Useful tools for website developers
I've had my website in some form for about three years now; I created my original site using Weebly as my knowledge of HTML was (and still is) fairly limited, and I was more interested in quick functionality than building everything from scratch.
As I've gone along, I've found loads of places with useful information or gizmos for amateur website designers and developers, so thought I'd share a few in this post. These are just the ones I use and find helpful - there are plenty of others out there! I'm going to keep this list open and continue to add to it as I find (or remember) more useful stuff.
