I have been planning on moving free things online to a new site, but just hadn't gotten around to doing it. Well finally I took the plunge and migrated the site to its own domain so be prepared for a lot of changes over the next few days and a much better site.

RSS buttons for your blog

Some blog owners don’t make it easy to subscribe. Either there is no icon for the RSS feed or it’s hidden way below the fold. Something as easy as adding a prominent RSS button that stands out near the top of the blog template with the word “Subscribe” near it can increase the number of return visitors substantially. If your blog does not place a RSS graphic high on the page, then you’re missing out on a substantial amount of return traffic and visibility.
If your a user of Feedburner you might have also noticed it doesn't really give you much variety in terms of button designs and size, your very much limited to a few choices and if your not much of a photo shop expert then you pretty much don't have a choice. For those of you who might want to go for a different feel of rss buttons and stand out amongst the rest then the following links will definitely be of some use to you.
