Blog Usability

Hey Everyone,

The other day I came across a blog (through the wonderful world of twitter) on the 10 Sins of Blog Usability.  Since our new website is a blog and usability is what we do, I thought it was appropriate to pass on this info.

This is my first attempt at blogging by the way 😀 … so I don’t know first hand if their list hits the mark. Though, a few of their “sins” are definitely known UI principles.
