2008 on Css Globe

Although this site is several years old, 2008 was the first year that CSSG started to fulfill it’s potential. At the beginning of the 2008 I started to write articles and that proved to be a good thing. Overall statistics went up significantly. At the beginning of 2008 I had 700 RSS subscribers and at the end the number was 7000+

My plan for the 2009 is to bring even more focus to the community news section. I will however be more selective when moderating submitted posts, so you might not see that many updates but the quality will rise. I also plan to include several site editors that will help me in finding the good stuff for you. Articles section will not be neglected (as it was in 2008). I plan to write at least 5 articles/tutorials per month.

Best wishes to all of you in 2009! 🙂
