January 29 #FollowFriday

By: Gini Dietrich | January 28, 2010 | 

I have been really bad at my #FollowFriday lists since the holidays. But I’m back!

@DashalGroup Nick might very well be one of the funniest (is that a word) people I know. The things that come out of his mouth (or fingers) make you stop and think, “Where the heck did that come from?” He also is not shy, at all, at making fun of me, which I love. He makes fun of me and other people laugh. Trust me on this one, you want to follow him. He’s starting @crapthatsfunny and I guarantee you’ll think whatever he posts is FUNNY. He’ll be mad at me if I don’t at least tell you what he does for a living – advertising and Web design.

@JaimieField I don’t remember how Jaimie came into my life, but she came in with real force! Even though she’s a Yankees fan (we forgive her) and an attorney (but doesn’t practice, so we forgive her) she is always a bright light in my tweet stream at the end of each day (she’s much more disciplined than me – I check Twitter all day; she checks at the end of the day).  If you’re an attorney, Jaimie is a must have connection. As I take over the world, she’ll be there with me.

@Egehead Cindy is my new BFF because she sent me her powdered sugar cookie recipe, which I made last weekend and they are DIVINE! So, so good! Two ways to my heart: Be funny or give me good food. You know how you meet someone, even on Twitter, and you just know they’re going to be a good friend? That’s Cindy. Take a look at her tweet stream…you’ll see what I mean.

@DougDavidoff I met Doug on Twitter because of something I tweeted about Vistage. Then we met IRL when he was in Chicago last fall. Then we started working together. Now I don’t know what life was like without him. He is the only non-salesy sales person I know. His philosophy on sales is brilliant because it’s based on relationships and not on selling. He has a blog called Fast Growth, where he shares his philosophy, tips for success, and case studies. I always learn a thing or two from his posts…which is why I tweet almost all of them.

@MomieTullottes I am a new contributor to Associated Content and Lyn was the first person to not only reach out to me to say “welcome”, but also the first person to comment on my article. She is not only a mom (and homeschools her kids!), she is a writer. The content she provides to other writers is flawless and super complete. If you write, or want to write, for a living, she’s a must check out!
