Hello, there,It’s summer holiday time in the northern hemisphere, and for the first time in a couple of years, I've actually been on holiday. We've been camping in a coastal valley with no WiFi and the merest sniff of 3G connection (if you climb part the wa...

Good Lord, how did it get to be Thursday already? Somebody must have stolen a day somewhere along the line…Tikki, links on!(And if you understand that reference, you're probably also the parent of a primary school age child.)

I'm off to the (COVID-secure) dentist in a few moments, but you? You're going to procrastinate over those morning tasks by reading or listening to what's below, aren't you…? 😉


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #81

Hello, there,Another missive from my rather sporadic use of Revue, in part triggered by the news that Twitter may add a single click subscribe option to Revue newsletters in the near future, which I wrote about over on OM&HB. Here's what's caught my att...


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #80

Welcome to my other Twitter account. Given that Revue, which I use to create this newsletter, is now a Twitter property, I suspect that a lot of moribund newsletters (like this one) might suddenly lurch into renewed life. We'll see. It'll also be interestin...

I doubt anyone noticed - but this is the missing issue of ERT.I genuinely can't remember why this issue ended up being skipped. But hey, let's enjoy those nicely-aged links.A good link is like a good whisky. It gets better with age, and should be enjoyed in...

Hello, there,Another random newsletter for you long-suffering subscribers. I've just finished running a new newsletter course, and it's rebirthed my enthusiasm for the medium. And so, literally the moment the course finished, I threw open my browser and got...


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #78

Hello. I'm back. The last few months have been hard. Let us never discuss them again.We're still going to stay pretty much COVID-19 free here. Where we do touch on it, it'll be thinking forwards, not about the current moment.We all need to stop doomscrolli...


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #76

Happy May Day, everyone. Links ahoy!Just a reminder. This is my “interesting reading” newsletter - three stories, none of them about THAT virus.All the journalism/engagement stuff has moved.


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #75

I'm back.Sorry for the silence for a week. It turns out that I was in emotional denial about how much the world has and will change, even if I acknowledged it intellectually. Some bad news about a couple of bits of work triggered a small emotional collapse ...

Sorry for missing the last few days. Sometimes self-care comes first.Journalists: if you signed up here for journalism content, you’re in the wrong place. Try here instead.This is three great reads a day - and none of them will be about Covid-19.

Week ♾ in the house, and we still need interring things to read.


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #72

Well, that was a weird one. More feedback than on any newsletter I've done, ever. Plus three upvotes, and one downvote. To those I delighted - thank you. To the person I disappointed - I shall try to do better.I'm losing readers slightly faster than I'm gai...

Engaged Reading Time - Issue #67

Well, that was harder than I was expecting.I tried to find good reading that was completely free of references to you-know-what, but struggled. In the end, I gave up yesterday, and have returned to it today. (It trigged some other though processes, which yo...


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #66

All change.Like many people, I've been hit badly by the changes in life through the response to the current crisis. While my family and I all have our health, thankfully, that doesn't mean we have escaped consequences of the lockdown.I've been hit financial...


Engaged Reading Time - Issue #64

Welcome back to my (theoretically) weekly digest of interesting reads from around the internet.This week I have finally and formally closed down the paid part of this newsletter. From now on, it's just a free digest of weekly reads, and that's all. It's a r...
