Think2.0 – Easy Draw it Yourself Web Design Online App

Updated:1x

My favorite method of learning, and doing projects has always been the one where anything goes. No need for an outline given by the instructor that lets in no original work of your own. Also, I feel my blog is missing a factor, the one that creates interaction between the blogger and the reader (if I have any readers) so I decided to try a new segment where I take one of my best ideas, share it with everyone, and see how much readers add to it over time. Maybe even at some point an idea or two may become something worthwhile to make real.

Today’s topic is: Creating an online service that lets users design a custom web page using for free presets and tools that insert Divs and such. Heres an example of an application similar to my idea:

Considering the fact that users will be able to draw things using an online application, all the divs and such drawn out can be inserted using absolute positioning. Here’s some other features that I think should probably be included of mine making no prior expertise needed:

– Use a “Code” and “Visual” view so that users can edit the HTML itself as well.
– Option of using PHP for better users.
– Anybody know what programming language WordPress’ word processor is made of? Maybe the same language should be used for this. Or maybe Ajax?
– Have option of using preset border designs.
– Have option of creating and saving styles as an external style sheet instead with IDs and Classes.
– Don’t want to make it seem like myspace, but maybe there should be a blog feature, and on every other page a small box with the most recent blog posts and more could be shown.
– Upload and insert images or insert images on another server like Photobucket.
– Integration with Photobucket would be better actually. Log into Photobucket from this account and simply drag and drop or images into a div or use absolute positioning.
– Have filters to add glossiness, and effects such as those found in Picnik. Or rather integrate Picnik as well.

You probably wouldn’t read this unless you want to make your blog better.

I’m rather glad to say my traffics risen to the point at which I have about 40 visitors a day, even on a day when I only am studying for school or reading up on web design. But lately if you’re like me, you want to improve the number of visitors to your blog. But doing that isn’t going to matter at all if your blog viewers don’t like your work. Thats why its important to make sure that they like your blog as much as possible. Not everyone going to like your work, and you definitely should never lose your point of view for someone else’s. But if you can keep your view on things as well as make your blog posts more interesting and captivating even after reading only the first sentence, then thats all you need to do and eventually you could possibly even double or triple your blog’s traffic. Now, me writing another “Become a better Blogger” with at least a hundred of those out there to read would make it hard to find some simple, to-the-point and helpful articles, so I’ve decided to post links to other articles that I’ve found useful, but I will also share some of what I’ve learned and my opinions to each article.

Why you could be fired (or hired) for Blogging – There are many different aspects of whether or not blogging is good. Having a well-designed and nicely managed blog can make your blog a great resume’, or rather your blog can be so inappropriate or disorganized that it becomes the exact reason you don’t get hired. Either way, if you want to make sure your blog can’t be incriminating against you, then you should read this post before continuing. When the time comes for me to look for a job, this is definitely what I need to keep in mind. (In that case I should probably get rid of the Harry Potter torrents post?) You can also read this article, which is rather lengthy, but has extra information.

  • Feedburner gives Instant Results!

    Only yesterday i subscribed for Feedburner’s services. Its main service is to create an RSS feed for your blog or website. But the other services it provides Feedburner gives involves promoting your site or blog on other websites that get a lot of traffic to help increase traffic at your site. Best of all, its free! (to upgrade and place ads on other websites though costs a bit). Anyway, i signed up for as many services as i could, and received a spike in visitors by about 61, only about 59 more than usual. It also seems like I’m not the only one. It seems like the swiss job had similar results, but even better. He showed up on WordPress’ homepage! Here’s an example of my blog’s traffic in the past 30 days

    Update: It seems like Feedburner actually had nothing to do with him showing up on the front page of WordPress, but Feedburner still helps your site gain traffic.

    The Swiss Job’s post on feedburner

    And i happen to have had encounters with hackers who’d then spam all over your online account, so i just felt like saying that this is not an ad, i simply wrote it because my experience is real. Not sure what difference it makes though because i could be a spammer and you cant prove it. Haha, well anyway have fun with your feedburner account.

    Update: Just to let people know Opera version 9.23 was released recently and it fixes both some security issues and stability issues.
