Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays. (This will be the last Friday post of September, so make sure to come back again on October 3rd for more Interesting Internet Finds.)

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there. I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.
