Or, if the possibility of a rambling post with no point doesn’t draw you in, I don’t know what will
The first order of business is that I have a problem and I’d like your help with it. See, I’m going to be asking you all to vote for me in the Sam-E Good Mood Blogger competition but since I just started the whole Copyblogger Internet Marketing for Smart People email course I have no freaking clue how to do it.
Because I could just ask, but this is a 5K a month gig, y’all! I need to be snazzy!
My default mode is self-deprecating humor of the neurotic variety, but I’m wondering if this is the right time to bring out the whole “confident” persona I’ve been working on? It’s kind of risky, so maybe I should stick with what I know but at the same time it’s been known to backfire on me and people think I actually mean “oh shucks, don’t vote for me, vote for the people that really deserve it” when I say it. I know, bizarre, right?
So please tell me how to best to convince you that I would be the most awesome mood blogger that ever blogged and we will proceed from there.
By the way, my pals Sean and George are also going for this job. They are remarkably low drama, which is a shame, because I think the best way to get people interested in this contest and voting is to make it a total trainwreck with blood and guts everywhere and the last person standing wondering if it was all worth it. And then they’d get the check and be all like “Awww heck yeah!”
Maybe that should be my slogan – Vote for Tracy – Happily Instigating for your Reading Pleasure since 1974!
Meanwhile, we’re eagerly waiting for entries for our Scary Product Contest. I’ve been promised some good stuff, so don’t let me down!
Also, I was joking when I posted on Hunter Nuttal’s site about writing a book called “Trample not the Mind Ninja” but am slowly coming around to the idea that the world kind of needs me to write this book. I’m toying with the idea of doing it for that NaNoWriMo but instead of it being a novel, it will be about the project I pitched to life coach to the stars, Tim Brownson.
Okay, here’s what we’re going to do. I see Tony Robbins is getting his own show.
Also, I see that shows featuring one snarky English judge are VERY popular.
Also, people like competition.
So, we are going to pitch the idea of Life Judge to all the networks. It will be me (I’ll be the slightly daffy “nice one” also I am Asian so I add diversity), you (the English one) and John (hope he doesn’t mind being the “Randy” of our group). And we’ll have contestants come up and tell us their life stories and we’ll choose I dunno, 8 or something and put them in a mansion and FIX THEM. Sort of like biggest loser, but instead of losing weight, they will be losing FALSE BELIEFS and gaining INSIGHT.
And if we can’t fix them, we’ll EXPLOIT THEM.
Everybody wins on Life Judge, even the screwed up famewhores! Especially us!
So you can see, even if I don’t win Good Mood Blogger, I’ve got a lot up my sleeves. But still, you should vote for me because even if I don’t win, I want to get more than 4 votes or I will start to doubt myself and the rest of you will have to put up with it. I’m talking 2000 word, majorly introspective emails on a daily basis here.
(was that one good? Too needy? Arrogant? I NEED direction here people!)
