Keep Your Readers Lingering (Kind Of Like a Fart.)

Farting is fun, funny, can make someone feel angry, and disgusted.

(That’s really not a bad thing.)

"I feel gassy."

There’s an old saying: “People remember one-third of what they read, one-half of what they hear, but 100% of what they feel.” How do people feel when they read your blog? When I write, I try to make the reader create a feeling inside themselves. I try to make the reader laugh, think and even get mad.

Getting a reader angry or mad at one of your posts may be a good thing. The reader might send a mass email to everyone he knows telling them how your blog pissed him off with a link included in his email.  People remember what pisses them off more than they remember what makes them happy. If people remember what makes them happy 100% of the time, pharmaceutical companies that sell depression medication would go bankrupt. I try to make the reader imagine that they are in another world or dreaming about becoming a great blogger or marketer. Invoke the reader to feel something and they will come back again and again. (Kind of like a bad case of gas.)
