A well-known blogger had the idea to post Follow Friday recommendations to your blog to help clear out the Twitter feed a little bit and drive traffic to your site instead. I've participated in #ff a couple of times, always listing people individually with specific reasons listed why I love their feed and think you'd like it too. Since there are few things I dislike on Twitter more than a list of @s with no reasons why (I've literally NEVER followed someone from one of these lists), I like this suggestion very much. So, first #ff list will be the people whose posts I never miss. Sure there are people with billions of followers that I try not to miss but why would I list them here? You're likely already following. Next week, business related. Then, maybe art/food/music/bikes/hilarity.....in no particular order.
@lotaleesparkman - She has a dreamy, other-worldly language all her own. Most courageous person I know, bestie, and business partner of sorts. Owner of paperlily design + photography. Extraordinarily talented. (Disclosure: most of the photos I will use are hers. The thumbnail for this post is hers. She loves toast. Sometimes, we'll have chats 100 lines long about toast and toasters. Overshare? Maybe. But it's toast.)
@brokenhalo - His brain is represented. And it's a really good brain. Tells great stories. Consistently makes me laugh and I'm tough on funny. He's a freelance writer, which means you can read more than 140 almost anytime. Don't miss his wife's hilarity either - @misskittypryde. The banter between them is snort-worthy.
@winnerbowzer - For her swears, both imaginary and real. I am a swearer and her feed is cathartic. New friend & cutie pie.
@billybillybilly - My friends call him the only one of our parents cool enough to be allowed on Twitter. My Dad. And while he doesn't post too often, when he does, it's hilarious or very profound and educational. Perfect balance.
Now you have my quick list. Who are some of the people you never miss?
