First of all, who are the A-list bloggers and where do I sign up to become one? Whenever I read someone mentioning the blogging A-list, it’s always accompanied by a qualifier that calls the existence of such a group into question. Is this some kind of secret society with special handshakes and eerie rituals performed in dark corridors while wearing hooded cloaks?
Or perhaps it’s performed in mom’s basement in their tighty-whities.
Either way, that’s my kind of gig. So whoever is taking roll call for the A-list, I want to be on the team. Just tell me who to redrum or who’s toe I have to lick. Do I need a sponsor? Is there a hidden pathway in the back alleys of the web? Just tell me where to start.
While we’re on the topic, we have to do something about this blog. The readership around these parts is dismal. Don’t get me wrong, the 600 or so of you that either subscribe to our feed or visit the site are very much appreciated. But, you know… I want to be in the six digits folks. What does it take to get some love?
Is it the colors? The content? The logo? Is it the writing? Be honest now, I can take it. This is only my second post so you won’t’ hurt my feelings.
I got it!
I want to be an A-list blogger and I’m getting serious vibes that you want to help. So all you social networking nerds geeks get together with your friends and SUBSCRIBE TO THIS BLOG. Do it now. Do it. Do it. DO IT!
I’ll tell you what. Anybody who gets 10 of their friends to subscribe gets $500 in cold hard Monopoly cash (don’t laugh, it’s legal currency in some countries.)
Think about it. How many new pair of tighty-whities will that buy you? You’ll be able to retire that elastic cob web strung together around your waist. It’s a win-win, baby. You gotta love it.
And while you’re at it… start speaking up. With all the lurkers we got around here you’d think that everyone’s afraid that we’ll bit their head off for chiming in. Not. Gonna. Happen.
Seriously, I know we’re a funny looking bunch (present company excluded, of course) but the folks at PPM are pretty decent folk. And they could use a few friends.
I’m not joking.
So get involved in the conversation. Introduce yourself. Tell us you agree. Tell us you disagree. Tell us we don’t know what the heck we’re talking about. And I’m sure we’ll have a few choice words for you as well.
You got your homework assignment. Go tell your friends, your neighbors and your mamma’s dog to subscribe and comment… you’ll make an A-Lister out of me yet.
