12 Web design tools and blog ideas…

I am working on redesigning my wife’s photography blog the next couple of week’s. I am doing a complete redesign, re-branding and restructuring. I figured I could share some tools I am looking at as well as give some inspiration through two posts I’ve looked at. The first set of tools are ways to evaluate your website for speed, how the user thinks and design. My favorite on the list is Google Website Optimizer because it only takes 5 minutes and works amazingly well! Check out the full list of 12 tools at 1st Web Designer’s site.

The second site is some amazing blog designs that help inspire me when looking at Annie Agarwal Photography. These designs will help you with choosing colors, making a layout and how to the user interacts (and stays) with your blog. Be sure to look at Demain J’arrete (the whole thing is done comic book style!) and Thomas Bishop (simplicity).

What are some of your favorites?

***Edit, Google just released an App Creator for Android devices called the “App Inventor.”

  1. I really enjoyed reading your article, and it passed some time at the end of my shift 🙂 just to let you know thoe, when i first opened you page, avast went all crazy saying its a malicious url, and tried to block your site. might want to check into that. goto google webmaster tools and make sure your page has not been comprimised.

    Thanks

  2. Awesome web design resource list. You should share these tips on social media so that more people can read this. Also, when it comes to web design my favorite are the ones on the portfolio of MediaIdentity.com.
