So, so far on my contribution to the Soundcloud community I haven’t had much interaction aside from what I forced a few friends to comment, as well as a ‘repost’ from a spam account. How reassuring.
To expand on this, I decided to create an Instagram account and use the band’s Tumblr account to interact with more people online, taking inspiration from week 8’s reading, by following others, as well as interacting with their posts by liking and commenting on both platforms. The goal of this is to offer others something, ie attention to their blogs and posts, in return for the same thing on the band’s blog which will hopefully lead to more listens on our Soundcloud account. The plan for this as well is to maybe create memes that make sense within the genre to post among the material that is relevant to the band.
