The truth about what we read online is that most of it is garbage…garbage in/ garbage out. Now let me explain about garbage; it’s not what you might think.
From the moment we open our eyes, to the moment we drift off to sleep we are bombarded with input and some of it is good and a lot of it is just random stuff that doesn’t seem to make a difference in our lives; but it does. Your subconcious mind is always at work and the input you get shapes the things you do and say and feel. It’s hard to keep a good attitude when you wake up late, slip and bang your knee in the shower and burn the eggs, but each of these things is something we can choose to let affect us.
The same is true about what we read and do online. People use the internet for a variety of reasons but the most important is to find information. Not all the time, but most of the time, the information you read helps to shape your life. If you read my blog you might find a few laughs, some interesting information, and maybe some inspiration, but the things I write do influence the world as your perceive it, and hopefully what you read isn’t like a million other sites because this content is 100% original. (Please let me know if someone is stealing my content!)
It might just be a few lines of words or it might give you an ah-ha moment (I hope) but mostly it’s garbage if it’s not what you’re looking for. Yesterday’s post was all about opportunity, and yet, if you read it there is a subiliminal message that can be used to persuade you to buy or do something. My title and the references were about opportunity but mentioned 2 separate artists and a specific song, if I was selling anything on this blog (wink wink) I might offer up a link to an affiiliate product for a cd or a book about either singer and quite possibly a program about doing something with your life.
The truth is that I had just finished a webinar about the new book Abundance by Steven Kolter and Peter H. Diamandis and was inspired. Now that’s marketing! Not only did I spend an hour of my time listening to the author (literally genius) but I also posted something about a song that inspired me, and now I’m talking about the book. (Yes I bought it – I love Amazon gift cards!)
As a writer I know how to weave a story out of things that might seem as if they have little by way of connection, but in reality it is all connected and as a marketer it’s important to find that connection and explain it. Using this method to connect to your readers is far better than just throwing up an SEO generated article that was created for the purpose of ranking in Google for keywords. People want great content, not an article about a keyword.
I know this statement might seem crazy because I sell PLR at www.PLRinfospot.com (shameless plug) but it’s true and it’s something that I have a hard time getting around. I might not be the best writer, but I have my own style and writing PLR for a keyword is difficult sometimes. This blog is my outlet and for me it’s not garbage, instead it’s a way for me to hone my craft, (yes I said hone!) and a way to express what I feel and think.
Tell You How I REALLY Feel…
I don’t want to be pigeonholed into some kind of system or guru or brand; instead I want what I write to appeal to a large audience. I want people to laugh at my jokes, cry at my failures and throw money at me (well a girl can dream), but mostly; I just want to write and I’d love to be able to help people even if it means they learn from my mistakes.
I know you don’t have to spend time reading my posts, and most of them are long, so I thank you for taking the time. I hope this post isn’t just more online garbage for you to read. If you’re interested in buying PLR – great – go to my www.PLRinfoSpot.com site. If not, no biggie, but if you’d like to make a comment you’re welcome to do it below.
Just remember, the truth about what we read online is that it’s subjective. You only have so many hours of the day to do and read the things that interest you. I hope this post was worthy of your time and I hope you’ll come back again to see what else I’ve to offer.
