David-Ology 101

A great opportunity to promote David and his music – especially with BEGIN. ready to debut on August 7th! What is Ology? In a nutshell it’s a social networking site, much like Pinterest or Facebook, where you can post information like photos, vids or artwork related to any particular topic of interest.  In this case, DAVID!  You can also comment on posts to share your thoughts on the topic.  It’s meant to connect people with common interests and allow them to share information.

The Ology site is sponsoring a contest for “The Best American Idol Finalist” and David is on the list!  In case you haven’t seen the details on the contest, I’ll post them here.  Then you can click on any of the graphics to go to the page where you can sign up to follow David on Ology and earn points for him to win the contest!  Contest ends on 08/03/12 at 5:00pm EDT.

You can join using twitter or facebook so it’s easy!  You can also use an email address to create an account. Once you’re logged in, click on David’s name as shown below, then click the large orange “FOLLOW” button on David’s page.  Now you’re ready to post or comment!  There’s a short tutorial video that takes you step by step on how to post pics, vids or info on David’s page.  If posting is too involved, you can still earn points by commenting on posts that are already on the page.  Now I KNOW you guys know how to comment!  Don’t repeat your comments over and over or spam the comments because they won’t count for points.

Points are earned for David as follows:
1. Each “Follow” = 50 points
2. Each “Comment” = 10 points
3. Each “Post” = 5 points

The fastest way to accrue points is to get everyone you know to follow David’s Ology page, then comment like crazy on all the posts that are already there! If you have great pics or vids to share, please post them so we can all comment on them!

This is what the top of David’s Ology page looks like.  This is the one that counts for the contest.

The Balancing Act – 2010

Two years ago today, David was featured on the TV show The Balancing Act.  He was interviewed about his book Chords of Strength, and his explanation of why he wrote the book is both heartwarming and squish-worthy!  He loves a good striped shirt!

MaddenNFL Pigskin Pro-Am – 2010

David sang the Star Spangled Banner to open this football/celebrity event.  He looked great in his casual jeans & tee outfit, and his voice was stellar as always!

Summer Tour Cleveland OH - 2009

Three years ago today David was traveling with Demi on a Summer Tour!  He sang 11 songs and really had a great time up on stage! Here’s a look back!  Works for Me is his song and he sings it to perfection. Zero Gravity is high energy and he’s jumping and bouncing all over the stage!  Barriers and the hand motions – those were the days!

Idol Tour Rochester NY – 2008

There weren’t a lot of vids posted for Rochester – maybe everyone was too busy dancing!  Here’s Apologize where David really makes use of the entire stage – his steps punctuating each drum beat in perfect rhythm – then the hunker down!

Olympic Fever 2012!

- Even Google got into the Olympic Spirit! Thx to Pastel for the find!

Merrie Olde England plays host for the 2012 Summer Olympics & London has been transformed into a bustling sports center where athletes from around the world will display their skills and sportsmanship in pursuit of gold!  But what we really want to see is David singing the National Anthem for the US! Not to be this year, but we can hope for 2016 when the Summer Olympics will be in Rio!

David has already cultivated some Olympic connections via his performances for Pandora Skating events – David plus ice skating is perfection!  Hmmm maybe Winter Olympics!

    Linda asked me to repost these comments of hers from last night:

    LindaFromCali #DA2014 says:
    July 26, 2012 at 8:32 pm
    I had a good day today. Our DJ came in to get his Hair cut. First time there. I sat down with him and i shared everything that David had been doing here and in the phillipines. He said he wondered what had happen to him because he didn’t hear about him any more. I told him about Forevevmore and BEGIN. Mini series, where he is serving his mission . I mean i told everything he had done. He likes David ever since AI when he sang IMAGINE. I showed on my cell phone the cover of BEGIN. and what songs are on there. I asked if he could play Davids music more. He said of course. He said i just forgot about him. He said he would play songs from BEGIN. when it comes out. He can get them of itunes. If not i told him i would call him if it doesn’t get on itunes and i will personally take him a cd. I know him so i can remind him when the time comes. He was amazed at what David had been doing internationaly. I would like to share this tomorrow but don’t know how to put it on tomorrows comments. Can someone do it for me. I’m excited that he will play David music.

    LindaFromCali #DA2014 says:
    July 26, 2012 at 10:42 pm
    Josie, i forgot to say that i asked if that if i gave him a FOREVERMORE album if he would play it. He said yes he would.

  19. tami lyn says:

  20. Martha says:

    David is listed here under contributors for the movie Sparkle. Not sure what the contribution is. Any ideas?

    http://monicamania.blogdrive.com/archive/6703.html

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–that’s really interesting…..my guess is songwriting?

  22. jazzy says:

    To me it just looks like they are listing a couple of artists that have worked with Midi Mafia and David is one of them.

  23. Ali says:

    Martha – Midi Mafia is the contributor. They just put well-known musical artists that each contributor had worked with in parenthesis.

  24. Ali says:

    lol. once again I type too slow. Sorry, didn’t meant to double post that after jazzy :)

  25. Martha says:

    mlpb3 ‏@mlpb3
    @kariontour This blog lists David under the soundtrack contributions for the movie Sparkle. What does this mean? Thx http://monicamania.blogdrive.com/archive/6703.html

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @mlpb3 he is just listed under Midi Mafia: Waynne Nugent & Kevin Risto because David has worked with them before.

    mlpb3 ‏@mlpb3
    @kariontour Okay, thanks for the reply.

  26. Martha says:

    Thanks Ali and Jazzy – Unfamiliar with how they list these things.

  27. Ali says:

    LOL that Kari is on top of things!

