Dare to Be Eccentric

Manolo says, the Manolo has written the short article about how to be the good blogger for the online advertising company Chitika. Here is the short sample.

You may think, Mr. Arturo G. Bloggerman, that your grand mission is to enlighten the unwashed masses, to whom you declaim the unpleasant truth from your exalted perch at Chitika Blog Bash: Experts Badgedeclaimingloudly.blogspot.com. But in the point of fact, if the unwashed masses do not find your loud declamations entertaining they will quickly move down the street to the Cuteoverload to look at the pictures of the squirrel babies.

So, what must you do to compete with the squirrel babies?

First learn to write the good, lively, entertaining prose, and then, second, do not be afraid of giving your readers the odd combination of the topics, or the peculiar view of the world, or the different way of approaching your subject. Do not be afraid to be seen as different, or even eccentric. Indeed, to be eccentric in this crowded market is the strength.

You should perhaps go read the rest.
