A quick announcement today: we've added web ads to the sidebar via BuySellAds. Advertisement purchases will help insure the long-term success of the site. Check out the Ad Sales page for more information. Also, we've prominently added a design Float button to the bottom of posts.
BuySellAds Integrated into the VECTORTUTS Sidebar
If you ever want to purchase an advert here, you can now do so via our Ad Sales page on BuySellAds. The price of an advert is USD$500 p/month :-)
The monthly traffic for VECTORTUTS is currently 380,000 page views a month. There are over 4,000 RSS subscribers. Also, the site is growing rapidly.
Design Float Button Added to Posts
Design Float is a social networking service similar to Digg, but it's targeted at graphic design and the digital arts. It's a great community to get involved in. You'll notice we replaced the Digg button with a Design Float button at the bottom of all posts.
Here is my user profile (seanHodge) in case anyone ever needs a Float. I really like the Design Float site and have it set as my homepage in one of the browsers I regularly use.
Mini-Vacation Travel Plans
Also, some real quick vacation news. I'll be hoping over to Curacao this weekend, such a hard life. From one sunny beach to the another. I'll be traveling for a short trip from Venezuela over to the island. I'll leave on Thursday and be back before Monday. Feel free to send through all communication, tutorial concepts, and article ideas using the normal forms, as I'll be back before Monday to get caught up.
