Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.
Bad Traffic: How to Get 9,229 Useless Visitors Every Month: It’s all about QUALITY, not quantity, says Ramsay, also known as the Blog Tyrant.

How to Be a Good Guest Blogger: Really smart tips in this post by Cristina Roman about how to be a good guest blogger. I especially love the tip about drafting your post on your own blog first and then copy and pasting the HTML to send to the blogger hosting you for easy formatting.

On Public Relations:
Paula Deen: A Lesson in Crisis Communications: I can always count on Gini Dietrich to provide the best and most useful perspective on any PR crisis and her post on Paula Deen’s situation does not disappoint. My favorite tip from this post is “tell your story before someone else does.” SO smart.
On Social Media:
We Hide Behind 140 Characters: Similar to my post about FOMO this week, the talented Sara Brink writes about living life through a screen and “curating” a life online that appears to be better than what it really might be.
Working Absurd Hours is Not a Badge of Honor: YES. This post is too true. Adam Singer, Google employee and author of the blog, The Future Buzz, explains that working hard at your job does not necessarily mean working 60 hours a week.
This Week on JessicaLawlor.com:

- This week is all about my sister, Jamie! She’s turning 21 on Tuesday and we have quite a week of birthday festivities planned. I planned an epic night out on Thursday and have some surprises up my sleeve. Happy birthday, Jamie!
- Fit in workouts, despite this being an extremely busy week. I went to a yoga class for the first time in two years this week and I’d love to search out some more classes in the area.
