Good good links #131

If starting every weekly post in the same way wasn’t such a major blogging faux-pas I’d once again cry you a river – Justin Timberlake-style 😉 – over the fact the weekend is almost over already again. Kidding. Plus, my Saturday wasn’t entirely unproductive  – a possible new recipe for the blog?! – and complaining would only steal another precious minute of our already short lifetime. A much better way to spend your lifetime is either spending time with your little nephew – read: my Sunday plans – or read up on some of the latest blog world happenings. How was that for trying to bride over to today’s topic?

Anyway, I hope you’ll have a great Sunday!
