10×10 Weekly Digest

Welcome to Crystal’s 10×10 Weekly Digest. Inspired by a close friend to spread knowledge and to spark conversations, 10×10 is a weekly email I send out containing 10 articles for 10 friends (the number of friends being more of a guideline than a steadfast rule). My hope is that more of you will start creating your own 10x10s and we can all be a part of this wonderful information-sharing force and make the world a more educated, multi-perspective place. Happy reading!

(Note: The 10x10s I post on my blog are from the previous week’s email to maintain a certain degree of “special-ness” to those I email the digest to directly.)
