The First Ever Five Star Friday

Five Star FridayIt is officially the first Five Star Friday!

By way of a short explanation:
either every Thursday or every other Thursday, I will put a call out via Twitter for the submission of individual weblog posts that rise above the dreck proliferating on the internet, and I will highlight them in a post the following day, hence the name Five Star Friday. I do not care if the posts are three years old or were posted this morning, and they can be written by someone else or by you, if you are into the self-pimpage. As long as they are excellent reads, send them my way on Twitter. (Read the bottom of this post for instructions on how to message me on Twitter). Submitting entries to Five Star Friday offers kudos to those you love, and it serves up good writing for the rest of us.
