1. Personal Reflections
This week it is not easy for me. We started to list more technical posts on my blog. For example, we introduced HTML/CSS table design, Apps button design in WPF and HTML5. Everything should spend a lot of time on it. But I feel that it is a good way to help people and attract more UI fans. I feel that we have started to get more comments from our readers, it makes me happy the whole week. We try to reply every comment and try to give the best help to readers.
2. A Digest of Their 3 Best Posts for the Week
This week, Will started to publish more post on our blog, I really appreciate those contributions from him. We think I still need to balance our website post content. On the other hand, we will keep updated on some design life posts which there are more UI fans. While, we will keep on posting more technical posts to help people design code for their real life website or web apps design. Now, it is time to pick up three best posts for this week. This time I have just listed three posts from Anna and Will’s posts wasn’t included this time.
WPF button design
There are two templates for your windows button design. The software I used for those two buttons is Microsoft Expression Blend. That is a very good one for design, even if you don’t have any coding experiences, you still can make your apps button in coding. This software’s interface design is very colorful like Adobe Photoshop. So if you are familiar on how to operate and the interface of Photoshop, I am sure you will get it easy to design stuff on Microsoft expression blend.
B. Holiday website design specialists
We want to post stuff before Easter day. We got this idea from one of our readers’ comment that is we have taken advantage for peak search periods. For example, if the website teaches readers how to make Indian food, it will find people searching for holiday recipes before those holidays. I really appreciate our fans idea! It is very cool. We will keep creating more posts like that.
C. HTML/CSS table building examples (3 finish)
That one I shared a few table design in CSS, I feel that it is a good post because it can help UI fans for their real life web table design directly. This is our new tag post too, that is the design note. I hope readers learn enough from our new topic tag. Thus in this post, I also listed two tables design and I hope our readers can join us to code those two table images into CSS.
3. Lessons learned during the week
I feel our blog is so lucky when I read those 800 comments in our dashboard. My “baby” website just started for 5 weeks ago, but it already has a lot of friends post, guest posts for us and leave a lot of great comments for us. All of those wonderful things will encourage me to keep working hard on our blog and leave more valuable post for our fans.
4. Next steps/goals for the coming week
A. There is already 80+ posts in our blog since it open. And we have already have 800+ comments at least. We do need to learn and discuss how to deal with those wonderful comments. If we keep post 3 posts at our free time, we really don’t have time to read all of those comments. But we really wants to reply certain great comments every day. So that is next step our main job which need to consider about.
B. I feel our blog is strong enough to make it rock. That is mean we will start organize those posts which we did before to more search engine friendly post, and make it more SEO searching post. That will spend a lot of time to figure out. But we will get return back when we finish those jobs.
