#QSTOP10 — June 11, 2021

Contrary to the post title of this week’s Monday Links round-up, it didn’t rain all week, and we found ourselves in a bit of an office content lull. It happens ;) be back to normal shortly.

Also, this got filed before it dropped, but we’re big fans of Mr. Zentgraf’s skating, and you should go watch his new part on the Pocket site.

Enjoy the #perfectskateweather this weekend ♥

Shout out to everyone putting in the hours on fine-tuning web edits in the social media era ♥
