In this post, I’m raising a toast to a bunch of excellent posts of my Twitter buddies. Yeah, it’s #followfriday love fest – a perfect excuse to say my thanks to friends who have helped me keep at bay this overstaying blogging funk.
My #followfriday shout-out has evolved yet again. It’s too constricting to confine this Twitter meme to just brilliant conversations or tweets. Those stuff might have broadened my mind and made me burst out laughing, but you might find it odd and silly. There is, however, universal admiration for brilliant and useful writing. Makes more sense, eh?
So I raided the comment section to check who made my posts brilliant with their insightful contribution. I also rummaged in my Google Reader in search of posts worth sharing all the while praying, “Please, you got to have a Twitter ID. Please, please…” As you can see, two buddies have no presence in Twitter.
No way will this stump me though.
See? I redefined yet again my #followfriday list. But who says I can’t? If a content thief can suddenly spring from nowhere and snatch away my previous #followfriday post, I should have my way with this to suit my taste.
A touch of humor and dollops of class
Is it just me or morose guys just love humor in writing more so than others? Well, that’s me being attracted to quirkiness, a touch of humor and dollops of splendid writing. Note: Followers of @tumblemoose, please take note that he prefers using @GeorgeAngus.

Creative writing goodness
Despite evidence to the contrary, I love checking out creative fiction and poetry. Nothing compares to creative writing gems to make you yearn to be a writer, too. You’ve blogging down pat already, but to be writer? Caramba.

Sometimes, I just don’t want to learn another how-to. Too much of it can sometimes hurt the brain – that’s me speaking from experience, of course. The quest for uberness can wait. Just want my cup of coffee and let the voices of writers wash over me.

Read me at your own risk. I’m as buggy as a poorly written code. And I have this suspicion it will take a while before I get out of my Beta version. Not to worry, I’m working on it with the help of these people. Hey, I have a Gotcha moment last week. I discovered Dave Doolin who breaks down SEO processes and tweaks as well as easy on the brain practical WordPress tips in his WebsiteInaWeekend blog.

A splogger scraped the post of my good friend Elmot and he wrote a breathless account of his experience. It may be old news to you, but it’s our first brush with content thievery so pardon our excitement. Barbara and Holly examined the implications of the new FTC guidelines and how it may impact on bloggers. Rey Jr who’s got a first hand look at the lousy state of disaster preparedness in the country has come up with a list of helpful suggestions and asked his readers to do the same.
