Link It Up: Must Read Posts on 7.6.2012

Another Friday means it’s time for another Link It Up – don’t forget to leave your favorite links from the week in the comments, even if they’re your own!


Tomorrow I’m running the 2nd annual Run for the Pierogies with PIP Aunt Kathy and my 5K partner-in-crime Amanda. This race is slowly becoming the HOTTEST 5K in Northeast Ohio. 80 degrees by the 8:30AM start time? Pass me the water… is providing some seasonal inspiration with their 100 Super Summer things to do in Northeast Ohio. #81 & #83 have Smitten in Cleveland written all over them…

A big congrats to Honey Hut taking the championship in’s ice cream playoffs! I think I’ll celebrate with some honey pecan…


Cleveland bloggers: don’t forget about our Ohio Blogging Association meet up at PlayhouseSquare on Wednesday, July 11th at 6:00PM! RSVP over at the Facebook event page by Monday the 9th – we’re limited to only 25 participants!

How To Stay Disciplined With Your Blogging has some fun tips to keep you writing. I don’t know which is my favorite: creating an editorial calendar or rewarding yourself with a chocolate bar after every post written!

Snark: Does It Help or Hurt Bloggers? Does it hurt your productivity?


As a supporter of the Arthritis Foundation, I was excited to see Teachasana’s A Yogi To The Bone. Sure your physical asana practice has benefits to your bones, but even a regular pranayama breathing practice helps to maintain your bone density!

Creating Space for Exploring the Present—An Interview with Judith Hanson Lasater: I love the way this woman thinks. Another must read for yoga teachers and yoga students alike.

And a song that will end up on one of my class playlists: Pentatonix (from NBC’s The Sing Off ) sing Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To KnowThis has hip openers written all over it. #shityogissay


This arrived the evening of my birthday from Striking Truths:

Also, this quote from When It Feels Too Hard To Keep Trying: Rest or Try Harder? via Tiny Buddha hit me hard this week: “Change occurs when enough stress is applied to alter the form of something and set a new trajectory.”

And finally, my birthday horoscope was DEAD ON, and interestingly included this gem: “Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.”

Another birthday = a chance at a happy new year. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.

Word hard, play hard, and keep livin’ the dream, kids.

    Your “Link It Up” posts have quickly become my new favorite. I always learn something new and click on at least 3 links. Pentatonix might just be the only thing that could make me happy about Frog & Pigeon openers. (shhh don’t tell)

      I’ve been to Doc’s about as many times as Honey Hut! It was the closest ice cream shop to my elementary school and on very special occasions, my mom would stop there after she picked us up from school. It’s been awhile, so perhaps I need to swing by again…
