Happy first Friday of 2014, friends! How did you ring in the new year? As predicted, I didn’t make it anywhere close to midnight, but I figure I’ve got 365 days to enjoy the year, so why cram all the fun in one night? As I mentioned in today’s Diary Reading, I’ve really been enjoying the holiday break these last couple weeks and am pumped and energized to get back to our regular posting schedule next week. Any topic in particular that you’d like to see me write about? Just let me know! Also, as I mentioned on Twitter today, I’d love to feature more of your wonderful blogs in the Behind The Blog series, so feel free to email me about that, too, if you’d like to be interviewed and featured on So About What I Said. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend, and here are my favorite finds from the wonderful Web…
