Today, I'm starting what I intend to become an ongoing series of "link roundup" articles for the blog. I'm always coming across great articles on the web and on other blogs, but it wouldn't be practical to make a whole post about each one. So, I thought I'd try what it seems a lot of other blogs do and create regular posts which compile all of these links in one place with a few comments from me on each one.
So, my first attempt at a title for this is "Stuff to read." You might find this extremely boring or perhaps you think it is super-cool in a simplistic kind of way. If you have a better idea for a title, I'm open so leave me a comment and maybe I'll use it. Anyway, now onto this issue's links. You'll have to forgive me that some of these are a little older. Since this is the first issue I'm pulling some stuff from a month or so back.
- Google Calendar from Vitamin: I love Google Calendar. I use it personally and we use it here at the office. Love, love love it. So, I naturally enjoyed this little article which gives a nice insight into the product and how it can be used for business compared to other options available.
- Tools to Compare fonts online from Smiley Cat Web Design: Here's a nice resource on some handy tools available to let you test web fonts and stuff with different styles. I really liked playing around with some of these. Very handy.
- 25 Open Source Web Design Programs and Tools You Should Already Know About from Design Vitality: I know it says I should have already known about these, but I didn't, so I found this very useful. It's like a bunch of free software that can take the place of Dreamweaver. See what you think.
- 65 Excellent Flash Designs from Smashing Magazine: Be careful. You can spend hours staring at some of these amazing works.
- 10 Forums for Web Designers and 10 Blogs for Web Designers from Tutorial Blog: Both are great resources for some places to find out great information about web design. Of course, since I'm subscribed to most of these then I'll bring you the creme of the crop articles through these roundup posts so hey, just read our blog and you'll be set!
