Erin tells us how and why to stop comparing ourselves to others.
Ashley tells us why she’s been unsubscribing from so many newsletters lately. All reasonable points!

Now it’s time for you to share your link list post, or your favorite post from the week if you’re not the link list kind. Please link only one post, so that it’s fair for everyone. And do try to stop and visit some of the other bloggers in the link up!
The link up opens every Saturday Morning at The Annoyed Thyroid and Calm to Conniption, and every Friday evening here at The Geeky Shopaholic.
