I started Nashville for Free in the Winter of 2007 as a group on Facebook. It wasn’t particularly successful, but I stuck with it, updating the news section and sending out newsletters with some frequency, but it was largely disheartening because I couldn’t seem to get over 200 members and there was very little group participation, so during spring break I decided to change boats and get Nashville for Free on Twitter.
I couldn’t have possibly imagined how well Nashville for Free would do on Twitter. I expected maybe 500 followers, a lot of work on my side, and little appreciation. As I write this I have 28,900 followers, many of whom send me tips and voice their appreciation. The success of the Twitter account has led me to start this blog, where I can post several events at once as well as reports of the events I’ve advertised that I actually participate in. I hope you find the blog helpful and enjoyable.
As always, feel free to leave comments if you feel like I’ve missed something, or if you just want to say hello. Also, you can drop us a line and send us events by emailing us at tips [at] nashvilleforfree [dot] com. If it’s something that would work best on Twitter, just send us a DM or a message to @nashforfree.
