I’m honestly floored by what has happened this past week on The Speech Bubble.
I started my social media outreach program by launching my Facebook page and signing up for StumbleUpon, Reddit, and Pintrest. This was my opening salvo with a renewed focus on Twitter and other areas coming soon as well. Facebook is quite an uphill battle as I quickly realized etching out a spot on that platform is going to be quite time-consuming and quite challenging. I shared my first article of StumbleUpon and Pintrest to test the waters with zero results. Again it will be something to build overtime. Then came Reddit…and all I have to say is WOW!
I posted a link to this past week’s edition of Retroactive starring The Flash & the Uncanny X-Men and what occurred was nothing short of unbelievable as the Speech Bubble not only broke but shattered the previous record for most single day views ever. Now Reddit is a platform where you can share your own personal links 2-3 times a week and is also about furthering discussion in a myriad of areas including comics. With this in mind I cautiously bided my time, commenting in other postings to support the community which had responded so well to what I put out. After three days passed I decided it was time to see if this was a mere blip on the radar or possibly the start of something truly wonderful. I posted my Retroactive feature on Legends of the Dark Knight & Daredevil and the response was not the same as the first time…it was even better.
Once again I eclipsed the brand-new single day view record! In fact the use of Reddit combined with the amount of hits I’ve been getting on my Character Spotlight of Star-Lord has already made this month in 11 short days overcome my entire monthly totals of 4 of the past 7 months. Reddit is definitely where it is at and I’m going to continue to put a greater focus on growing and commenting over there to transition that over to the Speech Bubble. I can barely contain my excitement!
