Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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


1. You will not be able to take your eyes off of these iconic photos of the 9/11 tragedy. (Hat tip: Boston Globe’s Brainiac Blog)

2. Also moving is the post entitled My Secret at oneblueberry.com. (Hat tip: 37 Days)

3. I loved discovering Leah Dieterich’s blog THXTHXTHX, where she writes daily thank you notes to everything from armpit hair to Japanese author Haruki Murakami. Here’s an interview with Dieterich over on Salon.

4. My favorite new Mommy Blogger is Samantha Bee (of The Daily Show fame), who has a hilarious new blog at Babble.com called Eating Over The Sink.

5. Finally, here’s a handy-dandy guide to social media avatars at insego. I’m afraid I’m guilty of the duck face.


Have a great weekend!

Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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

1.Well, folks. Sandra Tsing Loh has once again knocked it out of the park. Here she is in The Atlantic, talking about how women these days are married to their houses.

2. One of the main ways that I stay connected to U.S. politics (and American pop culture) is by watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. If you’re also a fan, then you’ll also love this interview with Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee in Salon about Bee’s new memoir.

3. Like Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project fame, I also embrace novelty and love working with others. Be sure to read Gretchen’s post on the power of creative collaboration, which includes a link to the comic she co-created with Chari Pere entitled “Gretchen Rubin in The Quest for a Passion.” Lovely.

4. If you follow the World Cup – and even if you don’t – you must watch this hilarious rendering of last week’s famous World Cup match between England and USA…in lego. (Courtesy of The Guardian)

5. Finally, another must-see video of what the help desk was like in the Middle Ages.
