Reads From Around the Web

I love writing at this here blog, but just as much, I enjoy reading and being inspired by other bloggers. So I wanted to share some of what’s been in my reader lately!

Over at Wandering Scientist: Don’t Lean Back Ahead of Time and Other Rants I Posted Elsewhere. This post covers the question of should you lighten your expectations of yourcareer until after you have kids, the issue of privilege, and the unrealistic expectations of perfection put out on modern motherhood (in part, due to the internet!). Every time I read one of Cloud’s posts, it rattles around in my brain for days and days, and this one is no exception.

Over at cribchronicles: trust. If you want to see beautiful writing, wrapped around an awful story, wherein is hidden a wonderful reminder, this is the post for you.

At frugan: And miles to pedal before she sleeps. A fun, wonderful (and exhausting) look at the world of two. Amy’s post made me feel like I was right there with her family as they celebrated a long holiday weekend, the lows of toddlerhood mixed in with the awesome highs.

Over at blogging with mittens: God Via the Internet. Shasta brought this really intriguing video to my attention of a speech by Jim Gilliam called ‘The Internet is My Religion.’ Really, just go check it out (and Shasta’s great thoughts about it).

And finally, just for fun, over at Mommy PhD:And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye …

(I had so much fun a few weeks ago picking out my favorite blogs, but such a hard time narrowing it down, I think I may do this more often. If you guys like it, that is).

Thanks for the mention! I really do love Jim Gilliam’s concept and message. Also, couldn’t resist the Dilbert comic considering I’ve loved that particular one since jr high.

Thanks, Ginger! I’m super flattered. And will definitely check out the other reads.

Thanks for the mention! And such nice words. I’m afraid a write a lot of cruft, too. This one happened to resonate with people, which was nice!
