Funny how when you sit down to do a post and you think you are going to write one thing, but you end up writing another. Leisa Reichelt recently sent me a note to draw attention to Making Life Easy, a project for world usability day. Go check it out as usability is underrated and it's something we take for granted (but shouldn't).
But I really want to point out Leisa's disambiguity blog. Leisa is a wonderful writer and tells stories that draw attention to the value of her craft (User Experience Design) as well as getting you to think. I've followed her blog for a bit, but lately I've been keeping up on bloglines. And as a result, I only recently noticed that she's re-designed it. And here's why I think this is significant. For a long time, Leisa has had this disclaimer at the top of her generic looking blog template: (pretty design pending). And I always hoped that Leisa would make good on adding that "pretty" part because her content is so good—it seemed only fitting that her blog should feel differentiated.
And now it is. Leisa offers up "good blog experience" through her insights into the profession—her stories and now her unique-looking blog which is easy on both the eyes as well as the functionality. Be sure to check out posts like "There are three kinds of bloggers"
And best of all, Leisa is a practitioner. She does this stuff for a living. Go ahead and dive in (unless you are already reading it). Oh and Leisa, congrats on the sorta new design. You've got great blog brand.
