Just Another Web Design Blog?
“OH NO!” I hear you cry! “Not another web design blog!”, well yes and no. Clearly it is a web design blog but fingers crossed that it isn’t just another web design blog. I plan to use this blog as a place to write about anything that captures my imagination and might in some way relate to the world of web design and freelancing.
Whether it is HTML/CSS/jQuery, photography, typography, architecture, music, fashion… anything! If it inspires me or I think that it may be useful to the community in some way I will write about it. I also hope to write articles which may be useful to clients or people looking for web designers. Lets face it websites wouldn’t exist if weren’t for clients who needed them, so the better informed both sides of the web design fence are, the better the future of the web will be.
“Discussion and debate is important, it makes us think through how and why we do things and if we listen, ultimately makes us all better at what we do.”
I may not always have all the answers and may occasionally write things that people disagree with, but that is fine. I want this blog to be more of a discussion than a lecture from me. If you disagree with anything that I say, then great! Tell me and put your opinions in the comments. Discussion and debate is important, it makes us think through how and why we do things and if we listen, ultimately it will make us all better at what we do.
Some Future Articles to Come
Here are a few of the topics I hope to write about over the next few months.
- Open source web design, is it viable?
- Should SEO just happen as part of the design process?
- How to choose a web designer for your project.
- Why professional design is important to the success of your website.
- How to use social media for your business.
I am always trying to think of new topics and continuing the discussion theme of this blog I am keen to hear from you. Do you have any topics that you would like to be discussed? Please feel free to ask me any questions or give your topic suggestions in the comments. Thanks for reading, hopefully there will be something more interesting to follow very soon.
