After some requests, I have decided to bring back the Weekly Mash Up. The weekly Mashup is where I show a little link love for some of my favorite articles that I have read over the last few week(s). Most of the articles that I share are from sites I have been reading and commenting on for the last couple of years. Some articles are found through several of my social media streams and social bookmarking sites like Blog Engage. But I also find articles from my readers. So if you are regular visitor, start commenting and use the commentluv feature in the comment area to share your latest articles with the community. If your articles catch my eye, then your article might just make it into one of the Mash Ups.
If you are interested in the format of Evolutionary Design’s Weekly Mash Up, we use CurationSoft to find the articles, to copy the name, link location, and the first few sentences of the articles. I then add quotes and italicized to the copied text. The Free version only allows you use the blog search to find articles to share. But with the premium version you can find topics from at least eight different sources. So check it out today.
