Who Won the Internet
Here’s what I’ve run into on the internet these days…
Swimsuits for All – This site’s IG caught my eye when a plus-size fashion influencer (whom I’ve followed for 8+ years) put on a swimsuit and IG’d it. I couldn’t find the Gabi Fresh pieces in my sizes but I did pick up a two-piece with a mid brief on sale! Win-win!
Cents of Style – Caprice V-neck dress – I got this on sale for about $24. Sign up for their updates and order this easy breezy dress (with pockets!!) when it is back in stock. (Get 40% off now on maxi dresses with the code: SUMMER40.)
The whole thing about GDPR has uncovered a ton of emails and newsletters that I subscribed to over 10 years ago. Thanks, GDPR. I have now unsubscribed to all of them.
Are you African-American, Black, Asian, Native Hawaiian, or other Pacific Islander, and did you buy a Toyota between January 2011 – August 1, 2016? You may want to check up on this. Get yo money.
I like this article about making sure people give a damn about you and your business. Keep reading to see the example site she lists. I laughed.
I really enjoyed John Wick and John Wick 2. Since we all have to wait for John Wick 3 to be filmed, Hotel Artemis will have to do.
Speaking of Keanu, he was just cast with Ali Wong and Russel Park. Now, we need movies with Leonardo Nam, Lewis Tan, DANIEL FREAKING HENNEY.
Friends and community articles:
AJ sent a birth announcement for her puppy. I endorse this. Follow her IG for more puppy cuteness!
Eli held his second annual Trail Foods Taste-Off. This article is about the treats. I mean, you can’t eat almonds for 20 days straight on the trail. Live a little. (And yes, he listed PACKABLE MARGARITAS.)
Thien-Kim educates y’all on how to clean your sexy toys. Did you know lube expires? <insert comment about using lube before it expires here>
On a personal note: I took a break from writing and blogging because I needed to focus on other things. I was burned out. I worked 7 days a week for six months. Six! Can you believe I let this shit get that bad? Let’s not go into how my dayjob basically took away all my kid’s time with me – and that I won’t get that time back. It makes me angry.
In the beginning of the year, I prioritized my goals for 2018 and this blog (and my other sites) dropped off my Top 3. I missed being able to share educational, informational or entertaining bits that I run into. I miss affiliate marketing, too, and creating niche sites. So here I am again. Hello.
On a blog note: I’m debating on whether to turn off comments for good. Have you considered turning comments off on your site?
