So, I’ve carefully read The Perfect Pitch: Developing Your Blogging Voice. I’ve done this week’s Photo Challenge (it’s here and it’s freaking weeeeeiiiiiird), and I’ve participated in today’s Zero to Hero Challenge of more commenting and more reading. I’ve been doing everything that the Dark Blog Sith Lords tell me to do, and it’s working. I have new followers every day.
So now what?
Well now it’s you turn.
I challenge you.
(I’m imagining something like this just happened.)
If I were some sort of strange bear/anteater hybrid, this is what I would look like as I welcomed you all here with open arms.
Alas..I am not some sort of strange bear / anteater hybrid, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that if I were, I would definitely also talk and regale you all with my stories as well as read some of your favorite posts aloud. I’d also have opposable thumbs and would be carrying a bottle of Laphroaig single malt and a tray of glasses for you to partake in the delicious brown liquid. Or if you prefer margaritas, I could make them, for I would have opposable thumbs. Also, it’s likely scientists would be hunting me to study me, so I may need for you to kill some people to protect me.
If I were a bear / anteater hybrid.
Which I’m obviously not.
Anyway, now dear readers, the fruits of my typing and synonym searching labor, now I’d like to ask a favor of you…
I want some feedback.
I love being followed, and having people like my posts, but I would love to interact with you all so much more. I want to hear your thoughts after reading the post and then tell you you’re wrong for not agreeing with me. I want to hear your opinion on the layout of the blog, and then tell you to mind your own business. That it’s my blog, and I’ll do what I want to. I want to hear about the first time you realized that I would, indeed, be on your Holiday Card list, and then I want to tell you I don’t care about Holiday Cards, and that you should just send cash to my paypal account so I can get what I really want.
You know…like real friends you guys!
I want to keep the small following that I have engaged and waking up with baited breath in anticipation for the moment that I will post something in all of the humbleness that I have just presented to you with this sentence.
That’s right.. ALL of that humbleness.
You can start, by going over to this week’s Tuesday: Picture Poll and voting. I have like 12 “likes” for the post, yet only 9 people voted. I don’t like to brag, as clearly stated in my last humble remark, but I am pretty good with math, and something doesn’t add up here.
Head on over to the “Spill Your Guts” comments section of this post, or any post and let me know you’re alive and well, and to be quite frank…slightly coherent.
** Ley, my loyal and steady commenter, is excused from this exercise, although he always has some great comebacks, so I hope he doesn’t sit it out. ****
