Lovely Links Liven Up Living Rooms
Sep 24 2008

Well, they might not liven up your living room but I didn’t want to write the overused term “Link Love” in the title of this post.  I’ve been meaning to share some links to interesting posts I have read/perused recently and here they are:

Best Mommy Blogs for Parents – Vanessa Van Petten writes a couple of blogs targeted at teens and tweens and she felt my blog was a good one for teenagers.  I’m still far from the teenage years with my kids, but I’m flattered to know my topics are appropriate for teenagers to read!

Massive R2-D2 Cake – Featured on Parents Magazine’s blog called goodyblog.  Wow, what a cake! I tried to get a PokeMon cake for our son’s recent birthday and couldn’t find one.  We had to settle for Speed Racer.

Boutique Up – A site I recently discovered that sends out queries from people looking for products to represent in boutique shops!  Kind of like HARO but for boutiques.

What will Barack Obama do for small businesses and entrepreneurs as president and What Will John McCain do for small businesses and entrepreneurs as president – Wendy at Sparkplugging went out a limb to discuss politics on her blog but did so by focusing on what the issues were for small business owners…specifically ones who work from their home and/or have less than 5 employees.  Both articles are interesting reads.  The one on Obama had many more comments than the one on McCain…go figure!

Carnival of Healing – Many links to many posts about healing, self empowerment and spirituality.  This one was hosted by my online friend Pearl.

Leave Wall Street, Join A Startup – by Fred Wilson, a New York VC.  Good advice since there will be many leaving Wall Street…

Happy Birthday to the reason IttyBiz exists – by Naomi at IttyBiz.  I’ve followed Naomi’s blog off and on since she started it.  She has got some freaking amazing writing talent!  Not everyone can write such humorous, harsh, and informative blog posts.  Can’t wait until she figures out how to weave in a romance novel into her writing style.  I even tried to hire her a couple of times but my emails got lost in her waterfall of emails so I chalked it up to fate and bad timing.  This post will make you laugh and cry at the same time!

    Aruni, you’re a great model for keeping up with keeping up, and doing this gracefully.

    Most recently your blog led me to Naomi at IttyBiz. Truthfully, that was so far off my usual path, i know NO other way i could have POSSIBLY stumbled on that delightful surprise with coffee this morning. 😉

    You both — in completely different ways, in fact almost being opposites on some spectrum not yet defined — are living proof that getting UP and simply paying attention helps contribute to an intriguing take on life.

    Am hoping your life soars the rest of the week and weekend and i look forward to what emerges as a result in your posts next week.

    @Sherry – Naomi is very talented. I wish I could write like her, but my mother reads my blog. 🙂 Naomi’s blog is a big part of her business. I blog on the side. I probably need to incorporate a blog into my company site….someday soon!

    @pearl – I very much agree that we all need healing and not only once in a while but almost daily. I always find that smiling or seeing someone smile is a little healing everyday. 🙂
