Every day, I stumble on great (or stupid) web articles and bookmark them for future reference. Only recently did it occur to me that I could just present these once in a while as a collection for readers. Better late than never, I guess.
The phrase fashion mags use is “carefully curated.” But “curated” makes me think of mothballs and stuffy museum docents, so let’s just say these are “put together with love.” Or curiosity. Or disgust. Or OMGLOLWTFBBQBACON.
About the title: I think “linky goodness” is originally from Dooce, or maybe Cute Overload, or maybe Going Jesus—I can’t remember. But yeah, I need a different (better) title. Should there be a zany photo for each links post? Still mulling that one over.
