Awesome Article about Call to Action Buttons

If you like design, or are building websites or ads, this is a very good overview with examples of what makes a good Call to Action Button:

WordPress For the Win.

I know countless other people have said that WordPress is amazing.. that it's powerful, complex, rich, and easy to use.. that it is the only thing people should be building websites on today! Let me add my thoughts on WordPress: THEY ARE RIGHT!  I've been using it for about 6 months now on a number of marketing projects,  and every time I use it to: create a quick web-page, post a blog, add a side-bar widget, add a social plug-in, or build a site in a week or two... I get goosebumps.

If you are building a new website, and you are not using WordPress (and running a Blog too), I wonder at your sanity!

Working in Spurts improves Productivity

A Spurt, a Wave, a Session... whatever you call it: working in spurts can be more productive than trying to work a full day non-stop.  This is especially true when you can design your spurt session for a specific objective/milestone.  Not a "full project" but one piece that you are going to get done in this spurt.  The amazing feeling of accomplishment you get when you complete your "SpurtSprint" motivate you to take a short break, and then execute on another SpurtSprint.

So, don't "grind away your day", barely working.

Work in "SpurtSprints" and take 10-15min breaks in between.

Not only will you feel better (from the breaks and the sense of accomplishment), but you will almost CERTAINLY be getting more done than facebooking.
