Site of the week: Warhammerblogs.com

Okay, I’ll be up front. I picked this site partly because it is a client’s site. The other reason? It turned out really, really well. The whole team is proud. Warhammerblogs provides blog space to fans of the game Warhammer. I don’t play this game, but I do play some other ones and can appreciate…

Site of the week: Seshn

I skipped over some long-term WMPU based sites on my to-blog list to bring you a recent find because I liked it so much. Seshn is how a niche-based MU site should be done. The main page is tight, laid out well, focused sharply on the demographic, and – dare I say it – sick….

Site of the Week: Wildlife Direct

To kick things off, I’d like to highlight a site that has impressed me for a long time, not only in content and format, but in useage. I first saw mention of it when the owner (?) posted a short question in the support forums. Wildlife Direct is a somewhat modfied version of WPMU that…
