Video Update on The No-Refrigerator Challenge + The News

by Tammy Strobel on February 11, 2011

Every Friday, I post a Simple Living News Update that includes links to some of my favorite articles of the week; along with an inspiring quote from each piece.

In addition to the news update, I answer a reader question every week. This week I talked a little bit about The No-Refrigerator Challenge.

For those of you who can watch the video, read the following posts and check out my photos.

Now onto the news . . .

Bright Lights. Big Shadows.

“It used to be that our communities were small. We all knew each other, and a person’s reputation would be a sum of the experiences that we had with that person, and the stories we heard from other community members.

What happens when your community is global? What happens when social media slips us by the standard filters of a traditional community.? How do we relate to people we really don’t know?”

Do what matters, and don’t sell your soul.

“The last few weeks I’ve felt incredible highs and the worst lows. I have met brilliant people, amazingly talented individuals, and a few with no regard for the feelings of anyone but themselves. Meeting these people matters, because it changes who each of us are just a tiny bit; but it’s not changing the world.”

On Blogging Without the Internet

“Blogging is done 98% offline anyway: First and foremost, I’m a writer. The internet just happens to be where I post my finished product. Writing is done most efficiently (for me at least) offline.”

40 Ways to Give More Life

“Of all the gifts that we could ever give to another person, none holds more potential than giving life itself. And I love the idea that every interaction I have with another human being offers me that grand opportunity.”
