I’ve noticed an interesting trend of late in the social networking world: micro-advertising. Google have embarked on yet another Google Adwords mailout campaign, with a £50 off deal. And now LinkedIn have joined in the fray, with a $50 off deal.

As freelance front end dev work is a bit thin on the ground, I thought I’d give the LinkedIn advertising a go. Who’d have thought it, me, an advertiser?!

That’s me, the advertiser

And that’s the interesting development, as advertising has reached the micro-level, and we are all becoming advertisers in one way or another. My own skills are pretty darned niche yet if it’s easy, relatively cheap and actually works, then I wouldn’t be averse to advertising. There goes my soul… ;)

About Jake Rayson

A web designer since the 20th century, I am a pragmatic advocate of Free Software and I use proprietary software when appropriate. I made the full-time switch to Linux back in 2007, and my desktop tools of choice are Linux Mint, Inkscape, GIMP and Sublime Text.

As a Front End Developer, my core skills are HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery, and my working life reflects my commitment to open standards and accessible websites (ie accessible by everyone, regardless of browser, platform, ability or technology).

For web publishing platforms, I use WordPress for ease of use and Drupal for more complex solutions.

I am also learning about Ruby, Rails, Sinatra and CoffeeScript. I like the minimalist Ruby Way. To this end, my personal portfolio website is built with NestaCMS.

  • Jake - don't sell yourself short, your recommendation has been enough to get me to try our several things in the past. That has to count as "celebrity endorsement" of a sort...
