Wishing You a Healthy and Prosperous 2013

My top Web design tools and innovations from year 2012.
2012 has certainly been an eventful year. Some good, some bad, and some outright ugly. Web design technology, internet marketing and social media have continued to evolve at a rapid pace.

Staying current with the changing tide of SEO has been challenging. Reflecting back, I definitely saw my daily SEO routine change. I spent much more time doing "research". Keeping up on keeping up...my kids always tease me about that one.

I am thankful for the generosity of the web development community, especially the "knowledge sharers". Reading their tech blogs and forums sure made my life easier when racing to meet another crazy deadline. For those of you out there...thanks for caring and sharing!

My 2012 list of most useful web technologies & innovations

OK, yes...a lot of Google mentions. And I know some of these technologies were around in 2011. But I have leaned on them a bit more than in previous years.
  1. DotNetNuke in the cloud (thanks PowerDNN)
  2. Adobe Fireworks (my "go-to" design app)
  3. Microsoft Expression Web (sorry Dreamweaver)
  4. Evolution of Google+ (loving the new Communities)
  5. Android's Jellybean OS
  6. jQuery libraries
  7. Launch of DNN 7
  8. Improved Webmaster Tools for Google / Bing
  9. Google Sites (open up guest commenting please?)
  10. Matt Cutts webmaster videos on YouTube
Honorable mentions...Google Drive, Wordpress, Blogger & HootSuite.
 

...What's on your list?
 

I'm looking to forward to the new year. So here's to a healthy and prosperous 2013 for all! God Bless!
