It’s no secret that I’ve been more active here on my website of late, and that coincides with the turning of the New Year. You see, most of us make resolutions – which usually consists of “I’m going to do this” and “I’m planning on doing that.”
For me, one of the biggest things I want to focus on as we head into 2012 is teaching people what I’ve learned. And so I have a plan in place.
Get on With it, What’s to Come
Ok, so one area that I wanted to focus on is blogging. While most of the people I encounter online are more advanced when it comes to WordPress and blogs, there are some folks who simply are new and under informed.
So I will be starting a series called Blogging 101, which will talk about Blogging Basics, Creating Content, Getting Traffic, Promoting Your Blog and more.
Here’s a list of the first three articles in that series:
More to come…
Another Resolution for the New Year
Recently I have spent a lot of time researching various elements of design and trying to understand the best practices that many successful designers use.
Part of that is simply for my own personal gain, but more importantly I want to acquire this knowledge so that we can apply it to the way we develop new (and update existing) child themes.
A few days ago I came across the 1140px CSS Grid System developed by Andy Taylor. Because I’m a hands on person, I decided to spend some time building out my own version of the 1140px CSS Grid System on my site to see how it worked.
Here’s what the 1140px Grid System is all about:
The 1140 grid fits perfectly into a 1280 monitor. On smaller monitors it becomes fluid and adapts to the width of the browser. Beyond a certain point it uses media queries to serve up a mobile version, which essentially stacks all the columns on top of each other so the flow of information still makes sense.
Go ahead and check out it – reduce your browser window to see how it responds.
Code Snippets and Tutorials
I love writing these – as it gives me a chance to document stuff that I personally use, but also to provide it for the community to see.
So if you’re a fan of learning – whether it be with blogging, with design or with WordPress and the Genesis Framework, I highly encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter below. Good stuff will come.
