What is Five Star Friday?
Five Star Friday is a new thing I am starting as of tomorrow. Approximately every other Friday, or maybe every Friday, or however it naturally turns out, I want to post a list of links to stellar weblog entries that you have found out there.
I am starting it for two reasons: first, I like to browse through the internet and see what is out there in the world of weblogs, but I do not get a lot of time to do that these days, and, second, I thought it would be nice to share and share alike while spreading some of that link love around.
Here is how you can get involved:
- Read weblogs, and when a particular entry in a weblog strikes you as being above average, make note of it.
- Send me a message on Twitter, and only Twitter, with the url for that INDIVIDUAL ENTRY. That allcaps means that I do not want a url for a whole weblog. Just single posts, please. If you do not have a Twitter account, sign up. It is awesome. You will not regret it.
- Your submission will appear in the next Five Star Friday, and the author of the post you submitted, be it you (shameless!) or someone else (how sweet!), will be slightly more famous for a whole day.
What say you? You say yes!
So, the first ever Five Star Friday is tomorrow. Go dig up that good webloggy content and send it to Five Star Friday Twitter-wise. We all need some good reading and a little extra fame at the end of the week.
In order to send me a submission, sign in to Twitter, type @FiveStarFriday in the message box with no space between the @ and FiveStarFriday, paste in the individual post url that you want to submit, and hit the "update" button.
PS. The reason I only want to take submissions via Twitter is because my e-mail inbox is a mess, and I don't want to lose any of the greatness that you guys have to offer. If you have any problems figuring out how to message me on Twitter, send me an e-mail, and I'll help you figure it out.
