There I sat, a beautifully written blog post. I had a gorgeous photo from Flickr, all the right keywords, alt-tags, meta descriptions and a headline that would make Barbara Walters absolutely green with envy. There were bullet points and sub-headings in bold so you could scan through. And at the end, there was a call to action that had me wanting to sign up.
I was stunning!
But no one saw me. 🙁
I thought my owner was selfish, until I realized she didn’t know what to do. Her favorite movie was “Field of Dreams” and her favorite line was “Build it and he will come”. So she hit the “Publish”button on her WordPress Blog and waited. She would come by and visit to see if anyone left comments, but nothing but crickets.
Then one day the doorbell rang. It was the cutest little girl selling Girl Scout Cookies. Later when she was enjoying her Thin Mints, she thought about that little girl and had a brilliant idea. “I have to let people know.” She could hardly sleep that night. She got up in the morning and did just what the Girl Scout did.
She went door to door, but online!!!
- She went on LinkedIn and shared with me 5 different groups
- Put me as her LinkedIn Status update
- Tweeted me out 5 different times
- Posted me on her Facebook Business Page
- Shared me in a few Facebook Groups
- Sent an email to some clients and colleagues she thought would like it.
- She Google+’d me
- She did a scoop on Scoop.it
- She even pinned me on Pinterest
There are so many other places and ways to share me, that my little blog head was spinning.
Oh, and one more thing, so she wouldn’t look spammy she wrote a different intro for each one.
And guess what?
People stopped by and I had lots of comments. They shared it with their friends, wrote her emails thanking her and she even got a phone call!! It was absolutely glorious.
And the best part? I wasn’t lonely anymore!! I had found love – Blog Love!!
When we get together for our family reunions, my other blog post friends and family tell me how lonely they are, too. And there’s no need for that.
So get out there, write that wonderful blog post telling your stories and then share it with the world.
Tweet it. Facebook It. LinkedIn It. Pin It. Email It. Google Plus It. Do something with it!
And let’s rid the world of lonely blog posts forever.
