Friday FUEL Fix (09/18/09)

Well Friday has come again, and this week on FYC we wanted to do a little something special to cap off the week and send our readers off to their weekends with a little something extra. So we put together the idea for the Friday FUEL Fix. With so many great followers on Twitter, so many Flickr members contributing to the FYC Flickr group, and some awesome additions to the FUEL Brand Network we decided we would feature a little bit from all three areas in one post to show our appreciation for and of the people, designs, and posts we have chosen to feature.

FYC Twitter Follow Friday

We have thousands of great followers on Twitter and we really wish we could feature them all, because they really do so much for improving our online experience. But we will take some time when doing these posts to pass on a few recommended Tweeps that you should also be checking out. Thanks to all of you who take the time to help share our works and interact with us on Twitter, and here is the first of our Follow Friday post inclusions.

iblend @iBlend Louis is a great person to follow, always helpful and has a stream of stellar content.

jesslodge @jesslodge Jessica is somewhat new to the FYC Twitter family, but she is friendly and fun to follow so check her out. (besides anyone tweeting Pulp lyrics is a-ok in our book ;p)

f5 @fffffive Henry is another must follow, being another extremely friendly and helpful tweep. He is always more than a pleasure to interact with, he is a joy!

fontburger @fontburger Christina is another tweep that is fairly new to our stream, but she has quickly established herself as a resourceful and knowledgeable tweep. You won’t go wrong giving fontburger a follow!

megalone @megAlone When it comes to personality and pizazz, megAlone has got both in spades! She is always great to interact with and share in a laugh or in a link.

The FUEL Fix

Like we said before, we have so many amazing sister sites in the FUEL Network that we want to shine our spotlight over on the content that their awesome editors and writers are putting together. Each of these fantastic FUEL sites is loaded with inspiring and insightful posts and discussions so take a look down through the showcase and see if you have missed any of these must-reads.
