Being a fairly active Twitterer and follower of a number of web design blogs, I’ve gathered a useful set of links to ‘themed’ website collections that I turn to for inspiration when thinking about the design of a new site. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve visited again and again.

Color and Texture



Okay, so I’m starting late. Anyway…

Today’s assignment is to write an elevator speech for this blog. I think the tagline is already pretty well focused on what this blog’s for and may just work as my elevator speech, too – ‘things I learn as a designer of websites.’ That takes into account a lot of things – code snippets, techniques, dealing with clients, motivation, business tools and practices. When I started this blog I kind of thought it would be about design, but it’s really about the whole gamut of running a business as an independent designer and developer.

Wow, that was easy. I think I’m done.

I’m looking for a WordPress calendar for a client that will let him:

  • color-code his events by type;
  • let him use icons to represent different events;
  • let him include photos and larger images in calendar posts.

So far EasyPHP Calendar seems the best choice, but I’d have to integrate it into a page in WordPress.
