Welcome to the new Mike’s Sketchpad blog. We hope you like our new look. We’ve changed over from Blogger to WordPress so we could offer some better features:
- Categories – Blogger was a little inadequate in this department. WordPress has full support for categories and we are now able to take full advantage of them.
- Tags – Tags are very important in blogging.
- Sidebar Widgets – Designers will appreciate widget support in WordPress. You can totally customize the look of your sidebars with WordPress widgets.
- Plugins – One of the best features of WordPress is support for plugins. There are a ton of quality free plugins available online.
- Better Custom Theme – We were able to give the blog a better look with a new custom theme.
We’re still tweaking it so please be patient.
Welcome to the Sketchpad.net Blog. Previously, you could find all the new tutorials at the “Newest Pages” page, but there was no way for you to catch any revisions. For example, I recently revised the QuarkXPress® Tips page. There you will find a faster and easier way to add hanging indents to your QuarkXPress layouts.
Keep checking back here at the blog to find the latest free fonts. Mike’s Sketchpad is proud to announce that we will be offering free OpenType® OTF (PostScript®) fonts whenever they become available. For example checkout “Generic Tech”, “5 x 6″, “Space Gothic” and “Metro Mono”. These are the first OpenType free fonts available at the Sketchpad.net free fonts archive.
