It’s been a long time, years maybe, since I’ve done a blog post sharing my favorite links of the moment. If you find these interesting (or not), please let me know, by commenting, you quiet lurkers you! [I see you!] If you find these helpful or of any use I’ll try to make it a regular thing.
The scary: A scary pediophilia scare for a mommy blogger, and how the internet can draw universes smaller than we can ever imagine.
The mommy: Baraka shared an interesting article on nursing in Mongolia- the practice is starkly different from the US, so much so, my jaw literally dropped as I read it. Still, there is a lot we can gain if we adopted some of their attitude on the subject.
The reading: JK Rowling gave a fantastic interview with Oprah (even if parts of it broke down into a “I’m rich, your’e rich too! Isn’t it crazy?!”) but the cool part? she didn’t rule out more Harry Potter books!
The creative: Just found this awesome site with tons of articles on creativity that are more than just pat advice but real inspirational stuff.
The writing: A bunch of you have asked me about writing a book, how to get an agent, etc. I refer you to wonderful blogger and author, Mel, she has the whole process from writing to publishing broken down for your edification. Just look at the side bar on the right and click away!
The fooding: Tracy sent me here and I. am. in. love. The pictures of the food are gorgeous and I’ve made a few meals from the site that have turned out spectacular! My favorite recipe so far: Garlicky baked french fries!
The rallies: 10-30-10 Jon Stewart’s rally to restore sanity (alongside Colbert’s competing rally to keep fear alive). Seriously hoping to go. Seriously think you should too!
The political: And speaking of Stewart, he was on point with his thoughts on the Obama administration: I think people feel a disappointment in that there was a sense that Jesus will walk on water and now you are looking at it like, ‘Oh look at that, he’s just treading water’ … I thought he’d do a better job,” said Stewart.
The bloggety blog: Yasmine is back to blogging after an extended hiatus, check out her beautiful reflections on life and her equally awesome photography skills! [Ahem, Yasmine this is my way of politely nudging you to keep on keeping on! :)]
Thoughts? Any linkety love for you?
