So yesterday I told you we had 111 Mxit users. As of right now we have 3595 – due to the awesome kickstarter ad campaign which advertises your app to Mxit users for free for a certain period.
I’ve been inundated with messages and comments from users – all of which need to be answered, in detail, with my whole head and heart. I expected some level of “spam” comments or people making negative remarks but the percentage of those has been tiny compared to the volume of teens with real, valid concerns.
I admit it’s been a little difficult navigating my way through the SMS speak! Sometimes it feels like I’m reading Chinese. Most are not writing in their home language, all of them have taken the time to actually DO something about their concerns instead of living in denial, and all of them need to be heard and reassured.
So. What are we going to do tonight? Same think we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world… ?
Had a cool E News interview with dear Lester Kiewit this morning. After a hectic few days trying to coordinate, we finally did it at my office. Yesterday I did the teen pregnancy workshops at Fisantekraal Secondary School – more on that later when I have some pics ready to show you.
I am TIRED I tell you. Tired, overwhelmed, a little sad that there are so many people out there who need help. But happy that I’m doing something about it.
And it’s becoming more and more obvious that I need to be available full time. Which means ditching the day job and losing my salary………………. ja. Enough said.
In the meantime…. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
