    You guys started in sep 2008 and I was informed by a friend Lawrence who was the first guy to comment on your first post. From then I have been visiting your blog everyday. I loved the logo change on your blog and now the site looks perfect.

    The kind of writeup I find here I don’t find it anywhere else. For quality content you get 10/10 for every post.

    The advertisements on your blog look super cool and your site looks more colorful because of it. And once I my lil nephew was on my lap when I was reading your blog and he happened to see the twitter bird on top of your blog. From then he keeps asking me to show the bird on the computer. He just loves it.

    Now that Im back from my vacation I checked out your blog first and I can keep going on telling about your blog. Very well managed and yeah a few suggestions.

    Get a Job Board

  172. You get your cup of java, kick your chrome browser on, check instantshift and then go on with reading your mail. That’s how you start your morning!

  173. Well I’ve been subscribed to your e-mail feeds for quite a while now, must have been well over a year.

    As an avid reader, I’ve found articles like the one on the various factors influencing website design (2 or 3 months ago) to be pretty helpful. There’s only so much you can learn from reading some textbook on HTML design or some book on webpage design. Such articles teach you the ins and outs of practical design in the real world and help you identify small conceptual flaws in your page that can otherwise ruin it.

    And with regard to the site itself, I find the design of iShift very pleasing :) Looking forward to more great articles from you guys this year.

    Happy New Year!

  174. I learned a lot from InstantShift, all the best in 2011 :)

  367. I am from Malaysia and that’s a country not many people in the world has even heard of–but coconut shell dance, tree swinging, Cheetah calling, and Jane smoldering aside–I love how recognizes one of the most important and toughest task a human can’t escape from doing: decision.

    This site geeklighted me since the first time–maybe due to some mysterious, unexplainable planetary misalignment in the milky way, which caused physics equations going wild and physicists ejaculating which what led me here–I discovered instantshift.

    “Decisions made easier” should be instantshift’s unofficial motto.

    Going through the extensive mother of galleries of showcases, lists, and collections that’s organized according to topics and subjects, other than keeping up to date with new development, and keep track of things, certainly have been a great help in s̶p̶o̶i̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ assisting a user with choices to base an informed decisions from, through the comparisons and well-curated lists.

    It helps slash a significant amount of time and chores a user have to spend on searching, sorting, and sifting through massive, and fragmented sections of countless websites and blogs, in search of information, tools, applications, themes, templates, services and etc around the world wide web – by making it available in a collective, cohesive order, at one spot.

    If there is a timely relevant solution to help with decisions and resolve, by easing the clutters of those whose in the fast track, technological age of modern living, where time itself is a great commodity to leverage–given that one can save it in the first place, is definitely one of that solutions For The Win.

  368. iShift is one of my go to blogs whenever I needed inspiration, ideas and tips. Keep it up, guys! :)
