With the year coming to a close in no more than a few days something else is finding its – temporary? Final? – end, too: The Good good links. As hinted at for a while I’ve decided to lay off this blog series. Whether for a few weeks, months or for good I can’t and don’t want to predict at this point. Originally, I was going to share a few more words on the why but things got wordy too fast – talk about some serious self-reflection – and I decided to postpone this for another day.
Before the link lovin’ goes, though, here’s another round-up of [some of the many] posts I wouldn’t want you to miss. Ironically, I found way too many for one post just the week I decided to lay this series to rest … who knows what that’s mean to say …?!
