I AM STUFFED!  Are you?  I ate far too much yesterday but I already kicked myself out of bed and onto my bicycle so I’m feeling a little better.  Really I shouldn’t have mentioned to my aunt that my boyfriend and I can’t afford meat because she sent us home with nearly every leftover.  We’ll be eating like kings for a week!

But now that the feasting is over, it’s time for chaos to begin.  I’ve found some great articles this week to prepare us for the aftermath of the holidays and goal-setting for the future.  Happy reading!  (And happy snacking on leftovers, which I’m totally NOT doing right now.)

Many of us have family members who don’t necessary understand what we do or why we do it.  This week Erin Giles released an amazing video that helps you get over the fact that They Will Talk No Matter What So Do It Anyway!

Now that the holidays are in full swing, you may be wondering how to keep your blog updated and how often you should post new content.  Well, never fear because Annabel Candy of Successful Blogging answers all those questions and more in her post How Often Should You Update Your Blog?

If you have ‘Learn a new skill’ on your list of 2012 Goals, you’ll definitely want to read the new post by The Skool of Life that shares 5 Ways to Give Yourself an Education that Kicks the Crap Out of the One You Got in School.  (Some really clever and inventive ways I never would have thought of to get the education you deserve…for less money than grad school!)

I have yet to fully master Google+, which is why I knew I had to share this article on Think Traffic that shares 11 Ways to Build a Community Around Your Google+ Page.  Have you figured out Google+ yet?

Nathalie Lussier wrote a great tutorial that will show you How to Embed a YouTube Video on a WordPress Blog.  She also has some tips for experienced techies to customize the video embed.
