I’m still trying to figure the best way to share links with this blog. Josh Ginter’s The Newsprint has a separate “Fresh Links” section dedicated to this. kottke.org has links mixed in with other posts. Noah Jacobus has his “Enjoyment Roundup” series, first started on Twitter, where he posts a regular format “whenever [he has] experienced enough different things across various media that pique [his] interest.”
Do I include these links in the main RSS feed, or an optional second feed?
Here is my first attempt at a solution: a collection of links from the past month. A few to read, a few to listen to, and a few to watch. Pick and choose whichever links sound interesting. We’ll find out on 28 February if this sticks.
