A quick reminder before we get started that it's been a big week over at Ready to Blog! Even with just a little under 15 hours left to enter, I've been really thrilled by the response! One note: If you aren't comfortable commenting with your real name on the Facebook Fan Page, that's OK! Go ahead and like the page, and leave your blog name/a little about yourself in the comments here! That way everyone can find you and your blog and get to know you! The other ways to enter are easy, so see the giveaway page to find out more! I'm really looking forward to working with the lucky winner!
One other note: I've set up contact pages to 1) suggest links for This and That (with credit given, of course) and 2) to request tutorials from Ready to Blog. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't want to make those pages visible (?), so until I sort it out, email any weekly link suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "This and That!" and any requests for a tutorial to email@example.com with the subject "Teach me things!" I'll try to get the forms fixed ASAP though!
+ I usually only see good things written about Corey Booker, so I found this piece by the New York Times really interesting. It's so important to have a balanced view of the people we admire, so fan or detractor of Booker, it's worth a look!
+ "Something is wrong with my iPad: I still hate my life." Lol for days.
+ It's stuff like this that make people hate our generation. But, really, I'm going to have to start using this on my templates.
+ If Chuck Todd tells you to read something, you read it. No matter how long it is. Fascinating.
+ I read the Daily Mail so that you won't have to. Kelly Osbourne, you rock for this: "People think I lost weight and then got happy, but that's not how it works. You have to get happy first." Carry on, girlfriend.
+ "How Google's designers are quietly overhauling search."
+ Thank you, Betsy, for this link! I'm dead! The "Boobypack"!
+ The Lonely Planet staffers share some of their 2013 travel resolutions. I really love "step foot on a new continent". I guess now I've technically been to Asia, but I'm not going to count it until I take a proper, dedicated trip!
+ The robots are coming.
+ This is making me want to revamp my design questionnaire for clients!
+ Karen Handel is literally an idiot.
+ A meaningful holiday gift guide for patients. This is absolutely amazing!
+ Love this post on what to tip your hairstylist! Really, I love that entire blog!
+ Really interesting conversation between photographers on clients who bring "pinspired" ideas to their shoots. Personally, I think it's stifling and it would make me uncomfortable, but...hey, I'm not a photographer!
+ Found from Diana's Twitter feed, "How to fall in love with negative feedback."
+ Maybe I should stop cursing so much on Twitter. God is watching.
+ I thought I lost my favorite sweater yesterday (false alarm!), but I found some super cute replacements just in case!
+ My favorite instagram of the week via @howtobeadad because really, I was about to slap someone on Wednesday.
Tired of links yet? ;)
Okay, have great weekends, don't forget to enter the giveaway and I'd be so appreciative if you "liked" the Ready to Blog fan page!
