… or at least I hope it will.
Yesterday, brought some very exciting news that my last post had been featured on The Mighty – the online disability magazine. Cue several hours of not sleeping because I was excitedly clapping on twitter about this, then rich tea biscuits. Because, well, Twitter.
Today, continues in this over-excited vein with our Thunderclap Campaign nearing it’s end (3rd April) with a current 88% support rate and 4 days left to run. That’s 12 people I need to convince to pledge a (free!) support message via Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. This is technically easier said than done.
The first day was very exciting with over 25% support, this went up for over 40% by day 3. But then it slowed. We’d run out of people to reach via our own social channels and had to let the campaign simmer over the next 2 weeks (you have 14 days to collect 100+ supporters). Things picked up again, the past few days, immensely so after a bulk email of our first ever newsletter for Expect Zebras. But I’m twitchy again. That feeling you get at the end of an Ebay bidding war where there’s just seconds left and you could lose that prized item if you don’t watch it like a hawk is there (can you just imagine what this is doing to my POTS?!).
So there we are. Whilst Mr Geek continues to talk the app into playing nicely with our database where I have been furiously adding chronic illnesses, their awareness colours, and lists of potential medications that people want to record, I am set the challenge for the day to get our Thunderclap 100% supported.
Would you help? Please??!
