Hi There!
I'm Anike, a freelance designer working through oDesk.com. I stubbled upon this site yesterday and it intrigued me (mostly the money part). I have never blogged before and this is my first attempt. Not really sure what the content should be, but I'll figure that out.
Just to give you a general idea of me, my blogs will mostly be about handy tricks and effects in Adobe Photoshop. I use Adobe Photoshop CS3, so I have no idea whether my advice and tips will work on the latter versions, but give it a try, it won't hurt. I'm not an expert but I know that many aren't and any bit of knowledge helps.
I'll be keeping you posted.
Anike.

April Fools - Who's fooling who

Looking back at my youth, I dont think I can remember one single year that I thought about tricking someone on April Fools Day. So I realy cant say what was going on with me this year. I dont know if it was the fact that I was in a silly mood or that the stars had been aligned for this crazy occurance.

I decided to pull a silly prank and tell some of my friends some silly thing that obviously wasnt true. I even tried to get my boyfirend to pull a prank with me. Before getting anywhere with my pranks that I had cooked up, I read something that changed my mind immediately! I went on to facebook and read a post by a good friend of mine. He was urging everyone to stop with all the pranks as some had gotten way out of control.

A friend of his thought it would be funny to play prank his mom. He told his mom that his baby brother had been in a freak accident and had died. This resulted in the mother having to be hospitalised as she had had a heart attack upon hearing the news.

The silly dam fool gave his mom a heart attack. I mean seriously out of all the things people could think to do! Well I think his prank failed because now he will forever be remembered as the family jack ass. I am sure that will be the last time he takes part in the crazy festivities of April Fools Day.

As for me, I now realise why I was never into it to begin with. There are just some things that people should not joke about!
