I’ll call this post, Link Love: Social Media edition. I haven’t been around to my favourite blogs and websites recently, as I’ve been putting a lot of “love” in over here with my redesign (what do you think?), so I’m light on the links today, but hope to be back with a full 10 links next week!
This share is a bit late in coming, but I still was drawn to share Sarah Millican’s personal story about how Twitter, and really all social media, can be used to terrible effects on a person thrust into the spotlight.
And rounding off our posts on social media, Laura Tremaine writes about how Facebook posts are the new bumper stickers — and why she won’t be putting one up anytime soon. I wholeheartedly agree; I think updating an indignant status is useless if not accompanied by real action.
This short piece by Sandra Dodd was sent to me by an unschooler and I find it a bit interesting. It argues that by restricting anything (for ourselves or children) we are increasing the intrinsic value that it holds for us.
Ella was featured this past week over at KidsYogaStories doing her attempt at bow pose (she could either keep her head lifted, or touch her ankles, not both at the same time).
Please share your thoughts on these pieces!
