I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes.

Maps Of The World has lots of free printable…maps. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Learning & Teaching Geography.
Dictionary.com has a great Quotes feature where you can search for quotations. What makes it stand-out from so many other quotation pages on the Web is that it provides detailed attribution for each one. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Find Quotations On The Web.
