Link love (Powered by pesto and pedometers)

nzmuse link love roundupI deemed April the month of self care. Sometimes you gotta be selfish.

I feel like I’ve emerged from a dark cave. Like I’ve been sleepwalking through life (which in a way I have) and I’m finally truly present again. It’s a grand feeling.

I’ve been really touched by how willing you guys have been to share your own troubles, stories, struggles, experiences with me. I feel like the world would be a better place if everyone was more open with each other. Some days I hate the internet – a consequence of spending every working hour on it – but every so often, I’m reminded of its awesome power for good.

Who gets to be an artist, really?

Why Aucklanders won’t leave Auckland

The diminishing economics of blogging

Reflecting on season 1 of Fresh Off The Boat 

Resolving to find contentment and happiness right now 

Tune into the universe and listen to life’s whispers 

There’s been quite a few posts debunking the glamorous myth of travel writing/blogging; here’s a carefully considered one I totally recommend 

And finally, my bud Sarah has put out an awesome e-book, Five Figure Writer, for freelancers. Not exaggerating. If I was in the biz, this is definitely a resource I’d pay for.

    I have friends in Auckland and they say they are pretty satisfied with what the place has. So many good reads in this edition of link love. Yay!

    Oh gosh the “Who gets to be an artist?” article really resonates with me as a lower-case a artist in a relationship with an upper-case A Artist. Hands down, if both of us had the money, we’d be pursuing our art (writing for me and visual art and costume design for him) instead of working. But, sadly, we haven’t the means, so our art is relegated to our “free time” so-called because it yields nothing in the way of dollar bills. Though it is something I want us to have the ability to pursue later, once we have our financial footing in place.

    Belated… but THANK YOU for sharing the new book! And that’s probably my most honored recommendation right there — though if you were in this biz, I’d no doubt be reading your book by now :-).
