Feature Galore!

I am now the hap­pi­est wannabe web designer in the world. xD

Now I empha­sise that wannabe because in no way am I a full-fledged web designer/developer/coder. I may know a wee bit of Illus­tra­tor and Pho­to­shop and bits of HTML/CSS stuff here and there but that’s noth­ing. Seri­ously, who doesn’t know how to use Pho­to­shop these days?

That said, go easy on me okay?

Any­way, yes I’m bloody delighted cos for the past two weeks, my blog’s new design had been fea­tured on not one, but eight bloody design show­case sites (and count­ing!). That might not seem like a lot to you, cos there are hun­dreds of these sites out there. But it sure as hell seems a lot to me.

Featured on CSSclip

CSS­clip was the first CSS gallery to fea­ture my design on it on the 31st of March.

It means a lot too, when you see some­thing you work so hard for gain recog­ni­tion among the web design community.

Featured on Sharebrain

On that same day, Share­brain show­cased my blog on their web devel­op­ers resource site, under a header which I still think my blog is unwor­thy to be placed on.

A ton of these web­sites exist out there to offer inspi­ra­tion to web design­ers look­ing for well, inspi­ra­tion, for their next project.

Featured on CSSelite

CSSelite, the more pop­u­lar of the lot of CSS gal­leries, fea­tured my blog’s new design on the 3rd of March.

Its that proud feel­ing that when you get fea­tured on these very gal­leries that you used once upon a time for inspi­ra­tion your­self. Seri­ously, I was once a fre­quent lurker of CSS gal­leries eye­ing for inspi­ra­tion when design­ing tehCpeng.net.

Hav­ing the chance to actu­ally inspire oth­ers and give back to the com­mu­nity feels really great. =)

Featured on CSSbased

On 11th of April, a screen­shot of my blog appeared on the front page of the CSS based gallery.

Daily slurp give me a slot on their daily ‘slurp’ gal­leries on the same day.

So did WP Cube, a Word­Press pow­ered design show­case gallery.

Remem­ber those days when you race to get your artwork/essay/calligraphy/photo fea­tured on your school’s year­book? And the joy when they actu­ally make it into the pages? You get the pic­ture. =D

Featured on WP Zoom

As seen on WP Zoom, a Word­Press theme resource community.

W3C Sites, who brings web devel­op­ers that fol­low W3C stan­dards together, had my blog fea­tured under their editor’s picks.

Edit (19÷4÷08): Been also fea­tured on CMSShow­case, and We Love WP!

Being fea­tured on so many sites at once only means one thing, there’ll be scores of web design­ers and devel­op­ers drop­ping by!

..and if any you decide to take a peek at my messy and noobish code,
don’t laugh okay? =\

    You are fuck­ing famous! Here, let me be your friend…

    By the way, some­thing seems to be wrong with the pub­lished time. It’s just an hour since you pub­lished this, but the timer said it was eight hours ago.

    You’ll be sur­prised at how ‘famous’ its going to get.. Stuff like this only gives you that ran­dom drop by hits not loyal readers.

    I didn’t mean to brag but per­haps I just got caught up by being too happy to blog about it.

    Hrrrrmm. Damn. Now that you noticed it. No idea, might be one of Word­Press 2.5’s quirks. =\

    Wow, con­grat­u­la­tions! That’s awe­some, a pretty impres­sive achieve­ment, my friend. Keep it up! :D

  4. under a header which I still think my blog is unwor­thy to be placed on” .…

    hmmmm.… should i really remind me about this when you make the next ver­sion of your site? :-)

    Just kid­ding … keep up the great work. and your blog is not unwor­thy to be called “best look­ing” .… when you have to look at soooo much shitty designed sites out there like i have to do — then you know what i mean :-) :-) :-)

    all the best,
