January 2014 Rundown: 441 Links

on February 1 | in Affirmations, Community Awareness, Individual Improvement, Inspirations | by | with Comments Off on January 2014 Rundown: 441 Links

Every day, I read the latest posts from quite a few sites and share my favorites on the home page. This rundown of the month’s links differs in approach from last month’s rundown since there was over 100 more links to organize.

I’ve broken these out into three main categories based on the number of links to the dominant websites. That’s so my favorite sites don’t get lost in the giant lists of links for the big boys.

Once again, if you have favorite websites that focus on positivity, self-improvement, or community and they’re not listed here, please let me know in the comments!

Keep on keeping on,

Every day, I read the latest posts from quite a few sites and share my favorites on the home page. This rundown of the month’s links differs in approach from last month’s rundown since there was over 100 more links to organize.

I’ve broken these out into three main categories based on the number of links to the dominant websites. That’s so my favorite sites don’t get lost in the giant lists of links for the big boys.

Once again, if you have favorite websites that focus on positivity, self-improvement, or community and they’re not listed here, please let me know in the comments!

Keep on keeping on,
