Top 10 O’Keefe/O’Keeffe/O’Keef’s on Twitter by Followers

When Brian Scott O’keefe followed me on Twitter, it made me look up what other O’Keefes were on the service. So, since I had already done this, why not post the top 10 most followed O’Keefes?

I used Twitter’s people search and I searched for not only O’Keefe, but O’Keeffe and O’Keef. Obligatory disclaimer: this search is limited. If someone doesn’t have O’Keefe/O’Keeffe/O’Keef on their profile, they wouldn’t show up. This is for fun and numbers aren’t all-important. With that out of the way, here are the top 10:

1. Kevin O’Keefe (kevinokeefe), 2,916 Followers
2. Tom O’Keefe (TOKiBiz), 1,158 Followers
3. Patrick O’Keefe (patrickokeefe), 906 Followers
4. Jeanne O’Keefe (thecolumbusteam), 632 Followers
5. Tom O’Keefe (TomOKeefe1), 561 Followers
6. Brian Scott O’keefe (randomblink), 556 Followers
7. Charlie O’Keefe (charlieok), 332 Followers

I Like: Simply Asia Rice Noodle Soup Bowls

Once in a while, I’ll randomly try something, sold by, that looks pretty good. I did this with Simply Asia Rice Noodle Soup Bowls, starting with the Garlic Sesame variety. It’s easy to make, healthy and really good. Problem is, Amazon has a really hard time keeping them in stock.

For this reason, I also tried the Spring Vegetable variety. It wasn’t as good, but was still quite good, in moderation. At the time of writing, it’s out of stock! So, apparently, plenty of people know about them. I may try another variety, but I’d definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a good, quick lunch.

Back and a Year Older

I’m Back!

I just wanted to mention that I am back from Blog World Expo. Outside of how I slept and felt in the mornings, it went great and the book signing and panels were awesome. I plan to post a detailed recap, but that will take some time, so I just wanted to get a post up, letting everyone know that I had returned. It’s amazing the amount of work that piled up in five days of being away! Hopefully, I’ll be back on top of everything by next week.

Video: “Take You There” by Donnie Klang featuring Diddy

I’m definitely loving the video for Donnie Klang’s first single, “Take You Here,” featuring Diddy, being the huge Diddy fan that I am. Great stuff.
