Reddit Russian101 - The Alphabet (Part 2)

This video by Reddit Russian 101 is a great exercise in practicing your ability to spell with the letters in the Cyrillic alphabet. It goes with their video Reddit Russian101 - The Alphabet (Part 1). They suggest in the video to get some practice in with the alphabet before these exercises. In my list of resources for Learning Russian Online, I've separated these videos in the timeline.

This video is a great reminder not just to read a bunch of words Russian and try
to memorize them. Take the time to listen to the language and try to write them down yourself. Even if you get it wrong, you'll be exercising a different skills that will help you in the long run.

I found completing the exercises #1 and #2 easy because I type using Google translate.

Don't be afraid to try exercise #3! But, keep in mind that successfully writing down the long sentence at the end of the video would be much easier with even more experience with Russian grammar and words.

As for myself, I've will set myself a reminder to come back in a few months and try to write the sentence after I have some more experience.

Exercise #3 starts about 6:50 into the video.

The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.

Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.

As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.

I just got done watching Michael Phelps get his 8 for 8 gold medals.
