Friday focus…but it’s not even Friday!
Please excuse me for a rather late Friday Focus this week. It was the first time in a while that I didn’t pre-write the focus on Thursday, and when yesterday came around, I was out most of the day. Since I’ve wasted enough time getting this one going, let’s skip the pre-game pep talk and get right to the action.
Sites of the Week
Kicking off this week’s [late edition of] Friday Focus is 2G Media. I don’t know why, but I simply like this site. Maybe it’s the color combination, or some of the cool 3D work, but I just like it a lot.
Next up is Blog Action Day. A great design for an even better cause. Devlounge is being added as we speak. From the site: “On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind – the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.”
And finally this week is Problogger. Recently redesigned, Problogger now sports a very “portalish” look. It’s pretty neat if you ask me.
Design Float / Digg Weekly
Design – Hundreds of Free Icons for Webs and Desktops
Some really nice onces here. I like those gloss looking digg / technorati ones. I may put them to use. Just maybe ;).
Programming – Want to learn PHP? Easy!
A 15 part series that, according to the poster, are some of the best tutorials on php that they have ever read. I should probably look into some of these.
WordPress theme on the horizon
I’m working out one final css bug in my next upcoming WordPress theme, called Particles. It’s a very lightweight, speed and seo enhanced theme that allows you to quickly and easily build upon it. All together there are maybe six images used on the whole design, and it has a rather “unique” and different looking post setup than “most” standard designs. Watch for it in the coming days (possibly today if I get it fixed soon enough).
