Welcome to the very first issue of the series “Little Bits”. Each issue of the series will contain two parts, a brief intro, and then no more than 10 unique or interesting bits (links)) of the Internet I find worthy to share. The format is intended to be short and to the point.
At first this will be a work in progress as I figured this out. As it stands right now, I’m not even sure how often an issue should come out. I’m open to hearing your feedback. Do I have too many links or not enough? Should I be adding something? What are your thoughts on the bits shared? Care to share a bit with me? Either way feel free to contact me.
