What`s Trending | VideoAlyssa Marino | 11/30/2012
On Twitter, people use hash tags, or the pound symbol (#), to mark keywords and trending topics. Well get ready to meet the first ever living hash tag, newborn baby girl "Hashtag Jameson." Her mother reportedly posted a photo of the baby sleeping on Facebook with a caption "Hashtag Jameson was born at 10:00 last nite. She weighs 8 pounds and I luv her so much!!!!!!" It`s still unclear if this name is real or just another internet hoax but for now the people love it and this story has gone viral in less than 24 hours after surfacing. Naturally, she`s become a trending topic on Twitter using #babyhashtag. That`s a lot of hash tags in one sentence. Here`s a link of more social media-themed baby names. Trust me there`s a lot of them.
And trending locally is the Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase this weekend! Pride of Dakota is an organization full of small business owners from North Dakota who make and sell their products right here in the state. Every year they put on a showcase where vendors can bring in their home made products to show off and sell. This is the fourth annual holiday showcase here in Bismarck. This is their largest showcase with 200 total vendors registered. Kelly Wald with Pride of Dakota says, it`s really all about supporting the local community especially during the holidays. "
There are so many companies here that have a variety of things that people aren`t even aware of and so for us really to be able to help our local economy and focus on purchasing local and supporting North Dakota made products and services during the holiday season is really a big push for us.
You can also visit their Facebook page by searching Pride of Dakota or visit their website for more information at www.prideofdakota.com.
