      Hi Miriam,

      Thanks for the compliment. You’re not just saying that because two of the links were tweeted by you? :)

      Actually, it started as a way for me to organize my tweets better so that I could find links I had previously posted. Making the list public was just the natural progression. I’m glad you’re able to get something from them.

      Thanks again for checking in.
