So somebody asked me the other day if I was a Power Blogger, and I didn’t know what that was, so I said, “Yes.” Because (and you should know this), if I said, “No”, then the woman in the check-out line would want to know what kind of blogger I was – and until that moment in time, I wasn’t even aware that there were categories of blogger. Really? If there are Power Bloggers, are there also Weakling Bloggers and Super Bloggers and Almighty Bloggers?
Glynn hopes there are. When I told him about this, he walked around the house, saying “I am an Almighty Blogger!” in a terrible, faux-Scandinavian accent. Which gets irritating surprisingly quickly, I’m telling you now.
When I returned home, I Google’d “power bloggers”. It turns out, these are people who use Twitter and Instagram and Facebook and WordPress post sites with amazing frequency. I mean, they’re offering new material constantly. Some of them offer tips to other power bloggers – did you know there are blogging conferences? And that you should never post on “low audience” subjects? Many of these people are even making a living at it.
Good for them, I say.
Discovering new tidbits by the moment, I learned that posts with images attached do better than those without -- so I'm pretending the guy above is Glynn and whenever the real Glynn shouts, "I am an Almighty Blogger!", this is who I'm picturing -- and I learned that Sundays are a lousy day to post a blog. Since Sunday is my current new-post day, well, it’s time I made a change. (It’s the only change I’m willing to make so far. No Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or WordPress for me.)
See you on Wednesday.
