I’m desperate. I’m in a group of students writing blogs who have so much talent. I’m recuperating from days in bed with strep throat and I long for a comment on any of my posts. But WTF – how do I stand out?
In the three main medium I use – Web, Twitter, and Facebook (WTF) – how do I stand out? There’s a gazillion of us out there honking and blowing, tweeting and posting for attention. How do we get noticed? Even in a course that corralled us all together our topics are so varied. I’m not always interested in everyone’s topics, how can any of us be? But I do get pulled in by headlines. Except for Yahoo’s tacky headlines – another blog altogether.
So I too fall back on the back on the catchy headline. I think it comes from my journalism background. Sure it’s a little cheesy, but hopefully it worked.
According to DigitalBuzzBlog, in a 24 hour span there are:
- 2 million blog posts are written
- 4.7 billion minutes are spent on Facebook
- 864,000 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube
- More iPhones are sold than babies born!
That last one re the iPhones vs births is too funny. I have two kids and I can tell you it’s easier, quicker, and cheaper to buy an iPhone than have a baby, so WTF?
Good luck to all my classmates in COM0011. Having read some of your posts, it’s helped me through this course.
