  • Kevin,
    I wanted you to know how much I appreciate these “links of interest” posts. They allow me to read industry-relevant articles that, for the most part, I wouldn’t have found on my own. As I’ve read the articles, I have found much fodder for thought, topics for further study, and information that I’ve passed on to my fellow writers at work. Thank you!
