It means that the most important websites show up first. The higher your page rank, the higher you appear on Google – so long as you are relevant to the search! ie. no matter how high your page rank is for ‘ice cream’ you’re not going to show up in a search for ‘winter vacations.’
I have a Page Rank of Zero, will I still show up on Google?
Yes! Google aims to give searchers what they are searching for. If you are the best result, you will be at the top no matter what your page rank is. If someone searches for ‘Best ice cream to eat on winter vacation’ and your domain name is www.besticecreamtoeatonwintervacation.com and you sell ice cream and winter vacations, you will be first in the search!
Thanks Becci for inspiring this post! You’re amazing and thank you so much for all your comments!! You’re my hero
What I’m using My Art Apps for:
Screenshot showing my art with Sketchbook Pro. So many efferts are possible with the variety of brushes and layers.
I’ve been posting a bunch of How to Draw videos to Youtube. They’re supposed to get the gesture of how to draw across without being dull; and I aim to get the basic shapes of a thing to your brain in a way that’s easier to remember. So a mushroom is the same proportions as a face; the legs of a horse become the letter ‘S’: its easier to remember a mushroom than a circle and a rectangle. Everything has a circle in it somewhere; it’s putting the shapes together with the right proportions that will make a difference in your drawing. And what am I using for these drawing videos? Sketchbook Pro
Screenshot of Made with Paper – perfect for sketching on the go without carrying around a stack of paper and pens.
I also do a lot of logo design, and graphic design for websites. It’s much easier to send sketches to a client in a .pdf form so that they can see we’re on the same page before I spend a lot of time finding the perfect fonts and working in photoshop. So what am I using for client brainstorming .pdfs and sketching people when they’re not looking? Paper by FiftyThree
(I don’t have a wacom tablet anymore, so I try to do as much on my ipad with my cheepie stylus as possible- though all professional graphics people should have a Mac, a Wacom, and Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator).
It’s best for getting ideas down in one place. It’s great for brainstorming!
Feels like A Notebook – you can create ‘notebooks’ with sequential pages.
Undo – A two-finger swipe in a circle will undo your last actions – I love how this works so quickly to rewind.
Brushes – You’re limited to a few brushes (and you have to pay extra for them) but I love the way that they feel. The pen varies its line thickness in a really pleasing way, the watercolor brush does look like watercolor, and I wish I could import these brushes into Sketchbook Pro
Cons: You can’t paste in a photo from your photo library. No layers.
Export: You can export as a .PDF or email individual pages. I use this app when I’m designing logos for a client; I’m able to sketch out a variety of ideas and export it by email for them, so that they can choose what sketch they like for the final iterations.
I don’t really like watching videos online. But I stopped to watch this one because I wondered, “What does the pre-tornado thunderstorm look like?” And the answer is not what I expected, but insane and incredibly more beautiful, and, as the artist/photographer/storm chaser Mike Olbinski says, it does look “like alien spacecraft” … this took FOUR YEARS of stormchasing to catch this beautiful time-lapse video of a supercell thunderstorm. I’m going to be checking his blog to find out what that was like!
I especially love how the blue and gold and white are at such high contrast here. Amazing quality!
I’ve loved those purple shelves ever since I first saw them on Outsapop. I love the idea of disparate furniture being collaged together into something gorgeous and eclectic like this. So cute. Such an installation piece.
My version of this Pinterest inspiration: a salvaged mirror from a twin bed + a beachy dresser = a mirrored dresser!
“ I personally really love gritty real-life/fantasy stories when they’re written well, and I think Holly does the combination so much freaking justice. It doesn’t try too hard to be overly bad-ass.” – Shannon, via Goodreads
“I’m a fan of Holly’s work, … I can’t wait to see where this story goes and I’m sure it will be just as incredible as her other work.” -Kelsey
So you want to get caught up on Game of Thrones or Mad Men but your Netflix account doesn’t have the episodes you need and you didn’t DVR the program and your buddy has given you a disk or a hard drive that has EVERY EPISODE on it except that they are all formatted in .mkv or .avi !!!!
(I’m not teaching you what to do with files you download from glowgaze.com using uTorrent or I’d be a bad person)
What do I do with a .MKV file or a .AVI file on a MAC?!
