Which Ecommerce Platform Is Right For Me? [Infographic]

For today’s infographic, we have some info on the world of ecommerce. What is ecommerce you say? Well, essentially it’s the method by which you choose to sell your junk on the internet (aside from ebay and craigslist). Sites like Ebay and Craigslist are ecommerce strategies, but the following platforms will give you the resources to build and manage an online store of your very own. There are many possible platforms for you to choose from, but here Brightpearl compares three of the biggest names. They have their own pros and cons, depending on your tech-savviness or payment preference. Magento seems to be the most customizable due to it being an open-source platform. Bigcommerce and Shopify on the other hand will box you into prebuilt features. As far as the differences in payment for these various platforms is concerned, Bigcommerce requires an all-in cost, while Shopify lets you have a lower starting cost and then pay as you use add-ons later. Also, it should be noted that if you also use ebay, amazon, or another store, you should invest in a central management system so that the various branches of your business may be more manageable.

All in all, despite this infographic’s confusing nature (needs some arrows and a typo/grammar edit) it is quite useful for figuring out how to start your online business off on the right foot.

30 Dr. Seuss Quotes That Can Change Your Life [infographic]

It is harder than hard to choose just one of these quotes, but that is what I am going to do because that is what I have set out to do.

I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

I find myself questioning things I have said to people, wondering whether or not they were childish, self-centered, or worse, untrue. An example that keeps playing out in my mind is, “You’ll never meet anyone like me.” Whatever confidence I had at that time has since been replaced with pure embarrassment. Why would I say that? How eager and conceited I must have sounded! The truth is, they will never meet someone like me because I am who I am, and I am like no one else. Sometimes we need Dr. Seuss to remind us of these things.

I’m a quote aficionado. I eat them for breakfast, for my mid-morning snack, my lunch, dinner, and sometimes back to back. That’s the truth of all truths–ask anyone I know. For a person so hungry for words, you might expect my favorites to lie in the wisdom of Emerson, Austen, or even Twain, but I can gleefully say that no one can top my man, Dr. Seuss. Suess would sling words of wisdom as if he were reading headlines from the Sunday paper. Can you do that? Seuss would say ‘yes.’ Check out this infographic. I mean exactly what I say when I say, you will love it. [via]

The History of Superman [Infographic]

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…. a Superman infographic! Today’s graphic from Mashable gives us a look at the history of one of America’s oldest and most iconic superheroes: the Man of Steel himself, Superman. Anyone who is familiar with his character likely knows some of Superman’s backstory already; his origins on plant Krypton, his weakness to Kryptonite and his long-standing struggle with arch nemesis Lex Luthor are all well-known bits of knowledge in Superman lore. Possibly a lesser-known fact about the Clark Kent / Lex Luthor struggle is that it originally began when the two of them were teenagers in the same town.

Superman is very thoroughly established in our fiction and popular culture, so it should be no surprise that he’s set to show up on the big screen again next month in “Man of Steel.” After Superman’s initial comic book success, the character really took off and began to branch out into mediums like TV shows (both animated and non-animated) and an entire series of films.

For more info on Superman’s history and future take a look at the graphic below. [Via]

10 Reasons to Visit Iceland [infographic]

I overheard an interesting conversation about Iceland last Saturday night. My children’s literature teacher, from a couple semesters back, just happened to be at a bar I was at, and was quite passionately giving a speech about the Icelandic people and their belief in elves. Yep, you read that right, elves. Those fairytale creatures that most of us grew up with, or read about in Lord of the Rings. A breed of beings that are commonly depicted as miniature humans, rumored to have pointy ears, and supposedly live on rocky terrain.

Elves are a part of Celtic folklore, and the people of Iceland regard them with respect. When I overheard my old teacher, he was discussing how pieces of land are often protected in Iceland because elves are believed to inhabit particular areas. Scheduled building-projects frequently cease in Iceland because of them.

Some of you may be thinking that this tradition is lunacy. Why would we stop the progress of our society for a group of mythical beings? But this folk tale seems to have at least helped a little with the human problem of over-development. And keeping alive a source of magic and wonder can’t be bad for the country’s morale. No, I think we should thank the elves for contributing to the preservation of this beautiful country. For the sake of its wildlife and culture.

But, back to why you’re here–the infographic! Here’s ten reasons why you should visit the magical land of Iceland as soon as possible! [Via]

Is College Still Worth It? [infographic]

May 4, 2013 |  by  |  Education  |  1 Comment

For most American high school graduates college is a no brainer. It is what you’re “supposed” to do after high school. We spend thousands of dollars to get a degree that, in today’s economy, may or may not get us a job. Some of us don’t even know what we are going to study. We blindly step onto campus hoping that something will pop out at us as interesting. When nothing catches our fancy, we settle for business, communication, or some other general degree. Alas, here we are, kicked out into the world of specialization when we are Jacks of all trades and masters at none.

Finals will end soon, and the metamorphosis from undergraduate to graduate is around the corner for many young adults. Was the 4 (or more) years really worth the money and sweat spent on an education? Should high school graduates be pushed into trade school where they can learn specialized skills to actually land them a job? There is no direct answer, but the thought is definitely worth considering.
