Time for another Follow Friday feature here at Fang’s Bites. Just a quick refresher. I’m bringing this over from Twitter. You suggest your favorite Tweeters for others to follow. If you like them, you click “follow” and go from there.
I’ll suggest some of my favorite sites for you to follow.
For Sports Media, Bruce Allen of the Boston Sports Media Watch. Bruce has done a great job providing links to the all things Boston sports as well as providing a nice check on the writers who have massive agendas. And for disclosure purposes, I’m also a contributor there as the Friday megalinks are posted there as well.
Also in sports media, the great Sports Media Watch keeps up with the ratings for various sporting events and also does some good writing on various issues. Paulsen does a very good job researching his posts.
One more sports media blog and that’s the Eye on Sports Media run by Christopher Byrne.
For mainstream sports media blogs, there’s Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News who keeps up with all things in the Metroplex.
I like linking to Tom Hoffarth of the Los Angeles Daily News to get a West Coast perspective.
To baseball and Red Sox blogs, I’ve always like Dan Lemonthe’s Red Sox Monster blog. He does a great job keeping the blog updated. And he links to my blog.
It’s an easy pick, but Peter King of Sports Illustrated really is a must read for all NFL fans. Is his Monday Morning Quarterback self-indulgent? Is there too much manlove for Brett Favre? Yes and yes, but I enjoy reading him. Plus, he does get information that other reporters don’t.
Digital Sports Daily is in its infancy, but it’s fast becoming a very good destination as an electronic sports newsgathering operation. I’m not saying that because I’m occasional contributor, but I say that because I believe it. Visit it often.
For strict entertainment and pictures of hot chicks, visit Busted Coverage. I’ve seen this site grow from just a small site to a very popular one. And every once in a while, BC breaks stories. I have noticed the site went through a redesign and for some reason, Fang’s Bites was dropped from the blogroll. I hope that’s rectified.
There are a lot of bloggers who don’t like her, but I don’t have a problem with her. That’s Jennifer Sterger, the former Florida State Cowgirl who was got her claim to fame thanks to a cutaway shot during a college football game. She blogs, she tweets, she has her own YouTube channel, but overall, she’s a hot chick.
In Sports marketing and public relations, Joe Favorito has a very nice blog and keeps up with some stories across the country.
For non-sports blogs, head over to Moments of the Week, run by my good friend, Linda Dias. During American Idol, she kept up on the voting and the contestants. I avoid American Idol like a chemical weapon, but if you’re into it and many of you are, then check out Linda’s site.
And this one is a personal favorite not because of the subject, but because it’s run by my cousin Lina, The Traveling Food Critic. Thanks to her job, Lina gets to go to great American cities and sample the local cuisine. Sometimes when she comes to Boston, I’ll take part in the sampling. The blog provides a nice service especially if you travel or if you’re looking for a good restaurant in your own neighborhood. And drop a line to Lina to let her know that you’re visiting her site.
Finally, I would link to Morgan Wick, but he’s asked me not to link to him this week, so I won’t. He says once he’s ready which should be next week, I should do so next Friday. Ok, I’ll abide by his request.
That concludes your Follow Friday for today.
