I interrupt your regularly-scheduled post with this week’s edition of Sunday Link Charity #17. This past week was nothing short of a zoo for me. And with last week behind me, I’m looking forward to a four day work week this week and the long weekend (Good Friday). I’m also stoked for the upcoming baseball season, and to see what the Blue Jays will bring to the table. Thus far they own the best preseason record of 22-4, and with a record like that who wouldn’t be excited.
I didn’t get to do too much writing or reading this week, but I managed to scour Twitter and my fave blogs for this week’s blog love. Like every week, there were many solid posts, so it had to be narrowed down. Here’s this week’s Sunday Link Charity, selected by yours truly;

Add Vodka – Growing a blog is a long and sometimes a painful journey. You definitely have to pay your dues, so Daisy shares her lessons learned in growing a blog. Great in depth post, but I’d like to add my two cents…..at the end of the day it’s all about quality articles. I try not to get wrapped up in others stats.
My University Money – Credit cards are always dangerous. They’re like an ex-junkie just waiting to relapse back into the dirty drug game. The bright side of credit cards is that they’re great if used responsibly. Credit cards are always dangerous (this coming from someone who used to be in CC debt), but there’s a specific reason why credit cards are dangerous for students.
