Analytics and metrics can sometimes be fun, and other times discouraging. Earlier this year, MMM went through this marvelous period where readership via website, mobile, and RSS just continued to pick up. It was amazing to see for a number of months, and really helped drive a lot of the content that was being generated here. And then just it flattened out a bit. Not sure what all was the reason, but we kind of got to a plateau and it was just kind of… blah. It seems like we are back on the upswing now, and it seems to be happening from different sources. One of the latest of these streams is Pinterest.
Pinterest is a social network that’s based on the cork-board-and-picture idea. You see something online that you like and then you pin it to your board to share with people who might have similar likes. Tag those items and other people can see what you’ve pinned.
What I saw the other day is that there’s a set of pins out there for items posted from MMM. There aren’t many items, but that did get me to thinking about creating a few more media assets, and making it a bit easier to link to others done previously, so that those looking at this intersection of faith and tech, but coming visually, can have a bit of something to work… er pin with.
So, with that now said, and if you are visiting from Pinterest, what kinds of graphics from MMM would you like to see so that you can pin?
Sidenote: we do publish sketchnotes from various presentations/conferences (for example, here are a few from the latest ICCM USA Conference Sketchnotes Mobile Apps BOF,Spiritual Reboot Keynote, Intro Sketches), these would be suitable for pins.
