(Work in Progress!)  For years this site had the typical blogroll-type links in the sidebar, but I’ve grown tired of how cluttered it seems.  I’ve decided that it would be far more useful to you if I created a page of links presented in a more organized fashion.  Well, perhaps not organized, but I like having the space to tell you about sites I choose to link to, rather than just posting a list.
