I love sharing links I love. I love sharing your links you love. My weekly series, Crazy Links I Love will be a place we can share our favorite links, blog posts, projects, and fundraisers … your favorite things every weekend. I want to be a cheerleader for you, a shout-out for you, and a place you can share your gifts, talents, and passions with other bloggers. You can also email me your link and write a blurb I can share with readers.
If you have a favorite post or link, it’s really simple to share: leave me a note in the comments. Let’s get this party started …
Here are a few of my favorite links this week:

American Blogger Official Trailer by Chris Wiegand #documentaryfilm
American Blogger Documentary Debuts Trailer, and Everyone Gets Upset by Sunny Chanel (via Babble)
I am a professional blogger and I, for one, would never want a movie made of my career for a couple of reasons. First, my work day is totally boring. I sit at my desk, usually in sweats, and type on a laptop all day. This is not compelling in any way, shape, or form. Secondly, I’m so busy with my day job of writing, writing, and more writing that I don’t have time to perfectly accessorize and clean my home and make it ready for the cameras. And forget about lounging in a hammock with a cute hat and waxing poetic about life as a blogger — that will never happen. That said, a documentary about bloggers is not the first thing I would rush out to see. But perhaps others would feel more inclined? The filmmakers behind American Blogger certainly hope so. #controversy
My Response To The American Blogger Controversy by Casey Leigh
(April 11, 2014) Well. I am not exactly sure where to begin. I started a blog 5 years ago when Aiden was first born in the NICU. Then two years later through a very heartbreaking time in my life, right before Ainsleigh was born, I created the blog “CaseyLeigh”. Which is what it is today. I created a really really beautiful community in this space. I fell in love with helping people and connecting with people.
With cheering on small businesses and seeing hard stories be redeemed. I found an inspirational place called the internet. I found people that I connected with, that could see my heart and who I am and what I stand for. Isn’t that something so beautiful about the internet? Literally thousands of blogs and you can choose to connect with any of them. There is certainly a story for everyone. #AmericanBloggerfilm
Isn’t “take care of yourself for your husband” just misogynistic propaganda? by Shaunti Feldhahn
Dear Furious, I can defend them [husbands] because I have talked to so many thousands of men, and have heard the tender hearts behind this awkward subject. Over the years, I have seen that understanding the truth – even when it is hard to hear – will set us free.
Nothing will be gained by avoiding hard subjects or dumbing down something that was very emotionally important to so many men. As your reaction shows, this truth isn’t something they can be honest about publicly. So someone has to be willing to say it for them. #marriage #bodyimage
5 Ways To Spring Clean Your Finances & Save Thousands! by Balancing Beauty and Bedlam
Yes, it’s that time of the year when everyone is talking spring cleaning, de-cluttering and new ways to freshen up the home. There’s nothing more freeing than emptying out all the old baggage and clutter that have accumulated over the winter, yet while we have no problem unloading the old clothes and organizing the shelves, many of us don’t focus on something even more important - Attacking our Finances with an all-out Spring Cleaning Agenda. #family #finances
Being Liked is Overrated by Jennie Allen
If you live trying your best to be liked by everyone, you are living a boring life. So just quit. Get over it.
Do you want to be liked or do you want to actually do something significant with this life? Let pleasing God become bigger than pleasing people.
A few weeks ago, I stood in front of tens of thousands of women hungry for God. We hosted our first gathering, and today I consider all I would have missed if I had fought just to be liked. #everydaylife
Spring In An Egg by Carla, Small + Friendly Blog
I started some chive seeds in egg shells as an Easter party favor of sorts. I of course did not come up with the idea of starting seeds in egg shells; in fact, I ran across a very similar project on Say Yes To Hoboken just the other day. That said, I thought I’d quickly share what I did, because you still have plenty of time to follow suit and wow your Easter guests, or maybe just get a head start on your own summer herb garden! #family
