About Us


Welcome to myFiveBest.com!

myFiveBest is an educational and entertaining web site where someone writes a topic and tries to come up with five examples to explain the reasoning behind their choice. This leads to sharing facts and opinions behind their choice. Topics can range from history, to politics, to entertainment, or anything the person can conceive.

Where did the idea come from?

The idea for myFiveBest is originally a car game my father and I used to play when I was growing up. One person would pick a topic and then the other would have to come up with five answers. Eventually, this grew into explaining why you chose those answers. The web site/blog is an extension of that car game…
If you would like to sign up for our mailing list or become a writer, please fill out the following form with your own list of five!

Chief Writer and Laid Back Evil Mastermind

jimm_m5bJimm, aka the DUQofURL, has had a life-long love of gathering useless knowledge and bringing it up at inopportune times.  Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Jimm (yes, that is with two ‘m’s but the second one is silent), spends his days building web sites and SEO campaigns for clients and coming up with new top five lists.  When he’s not spouting trivia, Jimm likes to dress up in armor and beat his friends with plumbing supplies in the form of a Live Action Role-Playing game (or LARP) called NERO.  He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Maggie, and their “menagerie” of Porthos the dog (as seen on the web site), and his other three musketeers, the cats: Sebastian and Cassandra.

Jimm is currently an expert writer for Bestcovery.com.
