James Franklin was there.
Dear readers, yesterday my life was changed for the better.
You see, yesterday, the one and only James Franklin retweeted me.
Let me give you a little background. I’m currently in a class with fellow blogger Samantha called Creative Advertising and I absolutely love it. We have assignments each week and on last Thursday we were assigned a two-week blog group project. Samantha and I, of course, decided to be partners for the project. We both come to the table with extensive blogging experience and are also a little social media obsessed, so we felt ready to take on the task.
The goal is to produce a blog that either gains the most hits or is a really great idea, or some combination of the two. We could spend a lot of time coming up with an idea or try and get something out right away. Samantha and I decide to attempt to shoot for both quality and quantity and thus “James Franklin was there.” was born. (Click that link and I will love you forever and potentially get a better grade. Oh, and tell your friends. #selfpromotion) We got some posts up and moved into phase two.
Next, we developed a marketing plan. Goal 1: Get James Franklin to tweet about our blog. Not only did we achieve this, we achieved it twice. That’s right, today he retweeted someone else (who I don’t even know) who posted about it. Samantha and I might be well on our way to some mild internet fame.
The moral of this story? I think there are several: James Franklin is awesome and people rightfully love him. Vanderbilt classes create some crazy cool projects and some fantastic experiences. Samantha and I are basically internet famous.
