Must Read Link Love. Edition: 8-21-10

Home, Organization, Blogging in 30 Seconds My sweet friend Rachel has an incredible blog about simplicity and is writing an ebook about how she makes time for blogging. Considering she has over 10,000 subscribers and was linked to just this week by Lifehacker, Apartment Therapy and The Nesting Place, I’d say she knows a thing or two about blogging. Read some of her best posts on simplifying and organization here and sign up to be notified as soon as the ebook is ready!

Genius Writing/Humor
The injury list includes my pride
If I could only read one blog, this would probably be it. It’s not an educational blog like the other 99.9% of the blogs I read. It’s just the day to day happenings in the life of a normal suburban Texas mom. But Melanie is an absolutely, ridiculously, amazing writer. She takes normal everyday happenings and makes them hilarious. She can pull out old school, random memories like nobody’s business. You’re welcome.

This post is part of the ever wonderful Mandi’s Saturday stumbles list.
