A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

The blogosphere pays off more than ever. "While once seen as a front-row novelty — and perhaps a fad — many of the top bloggers now . . . generate most of their income from endorsements or working with leading companies . . . . And those incomes are becoming substantial, with the top names making between $1 million and $3 million a year." [WWD]

Retired art teacher leaves $1.7 million to the Detroit Institute of the Arts. "Elizabeth Verdow, who died in 2014 at 86 after spending her entire career teaching art in the Detroit public school system, worked as a volunteer at the museum for almost 20 years . . . virtually her entire estate, saved and invested carefully over years from a teacher’s salary (she never married and had no children) went to the museum." [The New York Times]

How a man went from being a homeless fisherman to a chef at one of the best restaurants in the US. "Cooking, like life . . . is a process. Dornbush relays a phrase he and his fellow cooks use constantly: 'Almost there!….But not there yet.'" [Bon Appétit]

Nancy Ray has launched an online book club for 2016. I'll be reading along with some of the books. You can view the list of the books for the year and learn more here.
