Happy New Year Cal Family!

Welcome to 2022, Cal Fam!
We know 2021 was a bit of a rough year for us on the field. But we have an Axe, and a ton of memories to cherish after a long year-and-a-half away from each other.
We talked about how you helped us get to 2000+ followers on Christmas (and thank you to our 15 new subscribers since then!), but we have a few last quick 2022 social tasks for you to help us grow back our community.
We’re trying to rebuild our social channels to improve our reach, and return our numbers back to where we were with the original California Golden Blogs.
It’s a quick two-step process.

Unfortunately, we lost our old Facebook page during the transition from Vox, which had upwards of 30,000 fans.
Facebook is a tough platform to grow on its own these days. Since a ton of our old social engagement and organic growth came from Facebook in the later years, we could use some help from you to help accelerate our growth.
We are also trying to grow our Instagram following as well as we venture into more visual content. If you have an Instagram, please give us a follow!
I expect almost everyone here follows us on Twitter (because we kept that account!), but in case you don’t…
We’re also experimenting with LinkedIn! Yeah, weird. We haven’t really figured out this channel yet, but more followers here and we can really try and expand our reach to the professional UC Berkeley community as well.
No, we are not doing TikTok yet. Maybe one day.
Finally, here is a list of some of our current contributors on Twitter. We do encourage you to follow them if you get a chance.
And sure, you can follow me too, I tweet Cal things sometimes.
Please try and follow us as soon as you can! The sooner we hit critical mass on all our socials, the less likely it is we send these email reminders.
Happy 2022 Cal Family!
