I often run across sites that I find interesting and would like to tell people about, but I may not have the time to write up a detailed entry. Then again, some sites do not need to be described, as they are best left for others to discover. After reading a post by Simon Willison about his 1000th Blogmark, I decided that I really needed an outlet for these links.
So, I have added a hack to my site, which will allow me the ability to quickly intersperse links in between regular posts. Matt, the creator of WordPress, provided the initial impetus, and was kind enough to provide a write up of how he implements the functionality, which he dubs ‘asides’. I decided to be a bit more to the point, and am calling them ‘Quick Links’. Why? Because I want to. A simpler explanation is also available.
