Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms–hope you have better things to do than read blogs today. (And as a friend of my husband’s posted on Facebook this morning, “To all you non-moms and four-legged moms, Happy Disposable Income Day!”)
What I’m reading
- in print / on screen
I’m glad that I can read in the car again–there was a long time when I couldn’t physically tolerate it for long. I may manage to finish Brutal Youth (June 2013) on our drive home from Oceanside later today. My good luck with Shelf Awareness review candidates this year is holding up.
- on audio
I finished The Cuckoo’s Calling late last week, and while I have several promising candidates in the queue for my next audiobook, I haven’t made a pick yet.
What I’m watching
Nearly every one of our shows is having its season finale this week, except Mad Men. It’s going to be a long summer without new Arrow episodes…
What I’m writing
BlogHer is marking the 10th anniversary of its annual conference with “Selfiebration”
…a 10-week content event that will take a look at where we started, what we’ve built, the mistakes we’ve laughed at, the memories we’ve so lovingly created, and more. We think of it is an internet-wide lovefest, soapbox, and time machine, and we hope you’ll take part. Every week, we will be publishing posts that fit the following categories, all under the hashtag #Selfiebration. And we’ll be serving up prompts and asking for you to link up on topics that inspire you to write your own memories.
and with my busy season officially winding down (the audit’s almost done, woohoo!), I really hope to join in.
What caught my eye this week
I didn’t get much blog-reading done this week because of crunch time on the aforementioned audit, but I did save “The Busy Person’s Guide to Content Curation: A 3-Step Process for Your Blog, Newsletter, or Timeline” from Buffer‘s blog with an eye to improving this section of the Salon.
