I have been searching around for links referring to MyDenmarkTV and I was really happy to have found a brief review by National Geographic Traveler.
Thanks to Kelly Corrigan from National Geographic Traveler who reviewed the MyDenmarkTV project and shared her review on the National Geographic Traveler website. This is what Kelly wrote:
While this site virtually takes you to such places as the Copenhagen Opera House and the University of Copenhagen, its three hosts—Katie Rice, Liyuan, and Julie Tran—also explain the ins and outs of daily life in Denmark, such as recycling habits, the drinking culture, cost of living, and the library system”.
We are glad to know that our efforts have been spotted by National Geographic and it is definitely a big honor for the whole team also because what Kelly wrote is exactly what we are doing i.e. not only showing you the places but everyday life things while being in Denmark.
More importantly, and as our advisor, Paul Tyler mentioned “What’s really nice is that they talk about you [MyDenmarkTV] in terms of a TV show and not a website. The language is TV not so much web (which is the way the Internet is going…i.e. more audio visual and ironically more linear content) for example they mention ‘hosts’ and ‘takes you’. It’s this kind of language that I’d argue should be used, making a virtue out of the fact that this is ‘sit back and be entertained’ television whilst also informing and educating – all very Reithian.”
Just wanted to share and stay tuned!
Yes, we broke through with Google PageRank!
This blog post is a little bit technical and has not so much to do with the show per se, but it does show how popular and important our website is becoming in the cyberspace.
I just looked up for our PageRank and discovered that as of today Google ranked us as 3, which I think is a great start to indicate a good quality content site given our 5 month existence.
But again this has nothing to do with the show. It is just something I wanted to share on our blog and perhaps show that MyDenmarkTV website is raising its bars before the God father i.e. Google. And we are happy!
Of course most importantly stay tuned for more episodes to come on MyDenmarkTV.
Our team continually ask of people as to what they think about our bloopers (FYI: bloopers are those [usually] funny endings we have at the end of each show). We started using bloopers since Episode #2. The reason why we ask people for their feedback is because some of us think that they work well, whereas others think it is a bit too much.
I have personally heard from people that bloopers add that personal touch to our show. Also, some time ago, I asked our followers on Twitter whether they like our bloopers or not . The response was quite interesting. People responded that they like them. One of such response was by soeren2009 who wrote “@MyDenmarkTV love the bloopers. Keep them coming”.
At one of recent shootings, I asked another show guest of ours on what he thought about the bloopers. Without any hesitation or doubt, he replied – “I love them. They are really nice”. While we keep our bloopers, I thought I should ask you for your opinion about that. What do you think? Do you like the bloopers? Or would you want the show to end on a more serious note. If you remember some of the recent bloopers (or all), which one did you think was the most fun to watch or which one you thought was a bit too much. This should definitely help us make some adjustments. Thanks for your input.
