Once a month, I round up some of the inspiring, intriguing and interesting things that I’ve read and written recently and share them all with you.
- I liked the mix of the philisophical (“there is a difference between being fully authentic and fully transparent”) and the practical (“share your craft with someone other than your mother”) in these blogging tips from Design for Mankind
- The importance of using all of your gifts to diversify your income
- Six phrases that can help leaders make a bigger impact on morale
- Continuing my post from last week… Decoding the linguistics behind Arrival–and a cool Canadian connection
- I have a habit of seeing an interesting book in a store and then proceeding to read a few chapters as I stand there in the aisle. If I’m still enamored with the book after that, I’ll make note of the title so that I can order it from the library. The Girl With All The Gifts is my most recent target. It sucked me in, but then I had to set it aside for awhile–which is unusual for me. After about a week I picked it up again and made it to the end.
My writing elsewhere:
- DIY wood countertops, four years later
- How to play find it with your dog
- Does your dog have a nickname?
- We’re embracing spring at the farm, which means getting into the gardens, getting into the woods and getting into the fields
- It’s also One Room Challenge season. I’m using the creativity that’s taking over the blogosphere to finally finish the office makeover.
- Six years of forsythia blooms
