I hope these links bring some minor distractions to your day:
ooh.directory is a collection of 900+ blogs. From the creator: "For years I’ve seen people moan that “nobody blogs any more”, all while my feed reader was overflowing with new blogposts I never had time to read. I want to demonstrate that there are lots and lots of people blogging, about all kinds of subjects!"
I'll also take this opportunity to plug 1feed, my favorite feed reader. It's pretty chill as feed readers go. Note: you can also subscribe to this newsletter via RSS if you want.
It's that time of year for gift guides: Ugmonk's shop small list, Rands' 10 things I love and why, and Robin Sloan's gift guide.
It's also that time of year for Tom Whitwell's annual 52 things I learned post.
Also, The Sounds of Christmas, a playlist. Lots of new (to me) holiday/winter tunes.
Two shallow rabbit holes I travelled this week:
Three-legged crows as a result of Japan's national football team logo.
Mysterious booms called Seneca Guns.
It's getting cold and dark here. If winter is coming to your neck of the woods I hope it comes peacefully, bearing warm drinks, and some time to relax.
