You Want Me To Do What?

3 Oct


Q & A with Lisa (by a reader, who might just be you . . .):

Q.  What is a blog, anyway?

A.  A blog (not to be confused with a blob—a person who spends too much time on his/her blog) is a word blend of the term web-log.

It is defined as a type of website or part of a website that is maintained by people with regular entries of commentary on a variety of topics, such as news, entertainment, and in my case, poking fun at life, at myself, or at you.

Q.  Why should I subscribe to your blog?

A.  Few things in life are free.  This is one of them.

Q.  You used to email me your blog, now you’re asking me to subscribe.  What gives?

A.  It’s kind of like using the airport moving walkway . . . it gets you from A to B faster.  Meaning, nothing changes other than that my blog posts will be e-mailed to you automatically and that will save me time.  And time is money, unless you blog.

Q.  If I subscribe, what’s in it for me?

A.  “Whoever follows me will have a life filled with light and will never live in the dark.”

Q.  Isn’t that John 8:12?  

A.  Just go with it.

Q.  If I subscribe, will I get e-mail Spam?

A: Rest assured, this is totally kosher.

Q.  Will I start receiving weird stuff, like Girls & Corpses magazine?

A.  You might, but not because you subscribed to my blog.

Q.  So you’re saying that if I subscribe, nothing will change.   I’ll continue to receive your blog in my inbox each week, and you’ll continue to earn no money.   Where do I sign up?

 A.  Just click here  On the right side, enter your e-mail address where it says “Email subscription” and submit.

Q.  What if I subscribe, but change my mind?

A.  You can unsubscribe at any time.  That’s free too . . .

    Now…the NEXT thing one of us should do is instruct everyone who subscribes to a blog how “safe” it is to leave a comment…and how much they are appreciated, whether the reader agrees with you or not.

    Oh, serious flaw spotted in your pitch to subscribe.
    “I’ll continue to receive your blog in my inbox each week.”

    Each week? You mean I’m only getting it once a week? What if I’m a twice a week kind of guy?

    Nuther thing. I consider this social net “work”. That means, if I’m gonna be doin’ you, you need to be doin’ me. Makes no never mind to me if you got 12 kids, 2 jobs, a husband and a dawg.

    See what I’m sayin’?

    I already installed you in my reader and in my Site Meter. I know your every move. 

    I’ve had virtually that same conversation at least 100 times. Thanks to you, now I can just direct them to your informative blog post 🙂

    “Q. Isn’t that John 8:12?

    A. Just go with it.”

    That part made me laugh! This is such a clever way to migrate everyone to e-mail subscriptions rather than saying, “Hey, do this. Thanks.”
