Follow Friday

Getting back into the swing of things after Journalism Camp proved more difficult that previously predicted.  I only made it to one chat this week (#brandchat) and barely made it to that one!  I played ketchup the entire week and now here it is, Saturday morning, and I haven't made a Follow Friday post!  SHAME ON ME!

Here are my picks for this week's Follow Friday.  Introduce yourself and let the fun begin.

@dwmdm: He's Canadian, he's smart, and he designed my new header!  Who wouldn't want to follow someone who selflessly gives their time to someone they've never met face to face?  He is always pretty funny.  Check out what he said about Sno-Cones.

@rachelmccarver: I met her as a freshman at Ball State University and we are still in touch; if they doesn't speak volumes I don't know what will!  You want more?  Okay: she's a wife, a dog-owner, a high school teacher, and she loves celebrity gossip.  She also is the one who started me watching Big Brother (and I showed her the light LOST).  You should ask her where 'Da bomb like tick tick' came from. #SheIsRad

@martinssecrets: He's an author and father of 6; he's always got something going on!  He's friendly, he replies back, and he'll teach you a thing or two about the publishing industry (and about life as well).  He is also into art, music, the real estate business, and marketing.

@hillarytribbett: Also a graduate from Ball State University, she works for the non-profit organization Live United.  She uses Social Media as part of her job and is a great example to follow on how to do it right.  Not only that, but she is the next big thing in country music!  She is a performer/artist/songstress/goddess.  I like the sound of that.

@tic_not_tock: He's a used-car salesman.  He lives in southern, Indiana.  He loves to read.  He is also a gamer.  I myself am not a gamer but I can appreciate his excitement/enthusiasm about it.  He's very nice and replies, which is awesome.  Did I mention that he's also a blogger?

@squigglejay: I hadn't talked much her with before this week, and boy am I glad I did!  She has a huge heart and her dog is adorable!  Her tweets are interesting to follow and I love that she shares photos.  I also have a sneaking suspicion that she loves celebrity gossip, just like me.

@themichellebell: She's a commenter at ONTD and she is hilarious.  She also lives in Boston, one of my favorite cities in the USA.  She posts updates, pics, and replies often.  I also dig her glasses!  Her music taste is pretty rad, too.  Check out the funny picture she posted of a fake flower.

@dcguru: He's a beach body coach!  If you don't know what Beach Body has to offer, definitely send this guy a tweet.  Besides being buff, he is incredibly inspiring and positive.  Who doesn't need a little sunshine on their timeline?  He followed me because he liked my smile; I followed him for the same reason.

@blackoutmonster: I've been meaning to add him to my Follow Friday Favorites for over a month ... He is handsome, he is funny, he loves Britney Spears.  He also hails from Abu Dhabi/Dubai.  It's awesome talking to someone from across the globe in real time.  He keeps his twitter light ie funny and he posts lots of photos.

@10thousandroses:  She also tweets from Boston and she loves music.  Her background may give you an idea of her favorite artist ... just saying.  She's funny and she's a pop culture diva.  She updates about all kinds of things, from music, to tv shows, to weather patterns.  Check out her tweet about Shark Week; it made me laugh.


BONUS: @mattdantodd: He's a dad and a pastor.  He's funny, witty, and encouraging.  He cares about what's happening locally as well as globally.  He is also considerate and inspiring.


Have a safe and awesome weekend!  Previous Follow Friday posts can be found in the sidebar.
