Golden Sunrise Business Cards

Add any of your personal contract information to create your own business cards. Anyone can easily replace this image of bright clouds at dawn with your own digital image, and change the font color to coordinate with your photograph. These particular clouds were found one morning not all that far from Bellingham, Washington while at sea.

Market Math ~ Planning Your Planting

I've already had people stop by my blog looking for FarmVille Tips, and I didn't have any. After I saw that other people will be more than happy to sell you a book filled with FarmVille tips, I decided to offer up some free tips here on my blog. The images are linked to my Flickr account (which was a question on a game show recently and the person didn't know Flick was all about photos).

Market Math ~ Planning Your Planting

You will save yourself a lot of time if you plan your planting on FarmVille. The first step is to figure out how many plots that you have on your farm. This is a new farm below with the capabilities of 12x12 or 144 plots. In this case, four of the plots are taken up by cute gifts and stuff already, so this farmer can plant only 140 plots.

Empty Fields

AND... being a dirt farmer, this Farmer Girl only has 3,835 coins to do the planting with. There are crops that would work, but having a life outside FarmVille this farmer realized they needed at least 8 hours before they could harvest the crop. Pumpkins would do the trick. The trick then would be to divide the coins (3835) by 30 and realize ahead of time that all this farmer can plant is 127 plots.

Market Math

This is important because FarmVille will let you plant every plot on a farm even if you don't have enough coins.

Planting Crops

When you overplant, FarmVille will ask...

Hey There

if you'll buy some of their coins.

You would have to wait while the farmer goes through the motions of planting those 13 extra plots. Waiting for thirteen extra plots didn't take long, but over time the extra seconds can really add up. So, do your market math before heading to the store.

NOTE: This is different from FarmTown, which will stop you automatically when you run out of coins.
