Five Fun Things on Friday (1-15-10)
Fun Thing #2: The Secret to Looking Young from a Dermatologist
I loved this post about The Secret to Looking Young. Click that link immediately and read the secret. Especially if you’re a woman, I guarantee this will make you smile.
Fun Thing #3: The Perfect Reply to Unwanted PR Pitches
As blogging becomes more widely recognized as a way to build “buzz” around products, the volume of PR pitches to successful bloggers has increased steadily. Every blogger I know is bugged by unwanted pitches on a daily basis, but now The Bloggess has the perfect reply to unwanted PR pitches. (This post has a swear word alert, but if you’re a blogger I guarantee it will make you laugh. Also it looks like some of the companies who sent the worst pitches have now apologized and promised to do better, which is also a fun thing.)
Fun Thing #4: BlogHer’s Most-Loved Posts of 2009
Many of you know that I also write about food at a site called BlogHer.com. This week BlogHer editor Rita Arens rounded up The BlogHer Community’s Most Loved Posts of 2009, and I was thrilled that two of my food posts made the cut. There is a lot of very good writing here, so pull up a chair and see what the BlogHer contributing editors had on their minds this past year.
Fun Thing #5: Skills Everyone Should Master
Might Girl started working in 2008 on this gender-neutral list of 100 Skills Everyone Should Master, and it’s a good one. There are some good links for guidance too, in case you haven’t mastered a few of the skills yet.
So those are my fun things for this Friday. And because every week should have room for a little more fun, I’d love to hear in the comments about any fun things you cam across during the week. If you need just a little more Friday Fun, you can use the label for Five Fun Things on Friday to see fun things I’ve shared on other Fridays!
