Link Round-up – Reader Purge Edition

and frosted flakes

Hmm, I suppose if you’re not familiar with the RSS reader then the title may seed odd.  I only learned about the functionality of the reader a couple months ago but here I am today trying to sound like and expert.  Ha… and so it goes.

Updates for most sites – this one included – may be collected via email or a RSS feed – see the link at the top right for more details or to subscribe (give it a ride if you haven’t already, it’s free and you having nothing to loose). 

Well, suffice it to say I’ve been well behind in my reader reading… However, I’ve spent some quality time scouring articiles and here’s another sampling of my favorites.

As always I welcome your comments and questions!

I enjoyed the discussion generated by the Debt is Squalor article… I received nice feedback in the comments section as well as one phone conversation with a friend.

I also really enjoyed the Goal Setting series so the Conclusion post was quite an event for me.  I’ve received a great deal of discussion and postive feedback all of which I find personally satisfying… thanks to those who have contributed to the success of this series… I hope this becones a cornerstone series for this young site.

Question for the readers…. when I select a picture to accompany an article, I try to choose an image that metaphorically ties into the story or idea I’m presenting.  Some clearly are better than others… but one of my favorites is the image – or type of image – I’ve been using for my Round-up editions.

What I don’t know is how that metaphor is playing… is it clear, dumb, or too obscure in which case this group of pics looks stupid.  Let me know… do you “get it” and what do you think?  I’m just curious.

  1. Thanks for the mention! Personally, I enjoy photos that require some additional thinking to accompany the article, though, I’m not sure what Tigre Toño has to do with today’s post…but I enjoy the colors :)

    I like to put thought provoking pictures on my site as well, sometimes they are deeper than usual, but I think for the most part they accompany the post well. It’s your site, do what makes you happy! :)’s last blog post..Links to Make You Think: Swine Flu Edition
