A few weeks ago I joined the RPG Blog Alliance (with both KJD-IMC.org and EchelonD20.org) and have been reading a huge number of really interesting articles.
Yes, this has reduced my productivity by eating time I could be spending on my own writing.
However, it has also provided me with a large amount of additional grist for my work, so overall I think it is time well-spent. As I identify the blogs I really want to follow, as opposed to drop in from time to time to read interesting-looking articles, I’ll be able to prime calibre to poll their feeds each morning so I can read them on the bus on my way to work.
In order to share the bits I find interesting with others (and make it easier for me to find them later myself) I am starting a series of ‘Links of the Week’ posts highlighting the bits I found especially worth reading and holding onto.
