#followfriday (or #ff) is a tradition started by Micah Baldwin (according to Mashable), whereby you name Twitter user your followers should know about. It is important to provide information about the name user, to help others decide whether to follow them. Hence, in addition to naming interesting users on Twitter, I provide a bit of background information on them in here. Enjoy!
This week I seem to be obsessed with blogs and blogging – both from the point the view of bloggers and from the point of view of businesses and society. So, it is fitting that my #followfriday recommendation this week should go to @pushingsocial.
@pushingsocial is Stanford Smith’s twitter handle. And Stanford is on a mission to help you make the most of your blog.
Stanford writes and shares resources on areas as diverse as identifying topics to blog about, finding the time to write or getting your posts noticed. In fact, I find much of his advice relevant to writing in general, not just blogging.
If you blog – or are simply considering it – make sure you follow @pushingsocial.
