Doing a Little Writing for the New ScriptJunkie

Script Junkie

In case you missed my shameless self promotion on Twitter (and Buzz and Reader and Facebook), I've been doing a little writing for a new MSDN site, ScriptJunkie.

ScriptJunkie is a new site aimed at client-side developers and focuses on cross-browser information and resources. Yes. Cross-browser. From Microsoft.

So far, two four of my articles are live and ready for your enjoyment:

Coming soon, I'll be writing about one of my favorite topics, semantic markup, as well as jQuery (from a designer's perspective). And I expect to tackle other front-end topics over the rest of this year.

Lots of Good Info

ScriptJunkie is working with several extremely talented developers to provide solutions-based articles, videos and code samples that demonstrate today's best web application development techniques.

Resources range from advanced JavaScript, to site optimization, to standards-based techniques. And, despite what you may think about Microsoft, you aren't going to find anything that is pushing MS technologies over anything else. It really feels like a very balanced resource. I wouldn't lie to you.

But, go ahead. See for yourself.

Personal Note

I'm thrilled to be writing stuff of substance again. It seems like ever since I finished the book, I've been filling this blog with event recaps and self promotion … which is exactly what I've been doing. It is nice to be focused once again on sharing knowledge and ideas, not just telling you what my next presentation is.

Also, it has been awesome to have a chance to write about something other than microformats. Don't get me wrong. I still love microformats. I will continue to write about them. It is just nice to have a reason (and a deadline) to write about the other web topics I'm passionate about: CSS, accessibility, semantics, etc.

And don't worry. I will, of course, continue to write on this blog … just, hopefully, more substantive writing. In fact, the ScriptJunkie articles have already inspired some ideas for new topics and even a new blog series.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
