Problogger, Darren Rowse, is conveying an experiment to ‘make bloggers pitch him about why readers should hand around their (the blogggers) blog‘. And all this should be done in a pitiful 140 characters. Bear in mind that we are talking about characters here and not words!
I find this very interesting mainly because:
1) It’s a big challenge – 140 charactors to sell your blog, is very very tight. If you are able to make it, you are demonstrating good competence and motivation!
2) It’s a big opportunity to help convey your blog’s current mission statement to a wide audience – Problogger is a famous platform on the blogosphere and you should undoubtedly get noticed.
The Catching Point And The Most Crucial Point
I have been reading the responses of other bloggers and many of them have either:
1) written less than 140 charactors, some even at 94 charactors
2) Or others have simply gone slightly beyond the expected 140 characters
Now, if you want to appeal to your readers or customers and want to gain credibility, I think you should at any cost respect the requirement of that ’round’. It clearly says ‘in 140 characters’. So you should do it exactly like it’s said. Else, you simply show that you are not competent and not convincing with your blog/services.
