Typography, StumbleUpon, Digg, Repeat Visitors, Web 2.0 and CSS
This article is a summary of some of the best articles and content I have read recently.
Taking a look at the subscriber count of “I love Typography” I am one of many people who are loving this fresh new blog. Great stuff: 15 Excellent Examples of Web Typography.
Tara from Graphic Design Blog also posts about Typographic Inspiration.
Blog Strom discusses Why “Real” People think Digg Sucks. This article is interesting stuff. How often do you find dead links on the homepage of Digg. Lately digg’s success seems to be it’s worst enemy.
Dosh Dosh gives advice on How to get repeat visitors to your website. Some useful points taken from the article:
- Is your site populated enough to encourage participation?
- How does your site feel to 10 random people who have never visited it?
- Are you providing information that is coherent with your search keywords?
- Does your website project a unique, familiar and identifiable voice?
Sarah from Bluejar.com gives a nuts and bolts CSS image positioning tutorial. Sarah’s blog is a good read, she recently ran a very good “How To” group writing contest which I took part in.
Han from Eruanna guest posts for Rhys from The Gospel According To Rhys about How to make your blog design Web 2.0. My sincere condolences go out to Rhys, Wales were knocked out of the Rugby World Cup on the weekend, and I know Rhys is a fan.
I am still loving StumbleUpon, although I find it a terrible procrastination tool. Here is a useful resource page: Stumble Add-ons.
Heading into the festive part of the year consider checking out some gifts from this cool site.
On a personal note I am celebrating passing 100 RSS subscribers on Pingable, so I have decided to add a feed burner counter. Cheers to all those who have subscribed.
