Auto Dark Mode for my Website

Recently, I have redesigned my website with Blocs 4.2 beta, so it gets the perfect score on GTMetrix and PageSpeed. During the redesign process, I have changed the theme of my website back to 'Light'. I am not completely happy with the light theme, because I like to use a dark mode on my devices. So, how do I make my website look great...

Since then, the developers of Blocs have introduced the next version of my favorite web design tool, Blocs 4. So, ...

Everything Starts After 2AM

Sleep is very important for humans, and I highly recommend having a good sleep every night. I am never able to sleep well because I can’t turn off the thinking process in my head. Even when I am tired, by the time I get to bed, I start to think about the past or the future. Dozens of ideas will overwhelm my brain every night, making it...

Blocs 4 Website with Vertical Navigation

I have built 100s of beautiful and responsive websites with the Blocs app, but only 3 or 4 of them have vertical or sidebar menus. I have also collected many 100s of websites from other Blocs designers, and I rarely see any websites with vertical navigation. The main reason for this is the fact that Blocs 2, 3, or even 4 do not nativel...

HEY World Review - Blog, Newsletter, or both?

A couple of days ago, Basecamp has introduced a new feature for its HEY Email service, which is called HEY World. This new feature allows me to post blog updates and send emails to hundreds of people right from my email inbox. It is dead simple, but it is the most revolutionary service I have seen in a long time. What it is HEY World p...
