Reads From Around the Web–The Catch Up Edition

in Blogging & Social Media

What with the holidays and the new year and all that mumbo jumbo, it’s been a while since I’ve done a Reads From Around the Web. And at this point, my list is getting really long, and I’m feeling like I’ll NEVER get to share all these with you! So instead of my normal 5 links (what? You didn’t know I had a set number I linked? Pshaw!), I’m gonna do a nice big linkup. Because there are SO MANY links here, I’m gonna try and group them for you guys, and then you have to just believe that I adore these posts and go read them ok?

That last one made me kind of ragey. Because if you don’t feel like your body is enough of a ticking time bomb, you’re walking around with a giant PRE-EXISTING CONDITION sign blinking over your head, just waiting for the insurance powers-that-be to yank your coverage out from underneath you.

Off to read the rest…especially interested in the branding against boys post. The “girls rule, boys drool” style of girl power has always irritated me.
