Several months ago we moved from a 5 post per week schedule to Monday, Wednesday, Friday here at Get Elastic, and consequently discontinued our Friday link-love-in called Bloggers Digest. A few readers expressed that they really liked the roundups, so I decided to bring it back!
Bloggers Digest will recap 10-or-so must-see posts for ecommerce enthusiasts from a variety of blog and news sources and will appear on the last posting day of each month. I also encourage you to add your own favorites in the comment section (so bookmark your faves in your feed readers). But I warn you, spam will be deleted!
