Okay, I’m prototyping here. Bottom line it’s finally gotten through my thick skull that assembling a weeks worth of content and putting it out there once-a-week is a LOT to consume all-at-once. So I’m going to try a new angle here. I’m not going to post every day – rather almost every day.
I will post when there is content I think is worthy of posting – also conditioned on when I come across it (sometimes I just don’t get around to it – day job you know).
Some days will be light and others heavy.
Some posts will include a summary like those found in the Featured or Briefs section and at other times there will only be links. Additionally I’ll sort the links now by categories and will post graphics within those categories as well.
Hopefully this makes the experience better for you and for me.
If you disagree, let me know.
