Most of you will be aware that today is Father’s Day (if not, I advise making a quick apologetic phone call before reading on), but it’s been brought to my attention that 20/6/10 marks the first ever “Manchester Day

As I’m always one for marking ridiculous holidays that’ve been made up by tourist boards and councils, I’d like to share four Mancunian things that you should celebrate. Preferably by faking a Liam Gallagher accent, whilst drinking a pint of Holt’s.

Manchester SEO

Naturally, I’ll have to mention FirstFound here, given that it’s my job to publicise the company (and create great free content like the FirstFound Social Media Guide </plug>), but there’s a lot of non-corporate SEO advice to be had in the Capital of the North. There’s the #MancSEO meetups,  and great blogs like Webtoastie.

Manchester Copywriting

I’ll take it as read that you’re familiar with Unmemorable Title, but I’m far from the only copywriting blogger in Manchester. There’s UT guest poster Tom Mason, and people like Martin Williams (the only man to be following me on Twitter twice). That’s far from a comprehensive list, but as we Mancunians are SEO experts, Google is your friend.

Manchester Blogging

It’s almost heresy in a post like this, but I do need to mention plazzie Scouser Roger Davies and his great blog post about moving to Manchester. Now that’s done, we can move on to the cream of the city’s bloggers. I’ve covered them before, but you should familiarise yourself with last year’s Manchester Blog Awards finalists. And then add My Shitty Twenties and I Thought I Told You To Wait In The Car to your RSS feeds.

Manchester Football

Specifically this match.

Yeah. Manchester and football. Even Leeds fans can learn to love it.

Andy’s been slack in updating the blog because he’s been busting his chops on the FirstFound Blog. He is still on Twitter more than he should be though.
