I haven't written here for some time, and today I've been reading a lot of your Wizzles just getting a feel for how it all works before I jump in again. I can't seem to get the video tutorials to load today, and I can only scroll down to the bottom of the forum pages sporadically, so I'm hoping some of you can help me . First, I've seen a lot of beautifully laid out work from all of you. My only experience has been on Squidoo and HubPages, except for my few Wizzles written long ago. On Squidoo, I know many code their modules to make them more impressive. Is that how you do it here? Or do those Amazon and Zazzle modules just naturally have those lovely big images and seem much different than the way they look when I type the codes into text modules on Squidoo. I suppose one way to find out is just to jump in and see what happens, but I also like to look before I leap.
I'm also wondering about the size and shape of the intro images. I didn't find any specs on image sizes for any of the modules. Does it matter? I normally make them 600 px wide for Squidoo.
Are there some guidelines I missed on ratio of product ads to text? Although I normally write plenty of content, I also like to feature a lot of Zazzle products to illustrate some of it. I don't want to violate any guidelines I'm supposed to be aware of. Is there an outgoing link limit I should be aware of?
So far I seem to have gone off in all directions here, so I'm trying to find a niche. I have one in mind, but I have no idea if it matters to anyone but me. I love my local community and would like to put it on the map. I'd also like locals to learn more about the wonderful walks I've discovered. So far I've only shared one of them. There are many places along my main highway I live on that are perfect for families needed a rest stop and a bit more without going out of their way too much. Just not sure how much the potential for traffic is. Plenty of traffic travels this highway, though.
Any help would be appreciated. I'll go make some more Zazzle products and check back a bit later.
