  4. Found half of them from my twitter account. Now I need to frre up some time to read the other half from here. Jeez!

    Nice post.

  5. great collection i was thinking of such wonderful blogs at one place and this is the place to check for. thanks keep up the good work.

  6. That’s definitely a great list, and all of those sites are essential to web designers, and graphic designers too even.

  7. This is an awesome compilation! You will know if a Website or blog is effective in communicating to its targeted audience when you meet the needs of your visitors. They will get your message why your site or blog exists and its reason for existence. Some of their reasons for visiting your site are for information, entertainment, and education.

  8. Wow great list – and I really appreciate the mention! I’m with Liam on this one, it really does mean a lot and I think the design community really truly supports each other which is a great feeling.

  9. Very interesting design..I’ll be using one of the designs to be my template next time..thanks for sharing….

  10. You did not include UI patterns which according to me is one of the best blogs out there. Real workable advice there.

  11. I always visit SmashingMagazine.Com, an all-around blog with a MASSIVE updates on designs. It is a must-visit site for web designers.

  12. great list))) blogs are really cool and creative))
    I hope one day one blog also will be in this list. How do you think guys i have a chance or i is only a dream?

  13. I want to thank you for sharing the article to us and we will be used in everyday life to thank you very much

  14. is is another great ‘mutual benefit’ I learned from Denise’s blog. While sharing her clients’ success stories, not only they were in the spotlight but Denise’s efforts were credited too. I’m sure Denise didn’t ask them to do so, but out of their appreciation to Denise’s work, they are more than willing to mention her. It may be something you’d like to try out, see it more as a relationship building with your clients. Set a special segment for their Success Stories – apart from a little exposure and inspire your readers, your quality work may be highlighted too. Best of both worlds, I’ll say.

  15. I love the Bartel Me Design. It’s my favorite among the rest. Can I ask you what your inspirations are and if you ever get frustrated and out of ideas? What do you do in times like that? How do you handle pressure and stress?

  16. Great post! I always follow smashing magazine. They have some of the best articles and are very easy to follow, this gives me a great many more blogs to follow, thanks!

  17. Its a Great Resource for web design..Thanks for sharing..You will also need graphic design service as there are certain elements of your websites that need highlights through graphics (e.g. banner, header, etc.). Your website’s graphic is crucial particularly when funneling visitors’ information through opt-ins. It helps in converting visitors to customers.
