2016 in Review

For those that have been keeping an eye on Web Design Weekly, you probably have noticed that things have been extremely quite… 😔

The first half of the year was quite productive. Lots of new articles, a range of site modification and great newsletter growth. It was shaping up to be a great year until August arrived. During the first half of the year my full-time job was pretty quiet so I had the motivation and energy to tinker and work on WDW in the evenings. That all changed pretty quick when we landed an awesome project at work and I was knee-deep in some pretty interesting development.
