What I read

September 10, 2013 by Ville Raivio

The smart reader must have already seen Keikari’s list of online friends on the right side of the site. For casual clickers I am sharing all of them them and more again. The Internet provides an endless heap of style sites, but I find myself returning to around a dozen or so for inspiration and quality content. Casual glances I have in many directions, but time is limited and I try to keep out of the never-ending re-posting that undulates on Tumblr.

    …it seems that my favourite site has indeed returned from virtual Calais. Perhaps penniless and insane, but free from all stages of nastiness — I hope. I will share the news with Keikari’s readers within a week. Welcome back.
