I've been using Things for years, and the new version is really great.
I was happy to! Thanks for creating it!
I just wrote this post this weekend:
Here were my top recommendations, but there's a ton of options and you may find something else you like better.
Not quite the same, but I do post detailed looks at small details under the tag "nice touch" on UXcellence occasionally: https://uxcellence.com/tag/nice+touch
I try to dive past the detail and look at why it's nice and how to put it into practice.
I'll second a suggestion for Craft. The templates are really powerful and simple at the same time. Unlike some CMSes (which were built originally as blogging engines and then repurposed for other uses), you have complete control over the structure of data in Craft. There are also different types of structured sections - from single pages to multi-tiered structures (like a knowledge base).
One of my favorite features of Craft is the Matrix field, which lets you define nested, reusable data structures: https://craftcms.com/docs/matrix-fields
I like it so much I've used it for 3 separate sites over the last year and I'm actively looking to build more sites with it. Here's a taste of what I built with it:
I highlighted a few great portfolios here: https://uxcellence.com/2016/11/17/craft-a-captivating-portfolio
I'd give another hearty huzzah for Craft. It's really easy for something simple, but still powerful if you want to build something more complex.
Only when they are complete sentences :)
I'm going to have to add some of the suggestions below to my own list, but I've compiled a library broken down by specific topics. Here's a list I made of the top UX-specific books on psychology: https://uxcellence.com/library/topic/psychology
I also compiled a list of essential UX books across a number of topics, including 4 specifically around various aspects of psychology here: https://uxcellence.com/2017/01/25/essential-ux-library
