We made it back to the weekend. Congratulations. Now it’s time to enjoy it. That means snacking on some delicious links with warmy frothy drinks and then perhaps doing something totally crazy like going outside and leaving the computer behind. To get you started, here are some of my favs from the weeks. As always, your additions are most welcome.
I’ll kick us off.
- Harnessing Entrepreneurial Manic-Depression: Maybe the most interesting thing I read all week. Read it.
- Things Loren Feldman has learned: I love this. It’s a list from Loren about some of his greatest life lessons. I shared it earlier this week and it’s so good I’m sharing it again. Read it now if you missed it the first time.
- Advice to writers: Whether you’re looking to make it in writing, blogging or, really, anything else, there are some good words here. Most notably the importance of learning how to take criticism and keep on going. There are a lot of unhappy people out there. Most of them want nothing more than to stand on Twitter and yell things at you. Find humor in them, use the grain of truth (if any) and keep on.
- Why you’re not married: So how your Valentine’s Day go? Yeah? In case you’re unwed and things were a bit more bitter than you would have hoped, here are some reasons why you’re not married. Proud to be shallow and selfish over here. ;)
- Old Photo Love: What happens when you pick a photo from your youth and try and recreate it as an adult? What happens is AWESOME!
- It’s harder to get started today: Really depressing statistics about why it’s harder to establish yourself today than it was when your parents first bought their house. Renting, it is!
- “Skinny” Pepsi: Probably the most disgusting thing to come out of this week. And I’m not even talking about the taste.
- Auto-correct gets man killed: Er, use those phones carefully, friends.
- Mr. Hanna Montana’s Achy Broken Heart: I’m sure I’ll lost any street cred I had stored up by posting this, but give it a read if you have time. It’s a really intimate look at a daddy who fears he may have lost his little girl and the anger and confusion that brings. If you can, try and forget for a moment that we’re talking about Miley Cyrus.
- The king and us, myth and all: It’s my article from the Times Union about stuttering and how it’s (wrongly) portrayed in The King’s Speech. A slightly shameless add, but it’s important people know the truth.
That’s it from me. Your turn!
