send in syedbar linkz plz – ur blog, useful stuf, watevs
This is a call for your submissions to the vast collection of links on the Wesleying sidebar (just above the tag cloud at the bottom). That includes:
- Your/your student group’s blog/site/thing that can be accessed on the internet
- Other people’s blogs/sites/things, as long as they have a Wes connection (like alumni and professors)
- Useful things, like the Boring but Useful/Numbers to Know categories, University links, etc.
- Relevant things (Middletown stuff, cool college blogs or whatever)
Basically, I’m doing this, except without advance warning because I suck. (As usual, feel free to tell me all about it in the comments!)
“WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!!?” you may have screamed as you read this post, your normative expectations hanging lifelessly in your arms. If that was you, there’s grief counseling after the jump. (There’s also more info on what/how to submit to us.)
Judging by the incredible volume of shoutbox comments we get on it daily, the huge treasure trove of sidebar links on the blog has been central to campus discourse for years now. Unfortunately, it’s fallen into disrepair, much like my self-esteem, and nothing’s been added to it in a while.
I decided to take the chance to destroy all that’s good in the world and go through all the sidebar links, cleaning up anything that either a) hadn’t been updated since before fall 2009, (and didn’t seem otherwise significant), or b) had a link that blew up (rest in peace, shadow wes; at least the Flickr lives on). On the flipside, though, I’ve added some new links and updated some old ones, which you should check out.
So, if you want your link added, you should give us the site name, the link itself, and a one-sentence-or-less blurb, either by email ( staff$wesleying$org ) or commenting on this post. If it’s your personal site or blog, supply your name and class year or tell us you’d like to remain anonymous. If I deleted your blog/link, sorry — feel free to send it in again by the guidelines given above.
