You know the saying, “it’s better to attract bees with honey not vinegar.” Wrong. That’s now how blogging works. It’s easier to get attention with a negative comment as opposed to a positive one. Let me elaborate by using my favorite example mista john chow. If you read some of the comments left on john’s blog, you’ll see there are 20-30 people kissing his ass. How do you stand out amongst the 20-30 arse kissing comments? By kicking ass and taking names thats how. It throws a monkey wrench into the whole system. Other commentators will rebuke you and call you names. They might even come to your site and cuss you out for blaspheming JC. How dare you! JC is the son of man!
Don’t just say a negative comment though. Write something interesting and make it negative. It’s better be useful or you’ll look like an arse. The point is to draw attention and kick ass, not draw attention and be an ass.
I’ll use another example. The other JC. No not Jesus Christ. John Cow. He wrote a blog post that contained the word Cunt about a month ago. It was awesome cause it caused quite a stir with some A-list blogger. There must have been like 60 comments on that posts. That’s like gizmodo level. If the cow used the other c word (cutie) to reference the female, then that post would only be read by his loyal readers. But because he used the word CUNT, that post must have been read by double or tripple his normal readership.
Bad is the new good.
It’s more fun to be bad. In movies, and we love villians more then our heros. So it makes sense to be naughty at times to spice up your blog. No Blood No Foul right? So don’t kiss ass, kick ass. We’re in the game to make money, so be a bad ass with your make money blog.
I’m not only the founder of this idea, i’m also a client. Hmm that didn’t sound as good as i hoped. Bad use of such a beautiful quote.(bald guys know what i’m talking about) I will try out this method on johnchow and a few other blogs. Let’s see if it works.
