Going viral ...

Thanks to Tobey King for providing the picture and Bernie’s Mittens Pattern, really great handcraft and available so fast. 

I have seen in my calendar lately that the 2nd anniversary of my BLOG passing the #100k overall reader for the 1st time is on 29-Jan-21. Would be GREAT to pass #500k reader just 2 years later, but with 6 days left and another 30,610 readers to go to reach this goal, this seems to be impossible 😠. 

The only chance is to go VIRAL 😉 - "On the internet, however, a piece of content can spread just like a virus if people become “infected” when they see it. The infection usually comes from evoked emotions that spur the viewer to share it, so they can relate with other people and discuss how they feel."


The two latest examples are Bernie Sanders and Amanda Gorman, both have been at the historic inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

  • Bernie Sanders due to his clothing and mittens, with a photo that did go viral like crazy:

    • "Good environmental policy is good economic policy." -- Bernie Sanders,  American - Politician Born: September 8, 1941
  • Amanda Gorman due to reciting her poem "The Hill We Climb":
    • "The Hill We Climb" poem
    • TED Talk: Using your voice is a political choice
    • "Poetry is a weapon. It is an instrument of social change...and poetry is one of the most political arts out there because it demands that you rupture and destabilize the language in which you're working with. Inherently, you are pushing against the status quo. And so for me, it's always existed in that tradition of truth-telling." -- Amanda Gorman
