You know about “follow friday” on twitter, right?
It’s the thing on where you mention someone’s twitter handle with the oh-so-important #ff tag. With this simple gesture, you vouch for someone, and invite others to follow them.
The thing is, It’s mostly bullshit.
#FF is really about showing others what a great connector of people you are, and how they should be thankful you showed them the way.
Whatever. If a three character tag is all it takes to pique your interest in someone, you may want to set your standards a wee bit higher.
As my protest against this idiocy, and as a way to keep writing during the summer, I’d like to do better than a FF, and actually show you some people I read/listen to that I happen to find interesting. Each week I’ll invite you to take a listen/read to someone who may or may not be new to you. Let me know what you think.
I hesitated starting this series of posts, because inevitably, someone I don’t mention will perceive that I don’t find them interesting. That’s probably not the case, and stop taking everything so personally, ok?
Anyway, I think it’s rather timely, there’s been a lot of “You are what you eat” sentiment going around.
Pay attention to what you’re consuming. Start here:
And by watching Sylvain Grand’maison – You are what you hear :
– let’s see if I can help you move off the Social Media A-list people busy beating each other senseless with their iPads, to people I (and you might) find interesting.
I’m hoping you’ll do the same..
