CSS Zen Garden Wordpress Theme Design

Blog Design Contest – Show Off Your Style

By now, millions of designers know the CSS ZenGarden and its WordPress Theme method – standardized markup, different styles applied. Working on a Zen Garden design and being accepted is a great feat and reward for the hard work.

Six Apart and its sponsors, want to say thank you to the standard compliant designing blogger so they created The Style Contest. It is a project to give the design community the opportunity to contribute to the quality of blogging tools and the user experience.

If you are familiar with web standards and “theming” you should check it out.

There are some sweet prizes and it will be very good exposure for the designers. Participants do not need to have anything more than a text editor and a browser to participate, and there are files ready for download to get you started.

Parker has already designed and submitted, and I think I will work on something too!


The Most Beautiful Blog Online

With all the work on my plate, I don’t really have the time to read many blogs – however, there is one who stands out in my mind, and I have to make an effort to go there…

He has an honesty that is so realistic, you “want” to read.

Well recognized by the best of the best in CSS, John talks of “whatever he feels like on any given day”, so be warned – you just might laugh. And the garden ain’t bad either 😉

If you have not been fortunate enough to yet stop by John Oxton’s web pad, then you should go take a look – if for nothing more than the oohs and ahhs you will produce after eyeballing his UI.

Fun and pretty.
