I wanted to stop by and wish all the contestants the best. It can be a lot of fun if you don't take it so seriously that you are all stressed out about it. I'll be checking out your entries and might find a bit of time to play along.

Now for a tip I learned about downloading from 4shared and all those other places: a free download manager called Mipony. I've been using it for awhile and it is a headache saver. You don't see the popup ads or have to keep checking on 4shared. Just copy the URL, and click "download selected" and it does the work for you.

Well that's pretty cool, Linda! Thanks for the link!

Also, those of you who have a Windows live ID or hotmail account can use Skydrive for file hosting... it's a direct download, no waiting time and no limit on bandwidth or storage... I've been using it for blog freebies and people love it!

The only bad thing about skydrive is it doesn't keep track of downloads... so I recommend using a URL shortener service, like bit.ly to track clicks on the link to get an estimate of how many times it's been downloaded

Is there any reason to keep track of the number of downloads? For the contest I mean? Or is it just for one's ego?

Usually just for the ego.... at least it has never mattered in any other contest I have participated in.

In my experience, knowing how many have downloaded your freebie is a bit depressing sometimes, because so few leave any love. But that's just me LOL. I have my own hosting with godaddy so I give direct links for my freebies through my own ftp.

The best way to learn is through experience, I am a newbie designer but this might just be the push I need to get going on my designs! Join us!
