Sunday Coffee Reads: Week #4

3 Feb

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 for a little Sunday morning link fest, so you have something to read with your coffee too…


This week’s Catherine Drinking Coffee Pic is brought to you by the complimentary caffeine in the lobby of the W Hotel in New Orleans, Fat Tuesday morning 2008. And so, onto the tweets!

This week on this blog I opened the floor up to self-publishing questions, hosted an inspirational post from Shannon of Duolit Self-Publishing Team and after MUCH consideration, picked my Top 100 favorite movies.

And then remembered Top Gun.

And A Few Good Men.

And Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion…

In other news, this was my favorite tweet of the week:

(You can buy it online here and they even have international delivery. TOTALLY BUYING ONE. May I also recommend that you don’t spent too much time on that site because they have way to much amazing stuff.)

Until next week…

    Can I ask, as a fellow Irish blogger, do you find blogging first thing in the morning, or in the evening brings more traffic to your blog?

    Excellent warning to be giving on that store. There are TWO of them in my town in Aus and every time I am in there it takes every ounce of restraint I have to not spend ALL my money lol. Glad you liked it! :)

    You do a wonderful job with your summary. I always appreciate your input. However adding that bit about that store was a killer…to my pocket book….you rock anyway.

    I’m going to follow you. Im new to the blog business, but I’ll follow fellow writers and readers that I think are cute and interesting. And you are. I like your style.

    Have you ever used a marketing service to promote your self-published books? Is this type service something you would recommend?

    • catherineryanhoward February 4, 2013 at 17:25 #

      No and no. I don’t think anyone can promote a (self-published) book like the author can.

Ah, go on. Tell me what you think...
