Places You Should Visit

This is rare post for me. Usually I pick a topic and write a post that is informative and relevant. Maybe it doesn’t always work out that way, but that’s my intent. This week I am switching it up a bit. I have pulled together a list of a few blogs that I think the readers here (you!) may like. Some of them are big names and some are still growing their audience. All are on my reading list.

One Woman’s Eye – Written by my friend Joanne Tombrakos, this blog explores life after Corporate America.

Baby Bummers – This is a humorous cartoon blog, written by my friend Devon Wickens.

Ordinary Courage (by Brene Brown) – I heard Brene speak at a BlogHer conference recently, and have been mesmerized by her words ever since. I think Brene's book, The Gifts of Imperfection, is a must read for every human being. (If you don't identify with the human species you can pass.)

9 Ways by Gloria Feldt – A strong advocate for women, Gloria Feldt writes about work, life, and politics.

Enjoy them, and let me know what you think!

Hi Colette! I've come from Karen's BBQ. Wanted to come visit you and see your blog. Your new cookbook sounds interesting! Browsed some of your recent posts. I'm an aisle seater, too, btw. :) Used to love the window and then developed a sense of claustrophobia when I flew and that window seat was just too snug for me. ha.

So great to meet you...I'll be back to visit again! :)
