Links I Love

(Image from The Graphics Fairy's site)

Today's topic for the Write Tribe's week long blogging challenge is to make a list of favourite links to share. My main challenge for this is that I like so many sites, it's hard to pick only a few. I narrowed it down by deciding on ones that inspire me and help me with my creative projects.

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t just spring out of bed all happy, confident and positive.  Some days I need lots of coffee and inspiration to get going for the day.

Every day I like to look at posts from inspirational and writing sites. The inspirational sites get me into a positive mindset for the day while the writing sites help inspire me, overcome procrastination and give me ideas.

Of course there is always the danger, I’ll just surf and not get that writing done. There are just too many interesting sites out there. Guess I’ll have to find a site about not procrastinating. I’m sure there is one. I’ll have to Google it....later.

Here are some links to a few newsletters that I subscribe to:



I just love the morning posters on Queen of Your Own Life’s Facebook Page done by Cindy and Kathy. Each image depicts a vintage photo of a woman and some piece of wisdom to start us off the day in a positive mindset. Their main focus is loving yourself, having gratitude and living a life of joy. Who can’t use more of that, right?



I found out about Karen Watson, the graphics fairy through Queen of Your Own Life. Karen posts the loveliest vintage images for free download. I just love the images as I am a big fan of vintage graphics. I like to use the images on Facebook or to make handmade cards. They brighten up my day and hopefully brighten others' days, too.

Jonathan Lockwood Huie’s quotes are always uplifting and thought-provoking. Even if I don’t use them to create a motivational poster, the quotes always give me something to think about.

Positive Writer’s Bryan Hutchison writes about the fears and doubts that plague writers and he offers suggestions on how to work through them to get that writing done. I appreciate his honesty and willingness to help other writers. Right now he is offering his book "Writer's Doubt" for free on Amazon in exchange for a review and then there will be a contest later on. Definitely worth checking out.



I am writing this post about links on the fourth day of the week-long Write Tribe Blogging Festival.
