Back in 2008 I had been playing around with my little Blog.SpoonGraphics site for about a year and I was starting to see some nice traffic growth. I then discovered Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) and absorbed all his advice on how to “crush it” in order to make a living doing what you love. I put his tips into practice and 5 years of hard work later and I’m now running this site as my full time job. The man himself then contacted me out of the blue just a couple of weeks ago to offer a free copy of his new book Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook for review. How could I resist?
The Thanks Giving holiday isn’t something I’ve ever celebrated being a Brit, but the idea of giving thanks for what you’re grateful for is something we can all relate to. One area of my life I’m hugely appreciative of is the opportunity to run this website not only as a hobby but to also earn a living. All that wouldn’t be possible without my awesome friends, fans and followers who have taken the time to browse my content, so in today’s special post I give thanks to everyone in the SpoonGraphics community and share some link love to those who really stand out.

A couple of week’s ago, I ran a deal on my Access All Areas membership with my friends over at Design Cuts. It was a huge success, with over 1000 of you grabbing the deal and joining the SpoonGraphics community. Design Cuts are currently running a brand new deal on Go Media’s Ultimate Vector Collection. The collection includes 1360 of Go Media’s most popular vectors for 93% off, and is their biggest vector pack of all time.
I regularly post links to interesting design tutorials and articles over on my Twitter and Facebook accounts, but in case you missed them here’s a roundup of my top pickings from my recent browsing of the web. This month we have some great content from Tutorialzine, Psdtuts+, Veerle’s Blog, Ben Brush Design and Vectortuts+.
There’s less than 12 hours left to grab my SpoonGraphics membership for 92% off, after that the deal will be gone forever. For the past 2 weeks I’ve partnered up with the creative guys at Design Cuts to offer an unprecedented deal for my readers. You can get an entire year’s SpoonGraphics membership for just $7, which includes over 950 incredibly valuable design resources.
