As somebody who likes predictability and structure I couldn’t have gone more wrong than starting a blog, no? Ideas for posts are an ebb and flow [current state: too many ideas, hard to follow through with just one]. The outcome of recipes you test? Major hits followed by major fails [hoping to turn my current experiment into a good one, though ;)]. And these link posts? Some weeks I’ll sit down to finish the post either Friday or Saturday night with hardly anything I find worthy sharing – which doesn’t mean nothing good has appeared on other blogs; I simply missed it – and others I find so many I already save a few for the upcoming week. Just so I’m not cramming these posts too much and you find yourself with 15 open tabs at once [learn from my mistakes: you laptop might crash …].
Long story short: no matter how unpredictable and messy blogging can get – it’s awesome. Just like these links that I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did. If you have a spare minute I’d be curious to hear which ones you especially enjoyed and/or your opinion.
Have a great Sunday!
