I love the joy of discovery, especially oddities and good reads on the internet.
So I’m smitten with the timely, informative, interesting stories I’ve found via This.cm. It’s a crowd-sourced site to share links. But unlike the flood of so many other sites, an account can post only once per day. I follow 38 people right now, so AT MOST, if every single one posts their one link a day (and most do not), then that’d be 38 links to skim.
Unlike Twitter, which is flooded with bons mots, trolls, personal updates, and more posted a million times a second, This.cm is just interesting links.
Unlike Facebook, where you have to wade through breaking life news, boring status updates, cute baby pictures and the latest seasonal meme pic, This.cm is just interesting links.
There are writers, editors, media publications, thinkers and regular people (including me). You can connect with Twitter to find people to follow, or look at their featured members and try some of those. It’s been one of my favorite stops to find interesting perspectives on the world, great news reporting, unusual long-form features, and much more.
Here are a few of my favorite reads from the last few weeks:
- The Hateful Life and Spiteful Death of the Man Who Was Vigo the Carpathian
- This Is a Story About Loss: On losing things, losing people, and finding God at Unclaimed Baggage Center
- Unfollow: How a prized daughter of the Westboro Baptist Church came to question its beliefs
This post is NOT sponsored by This.cm, I simply like it and want you to join me there. 🙂
