Oddly Specific Playlists
Welcome back to Oddly Specific Playlists!
Oddly Specific Playlists is a project that aims to create an online space for music lovers, provide entertainment or emotional support for users, and generate little extra exposure for lesser-known artists. My project continues to achieve these goals as I receive anonymous confessions/requests and create curated playlists inspired by them and promoted on Instagram.
I’m pleased to report that this project functions and has user interest, as initially I was cautious to work on a DA which so heavily depends on user interaction. I wasn’t sure it would abide by #FIST, however I have made iterations such as a limit of 10 songs per playlist to try to keep this project as fast, simple and tiny (inexpensive hasn’t been a concern of mine as of yet).
My project follows a feedback loop to ensure I am ideating towards addressing the needs and wants of my users – a process which is particularly important for my project, as my content largely depends on the engagement of my users.
Going forward, I’ll continue to address problems and find solutions. I’d like to grow my user base and encourage more active interaction. This may be achieved through a more consistent posting schedule, a possible platform change and lots and lots of brainstorming!
