Website Design Resources
Everybody that has a specialty usually took great care to develop it. For years I’ve been designing top-performing websites, and have always had online website design resources which I’ve turned to so I could learn new things, and keep my finger on the pulse of the rapidly changing and face-paced industry that is web design.
Let’s think of my favorite resources, Twitter, Facebook, and of course Google. Although I use Bing and Yahoo as well. And while no one source is enough to keep up with the steady flow of blog posts, articles and code snippets, flowing forth from keyboards everywhere, I’m hoping that with a little help from paper.li, my new web design resource site, The Design Index Daily will at least be a go-to site that has most of what I need in a single glance.
While everything’s not perfect as far as topic selection, I’ve already found a lot of useful information there. With a little bit more tweaking, I feel as though this paper.li driven website can be my perfect "morning coffee" companion. After all, designers that don’t constantly read something about their field of endeavor will quickly fall behind, and stepping back in take some real doing!
Design trends shift daily. The technologies and companies that drive the Internet forward rise and fall like the waves off Panama City Beach!
As I said above, there’s some tweaking I plan on doing, but I am letting some metrics build as well before I mess around with it too much. It’s getting some nice shares right away, and that’s a great signal. If you happen to be interested, you can similarly create your own site based on any keywords, or hashtags on Twitter. With built-in promotional tools, paper.li really seems a painless way to create and curate something that is truly useful to people.
Information overload is omnipresent, and the software behind paper.li does most of the heavy lifting.
I do of course recommend the pro version, but there’s a free version as well. I am currently using the pro version with a custom domain, and custom header. So use and share the site! Enjoy!
Thanks for looking. – Elmer
