Lovely Links: 4/29/11

So, this is me swallowing my pride: I’m gonna ask for your help and hope earnestly that I’m not overstepping. I am trying to push through a big Already Pretty-related initiative that has turned out to be frustratingly traffic-contingent. (Meaning it has stalled out because the Powers That Be say I don’t get enough hits.) So I’m doing a multi-tiered ask of friends, readers, and followers:

If you enjoy Already Pretty, would you be willing to e-mail my link to five friends? Stumble or Digg me? Spread the word about my blog to like-minded folks? I would be so very, very grateful for your help! is the link to distribute, and if you need something specific to Stumble/Digg check the greatest hits section. Huge and heartfelt thanks in advance for your amazing ongoing support! read more
