I may have mentioned at some point that I have a penchant for design blogs. Not only are they beautiful and pretty much free from strife, design bloggers are at the forefront of the private blog advertising movement. I’m not quite sure how it happened, but the average design blog tends to be consistently covered […]
I’ve been trying to increase the speed of my website lately, both through some changes that are being done for me by somebody professionally, as well as through optimizing the CSS files that govern the style of this website. So I was excited to see this article from Perishable Press on optimizing CSS. Among other […]
I’m totally annoyed I already bought a case for my Kindle, because this Moleskine Kindle Cover has got to be the coolest one I’ve seen yet. (Via Better Living Through Design.) Hey everybody, we’ve got a new featured blogger ad up and running! Please check out Marcy at The Glamorous Life Association in the sidebar […]
