For this week I want to share with you something really cool! It’s another awesome thing provided by GOOGLE! (I am falling more and more in love with everything GOOGLE, but that’s another BIZ TIP…) Check out this link: https://developers.google.com/chart/ — It’s GOOGLE CHARTS! With GOOGLE CHARTS you can create some very groovy data to share with your peeps and on your website. AND another very groovy thing about it is you can use the community forum to get help, to ask questions, to share the graphics you have created. You can even check out graphics that the peeps in the forum have created and learn from them what grabs your attention and what doesn’t, what turns you on and what turns you off… OH and the BEST part about using GOOGLE CHARTS is that it’s absolutely FREE! Go check it out!
