I've only tried out this new feature in CodeKit last night, but it works much better than Emmet LiveStyle.
Auto-enabling and a large collection of fonts (that gets less organized as I switch font managers or computers) are important to me, network sync isn't. I didn't think of trying Font Book, thanks for the recommendation.
I use Bootstrap or Pure for smaller things..
It's easier to draw something in pencil then trace it in vector. with experience, some designers can draw directly in illustrator/sketch with bezier curves, some can't. It's easy to draw something that resembles a logo but it takes iteration and exploration to design a logo that truly represents a brand or idea.
Traditionally, I draw 10-15 small thumbnails on paper, pick the best ones and then draw them in a wireframe style in photoshop. It's easy enough to prototype layouts with Bootstrap but layouts aren't the only thing to create.
Moodboards. Instead of creating pixel perfect mockups, create loosely designed ideas that feature colors, typography and some elements in a composition that will save you time and show you what works & what doesn't.
3a. Design and development are separate tasks, so don't do them at the same time. Focus on each one independently in the beginning and bring them together at the end.
me too, downloading it now

Wordpress is very convenient for setting up a blog or small company website.. I still use it for other people's websites but I've been using/learning Kirby CMS. It's very simple but can do most of what people want from a website. There's not a bunch of plugins but there's pretty good information on implementing a lot of features on their website. www.getkirby.com
