How Social Media Saved the World

It cannot be understated that we are living through a history-making difficult time. Hundreds of thousands of people are falling victim to a global pandemic and everyone is else either staying home or acting brazenly stupid. It shouldn't be surprising, though, that one of the upshots of all of this is that there has been a rise in meme-making.

First defined by Richard Dawkins in 1976 as a cultural idea that takes on a life of its own and is passed down through generations much the same way that genes are, the word "meme" has itself taken on a life of its own to define pictures made and passed around on the Internet that often lampoon various aspects of life. I don't think I've seen any new memes in the past few days that weren't about the COVID-19 epidemic. But this isn't the first time a global catastrophe has been made fun of in what could be described as a "childish" fashion. In fact, one of the memes I've seen compared the uptick in Cor…

Introducing Piecemeal Pricing

If you go to The Green Asterisk social media page you'll find all the pricing options, and for a while, the only options that were there were plans that included a bunch of social media jobs in one.

Because sometimes you want the posts from the alpha plan, the graphics from the beta plan, and the reporting from the gamma plan, but you don't wanna pay gamma plan prices for just that. Or maybe you just wanna test out my service for a week to see how it goes, but you don't wanna pay for a whole month.

It's all covered. And the best part is that the plans are still there. So, like a McDonald's value meal, if you wanna save a few bucks, you can get the whole meal without buying the burger, fries, and drink separately.

Head on over to the social media services page and check it all out. You can even watch my commercial while you're there! (Also, ask me about making commercials for you.)
