It’s the end of the blogging week around here, and that means time for one of my favorite posts to write – Friday Favorites, where I tell you all the things and links I’ve been loving this week!
// The fact that I’m finally able to join (what seems like) the rest of blogland in using Plugins, now that I have WordPress. If it’s a switch you’re considering making, I 110% suggest hiring Lisette to do it for you. There is no way I could have made this transfer by myself without losing basically my entire blog in the process, and Lisette was amazing to work with. And speaking of Plugins…what are some of your favorites?
//I absolutely LOVED this post Whitney wrote on the type of friend she wants to be. These are all qualities I’d hope that my friends could say I have, and which I look for in my friends.
// This really important reminder from Katie. It’s so easy in blogging to get wrapped up in the success your favorite bloggers seem to be experiencing, especially if one of those bloggers is someone who started at the same time as you and seems to have SO many more followers. But this isn’t a competition, and another blogger’s success is not your failure – instead, it is a chance to congratulate a friend who is doing great, and to set goals for yourself and your blog.
// Pumpkin spice hot chocolate. I know you’re all probably so sick of hearing about pumpkin spice lattes, but that’s why I’m not bringing those up (well, that and I don’t drink coffee). A couple of weeks ago, my roommate told me I could have the barista at Starbucks put pumpkin spice into whatever drink I wanted. Cue my new love affair with pumpkin spice hot chocolate.
// Today is my last day at my current (part-time) job, which means that starting Monday I’ll be working full-time in the city! This is something I’ve held off on sharing, because I didn’t want to talk about it online too much before I was finished with my current job. I was so lucky to find a job that I loved right out of college, but unfortunately it was only part-time, and once I stopped waitressing about a month ago I knew it was time to find something with more hours. I couldn’t be more excited about this new position – everyone I’ve met is so nice, and it’s a career (paralegal work) I’m really excited to be getting into! Wish me luck?
So what about you? What are your Friday Favorites this week?
