Blogging Things I Really Like Writing

I Almost Slept With Anthony Weiner While Reading Sticky Readers

June 17, 2011

I almost slept with Anthony Weiner while I was listening to Casey Anthony confess that she killed Caylee.

See what I did there? I hooked you in. Now you want to know all the details of how I almost slept with Anthony Weiner and you are just dying to know how I got the scoop on Casey Anthony’s confession that she murdered her daughter.

I learned how to do that by reading Margeret Andrews new book Sticky Readers: How to Attract a Loyal Blog Audience by Writing More Better.

Of course I didn’t actually almost sleep with Anthony Weiner, he’s a Liberal and I am not,  and we all know Casey Anthony didn’t kill Caylee.

Margaret says you have to grab your readers with a hook (chapter 1). She says you don’t want to bore your readers with posts about going to the grocery store or cleaning the toilets, which sadly is half my blog posts.

In addition to utilizing the tips in chapter 1 I also learned from Chapter 3: Get Personal; Chapter 5: Include a Universal Topic or Theme; and Chapter 6: Choose a Debatable or Controversial Topic. I did all those things in my first sentence because I read Margaret’s book.

Sure I skipped over Chapter 2 Details, Details, Details (Be Specific), but you don’t really want anymore details about Anthony Weiner’s weiner, so you’re welcome.

Already I’m writing more better.

Seriously, Margaret’s new book Sticky Readers: How to Attract a Loyal Blog Audience by Writing More Better, is a must read for bloggers and writers everywhere. Even if you are already a Pulitzer prize winner you need Margaret’s book. In fact if you are a Pulitzer Prize winner you probably need it more than anyone because Margaret has included a chapter about writing funny and we all know anyone who writes a Pulitzer Prize winning book is not funny.

This isn’t one of those books that tells you how to become the next internet guru, Margaret doesn’t tell you how you can make gobs of cash with Google Adwords, she doesn’t make promises she can’t keep. She does tell you what is wrong with your blog and how you can fix it. And she does it all while entertaining the reader. I get a lot of books to review (I paid for this book myself so this is not a paid review) and most of the time they are boring. So boring I can’t get through them. Not Sticky Readers: How to Attract a Loyal Blog Audience by Writing More Better, I couldn’t put my iPad down last night. It is that good.

If you want to write more better get Margaret’s book, right now, and read it. You can get it at Amazon and download it to any device using Kindle.
