Welcome to a new feature here on my blog: Hot Links – a weekly collection of the web’s best links, creative, stumbles, videos, blogs, deals, and whatever else I may come across.

Why Hot Links?

I am somewhat of an internet junkie and I am constantly finding content worthy of sharing. I used to run a similar featured call “Wicked Good Week“, but I dont think people got the humor. I also ran a similar column called “The Weekly 30″ when I was the publisher of ThirtyMag.com. This is the same idea, just with a new name (hopefully one people will understand) and no set number of cool links. I just cant get away from wanting to spread the love.

The idea is to publish Hot Links each Monday morning so you will have something to read while enjoying your morning coffee. Seems like a good match, right?

I’d love for Hot Links to become a collaborative effort amongst all of us. If you have created or found something worthy of share, please send it to me. In general I am looking for content that is informative, interesting, engaging, eye catching, or inspiring. My main audience is online, curious, business savvy, creative people. Also, if you have any thoughts, comments, or suggestions, there is a place for that below.

Ready?
