blog in review 2018

We’re a few days out from the end of 2018, and what a ride it’s been. 🚀

For us on Shopify’s Web Design and Development Blog, it’s been a year of big launches and announcements—from the excitement at Unite, to the new Shopify App Store, to our ongoing What’s New at Shopify series and our brand new Developer Digest, we’ve been covering all the big news impacting our Shopify Partners around the world.

But beyond the big launches, one of the best parts about working on this blog is seeing what topics interest you most—what articles caught your attention this year, and which ones resonated as you build your businesses as designers, developers, marketers, and ecommerce professionals. This year, we saw a variety of posts catch your eye—from tools that help you work smarter, to technical tutorials, and new trends in design, you showed us what matters most to you.

So here they are, in no particular order—the top 10 posts of 2018 on Shopify’s Web Design and Development Blog. Thank you for a great year, and onwards to 2019.
