Happy Birthday ArtAtm – One Year of Learning

We started ArtAtm.com with the intention to learn something different, to learn wordpress. We never had writing a “Blog” in our minds. We just thought of ArtAtm a platform to learn wordpress. But today, we are learning not just the wordpress but the whole of web.

The first ‘real’ article wirtten was 50 Free Slideshow, Gallery And Lightboxes Scripts which was actually not our own written article but just a redirect to a article on Noupe. Yes, this is how we started off with. The first “own” wirtten article was 10 Best CSS Websites — Part 1. The last article that we have written for the year is a Giveaway: $25 Credits on Next Day Flyers.

What a year it has been, absolutely fantastic, amazing, exhausting, busy, knowledgeful !!!!
