Posting Quotes and Text in a Unique Way
One of my favorite bloggers is Austin Kleon, author of Steal Like an Artist. It’s one of the few blogs I read regularly. He does a black out poems where he blacks out words of a newspaper article to reveal a message. Like this:
What’s interesting about the way he shares quotes and text is that he often just takes pictures or screenshots of the quote. It’s a unique approach that gets a lot more engagement.
He cites a case where “Venture capitalist Chris Dixon tweeted a link to an article on how “Nikola Tesla predicted the iPhone” and got 109 retweets; when he tweeted a readable screenshot of the piece, it got over 4,200.”
