The benefit of doing these link shares only every two weeks? More time to read blogs = way more good posts for you. Though this might not be so beneficial anymore once the days get warmer and we’d much rather spend our weekends outside after weekdays in the office. Then again, the same will be true for you as well as me so maybe less posts per round-up then? Ah, my mind’s running wild [again] and looking into the future rather than stay in the present. But that’s where this week’s fabulous posts are so let’s stay here. Or: go there. I hope you find something of interest for you in this mix so:
Happy reading and happy Sunday!
