February was a month of a lot of aches and pains. I found mfy solace and R&R in some of these places.
I’ve made a small change this time, by also adding the Twitter ids, where available of the writers or the sites. This is what you’ll see linked to the ‘via XYZ’ section while the titles of the articles are linked to the sites themselves. Yes, I’m also very glad I managed to make one more edition of Ideamarked and didn’t fall off my new year resolution in month 2 itself. Hope, hope and we trudge on ahead. Enjoy!
