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,
