The first month of Things I Saw This Week, the magazine, and onto Year 1.

Four weeks ago I decided to follow in Om Malik and Heather Armstrong’s shoes and create a digest of some of the more interesting things I saw throughout the week. After four consecutive weeks of creating these posts, and really having a great time putting them together, I plan to complete as least 52 of these posts.

I collate these lists based on what I see on Twitter, what I come across in my feed subscriptions, and what I read by just generally bouncing around the web. But how I save these links isn’t as enjoyable to me as having them to look back at later. I’m starting to see trends, and starting to notice what people are most interested in (based on click-throughs), and I think I am already getting better at describing my feelings for why I’m linking to each link.

Here are the first four weeks: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4.  I urge you to take a look through each week.

I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of this year goes and looking back at all of them to see what I can learn. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Update September 2016: I never made it to 52! But I’m going to try again. I’ve removed links to the Flipboard magazine as I won’t be maintaining that. Please look at the what-i-saw tag instead.
