thanks for sticking with CSS Weekly for another year. I greatly appreciate your support and trust.
I hope you had great holidays, that you’ve managed to recharge your batteries and that you’re ready for the challenges New Year has prepared for you.
Starting from today, I’ll be moving the release schedule of the newsletter to Monday evening, which will work better for me, and hopefully for you too. All comments are, as always, appreciated.
Happy New Year!
