Above: Catskills slogans generated by the collective hive-mind via the #catskillsslogans hashtag on Twitter. We designed some of them into T-shirts. Because they're awesome. (If you'll give us permission, we'll make a T-shirt out of yours, too. Buy any of the tees on our Spreadshirt online store.)
Yesterday, the Watershed Post's Andrea Girolamo created a monster: A crowdsourced effort to come up with new slogans for the Catskills on Twitter.
Inspired by our story about the Catskill Park Resource Foundation's $1,500 contest to come up with a slogan to rebrand the Catskills, Andrea decided to try some re-branding herself, via social media. Her first few slogans:
That was enough to start an avalanche of sloganeering across the Twitterverse. In 24 hours, the #catskillsslogans hashtag had generated "442 tweets; 460,494 impressions, reaching an audience of 82,079 followers," according to Ivan Lajara at the Daily Freeman and a Twitter stats analyzer called HashTracking.com.
We love them all, but here are some of our favorites:
"Hipsters' Alps," by Andrew Green.
"What's up in Downsville," by Titleixbaby
"The Black Bear Belt," by Jen @CountyWeekend
"Creeks, peaks and geeks," by Jennifer Strom.
"From dairy to dharma," by Monica Roman Gagnier.
"All my neighbors are bears," by Ariel Zangla.
"Where rocks have snot," by Ivan Lajara.
Er, in fact, we liked some so much we designed some T-shirts out of them. (See left and above.) If you'll let us make a T-shirt out of yours, let us know. (Click here to see the shirts in our online Spreadshirt store. $3 from each purchase supports the Watershed Post.)
If you've got your own slogan to add, put a comment on this post or add 'em to the Twitter pile-on. Or enter that slogan contest!
