About a year ago, I was happy to get to meet Micah Baldwin, the creator of #followfriday. I met him at a WordCamp, actually—WordCamp Chicago 2009, in fact—where he spoke in part about how #followfriday came together. What stood out to me about Micah’s story, in particular, was when he described how unintentional its creation was. He thought it would be something fun for he and his friends, but didn’t anticipate anything of the size it is now.
In fact, I remember he even apologized for starting it during his presentation.
It’s true that sometimes big things happen unintentionally. Today, we’re hoping you will use some of your possibly unintentional influence on Twitter to share the WPCandy name with others. It’s #followfriday after all, so let’s share with others just why WPCandy is worth following.
If you’d like to send your own Twitter message, please do (just include @wpcandy in your tweet). Or, you can use this message we’ve put together:
