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.
It is not really a birthday but as the title speaks it has been 2 months since the launch of MyDenmarkTV.com, which is hard to believe.
And I just wanted to take a minute and reflect upon what was going through our minds when we started on this project.
But before I do, I just want to say that it feels a bit awkward as though we have had the show running forever and on the other hand as if it we started last week. I could never explain this strange feeling.
Anyways, when we started the project 2 months ago we wanted to create something new and different. We did not want to be another information site. Yes, we wanted to be informative, but we wanted to present information in a different format. After all, if ones wants to find practical information he or she can read it on many existing sites out there including message boards and blogs. It is not that we had something against those platforms, no. We love them. It is just more that we wanted to create a bit more refreshing “outlet” of showing and sharing our own experience of living in Denmark.
And as it shows we are happy to have received a lot of positive feedback. In fact, we’ve put together a page “What Others Say” where you can read why people like MyDenmarkTV show. Thanks to all those who took the time to share their feedback. We really appreciate your time and it means a lot to us to keep going.
Here we go! Finally, our blog is here where we will be freeing our some thoughts out, sharing some great resources, providing screencasts of useful websites and much more.
To begin with I just wanted to very quickly remind you that as of now, MyDenmark TV weekly show contains 5 segments, which are:
1. Did you know? – One fact about Denmark.
2. Everyday Life – Practical tip and/or piece of advice.
3. Culture & Food – Intricacies of the Danish culture and food.
4. Study & Work – This section is for those who want to study or work in Denmark
5. Fun & Entertainment – Fun stuff to do in Denmark.
The host of the show is Julie Tran. Update! In Episode #5 we will be introducing Katie Rice as a co-host to Julie. So stay tuned in as there will be lots of interesting things to share about.
Reminder: The show is absolutely free and the viewers can ask us a burning question, the answer to which may appear in the next episode. We are thinking of even introducing different prizes for asking questions. Is not that cool to get something valuable and get your question answered all with one shot?
It was just a brief update and from now on you can and should visit this section more frequently because it will the place for periodic updates of the things not covered in the show itself. And we will of course all (team members of MyDenmarkTV.com) try to update the blog.
Thanks once again for checking out the Blog. And see you soon for Episode #4 – Special edition – culture and food (hint-hint: Julie’s friend invited her and some other friends over for a typical Danish lunch and outdoor grill dinner)
