What is Jing?

Jing is a free and easy way to create images and videos of what you see on your computer screen then share them instantly online!

Simply capture an image (screenshot) of what you see on your computer screen and use the built in mark-up tools (arrows, text and boxes) to enhance your image. See the image of IMAlwaysHappy2Help.com’s logo below as a ‘work in progress’.

I want to convey to my designer I want the Kingdom of Thailand flag removing from the header image. So I simply capture the image and then use an arrow pointing to the area that needs his artist attention and then add a text box with some simple instructions. I then save the image and attach it to an email as normal and send.

Alternatively you can capture what you see and do on your monitor (screencast) in a 5 minute or less video recording and share with your audience. You can share the video you have created by embedding the code into a webpage or use a link that will direct your audience to your Sceencast.com video hosting page. Watch my brief example Below!

Jing by TechSmthOf all the cool tools and resources I’ve found and share with friends and colleagues, Jing is without a doubt, always the most popular and for good reason. It’s easy to add notated screenshots to all your online conversations, or create a quick tutorial video you can share with your staff, designer, sales team or customers. It gets everyone on the same page fast and is fun to use. Once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever managed before.

Brainstorming For Lifestyle Blog Ideas

August 19, 2012 in Guest Posts

Start Your Own Lifestyle Blog

Lately, it’s been one of those times where I can think of any good lifestyle blog ideas.  It seems like each idea I come up with is uninteresting, beat to death, or irrelevant to one of my blogs.  This is one of those times when I’ll use my Top Ten Blog Ideas List to kick start a new blog idea, but I’ll tell you that even that doesn’t work sometimes.  I’m sure most of you know exactly what I’m talking about and probably think you’re a bad blogger for not being able to overcome that obstacle.  Well, there’s nothing wrong with you and I’m right there with you in that thought process.

A New Lifestyle Blog

lifestyle blogWhen this happens to me, I’ll often do something drastic.  I’ll take a break from blogging for a little while which could be a couple days, a week, or maybe even longer.  I tend to feel burnt out and need some time away to not worry about how many viewers are visiting my blogs each day or stressing about making sure the next article is just right.  In fact, that’s what I’ve done over the last week or two.  I definitely don’t consider it the end of the world either.  Lifestyle blogs are made to be built up over time and it is far too easy to get caught up in the notion that you need to blog every day or you’ll become irrelevant.  But, that’s just not true. I’ve Googled more search terms than I can count and it is amazing how many high ranking results are for sites that are clearly inactive with old outdated content from years ago.  This means that you can let your fingernails recover as taking a hiatus from your blog isn’t going to kill you.

However, just because you’re not blogging, doesn’t mean that you’re not generating new blog ideas. It’s amazing how many tasks, events, and occurrences take place throughout our daily lives. Each one of these can lead to a new lifestyle blog idea. In it’s own way, just living your life is a giant brainstorming session for coming up with new lifestyle blog ideas to expand on.  I own and currently maintain seven different blogs. Each one is about something completely different and really allows me to entertain a variety of ideas that randomly pass through my mind.  By backing away from blogging for a little while, it let’s you look at things from an outside perspective and realize that you can’t rush good ideas.  Sometimes they take a little while to come to you.  Check out our free blog tools!

So, next time you’re worrying about what to write about and it seems like everything you think of has been published online hundreds of times before, don’t be afraid to take a break.  Don’t write anything for awhile. Maybe don’t even look at your lifestyle blog at all.  It can be the exact remedy to get your mind back on track and ready to formulate whenever you feel like coming back to it.  You’ll be inadvertently brainstorming for new lifestyle blog ideas and have an entire arsenal to keep you busy writing for quite some time.  Thanks for checking out Blog Ideas!
