One Hundred

Sitting in a little co-working space and pushing “send” on the first Web Design Weekly was a long time ago. 2 years, 1 month and 1 day to be exact. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Lots of late Thursday nights frantically compiling. Crazy amounts or scanning feeds, tweets and emails. Lots of early Friday mornings proof-reading. All usually after crazy hectic days at work. Quite often I have even put off heading to the climbing gym or skipping on a run so I can get the newsletter out. I don’t really like this part. It’s self induced, but I care about WDW. It’s kinda crazy how little side projects can do that to you.

Curating the newsletter is super fun. Some weeks are hard, some weeks are a chore, some weeks are easy and some weeks are rewarding. As long as it continues to remain fun I’ll continue hitting the send button.

A huge thanks to all that support the newsletter. It means a lot. I should have some swag arriving soon so I’ll be sure to pass it on to you!

To everyone that subscribes, thanks!!! I hope you continue to find it a useful resource.
