I want to apologize for my lack of posting in the last two weeks. My in-laws were involved in a serious accident while vacationing two weeks ago so my attention has been elsewhere. Everyone is doing well, relatively speaking, and life is starting to return to normal.

As for the blog, we’ve continued to see growth even though my posting schedule slowed for a little while. I’m in the middle of a series on getting connected with the design community. The first two articles were about Designers on Twitter and Design Blogs to Follow via RSS. I’ll continue the series next week with a look at article promotion for all you design bloggers out there.

As always, we’re looking to add sponsors to help support the cost of running the blog. I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of these sponsors. If you know of anyone who’d like to be promoted on the Swirl, point them towards our BuySellAds page. If you’d like to make a personal donation to show your support, you can do that via our paypal donation system. Thanks to all my sponsors, readers, and fellow bloggers.
