It’s been a while since I’ve done a favorite link round-up. If you enjoyed it please let me know so I can try to make it a more regular thing!
The fooding: Azmina shared this savory [and seemingly simple] recipe on Pad See Ew. Can’t wait to hit up an Asian market to give it a try! [Amazing how a simple bottle of Sriracha has now turned me into a wannabe Asian chef]
The parenting: A new article on formula versus breastfeeding and maternal sleep shows there’s no difference in sleep quality for either set of mothers. Good to know since I’ve been wondering lately if I should reconsider formula since I heard it leads to more sleep for mom and baby- and sleep deprivation? It’s ugly.
The writing: My lovely agent shared this awesome article on how to avoid “Bore-geous” writing, if you’re a writer its a must read!
The thoughtful: This post about time and the tangibility of it through daily calendars doesn’t sound powerful but is beautifully written and has left me thinking all day.
The weird: This pilot pretended to be a cardiologist and taught cardiology to doctors for decades. Proof positive that life is stranger than fiction indeed.
The You-Tubing: You’ve likely already seen “Where The Hell Is Matt?” but I can’t get the song out of my head and the video of this guy dancing around the world just gets to me each and every time. [oh and if anyone would like to fund my trip around the world- call me! I can dance. Kind of.]
The blogging: I’ve been meaning to write a post about blogging but this excellent post on how to successfully blog really says it all. If you’re a new blogger check it out.
The desi blogging: Mezba wrote an interesting post in favor of arranged marriages in response to a linked article vehemently opposed to them. [If you’re looking for a basic understanding of arranged marriages and my take on it you can read this].
The mommy blogging: It seems guilt about co-sleeping is not unusual in a culture that encourages independence and individualism from the outset. Like Murgdan I never intended to co-sleep but it works for me [read: sleep]. Her post is honest and resonated with me [And she’s just a compelling blogger in general].
National Delurking Week!!!! It just a part of life after the ‘RSS feed’ that more people read your blog than actually leave a comment. Since there’s a week set out out to delurk I thought I’d ask if you’re reading to stop and say hi! As the lovely Mel put it on her blog:
It is fairly easy. Leave a comment in the comment section below admitting that you’re here. You can simply raise your hand and meekly admit that you’re here with a simple, one-word “here” comment; or you can proudly raise your hand and tell us all a bit about yourself (my preferred method); or you can tell me what type of cookie you’d be if you were a lump of cookie dough (see, I’m trying to make it easy for you by even providing a comment prompt). The point is that I want to know about the people who read me.
Amen Mel! Happy Friday y’all. Any interesting links you discovered into this week?
