lovely blogs

Since I’m working on a complete redesign of my corporate website right now, I spend a fair amount of time browsing over some of the web showcase sites for inspiration. I stumbled on one that caters to the blog-only crowd, called Lovely Blogs, run by college student Ben Bleikamp.

Lovely Blogs is a design showcase, similar to Stylegala or CSS Beauty. Unlike those two sites, the focus is 100% on blogs. Along with showcasing the best looking blogs online there will be articles teaching people how to make their blogs look lovelier – from customizing a template to using a editing a plug in to match your site.

BS-dudeI love the idea of small, usable (or edible) tips and tricks for implementing web standards into current and new sites. The idea of a complete standards overhaul (or new design from scratch, for that matter) can be quite daunting…and time consuming. Bite Size Standards is a great idea that should become insanely popular within the design community.

Bite Size Standards aims to offer concise web development tutorials, tips and tricks. Written by designers and developers who are passionate about web standards.

I want Crazy Egg

crazy egg

I am dying to try out Crazy Egg. Of all the Web 2.0 over-hyped betas getting ready to launch, this is one I’m eagerly awaiting. I think Crazy Egg will be an incredibly valuable tool…especially for fairly lazy marketing and design folk like myself. Web logs are great and all, but I would love a visual tool to detail clicks, etc.

For more information on Crazy Egg, read the TechCrunch review and Read Pete Cashmore’s write up.

On a similar, but more basic front, I’ve just started testing Mapsurface which a little snapshot tracking widget that might be pretty handy also. Check out Andy Budd’s review for more info.
