Show Your Work! – Austin Kleon: Page 0
FYI => I’m just getting around to consuming Austin Kleon – “Show Your Work! (10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered)”. For those who are not familiar with Kleon, he is said to be a hit at media hipster heaven, aka SXSW.
=> Two things:
1) Says the cover:
—”10 ways to share your creativity and get discovered”
—From the author of the New York Times bestseller “Steal Like an Artist”
2) Given the amount of consuming (i.e., in this case, reading) I do, I thought this would be a good time to experiment with Pinterest. In my mind, Pinterest is strictly visual. I know, #Duh. However, if I highlight text and snap a photo of those words of wisdom, those words then become visual and that can be posted to Pinterest.
Granted, probably not Pinterest’s sweet spot per se. Then again, it does have a board type of Quotes. If you’re interested, you can follow the board here:
Also, in terms of posting elsewhere (e.g., Facebook), I’m hoping the page by page images (of highlighted text) have a higher share-ability rate than just repeating the cover.
