Flair of the Week: ConsumingWorship.org

Jeff sent me some flair for his blog Consuming Worship

It has a cool artsy looking guitar.

You can see it prominently featured this week on my facebook profile.

Do have flair for your blog yet?

    Paul,
    “Pieces of Flair” is an application on facebook that allows you to create, share and display buttons or “flair” on a virtual corkboard. It’s kinda goofy – but I find it’s one of the simplest ways to display your personality on facebook. (You can also promote a friends blog on your flair board.)

    Send me a friend invite on facebook and I’ll shoot you an invite to the “pieces of flair” app.

    Actually, I’m not on facebook. Should I be mortified and ashamed?

    Paul,
    For local church ministry it’s a must – there are several folks (mostly college and youth, along with a growing number of adults) who never check their email but respond within minutes to a facebook message.

    It has other capabilities that make it a powerful tool to organize, connect, and cause collaboration within a local church context. I’d say at a minimum it is worth signing up and testing out.

    I guarantee at a bare minimum you absolutely will find good friends from college/high school you have not talked to in a long time and reconnect with them.

    Jan,
    Flair is dead easy to make, you can turn any image on your computer into flair – just click on the “make flair” tab.

    You don’t need to be a graphic artist.

    You could easily make some cool flair out the header you currently have – I probably wouldn’t recommend this since it’s a stock template, and you flair would then brand the template rather than your blog.

    If you don’t go the route of getting a new logo – I’d just find an original image to put in your header.

    I’d love to make a button for my site. How did you make yours?

    thereal,
    I used the “Pieces of Flair” application for facebook. Once you install it, it’s pretty self explanatory.

    I presume you created the image first before you uploaded it. I had thought I could find a template and add text in the facebook application, but that doesn’t seem possible. Any hints?

    Mike,
    Yeah, you can create flair out of just about any image.

    I use Photoshop to add text to my images. I know there are fee image editing software programs out there that would allow you to create some text.

    One program I know of is called “The Gimp” it is awesome and has all the power of Photoshop (for free) but it also has an extremely high learning curve.

    Another program is called Draw Plus from Serif. This is not any sort of amazing program but it will let you make an image with text.

    Billy,

    Thanks for the help! I used the Draw Plus program from Serif and created myself a new avatar.
