Introduction to BoxedArt’s Web Design Blog

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

After 8 years online, BoxedArt has finally launched its first blog – better late than never. Most of you reading this are probably already familiar with blogs and regularly visit many of them. If you’re very green to the web and you’ve managed to never read a blog, it is basically a “web log” of the activities of a web site or information related to a particular topic. The purpose of BoxedArt’s Web Design blog will be to provide a source of updates for the web design related websites in BoxedArt’s network (The Big Resources network of sites), and also provide interesting or helpful news, tips, tidbits, and events that may not even be associated with BoxedArt. So, come back often, as we plan on providing you with information that is helpful, interesting, sometimes humorous, and often inspiring as frequently as possible. Thanks for reading.
