The list of successful bloggers & interesting blogs – Focus: Tech, Design & Web Trends …

December 23, 2009

This is a revised version of my earlier post ‘Internet Heroes!’  I have transformed it to compilation of my favourite tech centric bloggers, sources and news sites which can help us gain information related to technology trends.  Though If I do it all it would be a massive list to compile, I am starting small and will keep adding to through a series of post … best way to keep a watch on subsequent posts to come is to subscribe through RSS or through email. (for those who are new to RSS, must check beginner’s guide to essential web technologies.)

“Legends are legends … they inspire us, set trends, break barriers, redefine rules, change the dimensions in which we live, give us new hopes & aspirations and much more …”

Sharing here the list of bloggers / & blogs I find interesting to follow …

Blogs For Designers …

If you are a frontend developer or a designer, you would be in absolutely in love with Smashing Magazine and Web Designer Depot, they often come up with very interesting compilations useful for frontend developers and CSS techniques and designer’s compilations. These are my personal favourites. Another interesting one which seems to be focusing on tutorial compilation for designers is hongkiat.com, very interesting compilation of tutorials and topics. And another very interesting blog I have come across in this genre is Carsonified’s Think Vitamin.
