Design Matters: Logos 01 Review

If you are interested in logo design this is the book for you. Really, there isn’t much more to say. It’s a beautiful book, the kind of book that is nice to just leave lying around and flick through.

Sometimes It’s Better to Hit Delete

For the second time in the history of this blog I have deleted a post. While that is an hour of my life I am not getting back I feel better for doing it. Anyone who grabbed the RSS up to about ten minutes ago will still be able to read it, but I am […]

I know you can’t get enough of me, right? Right? Well, OK, maybe you can šŸ™‚ Anyways … I’ve just been listening to the ProBlogger Confidential call I had with Andy Wibbels and his listeners. I’m not too ashamed of how I sound. More “ums and ahs” than I would hope for but at least […]

Does Your Site Frighten Readers Away?

When someone arrives at your website, be it a corporate site, personal site, or blog, they have a couple of questions on their mind: Where am I? What is there to see/do? Why should I care? Many times a potential reader will have these additional thoughts: Woah, what is this guy talking about? This looks […]

What is a Blog Post Really?

This post started out quite different. I was just going to tell you what I thought a Blog Post was, my definition, but then I thought it would be more interesting to open it up to you. The thought was prompted by a thread in the forum about an article by Jakob Nielsen advising people […]
