August Links Roundup: The Best On The Internet


Threads: Twitter’s Newest Competitor – Via The New York Times Instagram’s Threads is your latest social media option.

This alternative to Twitter had 10 million sign-ups in its first seven hours, so Threads might be worth checking out!

Set And Achieve Your Content Marketing Goals – Via Copyblogger – Sonia Simone explains how to determine and achieve your content marketing goals by gaining your readers’ trust, listing the benefits you can offer your audience, and forming partnerships with other content creators to help grow your author platform.

The Difference Between Ko-Fi And Patreon – Via The Blog Herald – Services like Ko-Fi and Patreon are two great ways for authors to monetize their work. You may find Ko-Fi useful if you’re looking for a casual way to monetize your content. If you’re interested in delivering content through membership-tier plans, Patreon might suit your needs best. This article reviews the advantages and disadvantages of both platforms.

Visual Artists Are Using Glaze To Protect Their Work – Via The University Of Chicago – With AI becoming more powerful each day, Glaze software is a new defense for visual artists wary of being exploited by Generative AI.

Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!

I cannot possibly detail how professional and helpful Web Design Relief has been in helping me launch my collection of short stories—there are just too many things they have done! They’ve been there for me all along the way, guiding me in developing my book and into the 21st century of web design and social media platforms. It could have been a bewildering journey; Instead it was one that was organized and so pleasant. Truly, Web Design Relief has blown me away by what they have created. The first time I watched my book trailer (who knew there were book trailers?), I cried. That team perfectly imaged what my book is about. I want to thank the whole team for their skill and creativity. I appreciate it so much.
