Great tips Waylon! I would add:
1. Don't be afraid to take a stand. I'm guilty myself of being wishy-washy in some posts because I don't want to offend anyone, but one of my most popular post inspired a huge debate. Were some of the comments hurtful? Sure! But more were fair and supportive. You get meanies everywhere, but if you never express your opinion strongly, no one will care what you think.
2. Write more succinctly. Cut, then cut again!
3. People love lists "Five ways to..." "Seven insane bikes..." etc.

Yes, that sentence totally sums it up! I love my boyfriend because he supports my trying to be a better person totally, as do I him. He explicitly said last night that he loves me because I'm always striving to be better. I want to spend the rest of my life with someone like that.

This is a lovely thing to keep in mind: that self-compassion means forgiving our flaws, but wanting to be our highest self. Natalie Portman said it best last month: "I'm tough on myself in terms of the standards I want to live up to, but that's also part of my pleasure: knowing you are being your fullest self. Being your fullest self is a lot of work."

I loved my roommate's cats! Before I moved in with my boyfriend, I would always tease him: "No, you don't need to come over, I'm snuggling with Matteo and Luca."
