I’m slowly getting through all my RSS feeds from being away – almost there! Here’s some more posts that caught my eye from the past couple of weeks:

  • Cybercafe Experiments provides a tutorial on how bloggers can use the Lightbox script to ‘snazzy image loading effects’ on your blog with Lightbox JS and Zoomr.
  • Scott Karp picks up on the latest Pew study that finds that 7% of bloggers list making money as their major reason for blogging. A further 8% list making money as a minor reason.
  • If you’re looking for a web based way to get a screen cap of a website you might enjoy ThumbPress – found via Cameron
  • While looking at ThumbPress I also found Paparazzi! – a Mac OS X utility for making screenshots of webpages – very nice.
  • Yaro is looking for two bloggers to blog on the topic of Small Business Branding and Marketing – there’s talk of sharing profits but only after those who are recruited prove their worth.
  • I love a good ‘How to’ post so Brian’s post on How to Write a Killer “How To” Post That Gets Attention is right up my alley.
  • Typepad Hacks has another good hack on how to place AdSense in a TypePad blog header which I’m sure some of you will find useful.
  • Chris Garrett posts a helpful list of tips on how to write a post when you know what you want to say but don’t know how to say it (happens to me everyday!)

    Another place to get site thumbnails is They have both a free and paid service.

    If you are interested in more options for browser capture you may want to check out PageSaver or ScreenGrab . They both work on windows/linux/mac and they can do full page captures as well (see for full screen capture examples).
