Taking its cue a little from Twitter’s Follow Friday tradition, Friday Five offers a slightly different take. It’s still a recommendation engine, if you like, but with a wider scope.
It won’t always be the same, either. It may be a Twitter user, a Youtube channel, a blogger, a news story, a DVD you need to watch, a band you need to check out, a blog post from the archives and much more.
Look at it as a little diversion to ease you into the weekend.
Hopefully you enjoy, and if you like the idea, why not leave your suggestions in the comments? Or share your own list at your blog and link back so we can see what you’ve come up with.
- Blogger Corner. If there’s one thing I love to do, it’s read, and most of my reading is of other blogs. One of the best out there belongs to Kneale Mann. A veritable Jack-of-all-Trades, Kneale is one of the best-kept secrets in both the blogging and marketing world. Genius, smart and warm, check out Kneale’s blog and subscribe today – you won’t be disappointed!
- Twitter Inspiration. Twitter is many things – a business tool, a customer service tool, a news feed and a place to simply make friends. One of these friends is Justin Parks. Not only is he super smart when it comes to social media, he’s a fellow WordPress geek – and that is never a bad thing! Someone I need to have a beer with soon.
- Audiotastic. Music is a huge part of who I am. From classic R&B to UK indie bands, Motown to punk rock and more, I can pinpoint various parts of my life by the soundtrack at the time. One of my ever-presents is a UK band called The Twang. Check out their song Cloudy Room and see what you think.
- Blast from the Past. I’ve always been fascinated by inspirational stories, and I like to try and share these with you from time to time, and see how they can relate to what we’re doing today. One of these was The Little Boy That Could, which shows us that it really is only ourselves that holds us back.
- Video Manana. Sometimes a video just comes along that needs no introduction other than it’s brilliant. From the British chat show Jonathan Ross, the legend that is Christopher Walken and his take on Lady Gaga’s Pokerface.
