    Some really great sites on this list, including some new blogs that I hadn’t seen before.

    I also have to agree that the Envato sites (PSD/NET/VectorTuts) are a really great resource, and can’t forget about SpoonGraphics, Web Designer Wall, oh and Freelance Folder is another great one for us freelance designers.

    Henry,

    Thanks for including me up there! I’m glad someone’s seeing where I’m going with Six Revisions – I do write development articles, but not overly complex stuff. My goal is for designers to pick up a few things about development, and developers pick up a few things about design. I’m a developer/designer, which is becoming more and more uncommon these days.
