Keyboards are smoking around the blogosphere this week.
I don’t know if it’s that people are coming from and going to conferences. Perhaps it’s just that summer is hitting it’s zenith. But the posts coming across my desk are magic.
I could have made this post 10 pages long but I thought y’all would throw undies at the screen.
Instead, we’ll do some fantabulous links today and have Pimp or Promote on Friday here at More Cowbell!
Featured post this week
Roni Loren’s very personal and alarming story – Bloggers Beware: You CAN Get Sued For Using Pics On Your Blog – is a must-read for any who photos on their site. My heart breaks for the time, expense and worry she went through.
Here’s a huge THANK YOU to Roni for sharing her experience.
Techie Tuesday Cool Magic
This post makes my techie heart break into song: 7 Best Gadgets and Accessories for the Working Geek by Shaan Haider.
Anne R. Allen’s weekly post always has great stuff. This one – Social Media vs. New York Times Book Review – Which Sells More Books? – had lots of great information.
Writing and Inspirational Magic
This website has given me TONS of research help: http://www.differencebetween.net/. Whether it’s the difference between words or foods, or even business terms, this place is CrackleSauce!
Renee Schuls-Jacobson shares How My Son Discovered the Opposite Sex – what a sweet nostalgic post this was for me!
Plot: You MUST Be Brutal by Darcy Pattison was a great reminder for me to be even meaner to my characters.
The Bipolar Writer from Keith Cronin at Writer Unboxed had me laughing at Paragraph 1.
Ally Carter’s post — A Letter to Baby Author Me — made me sit down and really think of what I want for my writing. That’s always a great thing. 🙂
Blogs That Made Me Tinkle a Bit
This post and it’s accompanying video made me cry with laughter. It illustrates (in a completely NOT suitable for work way) the dangers of auto-correct on phones. Set down your drink before you listen to this guy sing “auto-correct” in his little accent. LMAO!
My favorite tweet so far this month
