I last shared a collection of blog posts from around the web four weeks ago and somehow another month has come and gone. Can you believe it? As the kids get ready to go back to school (if they haven’t already), let’s take another virtual journey of the web in search of some good reading.
Getting us started is Art Eddy from Life of Dad who had the good fortune to interview Chris Jericho. Yup, that’s Y2J himself, the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rollah. Most of us know him best as the charismatic professional wrestler, but Chris Jericho is also a podcaster, a published author, and a very proud and engaged father.
It takes two to tango. Janitta Wong shares some of her lessons after two years of marriage with Sam Chan. He offered his insights after six months and she returns with a woman’s perspective on the relationship. It may surprise some women to hear that when their husband says he’s fine, he really is fine… just remember to “practice communicating patiently and honestly.”
You’ve got to appreciate that entrepreneurial spirit! James Flawith of Lil Worker Safety Gear offers a glimpse into his experience on Dragons Den. He can’t tell us too much, thanks to the gigantic non-disclosure agreement he had to sign, but he can say that “it went nothing like [he] planned” and “things got crazy.” Fun times.
Thinking about heading down to Southern California? Jasmine Girn offers her guide to San Diego, highlighting seven of the key attractions that you just can’t miss. I’ve been to San Diego twice in my life (to my recollection) and I’ve hit precisely zero of these. I guess I’ll need to go back to check out Balboa Park and Sunset Cliffs!
A friend of mine asked me the other day why the Instant Pot seems like such a big deal. I told him it’s not that the Instant Pot can make anything that you can’t make with something else; it’s that it does it more quickly, easily and efficiently. James R.C. Smith adds to the appeal of simplicity by sharing some great Instant Pot recipes for beginners.
And finally, we celebrate the final days of summer with Dylan Cutler as she provides her recipe for a berry ocean breeze smoothie. This triple-decker smoothie, as she describes it, is a “triple threat” that “packs a punch with three powerhouse berries.” Not only does this sound delicious, but it also boasts all sorts of healthful benefits.
