I want you to want me

It’s time for an adult conversation.

Are you ready for it? It’s not for the weak heart-ed.

So, here it comes...

I want you to want me.


And you know what?

I am sure you want me to want you too.

It’s true, and you know it.

After all, isn’t that what this is all about?

The THAT in that sentence refers to the desire to have others like you, (to go to your blogs, to buy your books, to read your stuff).

And the THIS in that sentence refers to... well, to this. Blogs. Twitter. Facebook. LinkedIn. Pinterest. Triberr.

It’s all about wanting people to like you. Otherwise, why would we be here?

Honestly, if it wasn’t for my deep seated human instinct to like-and-be-liked, I would be off playing Tiddlywinks with myself. (Oh you want that statement modernized?)

Fine.

If I did not have the deep seated human instinctual desire to like-and-be-liked I would be off in a dark room watching porn between rounds of Tiger Woods golf, Halo 4, Skyrim, and Mass Effect 3.

There. Is that better?

Seriously.

This Social Media thing is all about the likey.

I likey you and you likey me.

I want you to know more about me. To read my blogs and buy my books.

That’s the God’s honest truth.

And you know what?

I REALLY want to know more about you and buy your books.

So make me like you.

Make me want to buy you.

How you ask?

I am so glad you did ask just that.

ANNOUNCING the ALL NEW series of posts on The Plotters of Cantaera and Dimensions - Romy Malloy blogs:

QnA!

That’s right, I hate ampersands.

None of that & garbage here.

Just a good old-fashioned-down-home-southern-fried-date-your-cousin-and-marry-your-brother kind of thing that just SMACKS of NASCAR and Fried Mayonnaise balls!

QnA!

The Question-n-Answer forum to beat all forums!

Well, ok, truth to tell I am not out to beat other forums.

I just want to know more about you other writers out there. And readers too, if you care to play.

And maybe together we can generate a few more blog reads and book buys and that’s a good thing right? Stimulate the economy and all?

Anyway, here’s how we play.

If you are interested in answering a few intimate (not that intimate) questions and allowing me to post the answers here on my blogs for the whole world to see, then either comment below or catch me on Twitter (@paulpcarter).

A few lucky folks will also receive a “special” invitation from me via my knee-man Guido. He should be knocking on your door right about... now!

Ha!

Scared ya!

Anywhooo... I hope I get a great response to this (or ANY response for that matter) because I REALLY do want to know more about you.


Later!
