More blog articles will follow, but this will be the first one to get things started.
This seems like an odd time of year to re-launch a website, (although I’m wondering if there is such a thing as a ‘good time of year’ for that matter!)
During a sleepy Sunday in mid-May, it’s also the day after the Eurovision Song Contest, so, some parts of the Internet are still suffering cultural shell-shock and a state of ‘WTF was that?!’
First time I’ve used Twitter’s ‘Bootstrap’ Framework.
This also means this is the first time I’ve made a site using Responsive Web Design (RWD)
In plain english: making a website (more) mobile-friendly in the internet browser.
Trying viewing this site on a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and it should work fine.
First time I’ve used a Front-End framework (Bootstrap) inside ExpressionEngine - the Content Management System (CMS).
This is the first site I’ve made without using Adobe Photoshop in a very long time.
This is also my first blog-post since sometime in late 2011 (okay, it shows!)
There’s a Featured Link that I plan to update every few weeks or so, and links to Respected Web Professionals (not listed in any specific order) ...do you recognise any of the names on there?
Also, this site’s 404 Error page has a kitten, really, what more do you want? ;)
Again, more blog articles will follow, and they’ll all be better than this one.
'Design is a Job' by Mike Monteiro

Very good, little book, worth a read!
