So this morning marks the shelving of my personal blog and its consolidation in to this blog. It's been something I've been thinking about for a long time, but I've finally decided to pull the trigger.
I totally think this is the right decision as I look at the blogs of those that I admire, I see their consolidated presence (though with some exceptions).
I've been collecting the links for this week's Good Stuff post for a couple days and there have been a lot really cool things I've found. Make sure to tune in to the next podcast for more cool stuff.
