Hi guys, in the next few weeks I'll be sorting thru and organizing all the graphics I've designed for your ActiveRain blogs so... Instead of having to search thru my posts from months ago to find what you're looking for, everything will be in one place including blog headers, subscribe buttons, copyright notice symbols, etc... We'll also have lots of new stuff available so stay tuned and watch my blog for more news & updates soon. Until then, here's some May 2009 calendar/wallpapers ready to download. Later...
Hi guys, while I'm busy working in the background putting a whole bunch of new stuff together, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at a new Rain wallpaper that will be available soon. One of my favorite things about the web is the ability it gives us to connect and share stuff with more people than we could ever reach in traditional ways such as newspaper ads, direct mail, etc... Think about it... now we can easily get our message across to clients & potential clients and totally bypass traditional media. Powerful marketing has gone from ultra expensive (38 comments)
Hi guys, my brain needs a serious rest from writing tutorials and I have a busier than busy month coming up so right now, I'm taking some "me time" to relax, have fun, eat like a pig and watch hockey. ;-) Today I just wanted to give you a preview of some new stuff I'm working on that will be coming out sometime in May including... a new calendar/wallpaper that you can use on your own sites & blogs, a look at a couple of cellphone wallpapers and a new series of blog headers for both ActiveRain & Wordpress.

Hi guys... this week I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at something I've been working on to try and address/solve a question that comes up more often than I can count...
Almost every week I get emails from fellow Rainers asking something along the lines of "hey marti, I'm thinking of signing up for an ActiveRain outside blog but I'm also thinking about using WordPress, what should I do?". Since this question has been around for months and doesn't seem to go away, I thought I'd answer it publicly to give you my opinion (63 comments)
Hi guys... there's not a drop of snow left in Montreal and today I'm enjoying a serious coffee/chocolate buzz. In other words, life is good! On top of that, 2 days ago I received the coolest Easter gift ever (no, it's not chocolate) and I wanted to share it with you since the reason this gift was sent to me has a lot to do with ActiveRain, my Rain friends and my ActiveRain blog
If you don't know what The Butterfly Effect is, here's a short definition from Wikipedia... "The phrase (Butterfly Effect) refers to the idea (72 comments)
Hi guys, I want to start off by saying that this post has nothing to do with the graphics I share and/or give away here on ActiveRain. When I post free blog graphics, wallpapers, calendars for you to use, it's because I want to and I'm more than happy to do it. That being said... I'm not sure why some people on the net insist on learning things the hard way but I wanted to share my latest weekend adventure in hopes that anyone who still doesn't understand the consequences of copyright violation, will learn from someone else's mistakes (96 comments)
How not to do an April Fool's prank (an update on marti) - 04/01/09 06:40 PM
Good afternoon Rainers, I wanted to give you all an update about marti and to thank his friends here on ActiveRain for the emails of support. If you haven't heard, marti took a nasty fall off a ladder last night while setting up an elaborate April Fool's joke that resulted in a broken right hand and a minor concussion. It's nothing too serious but as a precaution he had to stay in the hospital for observation for the next 24 to 48 hours If you're one of our client's in need of tech help please contact Jason at email@example.com Any (48 comments)
