Reads From Around the Web

Well, despite the fact that I spent MOST of my free time this week reading a book and not blogs, I still have some great stuff for you in this week’s Reads From Around the Web. Although, I need to make this quick–I’ve still got another 2000 pages to read in 2 weeks, so, you know…tick tick tick. But my rush just means it’s faster getting to the good stuff, so let’s do this!

Over at Craftwhack, I’m an Introverted Hermit Who Lives Under a Rock could very well have been written by me, although I’ve never really fought my hermit nature (well, except for a few foolish years in college. But hey, we all have our crazy days). But it’s hard to explain to people who aren’t introverted what it’s like and why you’re NOT upset about staying home again tonight, but this post gets at the heart of it pretty well.

Over at The Happy Home, Emily has started a great discussion about Should Pinterest Stay PG? As Pinterest’s user base grows, it’s definitely facing some criticisms and demands, but should pinners be censored based on what makes one person uncomfortable? Beyond the already set TOS, that is? Emily has started a great conversation about exactly that.

Over at Our Little Apartment, Ashley posted something that I found myself nodding along to quite a bit: Four Reasons I Don’t Get Political Online And Four Sanity Savers. I’ve voiced my opinion on a select few political issues over the years, but I’m entirely too much the peace keeper to really get into it most of the time. I actually love reading a lot of political discourse , but in an election year in particular, it can easily sway from discussion and opinion to bashing and yelling, and I’m just not comfortable with being in that space. Most of the time anyway.

Over at The Well-Read Mom, Alexis takes on the Chris Brown/Grammy brouhaha with Forever: That Is How Long We Should Remember. Alexis hits the nail on the head, but in her typical style, she also brings up a lot of really good questions, questions that make me think (and get riled up).

And finally, to end the week on a positive note, over at Liberating Working Moms Brandee writes the affirmation I didn’t know I needed this week with You Are Impressive. In a world where I constantly feel like I’m barely holding on to all the threads, Brandee reminded me that I’m more than just what my internal view of myself might be. And that seeing myself through the eyes of an outsider can be the best way to remember that.

Enjoy guys!

Well, hi! I’m just happy to see all of these other introverts on blogs that I love. Now, before I go check out the other posts you’ve listed, I must tell you that I sent myself an email to check out the Game of Thrones series. I’ve been waiting patiently for someone to mention some great series since I finished the Hunger Games books- yaaaaaaaaay!

I hope you like it! It’s definitely a genre series, but something about it is just totally captivated me!
