Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:


1. The Freakonomics blog has a Q and A with political economist Tim Groseclose about his new book on media bias, Left Turn. Fascinating.

2. Love this post by Erin McKean in The Boston Globe Ideas section on collecting new words.

3. Writers will also enjoy Becky Tuch’s list of 200 questions writers ask themselves before lunch at Beyond The Margins. Sounds about right to me.

4. As she pursues her goal of raising $50,000 in fifty days to help support the Los Angeles non-profit WriteGirl, Communicatrix serenades us with a (dirty) song. Warning: Not Suitable For Work.

5. Scary Mommy tells us what search terms people have been using to find her blog. Hilarious. (Hat tip: @clevertitleTK)

6. Finally, after the week we’ve just had in London, I think we all need to hit this magic button.


Have a great weekend!

Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. One of my colleagues at www.PoliticsDaily.com pointed me to this list of 15 ways to predict divorce over at The Daily Beast. Check out #15.

2. I absolutely adored this essay by Becky Tuch at Beyond the Margins where the author explains why she’s “breaking up” with Facebook. Priceless!

3. And speaking of Facebook, Ben Casnocha has a thoughtful meditation on youth, identity and social marketing.

4. As always, I’m in love with Roger Ebert’s Journal and especially this post where he launches a campaign for real movies.

5. As someone who writes a lot about her family, I confess that this post by Lisa Gornick about how to write about your kids on Christina Baker Kline’s blog really made me think twice.

6. Finally, another gem from Michelle Kerns’ Book Examiner blog at Examiner.com. This one lists 30 famous authors whose work was rejected. (Hat tip: Lisa Romeo Writes.)
