Quote of the month + Link Roundup (Links I Love)

Quote of the month: Set goals that make you want to jump out of bed in the morning

I’ve been reading a lot of Link Love/Link Roundup posts on other blogs lately, and since I always find them really helpful, I decided to do my own monthly version. The featured links aren’t necessarily posts that were published this month — some are just posts that I found this month.

My Link Roundup also includes a motivational quote, because who doesn’t love those? The quote is “Set goals that make you want to jump out of bed in the morning”. I really need to life by that one. Now, let’s have a look at those links!

    Hey Cristina, thanks for considering my post worthy of your monthly faves! I love the idea of making this a monthly instead of weekly thing! I am so glad you posted Kayla’s twitter chats. I was just looking for some good ones the other day and totally didn’t realize she had posted this. The amazing links for designers is great too. I didn’t know about the Shutterstock trends site either, good find!
