Sing-It-Out Sunday: Daylight Saving Time Edition
I don’t have strong feelings about daylight saving time either way, except that it’s a bit of a hassle/confusion that I’m not sure we need. But I will note that I managed to spring forward all the clocks in my apartment this morning, except one. Which I turned back an hour. And didn’t notice. For longer than even I care to admit.
Anyway, no matter the time, on with the links!
- On International Women’s Day, Libba Bray shared this letter from “Muggy Hiffenbottom, President of Delta Sigma Tau.” In related news, Libba Bray is a goddess.
- The FCC is taking steps to reduce the digital divide by updating its Lifeline program to better align with modern expectations of communications (read: Internet) accessibility
- From author Sarah McClean, an awesome list of 100 romance recommendations. If you’ve ever thought romance novels weren’t for you, just take a glance at that list, and I bet you’ll find something!
- I usually dislike articles telling you the importance of networking and how to network (since they usually seem to be written by people to whom networking comes naturally), but this one on reaching out to one person each weekday appears to be actually helpful for those of us who struggle. In particular, I like the author’s point that, by sending on “RO” (reach-out) each day, “it stops me from getting too hung up on one person’s response. If someone doesn’t write back, that’s okay because I sent four more emails that week.”
- I have had quite the plethora of diaries/journals/notebooks/etc throughout the years, but have never been able to make one method quite stick. But Karen Walrond’s journaling tips might just tip that balance from every-so-often to everyday.
- Amazon tries to crack down on scammers, but hits authors instead – a chorus that’s becoming far too regularly sung.
- Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, died recently, and her estate’s first step is to stop publication on the mass market edition of that book – which happens to be the most popular edition used by schools. Shame on them.
- Meet Ken Liu: novelist, short story writer, translator, intellectual property litigation consultant, and father. Makes you wonder what you’re doing with your time, no?
