Here are some of the things I've read for the day. I'll start doing these kinds of posts on a daily basis (or at least the days I log on to post) so people can check out articles that I've read.
This way, I can invest my time into putting focus on bigger articles about issues I find more important. Time is an elusive thing these days as they seem to be going by faster and faster.
In any case, enjoy!
