Always interesting to find new organizations like this one

Through some networking we have been introduced to an organization called Spellbinders. The Spellbinders storytelling program recreates the age-old tradition of storytelling while bringing together older adults and young people. This seems like a great way to advance literacy for young people and engage older adults in the community. Learn more about their group through their website - www.spellbinders.org. Share this resource with your community.

This is one of a four organizations we shared in our December 2013 eNewsletter from new companies and organizations we have met - Read More.

Sharing some Tips in Regard to Posting Event Flyers Online

Just want to share some tips in regard to posting Event Flyers online. Here goes ...
  1. Always post the files in the PDF format as opposed to posting a Microsoft Word File or Publisher File. PDF stands for Portable Document Format and it was developed by Adobe Acrobat - basically it is close to a universal format online and most web viewers can open the file. Visit Wikipedia to get more details about PDF files -
    And while at the Wikipedia website consider making a donation. They are an awesome resource and they need our support:
  2. Next suggest is to be sure to include your website address - We know the other details are important such as where, when and what but your website is important too. And assuming you save your file as a PDF then when you post your flyer online your website should be an active link.
  3. Our next suggest is how to name the file - keep in mind that the file name shows up in your website code so try to use your company name, short name of the event and then the date. Including the date is important so that at a glance the online viewer can see that the event is coming up or as past. 
  4. Here are some examples of event flyers we have posted for December within our network. Note how the file names incorporate the "company name, name of the event and the date" ...
