It’s good news week
Dontcha just love good news, dontcha? dontcha? I’m a sucker for it – especially when it is about social media. Here’s another feel-good story with a social-media twist. My last post shared two others.
Meet Ted. Ted has a rich, smooth, chocolate voice. A voice that you could just sink into. Strong, yet comforting. His is a sad story but one that would soon change for the good. It was just Wednesday that a reporter in Ohio discovered him homeless, ‘selling’ his voice to feed himself. He videoed him and uploaded it to YouTube. Guess what – it went viral. His rich tones were heard around the world and offers of voice-overs started to pour in. Click the video clip for the whole story.
That got me thinking. We hear so many negative stories about social media being used inappropriately, so how about sharing some good news.
I’ve started a Twitter hashtag stream #somesogood. Go on – share some good news in 2011.
Update – what happened to the man with the golden voice?
Check out my recent post to find out how Ted is doing 10 years on.
