Follow Friday is a trend on twitter that really irritates me.
I don't know why.
Oh, yeah I do. It makes me feel that if I leave someone out I am saying they are not good enough to follow. Which of course is just such bull...er...puckey. I am trying to keep it clean today.
So I am officially opting out of follow Friday on Twitter. Not because I don't appreciate all the folks who offer me up as their example of a great follow (does that sound dirty?) but because I hate leaving people out. If they said you can only offer up one person as a follow Friday that would have more meaning but to just jump on the band wagon because everyone else is doing it...well I just can't anymore.
What I am going to do is high light some of my favorites. The ones that I follow and I why I do that. They are all worthy, but each for different reasons. Since I spent about an hour last night trying to figure out who should go first, I finally devised an Excel spreadsheet and had my husband pick a number. I logged them in no particular order than sorted them alphabetically. I have serious problems, I know.
So without any further ado...I give you the first of my many follow Friday recommendations. (I am posting this today instead of tomorrow because I am picking a winner for the book contest tomorrow.)
We are going to start with Ms. Karla Nellenbach. (Your number was 69 and my husband giggled when he picked it.) (Of course I have no idea why.) (And of course I should not have been surprised when he picked that one.)
Okay so why do I think you should follow Karla or @LastWord0524, well for starters because she is my Ninja sparring partner and there is nothing like a good Ninja sparring partner when you are feeling down. We tweet our Ninja greatness back and forth (sometimes she wins but its mostly me, of course if you asked her she would say she mostly wins but since this is my blog...well you get the drift.)
Her blog is pretty awesome too. You can find her here at the LastWord. She likes to tease us with little tidbits of her writing, which so far as I can see if pretty awesome. She also writes great book reviews. I know I listen to her.
She always makes me laugh and is a total smart ass. (I know I said I was keeping it clean. Sue me. There is no other way to describe her. I even tried looking up another word in the thesaurus just in case there was a better way to say it and the only word that jumped out at me was cocky (and she is) but I think smart ass just says it better!)
So if you don't follow Karla, you should. And if you already do than you know what I speak is the truth. And since I am always looking for new people to follow please offer up one of your favorites so I can go and follow them today. Not fifty, just one. I am listening. And I promise to follow. Wow, that is some power I am handing out to you guys today!
