Now for the links:
Spiritual / Inner Life
- Not the You You Remember by Betsy Childs for TGC.
- Why It Doesn't Matter How You Feel About Your Friends by Shauna Niequist. File under "things that make you go hmm..."
- The Art of Relearning to Read by Shannon McKee. My husband and I have been talking about this a lot lately. (You can put us in the camp that thinks broad reading - while applying discernment - is the best path.)
- Sometimes Simple Feels Complicated by Allison Vesterfelt at The Art of Simple.
- 4 Things You Don't Have to Do with Your Money by Kara Fleck at The Art of Simple.
- 7 Habits of Parents Whose Kids Solve Problems by Janel Breitenstein for MomLife Today.
- Not Something You Do, But Someone You Raise by Summer Saldana for The Better Mom.
- Let it Go by Anna Elliott for Writer UnBoxed.
- One Surprising Way to Write Better by Emily Wenstrom for The Write Practice.
- I'd Know that Voice Anywhere by Katrina Kittle for Writer UnBoxed. This is one thing I will call out every time in a book review: your characters should not all sound the same.
- Blogging Freehand by Melissa Wiley. I've read her blog for a long time. It's always inspiring.
- One-Third of Americans are Freelancers Now by Elizabeth Nolan Brown for Reason. My husband fits this description, and I guess I will too, when I start making more money blogging. (And that's not considering babysitting or piano lessons) Multiple income streams definitely seems like the best way to navigate our economy.
- Why Britain is Poorer Than Any US State, Other Than Mississippi by Fraser Nelson in The Spectator.
- Harper Mills: Should Marja Mills' Memoir Have Been Published? By Aida Edemariam. This caught my eye because I just finished the book in question. (You can see my review in this post: Books of 2014 - August)
- We Cannot Afford to View Children as Commodities by Allison Kieselowsky for The Federalist.
- Rolling Stone Discovers that Everyone Homeless is Gay by David Harsanyi for The Federalist. Yet more evidence that if Americans could actually do math our country would be a different world.
Just for Fun
- 10 Place Names Brits and Americans Pronounce Differently by Laurence Brown at Mind the Gap.
- 7 British Animal Idioms That Will Baffle Americans by Jon Langford at Mind the Gap. (Note: I've heard Americans use some of these so I doubt most of us would be too baffled.)
So, what caught your eye this week?
