Last week, I tweeted about my ‘Preston nightlife‘ blog post on Elizmor’s Twitter account. I searched on Twitter for prominent tweeters based around Preston, and included them in my tweet – including BlogPreston. It was very exciting to hear back from Ed at BlogPreston almost immediately, asking if I would be available for him to come round and do an interview aboard Elizmor for their website.
It was great to be asked – and some wonderful publicity for ‘Project Elizmor’. It proves the power of social media, especially when used to highlight real people with interesting stories. After working in agencies on clients’ social media strategies, it’s a nice change to be able to use my social media skills for my own project, and see the results straight away.
Ed brought a photographer with him, Paul Melling, and Paul tweeted the above photo as a teaser – the article will be published towards the end of this week, with more photos to come.
Watch this space – I will post the link (and retweet it via Twitter, no doubt) as soon as it’s live.
