Happy Friday!

 

This week’s Essential Reading:

  • Welcome to the “Incomes Generation” — a short talk on how having a side-hustle may be what is best for employees…because some people like to consider their “desk job” employers to simply be their biggest client in their multiple-income life
  • Add this webinar to your calendar if you want to see some magic in progress
  • Not only does Elise do a great job of explaining a way to give life to old content, she does an excellent job of promoting a course she wrote in the process…without the reader feeling like their being sold something. If you are looking for ideas on how to create content that refers people to your products without feeling “sell-y” you should seriously take a look
  • Did you see my ridiculous face on Amy’s announcement that 30 Days of Lists will return this September? I need to remember to get “camera ready” for our next Skype date
  • What iphoneoraphy taught Ronnie
  • The complete guide to building your personal brand
  • Chocolate chip cookie dough frosted brownies
  • Give an old (and maybe even ugly) table a second life with these simple tips
  • This mini-album has me eyeballing my supplies
  • While my heart belongs to rdio for my music streaming needs, Songza is pretty nice to have on deck when we have friends over or if I just need to have something on in the background while I work
  • Yes, bears poop in the woods…but how to little kids (and adults, for that matter!) do it when there isn’t a toilet around?
  • Casey doesn’t just hike in LA…he added this hike report from Tepozetco pyramid
  • Does the idea of packing for a picnic have you flustered? I blame Pinterest, to be honest. Terri has some simple ideas for an easy picnic dinner with your family

 

Have a great weekend!

I officially changed my posting schedule to three days a week. After making some small updates to the Spark ecourse, I paused on the day that starts out with, “Seriously, what’s wrong?” and started writing a list of the things that have been on my mind lately. I noticed that under “feeling” on my weekly Currently Lists there is some variation of overwhelmed/unsure/anxious/like I’m not doing enough for almost every week for the past two months. So it was time something changed and it was the frequency of my posts.

Expect a few more creative projects. Expect better photos of my Project Life layouts. Expect a new word/phrase under the “feeling” portion of my Currently Lists.

This week’s Essential Reading posts are from the archives, because there is life for posts beyond the front page:

I’m taking the weekend off — or at least, mostly off…I want to spend less than 2 hours online this weekend. Emails can wait until Monday, I don’t need to share anything on Instagram, my Pinterest account is fine the way it is. We’ll see how long this lasts…

This week’s Essential Reading includes:

Have a great weekend!

Summer is finally here in Southern California. Our county fairs are in full swing. We didn’t get much June Gloom and the heat certainly arrived seemingly overnight. The hum of air conditioners is lulling me to sleep each night. And the air is filled with the smell of BBQ. It isn’t such a bad place to be right now…come September I’ll be complaining about how intolerable things are and how I need an escape, but I’ll just try to enjoy things for now. Summer means warm evenings out with friends, Comic-Con in San Diego, time to catch up on favorite shows, any excuse for an Arnold Palmer, and plenty of reasons to get down to the beach. Summer is pretty okay, I guess.

Happy 4th, fellow Americans! To the rest of the world: Happy Friday! 

Amy and I are not-so-secretly working on the next round of 30 Days of Lists (subscribe to our mailing list here if you want to be the first to get awesome news from us) and one of the lists that came out of our brainstorming session was a variation of “the little things”…As I sit here, I’m reminded of that simple prompt and have a few things I would list right away: Iced green tea, gold glitter nail polish, the smell of sunscreen, sore forearms from kayaking, fostering friendships, working with best friends (on different projects), and that warmth your skin gives off after being in the sun for a little while. I liked that prompt because it reminds me to stay in the moment — which is difficult for me when I’m writing posts like this and scheduling social media updates a week ahead of time (not always, but I try). I’m always working weeks or months in the future that I find it difficult to slow down…It’s nice to have a holiday that’s so family-centered to remind me to slow the heck down.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
