I stumbled upon a website a couple weeks ago that I can’t seem to get enough of. It is called What Should We Call Me? I originally found this website through Tumblr – and after the first few blog posts I was hooked. The site is made up of .gifs and are supposed to illustrate some of life’s most relate-able moments. The website was originally made as a portal for two female best friends to keep in touch while attending law school on separate coasts. The author’s claim that they did not expect their blog to become so popular: it consists mostly of inside jokes displayed through mini video clips. The site was created in February and already is estimated to have 1-2 million of page views every day. The students take .gifs that are already on the internet and make some themselves. You can also submit ideas to them to try and get them to post. Two weeks ago, WhatShouldWeCallMe posted their first advertisement. Now there is a button on their site for people who are interested in advertising. The girls, however, said their main goal will always be to “make each other laugh”, not profit off of the site. The story behind this site is really interesting and goes to show just HOW quickly, and publicly, things can spread on the internet! Check out the website though, it really is HILARIOUS. It is often trending on twitter, too! #wswcm or #whatshouldwecallme.
