Fill-Me-In Friday


Howdy, y'all! : ) I feel like I haven't talked to you guys all week with all the awesome guest posts. Hope you enjoyed them.
All right, now it's time for the weekly links round up where I fill you in on what you may have missed and you can feel free to fill me in via the comments on your favorite post of the week. 
A few of you have asked me how I find the posts that I put up here--i.e. when do I find time to go through my google reader when we all are suffering from blog overload. Well, to be honest, it's as simple as this--I pretty much only read blogs these days that I see links to via Twitter
I rarely have time to go through my reader lately, so I'm left with "bright, shiny link" method. Meaning, as I see post titles pop up on Twitter, I go--ooh, that sounds cool, and click over. Then when I come across ones that I want to share with you guys I use my Feedly toolbar to click "save for later". Then at the end of the week, I have this nice page I can go to that has a list of all the ones I've saved. If you're not using Feedly, I highly recommend it.

Anyway, on to the links!

On the Author Blog:


So those are some of my favorites of the week, what were some of yours? And how do you decide which blogs to read? Do you use a reader, email subscriptions, bright-and-shiny Twitter method? I'm curious to know.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
