The Story Behind the "New Website"
It was 11:59 a.m., and I was wondering why I wasn't getting sales. Then it hit me.
So I decided to hit up everyone that I knew (and didn't know) on social media. On the first day, no response. The birds were chirping, and the lullaby played. On the second day, I actually got a basketball player to like my DM!
I sat my dorm, trying to stragetize. I thought, "Hmm, it would be cool if Jalen and Joshua (the fraternal twins) would be models for Witches of Watts. Sivina and Derrica would look rockin' together for Scribble. Tarik, he videotaped a mini-commercial for me in highschool. Maybe?"
But I was scared. I lost in touch with the twins, and I haven't seen Derrica since my cousin, Monica's, birthday.
I breathed and mustered up the courage:
Hi, I am looking for people to help me shoot a couple of photos for my website www.ourscribbles.com. Shooting will take place on Jan 5th at USC's Marshall School of Business from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. A breakfast will be provided.Tell me if you are interested.
Everyone shown me some real love out on social media ! The power of social media is awesome, I tell you that. Connections that I thought was lost never had been. They were there all along.
The shot went well with a room change and few minor complications. Everything went great, and the pictures came out (as you can see) AMAZING!
