How to become a popular blogger in this confused area called blogosphere? This is of course the exact question one person asked me on Facebook but I think it will be prudent to address this issue in the form of a post.I do like how the question was framed with particular interest in the confused part.
If you want one area where you’re likely to be confused the more, then please find yourself in an area we refer to as blogosphere. Whiles Blogger A has this to say, Blogger B has a different opinion to share as well but the funny thing is that it’s all happens on the same subject-matter.
As always, posts on kabenlah.com is where I look at the world through the eyes of others aren’t complete without Little Johnny who always finds in one mischievous act or the other and as always, today is of no exception.
Little Johnny got to school late on Monday morning:
Teacher: Little Johnny why did u come to school late?
Little Johnny : One man lost #1,000 note at the bus stop
Teacher: “Ooohh! That’s good of you…seems you were helping the man look for his lost money.
Little Johnny answered “Nooo! Am I mad? I was standing on the money”
But on that Sunday preceding the Monday, look at what happened to Little Johnny. No wonder he needs money.
Little Johnny’s pastor called him after church and asked him how much he bought his iphone 6 smartphone.
Little Johnny lied that he bought the phone for $100 instead of $1000, because he didn’t want the Pastor to shout and ask how much he (Little Johnny) gave to God that month.
All of a sudden, the Pastor gave Little Johnny two hundred dollars to buy two of the phones for him and his wife. Now Little Johnny is confused and doesn’t know what to do. What advice will you give to Little Johnny?
Hahaha! Obviously, Little Johnny need some great advice and is indeed in great dilemma.
Let now move back to business as usual. How does one become a popular blogger in this confused world we call blogosphere?
