…via the Facebook page
In the first 24 hours the blog got over 150 views, which is not bad going at all considering almost all of them arrived via Facebook. The site is so new that it won’t be listed in search engine results for up to six weeks, so social media is the only way to get people to stop by and have a look. For everyone who is reading the blog, thank you! I have one or two event reports planned for this week and I hope to have an interview for the weekend.
The best way to follow the blog is via the Facebook page if you spend time on Facebook or by using the RSS feed. Or you can save this page as your home page, favourite, or obsessively keep the page open. I don’t mind!
Currently only 10% of people who read the blog also joined the Facebook page. I wouldn’t mind that number getting higher, and I’d like to see some new faces on there as well as my wonderful friends and associates. Please spread the word if you’re inclined to do so. Reasons to do so are as follows:
- It allows you to see updates and choose which to read easily
- It motivates me to produce more interesting stories for you all
- It helps out the bands, artists and event organisers that we write about
- It will help me to get cool prizes and free tickets to give away on the blog
What’s that, cool prizes and free tickets?
Yes, I would eventually like to be able to give away pairs of tickets to upcoming events, or free album copies donated by bands, sketches by artists, you name it. The more followers that blog visibly has, the easier it will be to request awesome things to pass on to you readers. A big back-scratching festival will be had by all. We’ll be some happy cats.
Competitions will likely be conducted in a similar way to the awesome DV247 Facebook page (a UK music equipment store and magazine) – opt in by commenting, or adding a caption to a photo, or similar easy activities.
So please don’t be shy about following the blog, recommending it to others that you might be interested in, commenting on the articles and suggesting bands and events for me to check out and write about.
’til next time,
