So, over the last few months, I’ve been having a blast with this site. I started this site (actually years ago and did absolutely nothing with it), but recently revamped it to be a blog since I’ve been itching to have a stomp box centric site for a while now.
Since I re-started the site, the response has been fantastic, and it’s been fun meeting great people through the site and via Twitter. Site visitors are increasing on a daily basis, and my idea of creating a community of guitar effect nerds seems to be developing. But, I feel like we can do much more.. and if you can help spread the word, that would be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping that we can get more user contributed posts (reviews and Pedal Line Friday submissions, plus more), and the only way to generate the this is by gaining a healthy visitor base to the site. I’m also brainstorming a few contest give-aways too in the near future, so keep posted for that!
What I’m asking for you, is to spread the word via social networking.
If you haven’t already or know of someone on Twitter that would be interested guitar effects, please recommend @EffectsBay
I just recently created a Facebook page for EffectsBay. We needs some fans! Become a Fan at Facebook!
Like Facebook, I recently created a Tumblr page for EffectsBay. Tumblr is still real new to me, but I can see why this is gaining popularity. Follow EffectsBay on Tumblr.
I do have a YouTube channel set up, and will be posting more videos in the near future. Currently, I only have the Swollen Pickle review there now, but I have some big plans.
