What bloggers, forms, tweeters, etc can we use to try and help promote this site?

    For the sake of ease of use, could we collect all the links into 1 post. We can all do our bit then, and eliminate dupes.

  • @Daniel well, you could have made the big list by yourself and mark it as a community wiki answer, but I've now made it for you :-) May 20 '11 at 12:06
  • I was on a tight schedule ;) Cheers :) - Upvoted!

  • We can post lists all day but the follow through is what counts.

@Daniel Hanly:

(For even further convenience, please try to keep the list in alphabetical order.)

Some popular design blogs have a "Community News" section where people can submit links of interest:

The potential value of this site needs to be sold to designers who are very active in the "design" community and have a following. If we could get people like Marlaky, Zeldman, Grace Smith, etc to stop by and give a few answers it would go a long way.

WordPress.StackExchange really started getting noticed when some of the core contributors and Automattic employees started contributing.

Getting a mention on Smashing Magazine could blow this site up overnight. The beta users should be actively promoting it all the time.

Another idea is to take answers you spent a lot of time on and turn them into blog posts if you have a blog.

These would be good places, I think. They are also good resources.

CreativePro.com

InDesignSecrets.com

GraphicDesignForum.com

There are also assorted listservs like InDesign-Talk (now indesign-talk@googlegroups.com) and WebWeavers (also now on Google Groups: webweavers@googlgroups.com).
