Today marks the first day of November! (I hope all of you had a happy Halloween!) Are any of you participating in Nanowrimo or an equivalent month long challenge? Doing so can really boost your sense of accomplishment & self discipline, so it’s definitely something worth thinking about.
This weeks linkstream is a little short, mostly because a vast majority of the things I look at online, come from the northeastern US. To all my outlaw friends who’ve been affected by the terrible storm, I hope you guys are safe & doing as well as possible (believe me, I live in Houston, I know how awful hurricanes are!)
Without further ado, links!

- The bell curve is moving–by Seth Godin. “We now live in a society with more people more willing to change more often. And that means your customers are restless, and more likely to walk away if you don’t treat them the way nerds want to be treated. Amaze, delight and challenge…”
- Changing seasons are a good time to evaluate life, take stock, clean out & reorganize everything in our lives from work to our diets. Here’s a great guide on how to stock a pantry for fall & winter.

- After the hurricane, environmentalists don’t think it’s a good idea to rebuild the jersey shore, but it’s definitely a historic place that means a lot to the country & a very important tourist spot, so it’s definitely a hard decision.
Have a great weekend outlaw friends!
