I’ll quote part of the post:
William Goldman once said that in Hollywood “nobody knows anything.”
It’s true. Everywhere. Who knows what the rules are for success in any endeavor?
I can’t tell you how to blog. I can’t give you a quick and easy guide to success.
I can only tell you that anyone who claims they’re an expert and is trying to sell you the secrets of overnight success is full of it.
In any case, here’s my position on branding vs. marketing.
Now do you know why this blog had to
die get shut down or whatever. And do you realize why this blog is superfluous? In fact, have you noticed that its template is like the dark opposite of this one’s? Hmm …!
Need I say more? Ha ha ha …
I’m on Pinterest, okay? I’ve pinned this sucker.
Okay, I’m getting right to it
, since I can barely type. Ha ha ha …
Please, please contribute to my literacy campaign on Indiegogo.
Those are the books I’m giving away in exchange for your totally tax-deductible contribution, which goes to the Red Cross. And that’s me, with my shit-eating grin. And if you look carefully, you’ll see I’m wearing a black bicycle glove to support my crappy hand. I’ve stopped doing this, because honestly, it don’t do shit. Ha ha ha …
FYI, I finished my letter to the awesome $50 contributor to this
noble cause. My gimpy hand and the good one have packaged the signed books, with the letter and a special note card. Please note this post, which may be about a condiment or the duality of humankind.
Okay, just a few links and I’ll shut up:
If you read nothing else, please read this opinion piece.
Two more blog posts that I thought were really awesome!
That’s what I love about Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar. Paul Downie is always himself. Thank you, Paul and Stephen Leather, and all the awesome ones (you know who you are) for helping me to realize that on this blog, I was staring in the mirror and was actually my own worst enemy. I had to break the mirror, in order to live and stand on my own as a real writer. Now do you understand?
Finally, here’s an awesome quote and video from Paul’s post:
“He loved me true did Harry-boy and I loved him true, and if the happiness we gave each other was wicked and wrong in the eyes of the Law and the Church and God Almighty, then the Law and the Church and God Almighty can go dig a hole and fall down it.”
Sir Noël Coward, 16 December 1899 – 26 March 1973
UPDATE: Sometimes, you just gotta laugh. Ha ha ha …
Don’t cry, Ms. Buzz, Balls & Hype.
