Sweet Shit Saturday #040 (40th Birthday Edition!)

Sweet Shit Saturday Birthday

This is my blog. Ain't she purrty?

Sweet Shit Saturday turns 40 today! I don’t feel like she’s in a mid-life crisis at all though. Do women have mid-life crises? Or do women have mid-wife crises? Why is Sweet Shit Saturday a woman? How many questions can I pose before you delete me from your feedreader? How much do I love black beans?

Speaking of black beans. (I’m good at segues.) As I was eating some a few days ago I thought to myself “It would probably be a good idea to export a barrel of these to Poland for when you visit later this year since they’re so difficult to find and last time you craved nothing but black beans and then bought every single black bean in the city when you finally found them.” (Pretend that wasn’t a run-on sentence.) This is what happens when you leave me with my thoughts. Actually, that’s not true. Usually I think really smart, profound, and funny things. I just don’t like to brag … ;)

Is Your Low Social IQ Dooming Your Blog by Jennifer Gresham

I met Jennifer at BlogWorld last year. She rocks. As is proof by this article she wrote for CopyBlogger and all the wonderful words she writes at Everyday Bright.

The Other Eight Hours by Joel Runyon

This is a short article that will blow away any “I don’t have enough time” excuse you’ve ever had. BTW, if you’ll be at World Domination Summit in June, Joel is putting together a sky-diving adventure. I may or may not join in. (I’ve already jumped out of a plane.) I have my own adventure planned, tentatively titled “Eat at every vegan restaurant in Portland in 12 hours.” We’ll see how that works out.

The Importance of Experimentation Over Blind Faith by Benny Lewis

You probably already know that I think Benny is awesome. What you don’t know is that, of all the writing he has produced in the past, this is my favorite. Now you know. Nope, not gonna say “and knowing is half the battle.” What do you think? I grew up on GI Joe or something?

To The Partner of a Dreamer (A Short Story) by Kenny Eller

Simply put: I love this. Maybe I’m biased because I’ve known Kenny and his wife (before she was his wife) for about 5 years. But even with my bias, I love this. :)
