I’ve always loved basketball and last semester I ran a basketball-based Instagram page where I regularly posted updates on scores and news. This semester I’m changing my approach and I’m focusing on building my confidence and video skills through YouTube as well as using my current basketball-based Instagram page as a platform to promote my videos.
It will be an NBA discussion channel where I talk about a certain topic each week. I’m aiming to keep the videos relatively short (usually 4-6 minutes) as it will hopefully keep the audience engaged and maintain their attention.
Because of the increasing popularity of Instagram stories, I will predominantly be using this feature of Instagram to promote my videos whilst using Instagram posts to keep viewers up-to-date with NBA news and opinions.
My digital artefact doesn’t necessarily fit the FIST concept but basketball and social media are two aspects of my life that I have a huge passion for and I want to showcase that passion to the online world.
I’m also using Reddit at the moment to help with ideas for videos but it hasn’t been going so well. Hopefully once I post some content in subreddits then I’ll gain some feedback and we’ll be on the road to success.
