As Usual, He Was Right, Except for This…

How’s it going?

Anyhow, let’s get to it.

I was chatting to some dudes online inside a game that I play sometimes with my brother (who happened to be over my shoulder on this short occasion).

Anyway, a fellow chatter asked us what type of processors our computers had. I put that in the chat. Then they asked the speed of our computers. Someone else said they didn’t know.

After my brother saw me type out “I’m kind of a dummy with that stuff” and so on, and glimpsed me about to hit “Enter,” he said:

“This is the internet–no one wants to hear you jabber.”

To which I backed up and put “I don’t know mine either” instead.

He’s right, of course. Unless…

You have a track record of saying interesting things

You’re genuinely intriguing to listen to

People want to listen to you (based on numbers 1 and 2)

At least, that’s how it works (ideally) if you write for yourself or your clients.

It’s a bit like exercise with the commitment factor–without all the sweating, grunting, and what-have-ya…but that doesn’t mean it has to be hard.

Until next time,
