Its great to see shows that are innovative and wacky. I’m starting to become a fan of the wazzup show even though I guess I’m not part of the “target audience”. I’m glad to see that they also started to venture into alternative channels such as blogs. I was watching the show last night and I got interested to see what’s their blog all about. I was filled with anticipation and can’t wait to see what’s in it. I was hoping for a more interactive site where the show’s hosts are able to interactive with their audience. However, I was disappointed that the Ka-blog site looks exactly the same as the official website. It features the same show synopsis and some more pictures of Drew and Iya. Not to mention, that the blogs looks exactly the same as the blog of its creator coffee addict’s blog jologs with style. The blog is still young which started last January 23 and there are alot of room for improvements.
In any case, here are my 2cents worth on how to improve the wazz-up blog:
1. Inside Scoop. Can we have more thoughts from Drew, Toni, and Vhong on their day to day life or commentaries from the host on the inside scoop of the stories they featured in wazzup? I’m starting to be a fan of Toni and I’m hoping to get more of her personality in the wazzup blog.
2. Wazzup Bloggies. I’m amazed at how the young started to blog and I’ve seen alot of “a day in your life” blogs and I haven’t anyone particularly interesting enough to subscribe or visit it often. Except for some that is worth of mention: Jakee’s photoblog — great pictures and Superbianca who have been blogging since September 2003. One great idea is that they own a bloggies segment where they would feature blogs (oldest blog, coolest photoblog, etc.) and then at the end of the year, they hold a pinoy bloggies on the best blogs in the Philippines.
3. Audioblog/Videoblog feeds. Even if Toni and the hosts does not have the time to log in an article/post in the blog, maybe they can start to audioblog so that the fans can hear them talking and relate to them on a personal level. Of course, the audio commentaries should be about what they like or don’t like or what didn’t work in the show. Another idea is to post a video blog on the bloopers of the show and invite the fans and blog readers to comment and have fun.
I’m starting to like the show but there are just some jokes that does not work or “pilit” and maybe through the wazzup blog we can contribute to the improvement of the show.
BTW, Congratulations to Toni for being a member of the ABS-CBN Kapamilya and Kabarkada mo.
