Weekend Link Love — Edition 500 (With a Grok Giveaway)

Today marks our 500th Weekend Link Love.

It’s a big day. This is our 500th edition of Weekend Link Love. 500 Sundays. And it’s actually a bit more than that—because before WLL became the official name and slot, we did other links posts. There was “Friday Link Love,” and “5 Links You’ll Love!” (talk about setting the bar a little too low), and “Hit the Links!” My personal favorite was “Los Linky Links.” I still regret not sticking with that one. The alliteration is just killer.

Things have changed so much. Take a look at the very first WLL from all the way back to June 7, 2008. Check out that crisp, clean URL. See how the content has grown, the interest has expanded, and the quality has improved.

Many people write to me saying that WLL is a favorite part of their week, something they look forward to every Sunday. A vocal minority even claim it’s their favorite post on MDA itself, better than the feature articles. I love writing them. I love learning new things, learning that what I thought last week might need rethinking. The world is such an interesting place right now, and the Internet is a powerful tool for exploring it.

Here’s to 500 more…. And thanks for taking the ride with me.

Make Your Overall Wellness a Joyful Passion

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

 As a 50-year-old attorney I had let my desk job win. I knew my diet, sleep, fitness and overall stress levels were out of control, but I didn’t quite know what to do and definitely didn’t have the motivation. Until I read Mark’s 10 Primal Laws on his blog, which changed everything. What Mark was saying just made sense. I rushed out to get the Primal Blueprint and the the Primal Connection and my life has not been the same since. A few years later, down from 260 to 175, I can say, without hesitation, that the Primal lifestyle (as supplemented now with the Keto Reset) just works! I am the fittest I have ever been, my sleep and stress levels are great, and I have more energy than ever. With my wife as a partner in healthy living, we are a dynamic duo and have, to a great extent, the Primal lifestyle to thank!
