Mid Week Distraction No. 7

Mid Week Distraction No.7

“I like to start my notes to you as if we’re already in the middle of a conversation. I pretend that we’re the oldest and dearest friends – as opposed to what we actually are, people who don’t know each other’s names and met in an “Over 30″ chat room where we both claimed we’d never been before. What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go on line, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you.”

jees guys i’ve gotta tell you, Mid Week Distraction has pushed my internet combing to another level. i have a whole new respect for people who work for BuzzFeed and other mega online publications – where do they find the TIME to compile so many juicy lists? i mean, obviously they get paid for it (here’s hoping) but seriously, respect.

if you check in around here on your browser you might have noticed a Shop link in the top menu. since i can’t do a million Nice Things posts i thought i would occasionally update my virtual wishlist, making it easy for you to browse and shop – if you like! it’s also a super handy way for me to tell my husband about gift ideas. hint, hint.

Mid Week Distraction No. 5

some days, nay, weeks are hard to get through – and i feel like this one is a particular slog. i think it might be because it dawned on me this morning that it’s basically a month till Christmas. so if you are in the same boat then perhaps some of these distractions will help.

Mid Week Distraction No.4

guys. this feels weird to admit, but, i’ve been listening to 1989 a LOT. this coming from someone who never really knew what Taylor Swift was all about until this year – when i started seeing her pop up all over MY internets. of course she has been a mega star forever, but she never infiltrated my own happy internet bubble… until now. you only need to read How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the T.Swift to understand.

Lately

Miss Moss // Lately

so if you’re checking into the site itself and not reading via bloglovin or rss (or some other fancy way i don’t know about!) then you’ll notice things look a bit different around here! i have been wanting to change the look of the blog for a long time, as i feel like it’s been stuck in the same layout / rut for a good few years. mostly i was concerned with readability and page loads, as the blog is so incredibly image heavy it can be quite a strain on your browser.

Mid Week Distraction No.3

QUESTION * how do you guys consume your online content these days? i’m still a faithful RSS subscriber, even after Google Reader crashed and burned into the internet blackhole last year (i’ve been using Feedly ever since). i was having this conversation with a friend last night, who visits individual sites in his bookmarks – now that’s dedication.

i come across a lot of things during my week that don’t necessarily fit into the category of These Things or Nice Things, but that i usually tweet about or just email to my friends. that’s one of the main ways that i, too, discover interesting and/or enjoyably distracting things online – especially from geniuses such as Jessica, whose READ LOOK THINK posts i always look forward to, and Of A Kind’s 10 Things We’re Doing newsletter which is just excellent.
