So I know a lot of you are sad because Witty
"Isn't what it once was."
I get it.I've heard the saying "Back when I first
joined..." like, nine thousand times. Seriously. And I get
there aren't a ton of people here now adays, especially in
comparison to the 2010-2012 era.
But that's not a reason to get sad! Get excited instead! When
Witty first started, it had to fight its way to glory. It began
in 2004, without coding. Without those beautiful colors we see
today. And for years and years there were no picture quotes.
There weren't cool backgrounds, or buttons to share a quote
to another website. There was no way to reply to comments. Witty
didn't even have Witty Chat.
But you know what? Witty still made it. It made it to
three-hundred thousand users! To ten thousand faves on one quote!
Witty went through Nutella and Ed Sherran and One Direction like
phases in high school.
You oh want Witty to be great again? Make it great! Post
more often. Post good quotes. Post quotes with pretty formats. It
only takes a few minutes to copy a code and insert something into
it. Don't know what to post about? How about some poetry, or
a few words from your favorite author? Post about that guy or gal
you have a crush on. Post throwbacks from your favorite Wittians!
You can even search by year or author!
Post from tumblr too. I know that's controversial, but
back when Witty was "great" we had probably 75% tumblr
related content. Don't be afraid to borrow a text
What else can you do? Well, you can make a second account!
Make one for writing. Make one for venting. Make one that's
private. Make one where you post quotes from your favorite
Invite people! How do you think Witty got big in the first
place? Post pictures of your favorite quotes online! Screenshot
the funny ones and send them around! Post advertisements on cork
boards, along the streets, wherever you're able. Put them up
in your school, in your workplace, in the bathrooms and in
stalls! Tell your family, your friends!
We can do this guys! You just have to try! And remember,
commenting, faving, and all of those other things really helps to
encourage new users!
