Start Your Week Right Sunday: Links and Goals

Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.

Links

On Blogging:

RIP Google Reader: There Are Other Options For You: The big blogging/social media news this week was that Google announced they are eliminating Google Reader as of July 1, 2013. Gini Dietrich of Spin Sucks explains why and highlights a few RSS alternatives. (PS- Stay tuned…tomorrow I’ll be publishing a detailed post about how to use Feedly, one of the popular RSS services emerging after the Google Reader announcement).

How To Get More Content For Your Blog: If you’re struggling to find interesting topics to blog about, check out this awesome post by Kristi Hines for ProBlogger with detailed ideas for developing more content for your blog.

On Careers:

How To Take Advantage of Every Opportunity In Your Job Search: Putting The Odds Ever In Your Favor: Adam Britten explains the six moments internship and job seekers need to pay attention to during their search. Love the Hunger Games references!

On PR:

15 Changes I’ve Seen In 15 Years: One of my mentors Anne Buchanan, owner of Buchanan PR, recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of her successful PR firm. In this useful post, she outlines changes she’s seen in the public relations industry over the years.

On Launching a Digital Product:

How I Published and Launched My Latest Ebook for Under $150: Dana Sitar, the fabulous blogger behind DIY Writing, breaks down exactly how she published and launched her ebook “A Writer’s Bucket List” with an investment of just $150.

On Writing:

How To Organize The Writing Samples On Your Writer Website: Do you have lots of great writing samples, but are not sure how to organize them in your online portfolio? Bree Brouwer breaks down your options in this guest post for The Renegade Writer.

Why Jessica Lawlor Gave Up Her Dream Of Writing a Novel (For Now): I’m over on Dana Sitar’s blog DIY writing explaining why I’m putting my dream of writing a novel on hold and why it’s okay for you to put your dreams aside, too.

Just For Fun:

Life Before and After Cellphones: I literally laughed out loud at this silly Mashable comic strip (by Angela Liao) outlining life before and after cellphones.

Goals

  • Finally, finally, finally sit down and develop my Broad Street Run training plan. The race is officially less than two months away, and I haven’t started seriously training yet. If I want to PR the race this year, I need to get to work this week.
  • Get my inbox under control. Between the event I planned for work in February, family issues taking the forefront and being away in Punta Cana, I need to spend time cleaning up my inbox.
  • Write my next few freelance articles for Brazen Careerist.
