A Feed You Should Read #7 – A Continuous Learner’s Weblog, Links

Links, links, links. Links here, links there, links everywhere. From Email, tweets, IM’s, text messages, TV, snail mail, friends, family, coworkers, links from all sides. Sometimes it feels we’re drowning in links.

Yet there are those who are our link lifeguards, providing life preservers, acting as our silent yet thoughtful guides, day in and out.

Today’s feed is from one such person, Steve Pietrek’s and his A Continuous Learner’s Weblog

A Continuous Learner’s WeblogLinks



A Continuous Learner’s Weblog has been going concern for five years now, making it one of the few, the proud, a Five Year survivor. As we all know, blogs come and go, with few passing the test of time. And that’s okay. Blogs have their own lifespan, some exploding into light, shining bright but burning out quickly. While others, maybe not as powerful or “shiny,” have an inner foundational strength that provides for a fuller and more stable existence  [insert star analogy here, or tortoise and hare, or… lol ;]

Anyway, posts are generally not daily, but that’s okay. Heck, that’s the power of feed subscription (I love async attention focusing and direction that feed subscriptions provide… subscribe and forget and you only need to focus when there’s something to actually focus ON! I love that.). And a link blog does not have to be daily to be informational, in some cases it’s even better that it’s not. By not being daily, it acts as a second look at items you might have missed in a more frequently updated blog.

Topics covered are generally in the Microsoft dev/tech space, with general trend toward web dev.

Why do I like this feed and think you might also?

What draws me to this feed is its simplicity. No fuss, no muss, no ad’s, no flowery text (or lame attempts at it like I do ;), simple, short, streamlined and fast.

In the end I think for me it’s the speed in which I can review it. The straight forward layout, streamlined categorization and limited content makes it very fast and easy to scan and read.
