often, when i come across an interesting link / video / story that touches me, i copy the link to blog about it a later point. yet by then, there's already another interesting link that is waiting...to keep the links from vanishing unblogged, i now had the brainwave to just go ahead and create an ongoing monthly link list, with new links added at the top when i come across them. here are the first:
- 12 of the Most Beautiful Literary Magazines Online: "We’d like to present a few literary online magazines that have particularly nice design.
