As I said in my Plans and Goals and Stuff post, Sunday mornings is when I read my way through all the interesting tidbits I’ve come upon during the week: tweets I’ve marked as favorite, Google Reader posts I’ve starred and articles I’ve mailed myself links to while waiting out an ad break. Then I add the ones I think everyone else might find interesting to Buffer, so they get tweeted during the week. (Note: I tweet what I think is interesting, not necessarily what I agree with.) But I thought that this year, I would pick the cream of the crop of a little Sunday morning link fest, so you have something to read with your coffee too. Here goes…

And a blog post that has nothing to do with writing and is really only one for the ladies, but it’s, like, the best thing I read online this week:
In other news, Catherine, Caffeinated is on two very starry “must read” blog lists this week. I tell you this not to gloat, but because one of the lists has 27 other blogs on it, and the other has 99 . So if you’re lacking for worthy blog-reading material, these lists are a good place to start. Thanks to LiveHacked.com for putting this pink blog on their Power 100 List, and to Proactive Writer for including it on their 28 Blogs Every Writer Should Read.
Also, The Book Designer has his monthly E-book Cover Design Awards last week. As ever, the fact that all entries get posted on the site makes for interesting reading/viewing—it’s a great snapshot of both the amazing work self-publishers are doing, and the absolute eye-offending horror others think passes for a book cover. (Really. Sometimes, entries make my cheeks blush in sympathy-shame. YIKES.) See the post here.
Until next week…
