Every day, I share on Twitter and LinkedIn a list of curated articles I read, resources and tools about UX Design, User Research, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, some process, some inspiration, etc. This is an archive of everything I shared this week.
#Now – what I’m up to
This Friday, I recorded a “Spooky Halloween SEO horror stories” podcast with Myriam and Jack where I tell the listeners all about the shady SEO people trying to sneak into this blog. It will be published on October 31, stay tuned! I also finished my Steve Seagull illustration, and decided to order transparent stickers! I also prepared a FAQ on my site, to answer some questions I got a lot. Take a look if you are curious. Or send me a fun question to add to the last part.

I know people do that to save energy on their site, but sites like this one, using some kind of low def pixelated images are a nightmare for me. When I scroll, all the points on the images move and it triggers the motion sickness. I’m not trying to be mean or anything, just pointed out that sometimes, you might not foresee that some things you put in place might damage the experience of some people.
