7 Reasons Why You Will Read This Post

Ok, here are seven reasons why you will read this post:

  1. Lists are the best kind of linkbait. People can’t help but read them. They are short and easy.
  2. Now that you read item one you might as well look at the next so onto number three.
  3. There might be a giveaway, ya know, free stuff and who doesn’t like free stuff.
  4. Well, I don’t like free stuff or should I say that I don’t like administrative work so I rarely do giveaways.
  5. But if I did do one I’d like it to be cool.
  6. The sixth reason why you will read this is because, yes just because.
  7. Number seven is simple. You came this far, so you might as well go the distance.

And that my friends leads me in a new direction in which I tell you that if you want to last at this game- if you want to be the blogger that outlasts the other you need to do this because you love it. Or at bare minimum you need to do this because you like it.

Really, if you don’t like it than there is no reason to keep it up. Surely you have other things to do with your time, more important things…don’t you.

Of course I am a bad example as I post with ridiculous frequency so who am I to say anything about anything. Stay tuned to this bat channel- more stuff coming shortly.

    Chana- it is the usual story. If you comment here and there and keep writing people stick around. Out of sight out of mind. If I stopped writing this joint would turn into a ghost town in a week.

    Clever. And yes, you sucked me right in with your list!

    You crack me up. Thanks for commenting on my blog – I haven't done anything with it in ages. I had decided no one was paying attention so I lost interest. So I guess I was doing it for the attention, LOL.

    Hope you're well.

    I clicked on it because of the title. I am a sucker for catchy titles!

    This post reminds me of this:

    Sonnet – Billy Collins

    All we need is fourteen lines, well, thirteen now,
    and after this one just a dozen
    to launch a little ship on love's storm-tossed seas,
    then only ten more left like rows of beans.
    How easily it goes unless you get Elizabethan
    and insist the iambic bongos must be played
    and rhymes positioned at the ends of lines,
    one for every station of the cross.
    But hang on here wile we make the turn
    into the final six where all will be resolved,
    where longing and heartache will find an end,
    where Laura will tell Petrarch to put down his pen,
    take off those crazy medieval tights,
    blow out the lights, and come at last to bed.

    Lists are great when you're suffering from bloggers block.
