Since January, 2008 I’ve been posting daily collections of links each morning Monday through Friday. I think it was a good idea at the time; traffic and RSS subscriptions both increased significantly for most of that period. However I’m no longer sure they’re worthwhile as a regular feature. I haven’t had as much time for blogging lately, my work keeps me out at night, and Twitter and various other tools have somewhat replaced blogs as means for spreading simple links.
I’ll be upgrading and redesigning the site soon and need to decide whether or not to keep a space for morning links, so for the next month or so I’m going to experiment with format. I’ll mostly be writing shorter, more frequent posts. This doesn’t preclude posts of assembled links, but I won’t be writing them every day. They may or may not show up on the sidebar (they’ll appear in RSS either way). Let me know what you think.
