Sunday Roundup – May 28

What a weird weather week. Hopefully summer is on the way, although I appreciate the lushness of all the greenery, more than a little sun would be appreciated – and soon.

What went on this week? Let’s see what we talked about:

More Than Just a Festival – a little love for the Toronto Fringe and the amazing stuff it does, going in the past few years from two weeks in July to a year round hub for artists.

Follow Me, Like Me Become a Fan and RT To Win! – post about the value of a social media contest. I confess – the title was an experiment – I wanted to see who would click on a title like that. Marketing folks did. Later in the day I changed the title, and the clicks and RTs expanded. Interesting.

A Really Cool Awareness Tool Covenant House Toronto is using something called “donate your status” to raise awareness of their org. Have a look – I think it’s both interesting and useful.
