Recently I suggested the idea of Friday Five, along the lines of #FollowFriday on Twitter but with a twist – you choose five things to share that may or may not be related. Here’s this week’s five to get your weekend started.
- Blogger Corner. I’ve known Christina Kingston for a little while now, and I’m very glad I do. Not only is she a special person with a heart of gold, she’s also an incredibly talented blogger with a very witty outlook on life. From sex advice to Internet memes, Christina shares her inimitable voice with you – check her out.
- Local Heroes. One of my favourite movies is Local Hero by Bill Forsyth. It’s warm, gentle and human – much like David Holliday, Elli StGeorge Godfrey and Matt Caruso. These three people put on a live show in Lowell, MA, in support of the 12 Days of Christmas Homeless Push for 12for12k. So far they’ve raised $1,200 and a whole ton of awareness – kudos, guys, you rock.
- Friends Forever? Chris Brogan wrote today about how he’s cleansing his Facebook friends, and de-friending a bunch he hasn’t connected with in over a year. I’m not sure if it’s the right approach – aren’t these the same guys that bought the book, helped the blog grow, etc? How do you deal with growing friendships and would you follow Chris’s direction?
- Blast from the Past. A little while back I wrote why Twitter mobile apps don’t interest me, and it seemed to spark a healthy conversation on mobile app pros and cons. Now that I’ve been using a Twitter mobile app for a few weeks, it seems a good time to revisit my thoughts from then (follow-up post to come).
- Video Manana. Earlier this week I shared the uber-cool Maritz Canada holiday card, the Snow Globe (and if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out!). It received awesome feedback from a lot of people. So, it’s with great delight that I share the Globes of Darkness – the behind-the-scenes look at the making of a corporate video with a difference. Enjoy!
