Link Love



As I’ve been prepping the blog for the big relaunch, I’ve been going back through older posts and doing some pruning. Honestly, there were just a number of posts that were lacking in content, rather more along the lines of a LiveJournal emotion-dump, and that’s not something you guys really want to read! What I did do, however, during the pruning process, was pull some of my favorite links from old Link Love posts, which I’ll be sprinkling throughout my Sunday roundups over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

The blog of “unnecessary” quotation marks is a gem

What fun links have you found lately?

  • Can i just say that I love the new look around here and I enjoy your Youtube videos too. You have a lovely voice! A Harry Potter dinner party sounds fab.

    • Why thank you! It seems like everyone always despises the sound of their own voice (I know hearing myself on the phone always makes me cringe, like “Who is that speaking!? It sounds nothing like me!”)

  • That unnecessary quotation marks one is “amazing”!! My favourite thing all week!

    • I find myself overusing air-quotes and sarcastic quotation marks, but that was just the icing on the cake xD

  • (So glad you put back Disqus comments! LOL)

    Nice links. Also, that “unnecessary” quotation marks blog reminded me 😀

    • Disqus was just the way to go 🙂

      Ahhh! Vandaleyes! Why have I never seen that before; it’s great!

  • Allison Poorman

    loved the deathly hallows dinner party!

  • You always post the BEST links!! I love the one about creative thinking! That Deathly Hallows party is fantastic!!!

  • We have a pop up skating rink right outside my city that only comes during the winter holidays and its so fun. They also have a Polar Express exhibit with a train as well as a walk thru Christian based story of Christmas. My family always makes it a priority and we go at least twice a year.


    • That sounds like so much fun! I love when cities do pop-up holiday/seasonal things — it always seems to make the season that much more special!

    The blog with unnecessary quotes makes me laugh and cringe all at the same time! Love it.

  • The unnecessary quotes and the Pinterest for a week – ahhh….
