The Saturday Salute 07.11.09

Ah, hello Saturday, and all the pleasures you bring... I'm in a good mood, can you tell? Who knows why, it's just swept me up like a shimmering wave and I'm happily riding atop it. In fact, I'd wager I'm even happier than this kid:

Okay, perhaps not.

Here's the thing: I know a lot of you really dig the Salute ('cos you dun'told me so!) so how about helping make it better? It's all well and good me posting my happy links (and I shall continue to do so) but I want to hear from you, mysterious maidens of the web.

What are
you finding out there that we should all know about??

I'd hazard a guess that about 99.9% of you have your own blog - what are you posting this week? And I'd warrant that 100% of you religiously follow a whole wealth of other blogs - what have they posted this week?

There are two ways to get involved:

1. Comment. Tell us all what you're enthusiastically saluting.

2. Email me your links. I love you all. I'm actually in love with you. And what happens when one gets an email from their love interest? They pretty nearly wet themselves with excitement, that's what. So do it, I'm on my knees to you. Why? Boost your traffic / poach my readers / make BFF with me / be a member of my imaginary International Charade Brigade. It's all good news, really.


There, I wrote it in capitals, with hearts, so you have no excuses.

But enough of that mad rant! Here's a slice of my Internet life this week:

♥ If Rik Lee sketched a picture of me, I might never recover. My life would definitely peak at that point.

♥ Talk about Kitsch.

♥ Talk about Kitsch... again.

♥ All of these crafty 12 projects at It's a Creative World are Love that pumpkin mini-book!

♥ Further Ado is "a blog about living well and pursuing passions, with segues into culture, fashion, lifestyle, literature and travel." Plus, she loves Drew Barrymore. Come and write for Charade, please?

Now, leave me a virtual kiss in the form of a comment, and then continue to lovingly live up your weekend.

All the inspiration I'm gathering is used on creating my daily inspiration post over at my blog. But you should really check out my blogroll, I love the ones I have there and check them every day!

And can I make a request? How about a post on how to deal with exam stress and still maintaining a decent life both socially rl and online?

Hello! I really enjoy a lot of the links you post. This week I've been posting about Markus Lupfer's clothing: and the Danish concept of Hygge (links included on the post!)

I often find with the huge wealth of blogs and read and interesting things posted on the interent, narrowing down my links posts to just the really good stuff I want to pass on is so tough!
