This is not a list. It’s a… "Collection of Awesome."

Yeah, I was left off another list. This time, the Best Moms of Twitter from Babble.

But as I mentioned last year, lists are just that, a LIST. A collection of data points. Names gathered together from one perspective and while I have been added to the also-ran nominations, and really appreciate it, the point is – who is on YOUR LIST?

Who YOU follow is most important, because they are awesome, and they shape your community.

When people say they find Twitter boring, I say they are following the wrong people.

Here are 30 gozillion* awesome people, who I follow, for you to check out.

But it’s not a list.

*OK, maybe not 30 gozillizion – closer to 75. I never was good at math.

**Disclosure: I sleep with this one.

P.S. If I left you off the list, it doesn’t mean I don’t love you. It means I was hurrying to do this during my lunch break. And lists are stupid.

P.P.S. Who is on your list? Seriously. I love finding new awesome people.

P.P.P.S. How many times did I say awesome in this post?

  2. zipper

    ha ha! Go get em, Aimee! 🙂

  3. Bugfrog

    Great list! Love these peoples.

    Also, I do not sleep with all my followers.

  4. Megan

    You are so right! I think it is so interesting how who you follow shapes what info you get, how you day goes, etc! It’s wild!! Mine is private and small, so very intimate. I can’t imagine following thousands of people.

  5. Magpie = you want to follow her. 🙂

  6. Sizzle

    This is why I don’t put a lot of stock into those blogger awards either. Who decides these things?! If people like reading me/following me, great. I want a community, not an award.

  7. Donna

    Ha ha – I was combing through all the people I follow to put together my own list, too. You beat me to it!

  8. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Thanks all! and thanks everyfann- that was very kind of you.

    Donna – you totally have to!

  9. Carissa(GoodNCrazy)


    Okay first I must say… UM.. you ALPHABETIZED. Whoa, right there. Whoa.

    Second. I agree lists are weird.
    Third. I have another 30bazillion wonderful-awesomes for you to me. I’m on it….!

    Last… I love being on your awesomes. Even if all Mormons look alike. 🙂

  10. Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

    Aw shucks. I think you are awesome too.

  11. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Carissa – I was waiting for that!!!!

  12. Boston Mamas

    This? Is awesome dude. I love your non-list lists.

  13. Julie Pippert

    Wow on several levels…

    * an alphabetized list
    * that is all hyperlinked
    * and yes, made of sparkly awesome

    None of my followers sleep with me but considering how crowded my bed is on any given night with kids and animals and wait is that my husband hanging off the edge…that’s probably a blessing.

    Anyway much of my list is similar to your list. I have 1,522 fab ppl who keep twitter from being boring. If I listed them it would be useful but also hog space. 🙂

    MWAH you lovely lady!

  14. Kim Hosey

    Love this list! I keep saying I need to really get the hang of Twitter, and there’s plenty of inspiration here to do it.

  15. LetterB

    It’s an honor just to be nominated for teh awesome. Thanks, Aimee!

  16. califmom

    Hot DAMN! I’m on a list, surrounded by a whole lotta awesome!

  17. Laurie

    Aw, thanks. I’m obviously not even eligible for any of this stuff Babble does, so I just appreciate the great people I have around courtesy of Twitter and blogs. Like you. 🙂

  18. Alli Worthington

    Just another example of why you are awesome!

  19. Jessica

    Love this! So fun. You rock.
