Hello from snowy Russia! Remember the #followfriday tradition on Twitter? I've been thinking that it would be great to do something similar on Facebook. From now on I will recommend one colleague each Friday on my Facebook business page . Last Friday was my first try and it went great :) I also felt that this tradition could continue in my blog. Catherine Christaki had the same idea and I am very thankful for the support of both Catherine and Tess Whitty. So, I am starting a new rubric called "Meet the linguist" . Soon you will be able to see it among featured rubrics in the upper section of this blog. Why am I starting the rubric? I have two goals: 1. To inspire more networking among linguists. 2. To help people who come across my blog to find a specialist they need.
