It’s been a busy weekend, full of shopping, cooking, baking, decorating the Christmas tree, and hanging out with good friends. That’s why this week’s Sunday Reads is quite a bit later than usual! Apologies for the delay, but you really should check out the great reads on this week’s list:
- The Duggars and “those photos” of their miscarried/stillborn baby – Katie Allison Granju makes a compelling argument for why the choice to share those photographs deserves respect. Very well done, and I particularly appreciate the historical context.
- Blue Collar Christmas Love Letter. This moving piece about love, struggle, sacrifice, forgiveness and appreciation by Maggie May Ethridge at Flux Capacitor really spoke to me.
- Why Shouldn’t We Just Quit Twitter? As my once-favorite social networking site starts to feel, more often than not, like just one more thing to check off the never-ending to-do list, I find Sweetney’s question particularly relevant. Why is it so hard to walk away from something that’s no longer working for us?
- Past to Present: Breastfeeding Ads Through The Years – What a fun piece by Monica Bielanko, highlighting breastfeeding advertising from the 1800s on. Including beer! (Can you imagine that flying these days?)
