What to read for the next week...the one about the Best Blog Posts

Hi friends...I'm traveling for a bit so won't be doing my usual lengthy ruminations about the pursuit of a well-lived life.

So I wanted to use this space to promote other blogs and posts. Add yourself, your friend, a recent or an old post...any post you think other people should read.

Make sure in the text you put a brief description and make sure your link goes to the specific post. Add yourself as the person who made the suggestion and why you're suggesting in the comments, if you want (so everyone make sure to check comments).

Thanks and have a great weekend everyone!

Charles Eisenstein (the guy I've been raving about for the past few months) started a blog. I recommend it for some good, thoughtful posting.


Hope you have a good time at your conference.

I am supposed to be staying away from the internet today....but I was going to do this earlier in the morning when I saw it and forgot. I'm recommending The Gift. I like the idea of it - the blogger made a promise to herself to write EVERY DAY FOR A YEAR. Some posts are great and others are just the best she could do after a long day of work and taking care of kids. I just think it will be interesting to see how her writing develops over the year. Then I added myself for good measure (why not! I'm not going to Blogher!)

In the "hump day" spirit, I threw in my "unauthorized Hump Day Hmm" from a few weeks ago. I hope the self-promotion is OK :-). (And I'm not going to BlogHer either, so this is my chance!)

Took a peek at my Feedjit and picked the most recent interesting post (as determined by traffic). Enjoy!

Hey hey now no hating it up on Harvard, especially from any MIT angles. Harvard is da bomb. A person who applies herself can learn more there in one class in one semester than nearly anywhere else, including in life. :)

I actually remember that article, Angela---great pick!!

I fed Mr. Linky a couple of times. The first is a humorous and slightly snarky take on some of the victims of the collateral damage inflicted during the Global War on Terror, and the other a slightly more serious look at the "rest of the story" (again, focused on victims of collateral damage) regarding the recent article in the Chron about local government overtime spending.

Saw a photo of you at BlogHer! You looked like you were having blast!

Next year, year fa shure!

I hope you had a wonderful time at BlogHer. I just wanted to tell you that I think your post on Blog Nosh got more comments than any other post we've ever put up. And such comments! Full of detail and thoughtfulness and conversation with each other. It takes a really wonderful writer to pull that out of readers. Very nicely done! was me.

I thought I posted a comment, but I see the Internets ate it.

I was looking at the photos of you on Deb's blog, and you look great! Dang! Did you have just the best time ever? I am so going next year, if I have to save nickels all year!

BlogHer Update! I wants!
Wait! Holy smokes...what is going on with my computer. I DID leave a comment. I seriously need to get more sleep.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

In defense of vanity...I think

Do you have one of those issues where you argue with yourself? Where you just aren't sure what you actually think because there are so many messages and opinions on the topic around you? I have more than one like this. However, there is one topic that has been struggling to the top of my mind recently: vanity and perceived vanity. Can vanity be a good thing? Vanity has historically been truly reviled. Vanity is number seven of the Seven Deadly Sins. It's the doppleganger of number seven on the Seven Holy Virtues list: humility. There are many moralistic tales of how vanity makes you evil and brings about a spectacular downfall. Consider the lady who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Google Borgia+vanity and find plenty. The Brothers Grimm and Disney got in on the act too. The Disney message seems to be: the truly beautiful don't need to be vain. They are just naturally eye-catchingly gorgeous. And they are all gorgeous. Show me the Reubenesque Pr

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo
