Announcing: The Glean

So I read a pretty large amount of material daily. Too much, probably. But it’s been an integral part of my attempt to expand how I see things, to understand other perspectives and intentionally challenge the way I was raised to think.

I share a lot of it on Google Reader, which is nice, and a lot of fun when it starts a discussion. However, I feel as if I need to do something more with it. I’m serving as an aggregator, but only to a very limited audience. Now, do not think I am ignorant to the status of this blog; I’ve seen the traffic stats. But by placing more stories I run across on here, maybe, just maybe, a wider audience will discover it.

I follow several blogs that serve as aggregators, giving a rundown of links for the day with the authors thoughts on them. I think that’s where I’m going with this: a daily rundown of stories I ran across. A gleaning” of the noise” around the web, if you will, with the events and commentaries of the day posted every morning. Stick around and we’ll see where it goes.
