Great reads for this Lazy Sunday

I was catching up on a bunch of great posts today. So instead of promoting each one separately, I decided to post a Sunday roundup of great reads you can enjoy too. Feel free to add your own in the comments. I'm thinking of doing this weekly on my personal blog. Enjoy! 🙂

1) How Entrepreneurs Can Create Their Own Luck by James Altucher

A great post on lessons learned as an entrepreneur, quick and insightful advice on how to raise money, build valuable relationships and sell your company.

2)  Internet freedom initiative mere lip service? by Jillian C. York

An interesting look at how many countries continue to censor and imprison journalists and bloggers for speaking out online. While many around the world seem to be listening, action must be taken to make a real difference.

3) An Oral History of 'Ms.' Magazine by Abigail Pogrebin

40 years after the iconic Ms. Magazine hit newstands, New York Magazine gives us a look at the leaders behind the movement. Co-founders Gloria Steinem and Jane O'Reilly share an inspiring and historic oral history.

4) How the Hashtag Became a Campaign Battleground by Nancy Scola

A really interesting look at the art of the hashtag in politics and how it's not dumbing down the conversation but advancing it-- and even adding some fun!

5) Why Kim Kardashian's Divorce is Good for America- and Women by Jennifer L. Pozner

For all the jokes and outright anger around the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries saga, this post offers a pretty different and interesting angle to the story and its overall cultural impact.
