I told Hello in red and bold coz I wanted to grab attention if not a handful atleast a half wrist !
Attention seeking disorder– I know many including me are suffering from this with the increasing number of social networks and increasing number of blogs / writers or may be I should say an increasing number of Computers/ laptops. Anyone who knows basic MS DOS is a writer these days. Well by now u know this is a rant – post but I just couldnt resist posting this after reading this http://randomrahul.blogspot.in/2012/04/load-off-my-chest.html . I thought I can be better off by taking little load off my chest too.Every thing is almost written by him. I just want to add icing on the cake and justify each and every point and to add some more points .Ya, these days its all about the rat race till you become popular/ get likes/ comments and votes (when its an indi thingy). If you win the race the pursuit is fruit full and that one large phase of your life is called “Pursuit of Happyness” and you will live happy forever provided you are always in the pursuit to win the race and You need to follow the below top ten tips to win on Indi/ to get votes/ Readers!
1.) Read any one and every ones blog. Follow any one and every one and add them to your indi network
2.) While doing the above dont forget to be a self obsessed self loving self important blogger . Its all about me / Moi/ Main / Myself
3.) Even if you cant read the shit what some write, hold your breath and drop some silly comment like “Great way to present the situation”. ” U made me thoughtful” and blah blah [IF you have too many followers U know better than me] ;). These are true lies. Lies which will lead to the truth that “U will be finally followed!”
4.) Dont try to correct grammar or give suggestions to popular people coz U will be clean bowled and the minimum trafficking you have will also come to an end
5.)In schools/ colleges in some places they have removed the grading system just to make students feel good but you can never fool around on blogspot/ indiblogger. Its all comments and votes which matter to make people stop by your blog — MORE THAN THE CONTENT IT SELF but but if you have good content too then NONE can stop you! So concentrate on what you write too , atleast frequently when your attention gets diverted from votes
6.) Its just a mis-conception that pretty prof pic makes people read, coz I have seen old people who really write well having good number of followers, but Ya I wont deny a pic says more than the blog post. There were cases where pretty pics grabbed prizes when there were better posts in top 20- 30
7.)Be on blog day noon evening night and mid night. You should be totally jobless to be famous in this area coz what you give U get. You give 100% attention there are fair chances that U grab attention too.
8.)Try to blog every day.[Its tough for people who are in 9 to 5 or 9 to 9 jobs but I know many who take out time and allot an hour or so for blogging] Take any random topic and add some negativity , positivity and then neutrality,take some swear words if possible (as it looks uber cool), Use two three great lively pics like I used here, say Thanks to your readers from the bottom of your heart every now and then and all the while dont forget to write “Good” posts coz crap doesnt sell for long!
9.)Tell whats happening in your life all over the blog. Well blogging and boggling dont have much difference in spelling. It will make U a regular to the blogging world. I cant say that you will become a Ayn Rand / Salman Rushdie/ you will make it a Wings of fire but ya you will for sure grab attention. People are always interested to know about others personal life some times straight, some times hidden between lines and if you post a personal pic it will be an asset to the post!
10.) Write heavy topics/ Women oriented ones/ heart wrenching ones/ Rights of a man/ woman/ About politics / Movies in such a presentable way that whoever would be the judges when they read your post will not think twice to make you a winner!
Last but not the least when ever they say votes do
not matter. Just strike off the not and get these words clear “Votes do matter” and at times only they matter. Well I really dont know how people do vote appeal coz am not good at marketting and I reallly dint even follow the above tips! I succeded a bit by following 1 2 and 3 but couldnt fake for long :(!
Well what I can do the most is write , tell the world and wait!
“Hello World” I have written this! Would be glad if you read and comment. Would be super glad if you feel I write stuff good enough to be my follower but If you dont give a damn , well I will feel sad for a min and then I would stop giving a damn too coz away from the blogging world there are too many mind blowing and therapeutic things to do and writing is also one of them!
Comments/ brick bats invited.
Suggestions to improve trafficking are also invited- If I can follow and increase my readers , well its definitely a boost.
By the way one imp thing I forgot is dont rely on friends and their likes/ comments:) Theres always a cold war between your known blogger friends and you! Relying on strangers is a better option coz even if they ignore you you wont feel that bad!
I have cribbed after long , well not so long 😉 and am feeling good about it.
