Christmas 2010 Festive #FollowFriday #FF

Posted on 24th December 2010 in #FF/ #followfriday

Many moons ago, when I wrote a post called Twitter Is My Mistress. It was a nod to all that is good and great about twitter and the blogeverse in general. However I didn’t make the @names live links.

So, for my Christmas present to you all, I have painstakingly made every link live. Please see below for my #FF recommendations, a list of who I follow and why I follow them!

For keeping odd things in her bra and introducing me to twitter @MinaCab

For being kind enough to follow me back, and tweet me occasionally @richardm56 I’m not a daytime TV person so although I knew who he was, I wasn’t a stalker fan, but people said he was Mr Twitter, so I followed. He was funny. He made me laugh, I replied to a couple of his tweets – and he replied! I told him some mad tale about Binky (Richard’s late mail sherpa, long story) asking via the medium of Derek Acorah for him to follow me back – and he did! LOL. Twitter rocks!

For all things cake @thecakenest

For being a pocket rocket @porridgebrain

For being as deep as the ocean @WorldWithoutEnd

For Silent Sundays @cosmicgirlie

For consistent loveliness @JfB57

For extraordinarily bizarre conversations @PowerFairy

For thinking (mistakenly) that I’m a bit like Mary Poppins @DrewParky who, to me, is a little ray of sunshine, and for being his friend @pheonecia
