What's New ?
Take Advantage of Infographics
everywhere these days. Infographics are graphic charts and designs that help
present information in a friendly manner. They are intended to present data
quickly and concisely. Infographics can also help get a point across or tell a
story. Media outlets have used Infographics for years, recently these graphic
representations have become mainstream.
It is not uncommon
to see Infographics displayed prominently on Social media sites. The ability to
spread, explain, and display statistics and raw data quickly lend itself to
social outlets. But Infographics are not a fad, they have been used for serious
news for decades. Weather is the first place that comes to mind. Almost any
seven-day forecast is an example of an Infographic.
In the past, if you
did not possess design and layout skills an infographic could be time
prohibitive to create and assemble. New tools make it much easier to design,
create and display infographics. Online tools can help you layout and design
your own graphics masterpiece in a reasonable amount of time.

administrative tools, and to be fair I could create the same infographic in
Photoshop. However, I found the tools and layout of canva.com to be easy to use
and intuitive. There are free and paid options so watch what you select for your
infographic. You can see the one I created here, it is titled,
Looking For Ways To Promote Your Website? (Once the infographic is
displayed, You can click the little button in the lower right corner that looks
like a television if you want to see a larger view of the infographic.)
Google Charts may be other options for online infographic creation.
Infographics can be
used as posters, in blog's, sales presentations, ads and more. Give it a try.

1. Some times I dress up in a duck costume and throw bread at
people and scream “HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?!?!?!”
Just changed my Facebook name to ‘No one’ so when I see stupid posts I can click
like and it will say ‘No one likes this’.

how potatoes give us chips, fries and vodka. Other vegetables seriously need to
get their act together!
