I just read that one of my favorite sources is shutting down. It was a daily newsletter that focused on web design but always had creative surprises and rarely missed a day. There’s no point in calling it out (until, or if, they relaunch) but I understand why. This work, or is it a hobby since I make no money from this, is often unnoticed. I’ve asked myself, “What’s the purpose?” many nights. The rare, beautiful moments when someone comments, sends a thank you, or shares a link does help keep me going. I did attempt to create a daily version of this for a short while–it was so painful. Enjoy this week’s links. I have no intention of stopping… yet.
