Thanks to Google+, I’ve returned to reading articles. For the last few years I have spent too much time staring at the screen waiting for responses.

(My subscriptions were rolled-across from my old delicious.com bookmark directory a few years ago, and promptly forgotten about. Now that I have found them, I have caught the reading-bug again.) I don’t always leave comments on articles, I prefer to do a short articles upon my blog. This gives me more room to expand on my thoughts.

Here it is in the fridge:
