“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed” – William Faulkner


Editor’s note: well, it was certainly only a matter of time before I added a links page to this website and I had a few spare moments this morning – so I decided to throw one together now.

Please be aware that none of the websites or social media accounts listed here have endorsed in any way; nor should the act of linking you to them here be considered an expressed endorsement of all the content available on those websites. This is merely a list of places and people I’ve found useful or informative that I thought my readers might also find useful and informative.If anyone would like to add this website to a similar such list on their platforms, I’m fine with that as well.

The links are sorted in no particular order except that websites are up top and social media accounts are underneath them. Wherever possible I’ve tried to note which sites might not be safe for work but I’m assuming if you’re already here on my site, you probably aren’t that worried about it.

Finally, if I’ve added you or your site to this list and you’d rather not be included (for any reason whatsoever) – please feel free to email me ( or contact me on Twitter and I’ll remove the link as soon as possible.
