Here is this week’s list of essays, short stories, and other links from my favourite corners of the web. This will be the last Suggestion Saturday post from me, at least for the time being. As I mentioned earlier this month, I’ll be experimenting with other types of posts here in 2019. Stay tuned!
New Year Candy. What a creative idea.
Celebrate New Year’s Eve the Latino Way via StephyOrtez. The effigy portion of these celebrations really appeals to me.
Don’t Set Goals for the New Year; Set Goals for Life via JamesPackWriter. Ooh, I like this advice.
The New Years Day Reflections of John Quincy Adams via shannonselin. Some of you might chuckle at this, but I’ve never really thought about what people thought about New Years Day in the past. Have you?
How to Prepare for a New Year of Blogging. There was a lot of excellent advice here. This is the perfect time of year to, take inventory of what is or isn’t working, make any necessary changes, and possibly even revamp your blog in general.
Five Reasons Your New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Stick, and How to Make This Year Different via DrJanaScrivani. I especially liked point #2.
From New Year:
The old Year is going. I am yet in the old year. I don’t want to let her go.
“Hi Buddies. I am going. Stop loving me. A new year is coming for you. She will take care of you.”
“I want you. You are very lovely. I flourished to so much in this year. I don’t know, how the New Year will be for me. I want you to stay.”
From The New Year Is the Oldest Thing – Inside Philadelphia’s Mummer Parade :
The parade occupies a weird position,” one of the Vaudevillains’ captains, Adam Leeds, told me afterward. “On one hand it’s a citywide parade, and it’s on New Year’s Day, which is an important day, but on the other hand, it’s also the parade of a specific set of neighborhoods and a specific set of ethnicities in South Philly, and those neighborhoods are continually changing. It needs to change. It needs to include more kinds of Philadelphians.”
