Link love (Powered by fresh blood and gleeful song)

Whenever a new team member comes on board, I remember why it is I could never become a teacher. I’m terrible at explaining things, I’m a control freak, and have to resist the urge to everything myself. But nevermind, because at the end of the week I came home to Glee and chocolate cookie ice cream. Also, I finally finished learning the Incubus song I’d been working on for farrrrrrr too long. WIN.


Totally identified with DC Princess’s post on sharing the news of her engagement with her family.

Romance is about the little things, writes Revanche.

I’m a great reader. Also, an amazing RE-reader. But I never thought about why that is, until Lesley blogged about the comforts of a well-loved, well-thumbed tome.

Clare and I have both been reflecting on the future of our niche-less blogs (I still wish I’d come up with Never Niche first!).

Kind of old, but I only just encountered it this week: Helen Jane reminds us to STOP negatively comparing ourselves to others (I know I do it. It’s easy in the PF world. And the fitness world. And the “lifestyle design” world. And the mommy blogger world. And the crafty/house love world.)

Sometimes you need to centre, find yourself and cut out the dark thoughts, says Lindy.

Not That Kind of Girl is back with a list of things she worries about.


SheBloggs on QR codes, resumes and how to make one.

In her latest “journalism sausage” post, Susannah Breslin talks about the difficulties faced by those covering war – and porn.

Jezebel’s Anna North talks about writing in your spare time when writing is your day job, too.

You must read this inspiring tale at Financial Samurai. GO.


FruGal has some cheap and easy cocktail ideas for us.

Hot on the heels of my latest pang of first world guilt, JD tackles the thorny issue of spending and its moral implications.


Despite getting into the royal wedding despite myself, I seem to have missed the hoopla about the wedding cake. Biscuit cake? I’m there.

We all have our page turners – scary ingredients that make us skip to the next recipe.

Little House on the Southern Prairie on the things you should know before making mozzarella from scratch.

Now, I’m not about to get all up in your grill with masses of wedding links, but I just had to share these two:

Happenstance Wedding on all the wedding stationery crap she’s eschewing (my frugal, minimalist and lazy self wholeheartedly applauds!)

And a totally awesome Q&A from A Practical Wedding on inviting your doctor, on photographers not blogging about you, and the topic closest to my heart – DANCING. Or not.

    I love these posts! I find just great stuff here…I want to read that writing post link…I’ve always wondered about that.

    I hope you get some sleep girl!

    Regarding the wedding posts: This kind of makes me feel better I’m not engaged! I get stressed out just thinking about all the decisions I would have to make!

    So, you think you’ll skip out on most of the wedding paper products? I’d love to skip on the papers as well, just to keep things cheaper, and better for the environment. Though a fun idea would be to use seed impregnated paper, which people can plant and get flowers, herbs, etc. from.

    I’m also terrible at explaining things and a control freak (albeit a well-closeted control freak.) And I’m a teacher, haha.

    Also, thank you for doing these. I was worried there would be nothing to do this Sunday but you’ve given me a wealth of stuff to read. It’s seriously awesome.

    Your link to the post about being niche-less is a dead link. I think you missed the l at the end of html.

    Thank you for the link love!
