This Month in Links: Suddenly, I’m Appropriate

by gigigriffis

Yeah, those are gelattos in the shape of flowers. Win.
Fun fact for you: Google apparently thinks my blog is about nudists and singles hotline numbers. Or so say my search stats. Though other than those queries, this month has been fairly appropriate and un-strange in terms of search phrases bringing traffic to the blog. Am I getting more appropriate? Must fix immediately. [Insert dead baby joke here.]

In other news, I’m thinking about changing This Week in Links a bit. I do stumble across things every week that make me chuckle or think and I do want to keep sharing those things with you in case they also make you chuckle or think (as both chuckling and thinking are very worthwhile things to do). However, based on the not-so-popularity of these posts, I think I may relegate myself to sharing them with you in two ways: 1) Facebook (so if we aren’t Facebook friends, we probably should be. I love meeting new readers online and I promise I won’t deny your request…unless you spam me) and 2) one monthly This Month in Links post highlighting the best of the best. Thoughts?

And, finally, in other news: I’m going to start taking Fridays off from technology. No emails. No blog. No Facebook. No computer. I’m sure I’ll break my own rules from time to time, but I think taking a one-day hiatus from technology each week is probably a really healthy decision. So, don’t fret if you don’t see me around the interwebs. I’m just off doing real-world stuff, like trying on my entire wardrobe or attempting to make pizza from scratch.

Without further ado, though, this week online:

1. Illustrations of famous literary quotes.

2. Love is simple. Love is hard.

3. A neurotic cat chasing a pill bottle. You’re welcome.

4. The truth about feminism (hint: we’re trying to steal your manhood).

Annnnddddd, this month’s most popular post: “I Want to Be Sexy.” 

That’s all she wrote, folks. See you next week.

1. While the links are sometimes very entertaining (or just really wonderful, like the “love” one, above), I mostly read your blog to read stuff written by you. So I’d support going to a once-a-month links post.
2. I strongly agree that technology-free days are healthy. Do it.
3. It’s severely disappointing that you are getting more appropriate. We need less about money-saving tips, life goals, and pet travel, more about bad dates and low-quality fish-white belly images!
4. I’m kidding about #3. Mostly.

Gelato as flowers … sexy!
I think a day off from the interweb is a brilliant idea. How you manage that with a phone that is also an iphone… tricky! You can take and make calls but not text? LOL! (we do not have a landline). I like the once a month idea. Or FB … try once a month see what happens.

@Roommate#1: Yeah. I need more fish-white belly in my life as well.

@Monte: Luckily, I’m kind of a secret troglodite, so I have the cheapest, crappiest non-smartphone cell ever. So no email checking temptation there. :)

I enjoy the links when (A)I’m not reading your blog on my smartphone and/or (B) when I have time to click! So sometimes they get skipped out of sheer necessity or a sad lack of time. Perhaps this reason is shared with other readers?

BTW, my sister is rolling through Denver in a few days (weeks?) and may contact you for an in-person meeting!

@Bri, yes! We’re in the process of planning a lunch!

[…] month, I started a new thing I like to call No-Technology Friday. The gist of the idea is this: take one day to get away from my computer screen. No email checking. […]
