5 Ways to Make Readers Give You Their Sweet Comments

Posted in Blogging, Tips, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 13 Comments

Websites like Cracked and Listverse get more reaction from their audience than any other website on the internet. And why is that? Let’s face it, we all enjoy reading interesting and weird stuff about anything. While websites focused on designing and development, as compared to the most commented websites, are a little dry when it comes to discussions. Why?

1. Because articles about design and development rarely lack intrigue. People love intriguing things.
2. Most of the time it’s spoon-feeding. It’s like reading a book where everything is already in place.

It’s an unfair world. There are niches that just don’t get much discussion even though they’re noticed. But there are several things you can do to increase the likelihood of people to engage in discussions. How? By creating a discussion, of course!

Code Editor Review: Sublime Text

Posted in Tools, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 30 Comments

As a designer and developer, I’m always trying to find the best possible tools to do my job and to have fun with it. I’m both a PC and Mac user, Notepad, Coda, Textmate, Dreamweaver, Komodo and Aptana are some of the many editors I’ve tried but none of those made an impact as big as Sublime Text.

Although it is still in beta, Sublime Text is in my opinion the best text/code editor in the market which is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. There is nothing like trying and seeing for yourself but its features, aesthetic, usability and price (although it has an unlimited trial at the moment) made me want to write about it.

“Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, html and prose. You’ll love the slick user interface and extraordinary features.”
