What’s New on ShareCG & What’s on the Horizon

Friday, March 12th, 2010

We’re in the process of making a number of very important updates to ShareCG with the goal of facilitating  a true social network here where you can connect with your peers and share your thoughts and ideas with the growing ShareCG community.   We’re also going to be integrating an e-store on the site to enable you to sell your CG items.

Update 1: The BLOG

Yep, this blog is the first of the updates, and we’d  like to invite you to create your own CG blog right here on ShareCG.  The site currently reaches 170,000 unique visitors each month so you’ll have a large and targeted audience to talk to.  The latest blog entries are featured on ShareCG’s home page with your photo or avatar, and you’ll also be picked up on RSS feed and by all the web search engines to give you an even wider reach.

If you’d like your own ShareCG blog just send an email to sharecgadmin@sharecg.com and include or attach the following:

Subject line:  “ShareCG Blog Setup”

Attachment:  Your photo or avatar (a work of art or other representation)  Size this to a ratio of 7×9 (for example 700×900 pixels.)

Body: Include the below in the body of your email:

1. Your username

2. The name of your blog.  (The title of my blog is “CG Guy” for example)

3. The title of your first blog entry

4. The content of your first blog entry (This can be an overview of  the information or topic you’re blog will be focused on.  Or you could just jump in and submit your first full informational blog or whatever you’d like.)

We will set up your blog and send you and email that includes your username and a login password that you can change once you’ve logged in to your blog.

We’re looking forward to reading what you have to say, and so is the ShareCG community.  Happy blogging!

Update 2: Other recent site updates

1. A new way to view art and photos: Now when visitors want to view your super-sized art they can click on the artwork or photo and it appears in a neatly bounded floating window with your descriptive verbiage on the lower border.  And, we also retained the ability for users to see and download your full sized image.

2. Your photo or avatar now appears when you comment on the site.  This is the first baby step towards making the site more of a social network.

We’ve got lots more coming up, and I”ll be reporting on each enhancement as  soon as it’s completed so you can check it out and participate.  BTW — your feedback and comments are always welcome and really essential to the growth of this new community.

Future CG Guy blogs — In addition to keeping you updated on site enhancements and news I have been invited to report on a number of events and will post my reports here.  My next event takes place on March 22nd when I visit the  DreamWorks studio  in Burbank to check out the latest technology used at this studio and to preview their latest upcoming release.  You’ll be reading about this one as soon as I return.

In the meantime —– Enjoy the site — happy creating!
