Your easy guide to starting a new blog.
A blog is an easy way to get started writing on the web. Your voice is important: it deserves its own site. The more people add their unique perspectives to the web, the more valuable it becomes.
This is an intriguing idea for a content management system: write words on paper and then take a picture of the page. Artisinal retro vintage blogging.

I reckon a lot of websites have bad accessibility not because folks don’t care, but because they don’t know there’s an issue in the first place.
The headline is begging the question (I don’t think accessible websites are so hard to build), but I agree with Robin’s idea:

This is something that Hidde has been talking about recently too, looking at content management systems.

If you use the ProcessWire Content Management System, Johannes has written a handy plug-in that allows you to specify which files should be cached by a service worker.
Glenn Fleishman on the war of attrition between primes and quotation marks on the web.
A new PHP-based content management system. It uses Twig for the templating, which I like.
Mark gets to the heart of the issue with making responsive designs work with legacy Content Management Systems …or, more accurately, Web Publishing Tools. There’s a difference. A very important difference.
A great article by Karen pointing to the real problem with the mobile strategies of so many companies: they are locked in by their CMS.
I agree 100% with Mark’s thoughts on what a Content Management System should and shouldn’t attempt to do.
I think that markup is too important to be left in the hands of the people who make content management systems. They all too often don’t care enough about it, and they can never know the context that you will be using it in, and so in my opinion they shouldn’t be trying to guess.
Drew and Rachel's little CMS looks very nice indeed.
