Thanks for The Link

Can you tell me what about it speaks to you?

Andrew Sullivan’s blog was so extraordinary to me in the early 2000’s not because he linked to so much stuff but because for every link he highlighted a quote and a thought or two of his own. He didn’t just share links. He told you why the links mattered.

I promise that if I email you a link to a story or an essay, or if I post one here, I’ll tell you why. I will excerpt the sentences that feel important to me, so that it’s not just some link but a link you got from me. Because you know me.

Links are for more than just sharing.
