The LoveDsgn Story

Zero to 200,000 page views and 1000 members in less than 30 days. A brand new domain, no advertising. That’s the sort of website launch our clients convince themselves of but never see. Nobody is talking about a website they’ve never heard of, nobody is searching for something they didn’t know existed. And yet I sat […]

Ideas of March

If you haven’t read an Ideas of March post yet they all start by explaining what an Ideas of March post is. I’m just going to link to Chris Shiflett’s 2012 update. I believe I’m suppose to write about writing. When I started this blog in 2008 post-graduation it began as a tiny link hidden away in the […]

Whatever “support” entails, browsers that don’t make the cut are universally ignored with much delight and little chance of being usable. It’s common practice to maintain a list […]

Spring Cleaning

May 2011 — I redesigned my website (this website) with the primary goal of making it responsive. I was happy with the result and it has served me well, but it also lacked some of the finesse of previous iterations. Never being satisfied, I deciding to partake in a little spring cleaning. Well, a little turned into […]
