Birdy’s Picks

A couple of posts on the perils of settling in life:

  • The Fifty-Per-Cent Solution by Chris A.

And some things to do about it:

My own picks for the more business side of things:


Jonathan of ByBloggers is offering an outstanding e-book on e-book creation, “Epic E-book Creation”. If you haven’t yet picked up your copy, I strongly urge you to do so. Good stuff!

Christy Smith of ThinkBlot Communciations is holding a contest over at her blog. Prize is a beautiful Sucessories print and the satisfaction of having helped to spread the word about a lovely & talented person.


  • Jeanine Byers Hoag
    I love “believer in the beauty of becoming!”
  • Chris Guillebeau
    Good night, everyone. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” -Dr Seuss

And that’s it for this week. Until next time!

Chirp, chirp! :>
