Many readers of this blog find it immensely frustrating. Sure, you get great content about running a successful website, but I stoically refuse to write about technical or complex design issues.

This, of course, is intentional. All along I have aimed this blog squarely at those who run websites but don’t necessarily know a lot about web design. When I do talk tech or design, I do so in a way that anybody can understand.

Of course if you are a web designer this can become frustrating. You want technical stuff and design advice. Fortunately the guys at Headscape are here to help you out with a new site called The Barn.

The Barn is a blog written by some great people at Headscape such as @cargowire, @leigh, @edmerritt, @webdesignchris and @bobscape.

Inevitably there will be some overlap with boagworld content and when that happens we will be sure to repost it here. However, if you are a web designer and interested in what we get up to at Headscape then this is the blog for you.
