Last Weeks Top 20 “Reading” Links #20

2012-01-013Every day, I link out a few blogs posts and articles that I’ve read or used from across the internet.  Here are the top twenty of the items that I linked out last week.  Usually, I do a top 10, but there were just too many good links that I wanted to re-share more this week.  The links are often from things that I’ve read in the evenings, and then share throughout the afternoon with the “Reading” title.  Let me know if you find these useful or interesting.
