I was taught in journalism school that great writers are great readers. I’ve pulled together weekend links to fill your minds with inspiration and ideas.
If we want to write, we need to read a wide range of styles and topics and authors. And so I give you my favourite links gleaned from the web this week. There’s a little inspiration, a little fun, and a few deep thoughts (and also my own byline!)
Weekend links: fill up with fun, inspiring and thoughtful ideas
That time I found my byline:
Ready to learn leadership and life skills? Call the Doctor! (Learning Resources Blog)
I’ve been told over the years to write what I know. This is what I know: raising kids is a wild and crazy adventure; kids love playing and make-believe; kids love playing with mom and dad. It’s really fun to include my kids in my work and write about what I know! Here we are on the Learning Resources blog this week learning leadership and life skills with a Doctor Kit.

An organized checklist to make the most of the holiday shopping season.

Uber + Nasa = flying cars? (Fast Company)
I’m interested in any tech advances that bring Back to the Future to my real life.
Yasssss! This makes so much sense. I am a true Xennial, apparently. Favourite quote:
“We didn’t know what a selfie was. When we took a million close-up photos with our friends, we had to point the camera at our faces, from arm’s length, and hope for the best. We wouldn’t discover that half of them were blurry and half of them were just pictures of our foreheads until two weeks later. And by a million photos, I mean 24, because that’s how many photos you could take on the average roll of film.”
