2 Big Announcements!

by

This week brings two big announcements for the site. First, I'm happy to welcome Sean Hodge officially as the site's new editor. And secondly, I'm also pleased to tell you that Psdtuts+ now has a sister-site at NETTUTS.com.

Sean Hodge Steps Up as Editor

For the last few weeks, I haven't been posting anything up here at Psdtuts+. In fact, our superstar contributor Sean has been stepping up to the plate and running the show. Now that he's comfortable behind the wheel, I'm happy to officially welcome him as editor.

As I've mentioned before, Sean has not only lots of experience blogging—he's a writer for sites like SmashingMagazine and GoMediaZine—but he's also a talented designer with an excellent eye.

He's also got lots of ideas and enthusiasm for the site and is going to be a great captain here. I'll still be around now and again messing up Sean's publishing schedule and adding features to the site, but most importantly I'll be building lots of new sites. In fact, in the two-and-a-half weeks since Sean has taken over, I've already managed to redesign FlashDen (which will be live later this week), and I've also had the time to build a new TUTS site! So without further ado ...

NETTUTS Soft Launch

Yesterday, I put up the first beginnings of a new tutorial site over at NETTUTS.com. The site is pretty empty at the moment, and this week I'll be filling it up with some seed content and then setting a relaxed posting schedule which we'll ramp up in the coming months (just like we did here at Psdtuts+).

As the name suggests, NETTUTS is going to be home to tutorials about everything to do with the Net, from HTML/CSS to Flash to Ajax to things like Adobe AIR and Amazon S3.

My main aim early on will be to show you how to build designs that we create here on Psdtuts+ into HTML. I'm working on a couple of epic tutorials that go from scratch to slick looking Web site.

As with Psdtuts+, we'll be opening up to user contributions and eventually creating a Plus premium membership program (which will link together with PSD+ for discounts).

For the moment, feel free to head over, bookmark the URL, add the RSS to your feed, and leave a comment.

I'll be back later in the week to link up our first big PSD > HTML tutorial as soon as it goes live.

Catch up with me on Twitter!

I'm still going to be popping in now and again on Psdtuts+, but if you're a twitterer, then you can also follow me on Twitter, where I've recently set up at http://twitter.com/collis <-- Can't believe I managed to get 'collis'. Guess it's good having a weird name sometimes! Mostly I just twitter about business, new sites, big articles and ramblings :-) but feel free to say hello!

    How to Auto-Schedule Tweets in Hootsuite From a CSV File3 schedule tweets in hootsuite
    As service providers and online business owners, we are often expected to maintain the social media profiles of our clients, as well as use social media accounts to promote our own work. You can offer social media management as a service to prospective clients, but potential clients will often want to see how you manage your own social media before deciding to work with you. If you are managing social media for a client, the actual networks you use may vary (Pinterest, Facebook, Linkedn, Vine, Instagram...), depending on the audience you are appealing to, and the brand identity of your client. But one social media network all clients will undoubtedly have in common is Twitter. Hootsuite has risen fast to become the defacto tool for anyone building and engaging with an audience on Twitter. While not the prettiest interface, it is often the most practical, providing you with easy-to-review streams that you can use to coordinate your Twitter messaging. At any given time, you can have a dashboard open showing what Twitter messages are being sent amongst your community of followers, who has mentioned you (or your client) in a tweet, and streams dedicated to key hashtag terms in your field. Social media management can be a demanding and time-consuming business service to provide for your clients and needs to be strictly time managed. Scheduling tweets in advance is a key strategy that you can use to maintain productivity in your daily work. If you are tweeting on behalf of a client, scheduling tweets also allows you to offer an accountability loop so that clients can sign off on your communication strategy in advance. This tutorial helps you provide a tweet scheduling service to your clients and includes tips on best practices for managing social media. Learn how to schedule tweets using Hootsuite Pro’s bulk scheduling feature. This service is a big time saver.Read More…
