Hi there, lovelies! It’s a rainy Monday, I’ve just got the worst cold ever, but I’m still trying to survive. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some new stuff on blog this week, but until then I’m going to leave you with the 6th edition of my Weekly Reads, aka the best articles I’ve discovered last week. Enjoy 🙂
1. Quitting Social Media (The Style Guide Blog)
Worth reading because: Sera has a point here. Dropping off social media can seem like a good decision, but eventually you’ll still want to go back. If you ever thought of deleting all your social media accounts, this article is for you. And also if you want to find out why Twitter doesn’t really know how to handle a breakup 🙂
2. The difference between following your dreams and pursuing them (Scarphelia)
Worth reading because: This girl is a great writer, and in this post, she shares her experience of “sacrifice in the name of art”. We all felt at a certain point in our lives that we should just quit work, school and everything, and wait for that endless creativity flow which will eventually lead us to the career of our dreams (as a writer, painter, singer, etc). But real life doesn’t always work this way, so reading this article might make you rethink the whole “follow your dream” mantra.
3. Goodbye comments, hello conversations (Medium)
Worth reading because: If you work in digital marketing or you are a blogger, you know the huge importance that comments have, and the constant efforts in getting people to actually engage with your content. So if you want to discover the latest trends in this direction and how will they affect the comment box as we know it now, you should read this article.
4. Things that mildly irritate people who work in offices (Buzz Feed)
Worth reading because: I’ve never thought I’d actually include a Buzz Feed article here (since we all know the type of content they usually post), but this particular list is so funny, I couldn’t help myself from sharing it. As I know many of you also work in an office, you will totally relate to many (if not all) of these points :))
5. Generation Peter Pan (Apartment Number 4)
Worth reading because: If you’re sick and tired of getting questions like when will you get married, why don’t you have any children, how can you still live with a rent and so on, this article will definitely touch ground for you. People tend to forget that your life doesn’t have to be the same as theirs, and that you have the right to choose your own path, so Victoria gives them a kind reminder in this post 🙂
Which was your favorite article last week?
