FreelanceSwitch has written yet another great article (this is one of my favorite sites that I visit daily). Their latest piece is about the importance sharpening your skills in your industry. It wouldn’t be complete without a big list of suggestions to help you achieve this.
In my own case, look how long it’s taken for me to finally learn tableless XHTML / CSS! If I had kept on top of my game, I would have been right up there with everyone else – and not as far behind as I am.
One of my recent goals was to learn at least one new web technique each month… This article recommends spending at least 30 minutes a day, or one hour a week, etc. learning about your profession. Definitely something I should tackle… after all, web design is what I do!
Anyway, it’s a great read with lots of good suggestions.
