Yes but apparently the good practice is to think Mobile first....

I do the same by the way.

good practice is needed to build both targets
imho is irrelevant which target you start with
this resembles me the seo obsessives... first do a good modular design and then we can start to talk
btw who dictates the good practice rules? the same dudes that their sites have unbelievable errors? or are impossible to understand/navigate?
lol just my cent here

I do Desktop first.

But, I have to keep in mind that whatever I include on the desktop version must eventually be "shrunk" or re-formatted to fit on a small (320 pixel, for me) device. That somewhat restricts my grandios, flashy, and very busy desktop presentations. If all that "stuff" is somehow going to scale down to a miniature phone display, then it would likely result in a page so long it would resemble a 3-foot strip of paper from a cash register!

So, by virtue of the fact that I need to think about the 4 breakpoints I design for, the desktop version begins life fairly simple so that I can easily move chunks of information around.

Just my $.02
