About Steel Frog and the blog

Find out more about the man behind the curtain

My name is Eric. I create awesome blogs, slick websites and write great HTML/CSS. On this blog, I share my ideas with other passionate designers, front-end developers, techies and gamers alike.

I’m currently employed as a full-time web designer. In my off-time, I build and fix things. When I can, I make sure to document my work for others to try and write articles on how to duplicate my experiences in a simple, easy to understand format.

As a gamer, you can find me on XBOX Live as Steelfrogg, on PSN as Steelfrog, on Battle.net and Steam .

About the blog

Steel Frog.com was registered on November 30th, 2006. Originally, I intended the domain to host my portfolio and little else. After I had written several Photoshop tutorials, I temporarily moved them onto this domain and over time, it evolved into a blog now running WordPress. Find a bug? Make sure it’s not already in the bug tracker, or report it to me so I can get it fixed!

You’re looking at the seventh revision of the design, with about a dozen un-released designs in between. For the curious, here are some of the previous designs. Unfortunately, I don’t have full-sized screenshots for all of them yet as I need to restore them from an archive drive somewhere in my parts closet.
