So, it’s time for Link Drop Contextd once again. B/c of the finite amount of time this week I decided to go w/ quality over quantity. There was at least ten to fifteen more sites I would have added to this list but there’s only so much time in the day to add them up. If you’re curious about what else I thought was worth saving feel free to check my delicious site. As always I’m interating on the format, let me know what works and doesn’t as that’s what the comment field is for.

stay warm,
