Twitter Link Roundup #276 – Patriotic Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | July 3rd, 2015

Happy 4th of July! We love the patriotism, the food, the sun, and the gathering with friends and family. We also like the fireworks. What better to celebrate this roundup then fireworks fails? Well, actually nothing is better. Have a look at the knuckleheads and the insanity they wrought with Darwin-was-right idiocy.

So, Happy Birthday, America, because once again, it’s time for our weekly Roundup! Pyrotechnics are fun, but not as much fun as this week’s set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account) ! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
