I’m experimenting with a new format for Links Loved that would be a fast favorite “share as I stumble upon it” type of post. I call it Small Link, Big Love. Each post will be a link to a single site with very little or no commentary. This idea has gone through a few design cycles already. It began simply as a Twitter account. Then, I thought it would be cool to create a new blog dedicated to links only. So, in the first two weeks of May I set up Links Loved, The Blog. In doing so, I was able to experiment with site takeovers and clickable backgrounds (more about this later!). Anyway, as soon as I began posting links on the new site, I realized that I had optimistically underestimated how much time it would take to maintain it. I now had one too many web sites on my plate, and not enough time to give every site the attention it needed. So I decided to stop development of Links Loved. It’s still online, but I’m not updating it. Instead, I’m going to post links here on Pugly Pixel as I find them.
So, for now, at least, this is the last Links Loved post. There aren’t any links in this post and you’re probably wondering where they are — they’re embedded between posts! These new posts have their own look. Since I may post many of them sequentially, and since many of them will not necessarily be blog design or web development-related, they won’t appear in the archives or in the RSS feed. I’ll explain how I’m accomplishing this RSS and archives omission in another post, perhaps with a tutorial or two.
