Have you ever been on a trip or away from home or office and the only computer you have access to is one that doesn’t have MSN messenger? Meebo.com is a free solution for you. At www.meebo.com you can log into your MSN messenger account, AIM account, Yahoo! messenger account, or your Google Talk account, and chat with your friends, family, or coworkers straight from the web browser. No downloading required. Meebo.com even has their own messenger that you can create an account for and sign in at this login page. There is even a way to embed a Meebo chat into your website or blog. The WordPress created blogs have this function as one of their widgets. For the free account, you can look it up by going to your Dashboard, then to your Presentation tab, then to Widgets. With WordPress sites that you have bought your own hosting for (like from Bluehost, or Hostmonster) you will need to download a plugin that would enable Sidebar Widgets. You can find a plugin at www.wordpress.org

As you have seen, I have done different tutorials on how to use different builders such as Site Creator Plus, and WordPress. I’m always looking for suggestions. If you have an idea of something you would like covered or if you have additional questions, leave a comment with your suggestion.

Well, I finally went out and bought a domain name for this site. You can now access my site by going to www.goeasydesign.com. The domain is forwarded right now. That’s why you still see the https://curtjen.wordpress.com in your address bar when you come here. I haven’t bought hosting, YET. Don’t worry I’ll let all of you know when I make major changes like that.

Snipshot: Image Resizer, Cropper, and More May 14, 2007

Snipshot is a good site you can go to if you want to resize or crop your images for use on the web. I was playing around with it today. What I was trying to figure out was if I could create an html code that refers to the image that I could use to insert into the html portion of an eBay post. Easy! You would be surprized to find how easy it really is. Go to www.snipshot.com and try it out.

  • Click on where it says “WebShots” under Snipshot features on the right hand side.
  • Upload an image (you can choose to keep it the same size by leaving it as “Do Not Resize” or you can change the image in the drop-down menu to a number of predefined sizes).
  • Then you will come to a screen where you can you get the link to the image in many different forms (as a thumbnail or original image: within these main categories for a Blog or Website, Forum or Message board, Email or Instant Messenger, or even the Direct Link to the Image).
  • You can now copy the appropriate code to the destination that you would like to use it. For example, it may be a good idea to use the “Blog or Website” code from the Original Image in an eBay listing. Just copy and paste that code into the html portion of your product listing.
  • It would be a good idea to bookmark this page. When finished you can choose to upload more images.

Example of the Thumbnail style link for Blogs and Webpages:

I created this new blog with the intent of recording the different things that I learn about web design, development, SEO, anything to do with eCommerce, and anything to do with business that I find interesting.
