I’ve never been one to do wrap ups of cool posts or anything, but this week I read SO MANY great ones that I just had to share!
Interesting posts I found this week
- Allyssa Barnes offered 18 types of blog posts to get you out of a blogging rut.
- Cocorrina shared apps and designer hacks.
- Spruce Rd. says you should expand your business intentionally.
- Elle shared her method of how to come up with 60 original blog post ideas in 30 minutes.
- I don’t do much “blog management” myself, but if you do you should check out how Celine manages her blog.
- Made Vibrant published two awesome posts: one on how to deal with rejection and another about why she turned down $15,000 in revenue. That second one in particular really resonated with me, because that’s sort of what I’m doing right now.
- The Blog Market has published a comparison between WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
- Iris says you should never apologise for liking a book.
- Angie is offering free vintage frame clip art to download.
- Hello Brio Studio shared a guide on how to make your own font using glyphs and illustrator. Now I REALLY want to give it a go!
- Erin admits that she’s afraid of success.
- Sarah thinks it’s important to be an authentic voice.
- I loved this list on BuzzFeed about 25 secrets freelancers won’t tell you. So true!!
- I’ve fallen in love with Kimberly Crossland’s blog, and her most recent post is 3 reasons to stop stealing other people’s words.
In exercising news…
I’m at the end of week six in Couch to 5K. You know what that means? I completed the 20 minute run! That run is so daunting, but I’m so pleased that I completed it for the second time!
I also started a new routine called Nerd Fitness. Here’s the workout I did on Thursday:
And can I just say… EVERY MUSCLE IN MY BODY FEELS LIKE JELLY!!
This exercise worked parts of me that I didn’t even know existed. It was fine at first, then the next day (and still today!) I was sore EVERYWHERE! Clearly I need to do this more often, because it’s like certain parts of my body have just been in a coma for years and are only now waking up.
