Shang Studio's Tees and Tutus

Baby Tees and Tutus

I learned about this photo widget from a fellow Tweeter. It features bling-y tees and tutus that Tina D. Shang, Web Developer & PPC Professional makes for her grand-daughter. The bling-y tees and tutus will probably be a wonderful second business for Shang Studio.

Professional Blog & E-mail Signature Widgets - DooID v2.0

DooID v2.0 Blog & E-mail Signatures

Hi, Everyone! Today's featured widgets are from DooID, the creation of Founder & Web Developer, Per Schmitz. Recently, DooID v2.0 was released and I'm enjoying using v2.0 even more than I enjoyed using v1.0!

The image on the top-left side of this post is the new DooID v2.0 Sidebar Widget; it's the actual widget. Click on 'v-card' and it will take you to my Michelle_Boddie DooID Virtual Business Card. Of course, your Sidebar Widget would take you to your DooID Virtual Business Card.

The widgets below are samples of the E-mail & Blog Signature Widgets. As their names suggest, you can add these widgets to your e-mails and your blog posts as your 'signature'. The value of using the DooID Signature Widgets is that you have a novel signature that links to your DooID Virtual Business Card for each post or e-mail! To see an example of using the DooID as a *blog-post signature, you can visit, ''X' is Here!'

These DooID v2.0 E-mail & Blog Signature Widgets are customizable by color (although you don't see that reflected with my DooIDs, you really can; I tried out different colors) and the two lines of information below your name. The Sidebar Widget (160 x 250 pixels) is available in the color shown (sleek & professional). As with the Sidebar Widget at top-left side of this post, the widgets below are clickable. One of the E-mail & Blog Signature Widgets is shown without an e-mail address 'selected'. The other one is shown with an e-mail address 'selected'.

You can discover more about the DooID Virtual Business Card at my related post (with video), 'Virtual Business Cards: DooID v2.0. Love It!'

Beautiful Nature in Photographs - Presentation Widget

Sponges, Jellyfish, & Other Simple Animals (Animal Kingdom Classification)

Gorgeous Creatures & Scenery

The presentation widget below features exquisite photographs of exquisite creatures and scenery we may not see, everyday. The images that stand out for me the most are:

  • Slide 1 - this sea creature has a gorgeously colorful 'complexion'
  • Slide 2 - these tall plants have such a graceful posture
  • Slide 13 - this creature and the rock almost match 100%
  • Slide 20 - the sand this creature walks through is so beautiful and pristine all around it
  • Slide 23 - this beautiful creature is taking a sip
  • Slide 24 - this creature looks happy; it looks like it's smiling for the camera or photographer

Thank-you Trisha Garcia for sharing your presentation with us!
