no sign of slowing down for Christmas yet - in fact this is a great time of year for web writing as various sites publish an article or tip a day in the lead up to Christmas. Adrian Roselli has created a list of them.
If you do see something of a Christmas slowdown it might be a good time to learn something new, such as Grid Layout. I've been adding to the festive fun by publishing a learn CSS Grid post every day over at Grid by Example. I'll be adding some brand new video tutorials over the next week.
