Today, Blogger was good to me: I did not have to search for the categories that were not published automatically. I publish the categories randomly, so I can give a chance to everyone to be "on the front page". When I started publishing the freebies, the Christmas Theme was always on the front page. When I saw the results, I thought it was an unfair thing for the other designers. So, I modified the publishing part of the engine.
If you are not getting a comment thanking you for your freebie, I apologize. There are several reasons. The most recent one is the word verification that several of you use. I do get through some of you, but not others (not sure why). The reason I am mentioning this comment issue is because I got several emails/comments asking why their freebies are not being published. After confirming that the blog was still in my list, I did research and found the freebies in one of the posts. So, the unfortunate part is the only way you will know that your freebie got posted here is by searching for it. One way to find it faster is to guess which category I would have put your freebie. As much as I would like to do that for you, I do not have the time.
Just to let you know, there are only few reasons that I would remove you from my list: non-appropriate material (you can read it in this post) or you asked for. Until today, I got only 2 requests to be removed from my list, and one of them asked me to put the blog back, which I agree because of the circumstances of the previous request (as I mentioned is this post, the rule is once you asked to be out, you will be out).
The Commercial Use category is still running... However, please remember to check if the freebie is really CU ok, the policy of the store/designer. You might also want to check the other posts, as sometimes I miss it. So, hop around and admire all the work that is being created. Sometimes, I also put some CU's in photoshop resources, brushes, and pallete/style posts.
If you like this blog, please help "spread the word". Here are some ways to do that:
- If you have a blog, please add a link to my blog, or add the blinkie (available on the left side).
- If you do not have a blog, please tell your friends that are also interested in Digital Scrapbook to stop by. This is the best way to propagate this blog. By propagating this blog, it might give you another vehicle to promote your products. By telling other people, it will generate traffic to the stores, and it will be a win-win situation. Otherwise, eventually the blog dies... That may be good for some, but not for the community.
If you have a blog, and your freebie was not published in this blog yet, send a comment to this blog (it can be sent from any post) (Se voce fala portugues, pode mandar em portugues). Sometimes, I already have your blog/store but your blog/store is setup in a way that it is very hard to recognize a freebie in the blog. So, please check some of the store/blogs that are published, and try to follow one of the models. The post explains some of the reason why I did not published your freebie today.
Because I look at each picture, and I classify your possible freebie (the software thinks it is a freebie, and it might pick up the wrong object) based on what I see, it would be nice to have a description on it. Several of you do an amazing job at that. For instance, some of you tell what you are offering, put a small picture of the freebie, and also put a small picture of the whole kit. For me, it is great as I can classify your freebie based on what you think it should be. For the freebie hunter, it is great, as they can see what they are getting. For you store owner, you also give a hint of what is available for sale, and might help you sell the kit. Just a suggestion, so you can promote your products better, and help your customers to easily find you.
I have other blogs, if you want to check them out. One, I post things that I am doing: it is the Creative Busy Hands blog (I even got two awards!!!). The other, my kids suggest games to be played (games that they are playing :-): it is the Wow Game of The Day.
