I discovered last night that WordPress has decided to eliminate the handy extension that has made sharing articles here so easy for the past two months. Well, they haven’t eliminated it entirely. I can still use one particular variation that will automatically put a link to an article into a new post. But that’s it. Quoting, images, etc. I would have to handle myself.
That’s a lot more hoops than what I’ve been doing, and I’m not really that interested in jumping through them, if I’m completely honest.
As a result, I’m considering calling it a day here and just offering friends the direct link to my Pocket account, where you’ll find things I’ve been finding interesting–including a lot of stuff I’ve never posted here because I am but the one person and have only so many hours I can devote to reading everything that crosses my path that looks worthwhile. You probably won’t find commentary, but you may find a lot more good stuff. And the occasional dud.
The only catch is that you may have to have a Pocket account for that link to work. I’m not really sure, and they don’t seem to be terribly forthcoming about how following people works. If someone wants to give it a try, let me know and I’ll send you the link.
