As I take my first deep dive into the new WordPress Site Editor, I’m stream-of-consciousness blogging the experience for future reference. Hopefully this will benefit others too!
RSS is a simple, old, and perfect technology that’s been around forever and is just as good now as it was ten years ago. It’s time you gave RSS another look.
I just thought of the perfect (and very obvious in retrospect) example to help explain why nonprofit website menus should never match their org charts.
In 2022, I launched two major redesigns and countless other projects along with one human being. It was quite the year, and here’s the recap.
Why do people put bad design elements and features on their websites? Information cascades are a good way to think about it.
I was on a podcast discussing my proposal for improving how the WordPress block editor handles CSS.
Day 3 of the 2022 conference brought a keynote about a local equitable housing initiative and my web accessibility Ask Me Anything session. Plus, online conferences are still hard on attendees.
Whenever you can, don’t use images of text, just type out the text. There are an overwhelming number of reasons why.
Day 2 of the 2022 conference saw me attend one session about improving facilitation that fosters racial justice through “micropractices.”
Day 1 of the 2022 conference included a keynote all about technology in nonprofits, a presentation by one of my clients, and a brand new name and logo for Washington Nonprofits!
The final day of 22NTC was a fun grab bag! I learned and talked about WordPress and CRMs, data visualization, inclusive presentations, and ended the day listening to author Saeed Jones.
Today included three really fun community conversations—the “hallway track” of this online conference—and then a lot of sessions about including stakeholders in technology projects, usability testing, and the combination of the two!
Day 1 of 22NTC is in the books! I went to lots of sessions about inclusion, disability, and accessibility. And also WordPress, of course!
This is a proposal to use CSS utility classes for common layout needs and access to site-specific design tokens set in theme.json so that core, theme, and plugins have access to a standardized CSS toolkit. The result is a WordPress landscape where core is easier to extend and themes and plugins are more interoperable.
I always tell my clients that they need to celebrate their victories. So it’s time to follow my own advice. Building off my site launches from last year, I wanted to quickly recap some of the other exciting things I did and built in 2021.
In 2021, I launched eight websites for clients new and old. They each posed interesting challenges that resulted in a unique array of sites I’m proud to share.
