Welcome to the first installment of The Month. What’s The Month, you ask. It’s a round-table discussion (read: GChat) in which the other Well Spent writers and I talk about our most favorite and least favorite things that happened in the last 30 days (basically, we all got tired of looking for links every week for the link round-ups – not to mention that Valet, Get Kempt and Chris Black are better at links than we’ll ever be – so now we’re doing this instead). Feel free to add to the discussion with your most and least favorite things in the comments.
