    If any of you designers and devs near Michigan are gearing up to grow your business, I’m organizing a different kind of web conference for you on Mackinac Island from May 14-16, 2014.

    Instead of talking about design patterns and big ideas, we’re actually rolling up our sleeves and doing the work on site to get you ready for the biggest customer you can handle and making a plan to go after them. It’s a 3 day, 2 night experience on an island with no cars. Ferry boat tickets, horse carriage taxis, bike rentals and lodging included. http://www.tyrocamp.com/

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it
