Good good links #175

With the year coming to a close in no more than a few days something else is finding its – temporary? Final? – end, too:  The Good good links. As hinted at for a while I’ve decided to lay off this blog series. Whether for a few weeks, months or for good I can’t and don’t want to predict at this point.  Originally, I was going to share a few more words on the why but things got wordy too fast – talk about some serious self-reflection – and I decided to postpone this for another day.

Before the link lovin’ goes, though, here’s another round-up of [some of the many] posts I wouldn’t want you to miss. Ironically, I found way too many for one post just the week I decided to lay this series to rest … who knows what that’s mean to say …?!

Good good links

 

 

Good good [food for thought]

An Illusion of Confidence via Ally in Blunderland

Something that can’t be repeated often enough. A reminder to not judge or assume because you  never know the full story.

I am more than a food blogger via Hummusapien

As bloggers we don’t ever have to feel reduced to our niche – be it food, fashion, fitness or whatever else. Our online outlets are a reflection of our personalities and lives as a whole.

 

Good good [advice and inspiration]

Give Yourself Time To Just…Be. Via Nubby Twiglet

Something we easily forget in a time of social media, constant comparison and the praise of being busy.

It doesn’t work just for exercising or eating – this little mind trick is effective all-around.

Not only can you never start this early enough but in doing these things you’ll be a better and happier person yourself.

Knowing ourselves better and keeping a few things in mind to plan ahead helps us avoid the stress trap.

As so often Georgie’s reflections on her life provide some food for thought, lessons to take away and a relieving perspective on the future of blogging for all of us.

A very simple but important reminder.

 

Food/Cooking

A food trend/mash-up of two magic ingredients I missed this year.

How to Make Peace with Sugar via Refinery 29

This probably seems most fitting after the holidays but really is an important piece of advice all year round.

 

Blogging

Not just in regards to blogging this is something – I think – all of us tend to forget in our quest for growing our blogs, being the best wife/girlfriend/daughter/you name it.

 

Good good [fun]

German Words We Need in English via Swiss Miss

Just a handful of some of the quirkier words my mother tongue has to offer. Fremdschämen ist something I use pretty regularly – too bad, really.

Good good [food]

Hot Chocolate Steel-cut Oats via edible perspective

The comforting [childhood] winter drink turned into a dessert-like breakfast of champions.

If I’d seen this any earlier it would have become our Christmas dessert. Because hi, it’s a giant brownie made from whole nutritious foods.

    I loved the “give yourself time to just be” article. That’s exactly how I felt when I decided to stop blogging last month, word-for-word! (Okay, maybe I didn’t have the realization while I was at a house party in New York–I’m not that cool :P)

    I also loved Kristy’s post about success and Georgie’s post about how her year didn’t live up to her expectations–but was much better than she expected in many ways!
