8 Web Development and Design Blogs to Follow

My recent whimsical journey through the Web brought me to various web design & development blogs.

My reasons for discovering new Design & Development blogs were two-fold:

1. To further expand my knowledge of the Web.

2. To better my skills as a Web Developer.

The Selection Process

The following blogs were picked for the following reasons:

  • Extreme popularity.
  • The site design is creative & impressive.
  • The articles feature the types of knowledge I am seeking.
  • I love “the vibe”!

    First, Jennifer, I preordered your book from amozan and have been enjoying it very much since its arrival. I’ve been reading your blog for a few months and it’s fantastic. From your book, I allowed my daughter to go through and pick a few things to try. She picked the inari rolls, pepperoni pizzas, and the cute sandwich cutouts. Boy, was I surprised to see the canned inari rolls for $6.99/can at my local Asian grocer. But they’re imported, so … anyway, thanks for re-releasing the book. Wish you’d do a whole series. Just reading through this book tells me your’e a fantastic mom. You do so much for your son. Make the rest of us look bad. 🙂 And Happy B-day! September 1st is my birthday, too!
