October: Links I Love

Holy cannoli, one second it was fall and the next they’re calling for snow on Saturday. What is this? I think I’ll stick with views like this for awhile still thankyoukindly.


Yeah, soak that in for a second.


I’m promising to myself – and all of you – that I’ll actually post in November on the regular MWF routine instead of this when-I-get-to-it Tuesday/Thursday/whenever routine that isn’t really routine. If I don’t, send the encouragement and pick-me-ups, because it means I’m drowning in life. Whoops.

But it’s a happy drowning, I assure you.

Before I get into some deep discussion on life balance and busy-ness, I’m going to let this month’s fabulous web finds cut in.

October. Featuring, in no particular order, some seriously passionate inspiration (pun intended), some T. Swift outside of 1989, a one-of-a-kind guide to blogging, how to keep your friendship above your love, the coolest techie things maybe ever, 8 productivity hacks to try right now, the next thing on my shopping wishlist, and OK Go’s newest viral video.
