Since I’ve finished First Impressions, and not episodically blogging anything right now, I don’t have anything consistent I’m doing. I’m torturing Larry, but that’s not consistent. So I thought I’d combine my attempt to keep up with blogs as well as my attempt to doing something consistently through the Winter Season with these series of posts. Basically, at the end of each week, I’ll comprise a list of blog posts that stood out to me, and try to redirect other people to them. Either it’ll work or it won’t. We’ll see. Without further to do.
