Layered Template - August 2008 Planner



Happy August! :) I had fun with this word art -- I hope you enjoy it, too. And a little note about the photo of the kiddos -- lets just say I love Photoshop! This is 2 photos compiled together so both kids are on the slide together. It's amazing what you can do with a little photo manipulation! LOL!

I have a serious question for you guys... when you're on either my blog or the 4shared site, do you see ads? Either pop-up or on-site? The reason I ask: a person left a comment at 4shared that essentially said, "I love your kits, but the porn isn't my thing" (she described the image). I'm appalled that somehow someone may see anything even remotely offensive/sexual attached to my site/work. So first off: I apologize! But second -- has anyone else had porn thrown in their face when visiting my site? If so, please let me know further details (where it came from, what kind, etc) -- because I absolutely want to address it with either Blogger or 4shared (or wherever it's coming from). That's appalling to me, and I'm deeply sorry if anyone has seen something they didn't expect to see. I absolutely don't endorse that either!

Anyway... August can be downloaded HERE. (link removed)

Personally I ave seen ads on 4shared but I haven't seen any porn there... which I HAVE at ALL other file sharing sites I have visited... I am NOT saying it isn't there... I just haven't seen it.

I haven't seen any porn (thankfully) on 4shared only advertisements that are a little out there. On the other file sharing sites it is aweful. You work and site are very inspiring to me and I want to thank you again and again for being a voice for our God! Right now I am listening to one of my alltime favorite songs on your blog, Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone. Thank you for unlifting us and sharing your creativity.

Hey Sarah! You know, the porn is on 4shared, not blogger. I have liked 4shared for the fact that it was "cleaner" than other sites, at least there were no offensive images. Lately, though, they have had pornographic images (large can't miss it type) right above the download button. (They were the size of your slide show.) I thought it was a fluke the first time...

I love your August template--thank you so much for spending your time blessing us with these amazing gifts! :)

Your work is awesome! Thanks! I must have a good blocker. I use Firefox for my browser and have Ad Block Plus on. I very rarely see any ads anymore, and I never see ads of 4shared. But, again, I think that's because of the Ad Blocking elements I have going on. I recommend them to anyone!

Sara...4 shared does do flash ads that at times could have obscene images. (We use firefox and my husband added a flash blocker so all I see is an arrow) You might want to consider encouraging people to get a flash blocker as almost all free download sites have some type of obscene material on them if not porn.(we installed it because I didn't like half dressed girls showing up on my computer in front of my little boys)
Thank you for all you do and for the love of God on your blog.

Sarah, I did see a flash ad on 4shared the other day, and it was VERY suggestive. Not sure if it was from your download, but I was shocked. However, I knew that it was 4shared doing it, not the designer who stored the file there! And its the only time in a year that I've seen one like that.

Thanks for the August calendar - and I appreciate your stand for Christ. The scripture you've been including is perfect. Thanks so much, what a blessing you are!
In Christ...

Sara said...

Sarah, I haven't NEVER seen porn or anything questionable on your blog. I haven't had a problem with really nasty stuff on 4shared, either, but I have blockers for that junk. Thank you for your concern, though. It is rare that people care what they see on the Internet anymore. Thanks for thinking of us and giving us an uplifting, calming place to visit. The freebies are great, but they are just gravy on your message of faith you share every day. Thank you, again! (Oh! and the music...LOVE IT!)

Thank you for the template. The other day was thew first time I had seen anything ofensive on 4 shared, either here or elsewhere. From the testimony you give with your downloads (and your music video) I knew that you were propably not aware of it, and that you would not approve. Thank you for addressing it, and for writing to 4 shared.

Hi Sarah,
I have not seen anything on your blog, but I did see a lot of offensive material when I went to download at 4shared. It's not your fault. Maybe a hacker got in there. I just scrolled down, so it wouldn't be visible to my eyes. I know you are a Christian and would not intentionally put these things out there. It's something going on with 4shared. Keep up the great work with your kits and calendars. God Bless You!

Thanks so much for this lovely template !

Thank you so much for making these available to us! It's so generous of you! Just think how many people you will have touched with these once the Christmas gifts we make with them have been opened! Bless you!

elnorac said...

One more thing - I haven't seen any inappropriate stuff when downloading your (or anyone else's) stuff from 4shared. I do have pop-ups blocked; hope the problem is cleared up soon.

What a wonderful template. Thank you. I have come across some ads on 4-shared that have been less than desirable, but I don't recall if they were when I was downloading something from you or not. In any case, I never attributed it to the designer but to 4-shared. I just read what you wrote above and think you have addressed it quite professionally and responsibly. Now it is up to 4-shared to keep an eye on their own service.

Thanks so so much. I am so excited to use these templates. Your work is amazing. I am so glad that you put bible verses on these templates. You have been so gracious to share these with us. God bless you.
