I cover the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival every year. My audience grew as the anticipation for the lineup announcement grew. Since so many people found my content by searching when the organizers would announce the lineup, I looked at historical data and made two graphics--one charting when the lineup had been released in prior years and one that was a simple bar graph looking at the frequency of which days of the week were the most popular for the lineup release. I then took the images of the charts and added them in Thinglink to create more engagement opportunities for the reader. It has been shared more than 2,500 times on social media.
