As the month of July marches forward it’s time to take a look at my favorite posts from June 2013.
This month is an interesting collection of favorite blogs, friends from Blogworld 2012 and some new finds I have discovered through Pinterest. Speaking of which I have finally joined and yes it is as addictive as everyone says!
You can follow me on Pinterest here.
As usual my picks are broken down into my three core themes.
So let’s get cracking!
I am just loving Alexandra’s work at the moment.
I think I need to read this particular post several times. One of my good friends recently told me I should embrace my quirkyness. While I am more than happy to do that I like the sound of eloquent and witty as well!
As a blogger I am always looking for ways to improve my blog titles. I’m the first to admit that some of my early titles were total shockers which gave no indication as to what the blog post was about.
While there are a lot of posts on this topic, I particularly enjoyed this one.
This post by Craig resonated with me at the moment because I am desperately trying to finish my first ebook and life (that would be me) keeps getting in the way. Time to fix that. Loving this post!
This post by Ali Luke helps deal with our dreaded inner critic and puts it to work for good and not evil.
My lovely friend Anne-Sophie writes an amazing blog helping women to make peace with food and their bodies. Anne-Sophie is positively changing the way women feel about and treat their bodies.
Since we have been talking about self love here on the blog lately, I was attracted to her piece on mistakes newbies make when it comes to body love.
All of us can relate to this post from Benny over at Get Busy Living. Let’s face it the easy choice is sooooo tempting because it is so damn easy!
It’s when we decide to do what’s right that our lives dramatically start to change. Remember the right choice isn’t always the boring, dull one either.
For all the budding entrepreneurs out there, here is a great post by the always inspirational Natalie Sisson.
Reading that headline you might think this whole goal setting subject has been done to death. Despite how much this topic gets talked about so many of us (including me) aren’t setting goals in a way that will make it possible for us to achieve exactly what we want.
I realized as I was reading this post that I haven’t been writing my goals done, which as Michael mentions is a critical step.
The Identity – Breaking the Biz Rules – You Need a Fancy Job Title
This blog by Lis Dingjan is only six months old but already brimming with interesting content.
I really like the message in this post probably because I’ve seen plenty of corporate types with inflated egos and fancy titles who weren’t all that good at their jobs. I’m also a big fan of some of the creative titles featured in this post.
I’m looking forward to reading more of Lis’s work.
Ms Morphosis – 10 of the Most Memorable Places You Have to Visit in Europe
I had to throw in this great travel post (who doesn’t love them!) by my friend Jen who recently had an amazing six week trip around Europe with her wonderful partner. This trip was made even more special by the fact that they are now engaged!
Congratulations Jen I am super excited for both you and Chase.
I thought this was a powerful and inspiring story about one woman’s courage and tenacity. A great read by Candace Doby. I know you will be cheering for her at the end.
This one is more about growing your blog or brand than personal development but I couldn’t resist it. I find the psychology of color quite fascinating. I have to admit I didn’t really think about the impact of color before I started my blog, I just knew that I liked blue.
I hope you enjoyed this month’s selection. Lots of goodies to pick from.
If you enjoyed this post, please share it with your friends and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest. Lots of amazing pictures and blog posts await…
