Link Love!

This is my first “Link Love” post, but so many things that are being written have struck a cord in me, made me reflect on how I’m living my life,  have made me more aware of what I’m doing and why I’m doing it, or are opportunities I simply want to share. So, when you have time, go check out the following posts:

Close friends have both been talking about the importance of honesty in the writing of a good blog. That’s something I avoid like the plague ’round these parts, instead sharing inane lists of how many miles I plan to run in a month or what financial goals I’m patting myself on the back for lately. Today I will put my pride aside because this needs to be said, even if I’m the only one hearing it.NeverNiche

There once was a gal from Tennessee
Who was in so much CC debt she could barely breathe
She created a budget
And paid off that nugget
Now she’s ballin’ like Buffet

So, I think tragically, fat people hide.  Not because they want to, but because they don’t want to be publicly humiliated.  So they don’t run for city council, they don’t take that class, they don’t go to the gym, they don’t go for their Ph.D to become a professor, they turn down that opportunity to speak at a local organization.  Not because they don’t want to do these things, but because they fear the junior high school teasing that can come along with it.Ragen at Dances with Fat

Here are the details: each month, a point person will choose a book and host the book club on their blog for that month. The point person will be responsible for getting the discussion going by posting a review, and hopefully a few questions for everyone to ponder. The point is to get talking to one another, to meet new PFers, and to get to know old PFers better.Deena at DeenaDollars
