So you may know that I deleted the content of my blog and then wasn’t able to import the XML file properly so I was going to start from scratch. But then my blog pretty much languished for a summer. And now I’m shamed by my empty blog, so I thought I would manually add the previous posts. I read them and decided that the one for my internship project was really the only one that needed to be replicated. However, I did some post some awesome links posts/digital curation called Linkylous. This post is the manual recreation of those posts with extra curation (because some of those links were really ‘in the moment’ type links).
