At the end of each month I pull together a collection of links to some of the most relevant, interesting or thought-provoking web content I’ve come across during the previous month. If you follow me on Twitter and Google+ you will see many of these items shared as soon as I find them.

From now on I am going to split these posts into two parts due to the sheer volume of excellent content that keeps emerging each month - this makes it less overwhelming for you as a reader and me as the curator!
