  • This page provides a list of resources available for the web designer or developer who needs to create an editorial style guide for writing web site copy. Definition: "A style guide or style manual is a set of standards for design and writing of documents, either for general use or for a specific publication or organization. A set of standards for a specific organization is known as "house style". Style guides are prevalent for general and specialized use, for the general reading and writing audience, and for students and scholars of the various academic disciplines, medicine, journalism, the law, government, business, and industry. Some style guides focus on graphic design, covering such topics as typography and white space. Web site style guides focus on a publication's visual and technical aspects, prose style, best usage, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and fairness. The strict implementation of style guide regulations provides uniformity in style and formatting of a document."

  • This week ReadWriteWeb will run a series of posts detailing what we think are the five biggest, most cutting-edge Web trends to come out of 2009. We'll be posting one trend analysis per day. Then at the end of the week we'll publish a major update to our standard presentation about web technology trends.

    The first major Web trend we're looking at is Structured Data. In prior presentations, this has sometimes been referred to under the umbrella term of 'Semantic Web'. However the way 2009 has panned out so far, it's become clear that this trend is much more than the Semantic Web. In this post, we'll analyze the developments in Structured Data this year and provide you with 3 product examples: OpenCalais, Google, Wolfram Alpha.

  • Over the last year I have learned a great deal from women in the field of marketing, social media, branding and entrepreneurship. While there are many female thought leaders in the marketing industry that I may have missed, this list contains the women that have made a difference in my life, my viewpoint, and continue to lead the way for women in business.

    It’s up to each of us to find online content we find valuable to our growth and business needs, and then to consume and put into action the advice and tips from the experts. This list is full of women that I have found to be leaders, women that are consistently providing relevant and useful information to the marketing and social media industry. I appreciate each and every one of them and recommend these ladies as the Chicks Pick Best in Blog – Marketing and Social Media 2009.

  • Since starting The Design Cubicle, I have submitted many of my quality blog posts to various websites that accept community submissions. In the past year, approximately 900,000 visitors have come via referring sites (statistics provided by Google Analytics on 12/16/09).

    While there are hundreds or more websites around the web that allow you to submit, below are the ones that have produced high traffic and successful exposure for my articles and blog in the past year.

    *Please note that many of these sites are reader voted or moderated, so I suggest only submitting your best and highest quality articles for approval or acceptance.
