  1. Adding an image really does help and adds to the portfolio piece. #45 is my favorite because the author puts himself into the site in such a way that it would appear he is interacting with the text as the text is for the site. Great article!

  2. I don’t know about everyone else, but I like short, sweet & punchy – Heather Hill, Mum of Five – not the band
