Whenever I see interesting posts or articles, I bookmark them or save them to read later. Then once a week, I spend an hour or so sitting down to go through as many as possible. I find that this process really helps me stay focused on work instead of getting sidetracked or distracted by shiny objects.
You could call it the SQUIRREL! blocker:
I’m a big fan of Facebook’s “save this link” feature, but I also pin to Pinterest, save to my bookmarks bar and even email myself links that I see when I’m on my phone.
I thought I’d start sharing some of the links that I collect each week. Enjoy!
This article grabbed my attention for a few reasons. I’m trying really hard to raise two KIND children. And the sooner they understand that every one of us is special, despite our differences, the better. It’s perfectly OK to be curious and ask questions. But there’s a fine line between curiosity and rudeness. It’s a message I wish more adults took to heart, frankly.
I’m a little sensitive to this topic because our baby Remy has a small (and I mean seriously SMALL) birthmark on her forehead. It will disappear in a year or two and is totally harmless. We’ve really not had a lot of questions about it other than a few “oh, did she bump her head?” moments, but I know that’s not always the case. I’m in a Facebook group with other hemangioma parents and the stories they share about reactions they get from people — kids and adults — are shocking. This post, “What’s Wrong With Her Face?” is a must-read and I also recommend you fall in love with Sloan, the amazingly brave and beautiful little girl who just had a large tumor removed from her face.
I’ve been side-gigging for the last few years, hustling to get work done before and after my normal work hours. After our move, I went to part-time hours at my job, and I’ve been filling in the rest with a series of side gigs, including my blogging and social media consulting business. So yeah…for me it’s more than just a fad.
And hey — hire me!
I saved this because it’s such a perfect fit for Growing Bolder but also because it’s freaking RAD. Go Iris!
44? Only 44? Seems like a pretty quiet day to me. Ah, threenagers.
Lauren is a blogging client of mine, and I LOVE her posts. She’s a personal trainer, and her workouts are accessible and fun (I’ve tried a few!) and her overall voice is just really easy to read. This is a fun post breaking down some of the most commonly used terms by we fitness freaks.
Um, my site’s tag line is “Healthy Living in a Hectic World.” I need all the tips I can get.
Christine, the amazing lady behind The Cookful, is another client of mine and I’m SO in love with her new site. She and her team take deep dives into food topics and not only share recipes but techniques and all sorts of fun stuff. Seriously, it’s such a beautiful website (and each topic comes with a free e-book, so check it out!). And I am a popcorn ADDICT so I bookmarked this to come back to…like, every night.
