Happy New Year! An exciting year for layout fans as we should be seeing Grid Layout in browsers very very soon. More on that in one of my links this week. I hope that you are all looking forward to the year ahead, and if you are just back from holidays today that the email inbox is not too terrifying.
Travel starts for me next week, not for a conference but for the CSS Working Group meeting in Seattle. Looking forward to a few days of focus on CSS.

Personal blogs are an excellent place to start playing with new CSS features, I expect we'll start to see more experimentation as grid lands in browsers. Great to see use of feature queries too.
We believe that content management systems should manage content really really well, and leave the design and front-end code to you. That's why when you use Perch or Perch Runway you have full control of everything the CMS outputs.
With Perch and Perch Runway 3 now announced and shipping soon, with a redesigned UI and features such as a headless CMS mode, this is the perfect time to Grab a Perch.
