WYW // Worth Your While: Russell Westbrook, what3words, Rebecca Solnit

Before launching this blog, I did some analysis of the blogs I regularly visit. There are only five or six. Though I'm always on the lookout for new blogs to follow, I find myself returning to the same few over and over.

One of the ways these blogs garner my loyalty is by linking to quality content. When I don't have a particular destination in mind, the internet can feel awfully vast and difficult to navigate. So it's wonderful when someone has already done the work of finding quality content - it means I've got that much more time to sit back and enjoy the writing/visual design/apps/photography!

The word curate gets thrown about willy-nilly these days, but I find a lot of value in these groups of well-contextualized, well-chosen links. In the spirit of sharing and - dare I say it - curating, I'll be posting links to my favorite web-based content every other week. I found these links to be worth my while - I hope they'll prove worth your while, too

But it’s not about the joy, it’s about the work, and there has to be some kind of joy in the work, some kind from among the many kinds, including the joy of hard truths told honestly.

And on the subject of writing, stay tuned - I'm currently working on a post about our heroes, and what we can expect of them, inspired by seeing Ruth Bader Ginsburg in conversation at Stanford. Until then, let me know what you think of the links!
