You don’t become a social media superstar by asking people if they would read this story.
I suppose if you shared a story about Plenty of Time and told people it is about how we never have as much as we think you might get somewhere…maybe.
And I would certainly never encourage you to read a post called The Five Dumbest Dad Bloggers either.
I suppose you might ask me why I keep linking to some of my older posts and I would tell you…because I can.
And because some of them are worth pointing out to those who haven’t seen them before.
Heck, many of the links in The Red Dress Club archives have some substance to them, I am proud of much of that fiction.
But this post is supposed to be another short place holder I used to keep the content flowing here.
That is because the blogosphere is a mean beast that requires consistent feeding and if you don’t feed the beastie the wee lads and lassies stop wandering by.
Guess I am not as good at disconnecting as I want to be or maybe I am sort of nervous about getting through the next two days.
BTW, if you are interested in reading some stuff and want more guidance than just a link to the archives you can try this.
How To Become A Social Media Superstar
If ever there was a title designed for linkbait that one is it.
I teach my children to own our work and to be proud of what we do. I also teach them to recognize some moments and some actions won’t make us proud.
The goal is to minimize those.
As for using linkbait, well I am not ashamed or proud of doing so. I use whatever tools I can to make things work here.
Part of that involves testing things out, like the new Postmatic system. I am thrilled with it, just check outÂ It Is What Every Blogger WantsÂ and the days since and all I see is increased engagement and more subscribers.
More importantly I see community starting to build again and that makes me happy.
The ability to comment through email has been awesome and that is how I kept in touch for three days without a computer.
I’d share more but I am up against it timewise so I’ll have to cut this piece short and say I hope I see you in the comments.
