  1. Anyone else tired of the layout like Six Revisions has? I see it everywhere now. Content in the left hand and little boxes showing affiliates in the right hand column. It’s even used here. I feel like I’m visiting the same sites all the time. Maybe it’s just the constraints of using a CMS, but I just can’t help but feel tired of the same look on the blog sites.

  2. I will get on this list one day:) In a meantime I’m adding only quality content on blog about design.
    I bet, when in the beginning on your blogging career you, Chris felt extremely proud seeing your blog mentioned somewhere else in the blogosphere.
    Now it must be nice feeling to have so many loyal followers :)
    Hope soon the student will surpass her master (:
    Well done Chris
