Another Great Year of Nash

The end of 2012 is near, thus I wanted to thank you for visiting this blog of mine…

It means a lot to me that you visit the site, use our products and services, and give us a great feedback. I hope it was a good year for you to discover our products and services, and make awesome site or sites. Helping you make great sites and making your job easier is what this site is all about, and I wanted to thank you for joining us and being part of this community. It really means a lot. Thanks!

We have some HUGE things planned for next year. More video tutorials (duh!), hundreds of new features, tools, toggles, options, skins in the works, huge updates for our current products, as well as the re-design of Nashelp/Nashop to accommodate the plethora of useful tools from Nash specifically designed to help you even further with your site security, design and overall operation, and of course, all the other fun stuff like short movies, wallpapers, and finally some music. Here is to another great year! Keep learning and making sites!
