What a crazy few days this has been for the creators of GetGarnett.com.
We never expected to have this much exposure in this short amount of time. Hell, we weren’t even expecting any sort of exposure at all. We were just looking to create a site by fans for the fans. A blog that can keep the Laker fans updated on a daily bases, with articles and original content.
It all started, late Thursday night when LD2K, hZm, and I were in line to watch the midnight screening of Spiderman 3 (meh.), when they told me the idea of the website. I was immediately into it. We started throwing ideas around (some of these ideas still haven’t been put to effect, btw) on what sort of content we should have. We knew this could be something special that people would really get into.
Less then 48 hours later, I had built the website and hZm had created the images. Soon after, LD2k threw up his article and the next day he had the intro video for the website ready. We then started to post the GetGarnett.com link to all Laker forums and websites, spreading the “Get Garnett” movement, I would say.
By Monday, we were already been mentioned by two blogs.
By Tuesday, we already had over 100,000 thousand hits to the website.
However, it was on Wednesday, when the Loose Cannons had a caller (Thanks, Jamie!) who mentioned the website. . . twice! We didn’t know who the guy war nor did we tell him what to say. He believed in the Get Garnett movement enough that he wanted to give us a big plug.
LD2k immediately called my cell, screaming that somebody mentioned OUR little website on the radio. “Dude!” was the only words that I could mutter to him. This couldn’t get ANY better, we thought to ourselves.
Alright, I didn’t want to finish writing this if most of you aren’t interesting how GetGarnett.com stared, so if you guys leave me some positive feedback and are curious to know more. . . I’ll finish the article. If not, I’ll just bury this in the “lame” category.
