In case you missed it, we recently launched Reverb collections, a quick and easy way for you to collect articles on your favorite topics, share them with friends, and, via Reverb’s recommendations, to deepen your knowledge and discover even more.
We here at Reverb are so excited about collections, we decided, in the spirit of March Madness, to hold our own collection-making tournament.
Here’s how it worked: in 30 minutes we made as many collections as we could about anything we wanted, and then tweeted those collections with the hashtag #collections.
Out of the 30 collections that were created, an Elite 8 were selected:
- Bay Area Weekend
- Absurd Creatures
- Buffet’s Billionaire Bracket
- Top IGN Stories
- Beloved Children’s Books and Authors
- Smash the Patriarchy
- Steve Byrne (In case you’re wondering, like some of us were, Steve Byrne is an actor and stand-up comic.)
And here’s how it played out:
And the top four winners in non-bracket format:
- 4th Place: Steve Byrne
- 3rd Place: Buffet’s Billionaire Bracket
- 2nd Place: toooonz
- Winner: Absurd Creatures
Congratulations to all the winners!
But that’s not all. In addition to votes, another prize was available for whomever’s collection was retweeted by an account with at least 10,000 followers. The first winner was —

Now it’s your turn. On the theme of what March Madness means to you — spring cleaning frenzy? cuckoo weather? or hey even sports? — create a Reverb collection and tweet it, making sure to include the hashtag #collections. Every Friday we’ll pick our favorite and award the creator with some lovely Reverb schwag!
