Love in an elevator

Day 1: Elevator Pitch

Write an elevator pitch for your blog-

 

  • Your
    short pitch should be no more than 150 words
  • Be
    clever, but be clear. Stand out, but stay on point
  • Don’t
    over promise. Be confident, but stay away from hyperbole. World’s best
    coffee usually turns out to be fairly crappy
  • Writers:
    show, don’t tell. Some pitches and taglines promise “funniest blog ever”
    then write consistently about the most mundane, unfunny topics. Don’t be
    that blogger
  • Prepare
    a longer pitch just in case. You never know when someone will want to know
    more. Your longer pitch should be tailored to a very specific audience:
    who are you trying to reach? No, don’t say “everybody” or “anyone who
    will listen”

    I liked the longer one better to help me understand what your blog is about, but then I liked the short tagline also once I got it.

    I haven’t and now I definitely want to. I love that you used the word “oodles.” It adds a wonderful friendliness to your pitch. I love how you structured the second to last sentence. Who couldn’t say “YES!” to that?

    I loved the if, if, if rhythm in the longer pitch!
