The Hate Hawk
On September 13, 2013 (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Official Comedy asked Sam and I to become freelance bloggers for their Tumblog. I’m going to start using this blog to track our progress and successes.
On that first Friday, Official Comedy had about 1,250 followers on their Tumblr. Two Fridays later they have over 7,000 followers.
This is attributed mostly to this Bat Dad Vine video I posted, which currently has over 210K likes/reblogs. Admittedly I had no idea this video would take off like it did. Somebody sent me the link, I thought it was funny, and I realized I had not yet seen it on Tumblr, so I posted it. I’ve never seen a video take of as fast as this one did.
But posting other people’s content is not our main job. Official Comedy has tasked Sam and I to create original humor posts like we have been doing on our own blog, Awkward Elevator. This Hate Hawk GIF is a post we created in the first week, and now has almost 18K likes/reblogs. The ultimate goal is for us to create really great original funny posts that generate a lot of likes/reblogs and new followers. Basically, they’ve asked us to do what we were already doing for free on Awkward Elevator, but for Official Comedy…and they’re paying us.
