The Monthly Terra: March & April 2014
Welcome to our first instalment of The Monthly Terra! In this segment we'll be looking back on the month of activity of the Twitter account and pulling up anything of significance you may have missed during the month. There's heaps of tweets like fanart RTs that would take me forever to post here, so I encourage you to follow the Twitter yourself if you're worried about missing anything! This entry came a bit later than planned, but I hope you'll bear with us! I have no guarantee that this will remain a monthly thing either; it could end up being less or more frequent, we'll wait and see. So, with introductions sorted, let's dive in!
We'd been running a closed beta of the forums for a month before, but that date marks the point our social media presence began, and we opened the community to public access!
I personally spend a lot of time there chilling out to Key music. It's a really nice service! If you feel like being social and listening to Key music with members of the community, check it out!
Mar 24: Sora no Method PV
Mar 26: Key Bookclub Proposed
Key Bookclub is gonna be a big deal! Keep an eye on the forums and our Twitter for more information in the future. I hope to make it a big focus of the website, and help encourage people to participate in some great discussion. Stay tuned!
Apr 2: I promise a social update soon (now titled Terra Monthly). I delivered a bit late~
This was my first example of a little news update that didn't get any mention on the blog. I'll bold tweets like these that I deem worth seeing~
Apr 5: Komari Kamikita's birthday. We didn't do anything to formally celebrate this, but it made a huge stir on Twitter and inspired me to start making a big deal of Key Birthdays. There were heaps of retweets of fanart people were posting for her birthday. Here's some samples.
Apr 12: I share my Kengo cosplay~
I've been told Zen has done art for the Rewrite Light Novel and the Little Busters EX Manga, so he's pretty legit!
Apr 16: Rewrite PSP Opening Revealed
This really helped bring the community together, and together with an increase in promotion of the site, ushered in an unprecedented spike in activity!
Apr 29: Results of the Dorj-a-thon!
This is the first time I push the community to get involved in celebrating a character's birthday. We had discussion about Kengo pinned at the top of the forums for a day, everyone was encouraged to share fanart, and a bunch of retweets were made! Here's a few samples.
And lastly, a sneak peak at something brewing behind the scenes~
That sums up the first two months of Kazamatsuri.org's presence on Twitter! What did you think? Do you want to see more posts like these? Give us some feedback in the discussion thread! I hope you'll have us again for a May edition in a month's time~
