My daddy is a problogger. I don’t know lots of stuff, but I know what that means. It means he goes to Panera Bread to eat cookies and drink iced tea while looking at his computer. And sometimes he takes me along and I can eat flower cookies and drink smoothies and blog on my computer, too!
My daddy teaches others how to blog, how to get people to come to their blogs. He says people come to mine. But I never see them. He says it’s because the readers come by birds in twos and threes. (Ed: virtually).
One of the questions he gets asked is “How long does it take for a blog to catch on?”
The Japanese say ‘石の上にもう三年´. It means 3 years on a rock….which means, if something can last 3 years, it will likely continue on after that.
Seems like a whole lot of people came to read one of his sites. About the same number of people who lives in San Jose. (Yeah! He and I both know the way. He drives and I ride in the back.)
Daddy is a professional blogger. He knows how to write, what to write, when to write stuff so that lots and lots of people come to read. He makes money, too. Buys me stuff from the Disney store and takes me places like to the movies to see Tangled and Rio. He also teaches others how to …
He has an egg carton number of students who are creating web sites around various topics. All of them want more people to visit their sites. And my daddy knows how to do that = get people to come to web sites.
He’s a snow shoe media expert. (Ed. Social Media Expert) He does stuff on his computer and people show up. He’s done it so many times that people keep asking him how he does it. So, he teaches a class.
I like when people ask my daddy questions. I like to watch him answer questions for people. I like to watch people watch and listen to my daddy when he teaches and answers questions. I like when people like my daddy. I like, make that love my daddy.
One of the things my daddy teaches that is important for growing the number of people to a web site is that you have to reach out to other people who write about the same things you do. In other words, make friends.
That makes sense. And I like to make friends, too.
So, I have been spending this morning looking for other people who write about the same thing I do.
