Welcome to the Friday Five! We invite you to write your own Friday Five post about anything you want and link it up with us below! Just one stipulation: if you link up, it must be a Friday Five type of post! Today's guest Friday Five post comes from Farin who writes over at The Newest Vazquez's. Farin researched and listened to a bunch of TED talks and is sharing her top 5 talks that bloggers should check out!
5 Essential TED Talks for Bloggers
I love TED talks. Essentially, TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) talks are videos that allow experts- on a variety of topics- to get their ideas to a large audience. These talks range from "the smelly mystery of the human pheromone" and "how to separate fact and fiction online" to classics such as "my journey to yo-yo mastery".
And since the TED app allows me to save these 'talks' for offline viewing during my commute, I am able to keep myself entertained by a large amount of information. And oftentimes I am watching something and I think "I know someone who could use this information". And, so I've been keeping a list to share with you.
1. Mena Trott: Meet the founder of the blog revolution
2. Matt Cutts: Try something new for 30 days
3. Jennifer Golbeck: The curly fry conundrum: Why social media “likes” say more than you might think
4. Adam Ostrow: After your final status update
5. Neil Pasricha: The 3 A's of awesome
Thanks for sharing these with us Farin! They all seem like great "talks" to go and listen to!
