October 9 #LinkYourLife Roundup

It’s been far too long since I put together a #LinkYourLife roundup. This one is going to be double the fun because you will be linked to The Honeyed Quill and On the Verge. Shareen has become my #LinkYourLife partner, and she’s really good at it. How many of you shared on Friday because she reached out to you? Go ahead, raise your hands.

Yep, that’s what I thought.


Now, not every link is shared in this roundup. I snatched as many as I could, but #LinkYourLife has grown considerably since I started it earlier this year. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Week, I favored those that gracefully address mental illness, but I also sprinkled in some lighter pieces. I hope you’ll read them all.

For those of you who don’t see your post here or couldn’t/didn’t connect on Friday, PLEASE LINK YOUR STORIES IN COMMENTS. You belong here. We want you here. Join us!

Okay. The roundup:
