If We Were Having Coffee: How I Became a Lucky Flyer

The amazing thing about the If We Were Having Coffee series format is that it lends itself to both quick updates and deeper stories. This piece by K. Renae P. humorously describes how her luck on planes shifted drastically, all due to karma. It’s a fantastic read, and I highly recommend it.

Ultimate Guide to Setting Up a Freelance Writing Business

I’m not exactly looking to become a freelance writer, but Jennifer Keishin Armstrong’s in-depth look at freelancing as a business gives me both a greater appreciation for writers who can successfully do it as well as some ideas for how to potentially get into this world myself. We so rarely get to see people break down their work habits and finances in so much detail, so this piece indulges our curiosity about others’ lives while also providing tips for best practices in the freelance world. A truly excellent read for anyone interested in writing.

How To Buy in Bulk 

In this post, Kathy Peterman goes through 8 steps of buying in bulk, covering both the how and the why of the process from preparation, grocery shopping, and organizing food at home. Her blog has lots of information about living simply and practicing a minimalistic lifestyle, but this one is definitely one of my favorites because it has a lot of tips I hadn’t considered for buying food in bulk.

An Open Letter to My 13-Year-Old Self

When you read titles like the one above, you expect a mix of poignant life advice, a few inside jokes that you won’t understand, and maybe a throwback picture or two. Mushroomsup (formerly known as MushroomSupRox2DaCore) takes the standard “letter to myself” format and turns it on its head, analyzing her cringe-worthy early adolescent social media habits in a way that is both charming and hilariously true. It’s analysis of human evolution and social media evolution all in one.

12 Things I’m Giving Up Because of the MTA Fare Increase

Mary Lane’s humor makes me giggle fairly often, but she’s really outdone herself on this one. That extra $4.50 a month is not an insignificant amount, especially to New Yorkers trying to stay warm, dry, and otherwise functional members of society.

  1. So, I’m looking through my reader for posts I missed. I see your post banner and think, “Look at Miss Thang getting all fancy.” So, I’m admiring your blog banner and then I see you shared my post. Yay! I’m so glad you liked and shared it. xoxo

    I going to check out the others. I do love some blog love (I haven’t done one in a while. I need to get on it!.)
