Better Ways to Consume RSS

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

From WebWorkerDaily

In my recent post about using Harvest to track my time, I discovered that I was spending too much of my time consuming information. As a result, I’ve been working on ways to further increase my efficiency, starting with some Twitter efficiency improvements, and I thought that a post about becoming more efficient at consuming blogs and other news content via RSS would be a good next step.

The Use of Color in Web Design

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Color psychology is a phrase used to describe the effect that color  has on human behavior. The psychology of color is certainly not a new concept. In fact, it has been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Colors tend to carry non-verbal and subliminal messages, and the color spectrum evokes different emotions and physiological responses in people. The reactions people have to specific colors may be influenced by many factors, including their culture, location, gender, or even their age.

Beginning to Style Your RSS Feed

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Given the wide range of exposure surrounding RSS, I think it is really important to handle your feed in a way that will be usable by as many people as possible.
