Garrett brings up a point that I sometimes forget during this class. He brings up that many designers will focus on all the work that goes into the web space but will forget about the actual usability of the site.
There are a ton of little details that go into making a successful website and Garrett addresses many of them. While working on the blog, I often neglect to think about what the experience would be for the user. I think most of the time about what I need to do. Since I understand the inner workings of the blog, I feel that I do a lot of work to go into the blog itself and forget to think about how it would be for a user. This reading was a good reminder that web design also includes making sure it is appealing to the user. Not only does this include the buttons being functional but also aesthetically pleasing and easy to maneuver.
