 This was a short month [yet longer than usual for February – yay for Leap Year]. Here are the links that have made this February a good one.

Ikea.com. You didn’t think you would escape the Swedish masterpiece, did you?

IMDB.com. A good place to find out about all the great movies that are coming out, as well as past cinematic adventures to revisit.

Men.Style.com. The online home of GQ and Details magazines, and a good place to find out about the latest gadgets and products that men like.

PostTots.com. The impending fetal bomb is growing fast, and this site is a great place to find all the those finishing touches for the nursery.

So, how was your February? Tell me all about it in the comments section.

 Well, it’s the last day of the month, and what a great month it’s been. 2008 has really gotten off to a good start for me. Here are the links that have brought this new year to a fresh start.

DetailsForMen.com. A great place for men to find more beauty products, and a good find when working with body-conscious male clients.

ReadyMadeMag.com. A good place to find some good ideas for new at-home projects. Great if you have a lot more free time on your hands. Be sure to check out their print magazine as well.

SpaFinder.com. Great to look into, even if you don’t have a week off and a few thousand dollars to blow.

Epicurious.com. I’ve found some great recipes since I talked about it last. Be sure to check it out if you’re doing some entertaining or even if you just want a great meal.

BackPackIt.com. It’s a lifesaver. That’s all there is to it.

So, how has this new year been treating you so far? Let me know in the comments section.

Welcome to another edition of Links Gallerie. As this is the last day of 2007, I have decided to share some links that have been inspirational to me throughout the year. So, here are my top five links for 2007.

The Five Steps to Creating a Personal Mission Statement. It’s really helped me focus my efforts and has given me a personal road map to follow throughout the year.

Barnes and Noble. This website has saved me a lot of time and mileage. You have no idea [or maybe you do] how annoying it is to see something online, just to drive all the way to the store and find out that they don’t have it in stock, or that it’s only sold on the web. Geez…

Entrepreneur.com. This place almost became my home page these past few months, I was there so often. The articles and how-to guides for starting and growing your business are extremely helpful. I think I’m about three credits from a MBA after reading all this website has to offer.

Creative Pro Office. This is a great tool for keeping track of my clients’ time and services, and it even allows my clients to log in and see their accounts as well. It’s the online program that I use when registering new clients and recording the time that I’ve spent working for them.

Hostess with the Mostess. This site is great. So many ideas, so many articles, and so many links to great artists, product lines, and other blogs. I do like reading blogs in my spare time, so this site is really great for me.

I hope that everyone has had a great year. I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to 2008. A new year, a new leaf, if you know what I mean. I feel that now is the time when I can take stock of everything that’s happened to me and around me and really look closely at how I can change things for the better.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m making a New Year’s Resolution. Those things are overrated and sadly depressing at times. Especially when you forget about them within the first two weeks of January. I’d say that this is my Anit-Resolution, but that would just be too cliche. So, I’ll just call it my New Year’s Musings.

So, what are you going to do for New Year’s? Some soul-searching? Partying? Reading? Feel free to share your traditions in the comments section.
