I’ve got a massive backlog of saved posts in my bloglines. These are things new and (really really) old, things I’ve read and loved and things I’ve meant to read. They are posts I’ve wanted to share with you and posts that have touched me deeply. But the post backlog is nearing a threshold point and if I don’t start to do a link dump soon, I’ll never dig myself out. So while all of these posts deserve some description, you’ll have to just click the link and figure out for yourselves why I’ve saved them.
I’ll be doling out the link love in small batches as time allows.
Here we go. We’ll start with the A’s.