    I wonder if David will get to see any of the Olympics? I know they’re not supposed to watch regular tv while on a mission but maybe at the mission house or whatever its called they’ll get a chance to see an event or two. Like on P Day or something. idk.

    The things my brain finds it important to think about boggle even me… hahaha

  28. kimk says:

    interesting.. nice his name was mentioned!
    would love a song of his too one day in a movie!!

  82. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Not sure I’ll be around to try and trend. I’m going to be watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics and crocheting. Making a blanket for Amanda with very soft yarn. Here’s what it will look like. http://twitpic.com/achct0
    This is a doily I recently made for a friend. Took me about a week to finish. http://twitpic.com/achdbd

  83. Janel aka Nellie says:

    And yes, all this crocheting amidst making goodies for the fan dinner and plans, plus I stamped invitations for the swim party I’m having next week for my Girl Scouts, and still doing the normal mom and grandma stuff. stick a fork in me……

  84. nora says:

    people are not tweeting the same phrase, should be Songs Of An Angel Begin David Archuleta, some are saying songs of an angel begin with david archuleta, and other things, I don’t know how to trend, or else I would let them know, maybe it doesn’t matter I don’t know

  88. Elysian says:

    Kalei- Wow! Awesome massive mega post! Thank you!

    I’ve been stopping by each day to check out comments, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to do so until the wee hours of the morning when everyone here is asleep. I therefore haven’t been posting any comments here this week. However, I signed up and tried to post comments on Ology, but as usual, I am so technologically challenged I can’t figure out how to get the comment to post. I type them in the comment box under the video I want to comment on, but is there a but or something that I have to press to make the comment post? My comments never get past just being in the typing box. I have been hitting the “like” buttons for a lot of videos, but I don’t know if that counts for points. I am HOPELESS!! Any help would be greatly appreciated! :smile:

    Anyway, I have to go now but I’ll check back later.

  89. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Aye, yie, yie. I’ve been saying Songs From An Angel Begin David Archuleta since 8pm EST instead of Songs Of An Angel Begin David Archuleta. Changed it to the right one (I hope) about 20 minutes later now they tell me we are just starting about 10 minutes ago. Help

  90. Elysian says:

    Oops! I meant to say button, not but! LOL!

  91. Anne-Marie says:

    Elysian- Hi! I had the same problem when I started commenting then finally figured out that all you do is press enter after you finish typing!

  92. sarahhazel says:

    Listening to D songs while commenting….gets me inspired and helps me find nice words to post! ;)

    Hi everyone! I was wondering where I would go about ordering #DA2014 t-shirts. I checked the OS, but they don’t have any in their merchandise. I would love to get a couple. I’ll just have to find some place that could make them for me, otherwise.

  102. Anne-Marie says:

    ABMS- Okay thanks! :)

    computer is really slow, so going to
    shut it down for the night. See ya all
    tomorrow :grin:

  104. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth. Me too I’m going to say Goodnight. Trended like a maniac and it didn’t work. Guess the Olympics is the hot topic. On the discover part of tweeter they had David’s 2 vlogs on BEGIN there and another topic about the Ology and had David’s picture meaning he was no. 1 so far. Goodnight see you all tomorrow. Lot of company coming for the weekend. Sorry Linda, I’m wiped out. This was supposed to make up for last week too. :oops:

  105. By chance says:

    Talk about archuvortex…….got stuck in Ology and coulnd’nt get out……not that I wanted to……

  106. Robin F says:

    I really appreciate David sending condolences to the victims of the Aurora shootings. It made me feel like he was there for me although I wasn’t a physical victim. All of the people here in the area are emotional victims and it will take time to heal. Thanks David! <3!!!!

  107. rarchiefan says:

    Great Post today!!! :) Just a thought havent actually tried it. Wonder if you have more than one email address if you can sign up for Ology more than once and raise those 50 points faster? Has anyone tried it yet? Maybe pass it on if it does work. :)
    Nite Yall~~

  115. Janel aka Nellie says:

    sarahhazel….LOL snippet diet. Just like real diets, I don’t understand the meaning. Ha!
    Miss Vicki, about being high on David, I’m really not sure any of the rest of us here know what that’s like. Elaborate please……after I come back from my Begin Snippet fix. LOL….. :)

  116. Marie says:

    Tami lyn – sorry, Shawn is a Catholic girl too like Jasmine. Just by reading the comments posted by some Mormons fans here on FOD , David can not marry a non Mormon which I don’t know why ? I am Catholic and it’s sad to feel like being discriminated. I have read a comment here one time before saying that she is not good as she is now if she is not a mormon. Why ? Any other faith can do the right thing ! I am just wondering how his fans in the Philippines would feel about this considering that over 90% of his Filipino fans are Catholics. Don’t we think they will get hurt too ? Sorry, just expressing my views !

  117. Pickles says:

    Marie we have had this discussion before. I often wonder if David would marry a person who is not Mormon and looking at how much he loves his faith either she would convert Because otherwise its not going to happen. I’m pretty sure David want to marry in the temple. Yea he might missed the “right” girl but if that his way I respect him just like he respects us. David has never shoved on our faces his religion or like more his Mormon fans than his non Mormon. He truly likes each individual because that how David is.

  118. Anita says:

    Linda-Oh! Thank you soooo much for the phone number! I’ll give them a call.

  119. kimk says:

    Marie not lds but read that Mitt Romney’s wife Ann converted before he came home on his mission.. that seems to have worked out very nicely.

    Pickles love that he doesn’t push things on us.. one of the many reasons I like him. but saying that it would be ok if he did a little of that with his music.

    speaking of that saw a very interesting article posted in The Voice today.
