There is an internet tradition on Twitter called “Follow Friday”, or just “#FF”, where people give a shout-out to other twitterers (tweeters? twits?) that they recommend to others.

I don’t participate. Not because I am an old curmudgeon, or at least not just because of curmudgeonliness, but because I follow a lot of people, too many to list, and I don’t want to leave anyone out.

But this particular #FF is special. Not just any twitterer, this one is actively promoting DDO every day.
DDO Central aggregates everything (and I mean everything) about DDO and then shouts it out to the world. Things that you would expect – DDO websites, Facebook pages, YouTube channels and twitter streams – but not just that. Everything. Flickr. Google+. Pinterest. Tumblr. Everything DDO-related that can be found anywhere.

Basically, DDO Central weaves together everything DDO-related, all of us, and makes us into a single, DDO-flavored roar, one that he promotes daily to his 15K+ followers.

Yes, I said 15K. 15,400 to be precise, as of today, each of which learns about everything DDO-related that any of us do.

DDO Central is probably the single most effective promotional tool pushing DDO today. Probably more effective than anything Turbine is doing. Did I mention the 15400 followers?

I wonder how many new players we have solely because of DDO Central.

My hat is off to you, DDO Central, thank you for all you do.

  1. Yip, props to DDOCentral for this. Occasionally I get to read posts that I missed first time around as they are reposted on DDO Central – always interesting to read some of the older posts in light of how things are now πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for the shout out, Geoff. P.S. DDOCentral has more Twitter followers than DDO Unlimited.

  3. Not “everything” (and no, I’m not being literal); a lot, to be sure. Dare I even say “most”. I don’t have a lot of direct links on my blog, but a while back DDOCentral did request I add them to my small link list, so I did. They do a good job of re-blogging many authors, though one small annoyance I have is when they re-blog posts written 2+ years ago, because many times the info in those old posts are no longer valid or relevant. But with 16k+ followers, they do a good job of getting the word out.

    • I repost the old content to help build up keep search words on the blog. I have watched my Alexa ranking steadily climb because of this. I also want to keep posting daily which also pushes ddocentral.com up in the search ranks.

      • Ah. Interesting – guess that makes sense. I just recall seeing a resent re-post about the Turbine-license issue with Hasbro and made me wonder ‘cuz I hadn’t heard anything recently about any issues. And it was only when I clicked to see the original post that it was the issue from a couple years ago.

        • Ah that old chestnut πŸ™‚ worth letting some of the current doomsayers see that this isn’t a new topic, hopefully make them think when they see the original post date πŸ™‚

    • Can you name anything specifically that is missing from ddocentral.com, ComicRelief?

      • Without putting too fine a point on it, me! Well, I suppose technically I am there; I went back and found myself under the ‘bloggers’ tab, but I’m not listed on the front-page bloggers roll. I was trying to figure out a way of stating it without seeming…petty, I guess is as good a word as any, but sometimes you just gotta let the chips fall where they may. Especially when some of the bloggers on the front-page roll haven’t posted anything in literally years – maybe even since you went on-line (hehehe).

        • I can’t link your blog to the WordPress DDO Blog Roll as you are using Blogger as your platform, not WordPress. Only WordPress.com sites can be linked under the blog roll template field on the WordPress platform.

What do you think?
