Is Piers Morgan my social media saviour?

I’m used to my tweets going largely ignored, liked by the same few people I already know but the other day I replied to a Piers Morgan tweet and I got over 50 likes. I’m fully aware that this is nothing if you are a social media influencer but I’m fully aware that I’m not a social media influencer.

It’s made me wonder if for me to be a success on Twitter do I need to trawl through Piers Morgan’s tweets looking for opportunities to reply to him. The danger of this is that after a while of being exposed to his thoughts I might end up thinking like him.

Perhaps obscurity isn’t too bad after all.

Do you still use business cards?

I recently made a handful of business cards promoting my prongcast.
I left one of these business cards in one South London bar and it got me thinking, do people still use business cards now we’re all linked on social media?

Let me know when physical marketing (business cards, flyers, posters etc worked for you. Thanks.

Bollards & cones to Birmingham

I’m somewhat fascinated by YouTubers, partly because I know so little about them and yet they are so massive.

Take James Charles for example, who brought Birmingham to a standstill at a meet and greet due to 8000 people turning up.

I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t be able to bring Birmingham to a standstill even if I went to Birmingham with bollards & cones with the sole intention of bringing it to a standstill.

Feel free to let me know which YouTubers you would recommend to someone like me (clueless & old). Cheers

Thanks Facebook!

Thanks largely to Facebook I’ve had the recent realisation that all my creative peers have now passed me. They are either getting represented by management, doing one person shows, bringing out books, performing abroad, appearing on Radio 4 and meeting their heroes.

Perhaps the only one of my contemporaries that hasn’t overtaken me is probably Prong2 and that might only because he does a #prongcast with me.

The key to online success.

I was looking at the stats of my football blog and it appears that the most popular day came after I tweeted a link where I accidentally used #Waffordfc not #Watfordfc. Does this mean the key to online success is misspelling? Perhaps Google was meant to be Goggle and only became a global success when there was an admin error at America’s equivalent of Companies House.

Exposure

Two people I know from the Manchester comedy and poetry scene, Daliso Chaponda and Tony Walsh (Longfella Poet) have in recent weeks received TV exposure, making them known to people nationally and internationally.

Daliso was on Britain’s Got Talent, finishing third overall. Whilst Tony’s reading of his poem ‘Choose Love’ at the vigil for the Manchester bomb victims was broadcast live and has subsequently been transmitted across the world.

Both performers are talented having spent years working in pubs and clubs honing their skills but without the magnifying force of TV, when would they get the opportunity to showcase their work to such a sizeable audience?

Does this mean that despite the popularity and potential reach of social media, the only way poets/comedians can ‘make it’, is still via TV?
