Learning jQuery

Over the past month or so I’ve been having an affair of sorts. No, not THAT kind of affair. I’ve just been splitting my time between English Rules and my new techie blog, Learning jQuery. jQuery is a new JavaScript library that lets programming neophytes like me do cool things on web pages. It’s what has allowed me to dynamically load “noteworthy articles” and my “blogroll” in the Widescreen Bonus section of my web pages. It made my secret, Harry Potteresque, skeleton-key style switcher pretty easy to accomplish. And it helped me slick up the home page of the David LaGrand for State Senate web site with images that fade in and out and big buttons that reveal forms for ordering bumper stickers and yard signs.
