Instead of pet peeves, we should start appreciating pet faves.

Michelle shares useful tips on how to become a better writer.

This endometriosis photography series by Georgie Wileman is heartbreaking and powerful.

I love Sophie’s post on the importance of getting out of your comfort zone.  Likewise, this post shares tips on how to get out of that comfort zone.

I’ve really been enjoying Jon Ronson’s audio series, The Last Days of August, a follow on from The Butterfly Effect which explored the consequences that free porn has had on society. It’s on Amazon’s audible which offers a 30-day free trial!

Ghenet’s post about Living as an African American Woman in the UK was really interesting to read and taught me a lot about a subject I have no first-hand experience of.

I *really* needed to read this post by Helen from A Bookish Baker. To all those bloggers who don’t want to make money, don’t want to have your own niche or brand – this is a must read!
