Noteworthy Content of the Week

Written by Darice de Cuba on August 18, 2010

It’s week three and in the highlight we have weblog posts about food, books, health, comics, fiction and business. Like I said before personality is a very important part of a weblog. This week selections show this again with a story about a husband attending a corporate party of his wife’s company. An inspired post about laughter, a writer engaging his readers to participate on his weblog and another one sharing a family recipe.

Posts like these is what keeps your readers returning and maybe even to share something themselves in the comments.

Are You Freelance or Self-Employed?

One of the worst things about having a spouse in the corporate world is the support you may have to give, which sometimes includes being present at corporate social gatherings. And this is the situation I found myself in the other day.

Shift Your Mood With A Laughter Experiment

I was inspired to write this post by the lovely Kathy Popplewell after reading one of her newsletters.

Awesome Arena: Wonder Woman vs. Ms. Marvel

Care to see if our latest combatants can one-up the battle we had last week in an internet inspired confrontation between DC’s Wonder Woman and Marvel’s Ms. Marvel?

Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce

I grew up eating this dish so this is true taste of home-cooked food to me. Salty and savoury, this dish goes really well with rice and steamed buns (for kong bak bao ???). Every family has a different way of cooking this dish.

Little Ms. Massacre

With L’il Ms. M, you gotta wait for her to want you to ask her before actu­ally ask­ing her out for tea. She’s shy that way, if that’s what you call shy. She refuses, of course, when you ask her, but goes out with you anyway.

Book Review: Our Tragic Universe by Scarlett Thomas

Scarlett Thomas likes to write about big ideas. She doesn’t deviate from that in her latest novel, Our Tragic Universe. In fact, the novel is built around portentous issues like immortality and whether we are all living in a simulated universe — and the storyless story.

From personal experience I can say even if you don’t get comments there are people regularly reading your weblog. You might not have a huge audience but you are reaching someone out there. I sometimes get unexpected email or once even a gift from people I had no idea where longtime followers. So keep writing with passion, for yourself and for your readers may it be one or thousand.
