They say that change is good [who in the world are they, though??] so we’ll take that as a given. Change here means I decided that I won’t keep up the good good links anymore.
… in their current form. Don’t worry – because you were worrying, right ;)?! – these aren’t going anywhere. Rather, I’ll no longer limit myself to publishing dates of posts featured that much. You might have noticed me adding ‘oldie but goodie’ posts in recent editions already and from now on they might very well become more frequent. That’s to honor the fact that what I’m reading day by day aren’t just posts from the week but also older ones on newly-discovered blogs that I think are worth reading. This won’t mean I’ll feature that post I know for a fact everybody and their brother have shared on their blogs, Twitter and wherever else already. I’m hoping to make room for overlooked posts that deserve a little more attention.
