I am also looking to get listed in RecommendedUsers (Artists & Designers) so if you genuinely feel I offer: insightful, interesting, valuable links and resources then I would utterly appreciate a recommendation. But please; only if you genuinely like or find useful my various posts and updates. Thank you.
Having read Smashing Magazine for a few years now, always wondering what it takes to get on that 'contributors list', well here I finally am. I just want to suck up the excitement of my first post on Smashing, because I am rather chuffed.
I tried to make it a discussion piece, so please feel free to leave a comment, I am trying to reply to as many as possible. Frankly, surprised at how many comments thus left. On the first day, I made it my mission to reply to all the 20 or so comments, which I did. But the next day, there were over 60, so not sure what people's expectations are on replies from the post author.
I shall be 'hopefully' contributing more to Smashing Magazine in the near future, now I have a feel for what motivates people to want to read and participate
