hells Angels “prospect club” was told by the Norrkoping police that they will be shut down by 1st Jan 2010 – but the news came through that they were granted full membership to the Hells Angels, which was a slap in the face to the local police force.

2) The leader of a criminal gang arrested in Norrkoping in eastern Sweden on drug charges walked free on Saturday when Norrkoping Police left him unattended in an exercise yard. Read the rest of this entry »

Snow Floods Swedens Rivers: NOT

February 19th, 2010 by mission0ps

Snow flooding after melting is something that I am sure that Sweden has a plan for I hope! There is such a lot of snow that I just don’t understand where all the water going to go when it finally melts…

It’s my first winter in Sweden and even though it has been beautiful now I would love to see the grass again. I remember what it’s like in the UK when we have a lot of rain and as unprepared as the UK is (even though it happens often) there is always a story of a village or three getting flooded out and folks homes being completely ruined.

How do you guys cope with the melt down ? Read the rest of this entry »

Is It A Smart Move?

January 8th, 2010 by mission0ps

Now how typical is this tale?…

English boy meets Swedish girl, she is only in the UK for a few months over to get a taste of England she is working as an au-pair. They fall in love and have babies. A few years later she misses home and decides that she really wants to move back to Sweden.

Daddy as he is called now knows that it was almost inevitable. He packs in his nice job and heads out for Sweden too, after all he has seen Sweden on many occasions and the country is beautiful as are the people. He thinks “surely finding a job and a house won’t be as much of a task as it is in the UK will it? I’m sure that I’m making a smart move”. Read the rest of this entry »

October 16th, 2009 by mission0ps

What a strange post to start with I mean we have bendy buses (as I call them) in the UK but we do have a bit of a different take on when they will be used. Read the rest of this entry »
