When You Put It Like That…

Here’s the article that you must read, today.

Write Epic Sh*t.

Three little words. It makes it sound so easy right? You came to the internet, bought a domain, got a little space, and it was the same as a blank piece of paper and a pen in front of you.

With 1,000 people/day looking over your shoulder.

No pressure!

You’re a writer. So write. And write with an impact that will blow minds, save worlds, free countries, change lives.

Or post pictures of food you’re cooking and yoga you’re doing.

Not everyone can spend the time it takes to learn about and provide SEO tips (or explain to little people like me that SEO doesn’t even matter on a wordpress hosted blog).

But man is there a market. There are so many bloggers out there if you are looking for them, telling you tips, tricks, and ideas to grow your Twitter followers, your Facebook brand, and your website. It’s easy to get too caught up in it all.

For the most part, they have it all wrong. This article tells you to stop trying those little “tips”. No amount of strangers on Twitter are going to click a link they don’t care about. I’ve met some neat internet buddies, for example thank goodness for Gina Begin and Stephen Weiss (and HOW I MOUNTAIN!). People, internet people, who take action on your message. I just need to take that message from mediocre to epic. Got it. Working on it.

My tip would be don’t forget to return the favor! That interaction, with others who are writing and trying to make a site work, that matters! If someone reaches out to you, take the time to say thanks in the best way you can. Comment on my blog, and I’ll try to comment on yours. I’m not always coming up with something relevant, but it’s always at the back of my mind. I’ll hit refresh on your photos. I’ll forward something cute to my mom.

And you’d do the same for me. That’s a good way to grow!

UPDATED to add How I Mountain. Too funny to read her post today! 🙂

  1. Well, way to flatter someone 😉 Thanks for your comment on my site which also lead me to this awesome post with ol’ Stephen Weiss. Glad to be mentioned along side him and thank you, as well for the shout out.

    It’s true… it’s all about connecting community and building each other up. It can’t be self-focused… we don’t like hearing about others talking about themselves all the time in real life, why would we want to read about someone who just talks about themselves (unless they are hilarious… that’s a different story) ;). We all love a little reciprocation. Good to remind ourselves (and others) about that.

  2. Thanks for the shout out! (And I guessss being mentioned with Gina Begin ain’t bad haha. Kiddin’ Gina.)

    I love supporting people in their pursuit of doing something awesome, and yeah, I support your support of supporting me and my awesome-ness!

    In all seriousness, you get what you put in. In a past guest post of yours the writer mentioned about being proactive. Well, nothing screams proactive than helping the “community” out. Keep it up, I got a good feeling everything you do will entail being Epic soon enough!

  3. =D

    You nailed it. And thanks for the shout out. It’s all so true.

    And I do believe online peeps are modern-day pen-pals and cyber “friends.”

    I’ve connected with some really fun people online who I never would have met otherwise, including SomeGoSoftly.

    So, THANKS!

Some Start A Conversation! Do it! I dare you!
