Podcasting can be daunting for a number of reasons.  Some people don’t have time to mix together, edit, and publish their podcasts.  Others simply hate hearing the sound of their own voice (I honestly fall into this category at times).  And still others are bound by technical or financial limits.  While I can’t help you […]

By: Mitch Canter

CSS Transitions, when used properly, are a great way to provide a bit of eye candy to your site.  Providing movement and motion, either upon scroll or reveal of content, is a great way to subtly draw a viewer’s attention.  It’s also a way, unfortunately, to annoy the ever-loving crap out of your readers.  When […]
