Needed… 2UE talk radio hosts John Laws and Alan Jones so i can start my own “cash for comment” scandal!!
Blogging, Tweeting, Facebook Posts all seem easy at first but it’s not long before you realise that the things that get the most feedback and comments seem the most trivial or ridiculous.
One weekend I spent all day working on a part of the family tree getting it just right before i was ready to tweet the world about it. Checked and double checked it and the moment came when I was ready…
Go… Tweet, Facebook Personal Post, Tree Post and Shared to the top 3 groups… now sit back and wait for the feedback to flood in – Right!
Wrong … Did I mention that I had competition that day that I underestimated big time.
The neighbours had been away for a week, “so…” you say, well it’s not the trip that had the world in a spin but the fright they got when they got home. A two litre bottle of milk had gone off in the fridge and was on the brink of exploding, filled with lumps and heaven only knows what it must of smelt like if only someone had the guts to take the lid off… better still maybe they would drink it.
Well a couple of hundred posts later I was feeling sick… No I didn’t drink it… I was feeling sick because my post had No Comments but 2 likes and one of them was my wife because she was feeling sorry for me. (Thanks to the other diehard genealogy misfit – you know who you are) At this point I packed my bat and ball in my knapsack and went home. No I didn’t – I was at home already, this torture had invaded my home, I couldn’t escape it. Now I found I couldn’t sleep either. How was I going to compete in this arena with the likes of “Exploding Milk Bottles?”
So I set about making a list of all the things that got lots of hits, comments, likes, re-tweets.
- Kittens doing anything
- Half naked women taking pics with mobile phones
- Dogs wrecking anything
- Cars with half naked women
- Quote of the Day – That points out how stupid we all are!
- Family In-fighting
- This post will show “I’m a redneck because…”
- Wat yu right and wat I no will bafl ya stoopid – WHAT THE?
In summary, I’m now looking for some sexy male underwear that I can dress in to take a pic with my mobile of me holding a cat as my dog tries to kill it… picture my car in the background, the wife yelling at me to get inside and the caption will read:
Psst – I’ll slip the link to the Family Tree in and maybe a few people will click it by accident
