A Plethora of “Naked” Links To Rock Your World

30 Rock - Naked Writers via AOLTV.com

Last Friday, I did a guest post about “getting naked” on your blog. Yep, I talked about just stripping it all off and hanging your naked passion out for the world.

There’s magic in being authentic.

All month long, whenever I get intrigued or mesmerized by the magic of a post, I add it to a draft post called Links That Rock My World. When the list gets big, I share it with all of you!

Without further ado, here’s all the magic I’ve jotted down for you since the beginning of the year. Note: If you’ve seen me commenting on your blog, I already think you’re magic. I’m looking to introduce you to some new fun places. 🙂

I’ll start by taking a page out of Gene Lempp’s book with a Featured Posts area.

I love a great mashup as much as the next writer. That being said, there are two that I try never to miss each week: Gene Lempp’s Saturday Blog Treasures and Elizabeth Craig’s Sunday Twitterific. You cannot go wrong spending your weekends with these two!

    I’ve got to save this one. So many links, so little time. Going to check out Icarus and My Fear of the Sun. Mama told me not to look at the sun, but that’s where the fun is.


  2. Laura Drake says:

    Any mash-up where I send one link to a group I belong to work (Pinterest marketing) and save one for my files (Making your website ‘sticky’) is a SUPER one!

    Thanks, Jenny!


  3. Hart says:

    Ha! Great stuff! I have been naked a good long time and spend a lot of effort getting others to do the same. And your links look like great stuff!

    The ones I’ve read lately that I’ve given the most thought to over the past month or so are:
    Kristen Lamb’s Bracing for Impact: The Future of Big Publishing in the New Paradigm (http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/bracing-for-impact-the-future-of-big-publishing-in-the-new-paradigm/). This really made me think about where book publishing is going and where it should go.
    Nicole Basaraba’s Writing in Different Genres series (http://universecityblog.wordpress.com/2012/01/25/writing-in-different-genres-a-blog-series/). She has invited various writers to blog about their particular area.
    Great stuff, Jenny! Thanks.


  5. I don’t have time to visit all those great links right now, but I am bookmarking this post for my leisurely evening reading. Awesome resource 😉


  6. K.B. Owen says:

    Wow, Jenny! What a great list! And thanks so much for putting mine in there, too, LOL. I loved Roni’s “sticky” blog post when she first wrote it – I’ve got it bookmarked to try some of the tips when I have time.

    Oh, and another great place for a laugh is ironicmom.com – Leanne is always super-funny!


  7. Gene Lempp says:

    Woot, awesome list, Jen! Thanks much for the linkage 🙂


  8. Wasn’t that story at the Blogess just the most hilarious? I kind of want to hang out with her now, but I’m afraid she’ll get us arrested. Well, that might not be so bad since we’d be laughing our butts off the whole time.

    Yikes, I’ve got five new windows open for posts I need to read… I’m supposed to be editing!


  9. Great links, Jenny. Thanks for giving me some fun things to read tonight. 🙂


  10. Susan Spann says:

    Thanks for the link! This is a fantastic list and I’m flattered to be a part of it!


  11. What a fantastic compilation, Jenny. Thanks so much for including the BOAW fest and for taking note of your faves on our behalf!

    I totally agree with you about Gene’s fab weekly mashups. I’ll have to check out Elizabeth Craig’s, too. 🙂


  12. Thank you for the super wonderful awesome mash-up! There’s so much to read, I don’t know where to start! Gracias..:)


  13. Awesome list Jenny! Thanks 🙂 Can’t wait to check ’em out!


  14. With a list like this how can there possibly be any time to comment??? THANKS!


  15. Roni Loren says:

    Thanks for including me in the mashup! And the metal chicken story still makes me laugh. That would be a move my husband would pull.


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      OMG, your husband sounds like a riot, Roni! I laugh every time I see the Beyonce Chicken story and also her post where she asks her hubby to “smell her eyeballs.” The Bloggess kills me.


      • Roni Loren says:

        My hubs was driving me crazy a while back singing an old 80s hair band song (Don’t Treat Me Bad). It wouldn’t get out of my head so I threatened his life to get him to stop singing it. Two days later, I’m in the kitchen and all of a sudden I hear that song playing. I had no idea where it was coming from and it was on a loop. I searched high and low and finally found hubs laptop tucked in the back of a bottom cabinet, with the damn song cued up on repeat. He’s lucky I didn’t stick his laptop in the oven. 🙂


        • Jenny Hansen says:

          I read this to my husband and he LOVED it. I can’t believe your honey can carry a practical joke that far. He’s got the stuff, Roni!

          p.s. You’d have hated the smell of a burned laptop – it’s a good thing you restrained yourself!


  16. Will continue the hunt for great gluten-free fare. Have you cosidered rice noodles. Toss them in hot oil and they fluff up. It’s quite a show and, you can put them under stir-fried veggies.


  17. GREAT list, Jenny! And I noticed that Tom Wisk sent you a great idea as well. He left me a tasty steak recipe in my comments Friday (my post about my birthday dinner celebrations). I like his style…


  18. Thanks for including the guest post on Icarus I did for Jess O’Neal!

    I absolutely loved Kristen’s post on making peace with her thunder thighs.


  19. What a wonderful list of posts, Jenny. I found new jewels for my bookmarks.

    As for new links, this one made me to smile:

    And for something more serious:
    [if you don’t have time to read it right now: the gist is that to be more productive, focus on only one kind of tasks on one day, like blog posting]
