Saturday Sampling

I am doing my best to get around and read the other INCREDIBLE blogs that are out there.  People have asked me how, with everything I have going on, I manage to read blogs.  Blogs are usually fairly quick reads.  They are very easy to read in short bursts in my schedule where the downtime and my attention span has a small window .  In the school pick-up line.  While waiting for a client.  In the doctor’s office.  The few minutes before I go to sleep. You get the idea.

Anyway, here is a sampling of some posts from this past week that inspired me, educated me, or made me think.

I also acknowledge that I cannot read everything.  The amount of good material is overwhelming.

Do you think I missed anything significant?  I try to look for variety.  Can you help me with that?  Please post any of your recommendations below so we can all benefit!

  1. Love reading your blog and liked seeing some of these as well…the last one was a bit funny since my kids gave out the cards with tattoos and I also wondered when we started spending so much money on Valentines day this year :).
