I'm curious as to how you all practice to get better at web design. For me, I was required to take a web design class at my (high) school last year, and the teacher let me run a self-taught class. What I would do is, in the one and a half hour period, spend the first half hour reading design blogs like webdesign.tutsplus, then spend the remaining hour creating the design. I rarely finished, but doing this helped me a ton and improved my design considerably. I've started doing this again whenever I manage to get some free time.

So, what's your story? What do you do to get better at/practice designing?
