I think that if we made a day, like Wednesday for #wipitwesnesday, asked them to tag @comicbookschool and amplified the posts, that would make it easier to organize and be a good start. We should use the existing days in the creative communities, like wipitwednesday (for works in progress); Fellowship Friday’s (highlight someone else in the community who is doing good work or who is supportive of the community), and Shameless Self-Promotion Saturday (promote your own stuff) since the framework already exists and we wouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel.
We’d also be able to tap into the power of the existing hashtags while amplifying our community. I think we’ve made it too hard on ourselves in the past by trying to make our own calendars and hashtags, posting, retweeting, and commenting schedules in the past. Use what’s already there. Maybe people are already using these hashtags and we’re just boosting them; maybe they’re becoming educated about the existing hashtags that are out there, which fits our educational mission. Either way, it would be easier than what we’ve done in the past, and likely more effective.
