Sunday Link Love is a recurring series of hand-picked digital marketing and entrepreneur lifestyle links from around the web. The links are very, very rarely affiliate links, but if any are, you’ll see an * beside the link. Along with sharing my recent favorites, it’s also a way for me to keep an extra-personal touch to my blog. Social media is great, but my blog is still my home base!
Listening… Is anyone else pumped about the new Emo Project station from SiriusXM? I have no shame in wanting to relive my high school music days.
Exploring… Last weekend I went to a Third Eye Blind concert (my favorite band) in Cleveland and we did a little exploring. This weekend we’re seeing James Taylor in Pittsburgh and likely showing my boyfriend’s family around.
Loving… The entrepreneurs and business ladies I’ve been meeting in Pittsburgh. On Thursday I had a coffee date to talk analytics, and on Monday I posted an interview with two ladies who started a local female entrepreneur group. Take a peek if you missed it!
Reading… Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work (wordy title, I know). A coworker sent this book to me after a long conversation we had about flow states. I’m about 25% of the way through and find it fascinating so far.
For fiction, I recently finished The Serpent King, which is a young adult novel right in line with the others I love (underdog boy, quirky girl, etc.).
