I’ve always been interested in reading all kinds of inspirational articles, blog posts and just fun things on the Internet, and most of the time I just tweet about it. But now, both for my sake and yours, I will write a weekly blog post listing the links for the latest week.
With especially Twitter, if you are lucky you can get a fleeting glimpse of a link and then it’s gone; also, the options of finding a link somewhere there is very small. Therefore I wanted to post it here to have as a reference, indexable by Google and also backed up in my database and on Amazon S3 so there’s likely risk of me losing it/not finding it again.
It also means that whenever you are interested in checking out just my links, you can go to the Robert’s read category and find what you want instantaneously.
So, without further ado, here’s Robert’s read for August 17th 2011:
