Normally I like to wait until I’ve read a book to actually recommend it, but for some writers I make exceptions. In this case, I’m talking about the amazing Anna Goldfarb (of the blog Shmitten Kitten, and an occasional Frisky contributor) and her upcoming memoir, Clearly, I Didn’t Think This Through: The Story of One Tall Girl’s Impulsive, Ill-Conceived, and Borderline Irresponsible Life Decisions. Now, the book — which is guaranteed to be as if not more hilarious than the genius Goldfarb pens online — isn’t out until November 6, but I’ve thought it through and have decided to pre-order it. And honestly? You should too. Because you’re not going to want to wait a second longer than necessary to start reading what this funny and relatable woman has to say. Consider it your responsible life decision of the day. [$15, Amazon]

Hey, do you read Wired? I don’t (Catherine has a subscription), but I am taking notice of Wired now – the cover of their August issue is certainly a departure from covers’ past and I must admit I recognize the pretty face, though many of you may not. Under the headline “Internet Famous: Julia Allison and the Secrets of Self-Promotion”, the August cover features Julia Allison, an NYC-based blogger who, among other things, covers sex and relationships for Time Out New York. She was recently dubbed “the modern day Carrie Bradshaw” by The New York Times because she writes about her personal life on her blog. Allison just launched a new blog/web portal called NonSociety.com with her best friends Meghan Asha and Mary Rambin. Now it should go without saying that thanks to platforms like Word Press, Blogger, Tumblr, and Type Pad, everyone from your crazy next door neighbor to my Grandma can blog, but usually one doesn’t end up on the cover of a major magazine like Wired as a result. So what’s Allison doing there and why should you care? Keep reading »
