I used to post some of my reading material at least daily, but got out of the habit because I was using the posts to fuel the podcast. But since I’ve been bad at posting anything at all lately, I’ve decided that I should post at least every few days the articles I’m reading to keep myself up to date. I know I could use something like Instapaper to do this as well, but I’m an old-school blogger, so I’ll do it here instead.
