Hey everybody, Legit Tutorials Has been open a little over a month now, and I thought it would be cool to have have a “best of” monthly series. So Here’s Month one.
About The Month
Legit Tutorials had an amazing first month, and it’s all thanks to you guys, the visitors. When Legit Tutorials launched, on November 22, it had a buggy design, and sloppy tutorials. By the end of the month, legit tutorials was completely redesigned, cleaned up, and growing faster than I ever thought.
Best Tutorials of Month 1
These tutorials are a mix of my personal favorites, and the most popular, tutorials of the month. They are in no particular order.
Dark Blog Theme
Before I wrote this tutorial, I first designed it for fun. I realized it looked nice, afterwards, and decided to write a tutorial on it. To this day (December 27, 2010), Dark Blog Theme is still the highest viewed tutorial on the whole site. View “Dark Blog Theme” Now.
Designing a Graffiti Logo
This one was my personal favorite, and a very popular tutorial, this month. I’ve always been a fan of graffiti. I love going to venice beach, or other parts of Los Angeles, and seeing all the graffiti, while visiting. That’s what inspired me to write this tutorial. View “Designing a Graffiti Logo” now.
Setting Up/Using 960gs in Photoshop
Although this tutorial is very basic tutorial, I choose it because it’s very well written. Not only that, but it also brings in organic search engine hits! I got tired of explaining 960gs over, and over, so I decided to write a separate tutorial that I could refer people to. View “Setting Up/Using 960gs In Photoshop” Now.
Best Downloads of Month 1
We only had two non-source file downloads, but here they are anyway.
LegitTutorials 1 Full WordPress Skin
Once Legit Tutorials was redesigned, I decided to release the original skin for free. LT1 is a completly unique skin, easy to use, and widget ready! Download “Legit Tutorials 1 Full WordPress Skin” Now.
Dark Blog Template
Immediately after writing the tutorial on how to design it, I coded and released it. I thought it was cool to have a tutorial, and a download, for the same theme!Download “Dark Blog Template Download” Now.
Well thats it, this month has been great, and its been amazing watching legit tutorials grow. I cant wait to see what next month holds. Remember to follow/like us too!
