Sadly due to offline obligations I wasn’t able to prepare a celebratory spam for today, but I did want to take a moment to thank every one of you for following the last three years. I could never have anticipated this blog reaching over 2,400 followers let alone continue to be active and relevant in the online Sherlock Holmes community, so thank you again.
I’d also like to extend a special thank you to everyone who has contributed to the fandom regularly through screencaps, gifsets, fanworks, etc. This blog would be an awfully dull place if it weren’t for you lovely and talented fans. A tip of my hat to you all!
I thought about all this, so we want to build up a movement like the #BelieveInSherlockHolmes fans. If you type this into tumblr, you will find mostly pics and texts about “Sherlock is real and not being a fake”, and not general fan posts.
So should we now think about what we will tag with our two tags? The general “stuff” is tagged with #GranadaHolmes or #JeremyBrett.
Someone who comes from the outside (I know we not can believe it, but there are people not having heard about tumblr yet) should be delivered with one, two or three codewords (on a “business” card maybe), what guides them the way into the GranadaShow and to Jeremy Brett. (right now on the list #RememberGranadaHolmes & #BrettLives) People who are into tumblr, should get curious about the new #hashtag.
I assume everybody who ships Sherlock Holmes in some way has already came across Granada in one way or another, we just have to convince these people to look deeper!
So what I want to say is, we have to start making Art/Gifs/Words for the new movement. We can not rely on the old stuff, just tagging them with the new codewords.
Just some thoughts I had about that. What do you people think?
I did some quick examples, I can’t draw, only write a bit, and use some Photoshop.
