This weekend I am hosting a workshop on Cake that I think will be of interest to a lot of people. I’ve been helping a few people here with writing more effective titles for their conversations. I’ve also made recommendations on the best topics to add for each conversation. And I’ve seen higher engagement in both responses and reactions to those conversations.
I hate when a good conversation starter dies because it wasn’t optimized for high engagement. And I wanted to help anyone who was willing to share a draft post for feedback. Everyone who signs up here will be invited to a private panel. You can ask for specific advice just on the title, the topics, your opening paragraph, the right picture to include, formatting, what to write about, or all of the above.
I can’t guarantee that your conversation will be featured or go viral, but I think you’ll learn something useful.
If you’ve been lurking, waiting for the right time to create your first conversation, this is a great opportunity to do a test run.
I’ll be inviting some amazing Cake writers to join our panel and share their thoughts if they have time.
Want to sign up? Reply with a “Heck yes” and you’re in.
Want to volunteer and share what you’ve found helpful in creating your conversations? Reply with the word “Volunteer”.
Questions? Just hit reply and ask.
Starts Saturday morning and ends by Sunday 5pm (New York City time, GMT-5). Join in when you can, leave when you want to.
Once you join the panel, you’ll get notifications of all new posts to the thread. So you can post your draft on Saturday morning and then check back in on Saturday afternoon or evening.
Only invited panelists can post. Posts are publicly viewable, but non-panelists can only “applaud” with emoji reactions.
The panel will be locked from further posting on Sunday evening at five o’clock, so be sure to get your thoughts in before then.
