This post is a bit off my usual posts of stories and poetry. But I need some advice. In particular this goes out to my fellow female bloggers. But male bloggers, feel free to contribute if you have any insight from your point of view.
Back in February when I started writing this blog, I have been more active on Instagram and Twitter. The goal is to promote my blog and thus generate more followers. While I have picked up a lot of followers on these venues, I have also picked up a lot of, shall we say, lonely men?
And, if you can believe it, some of my followers are famous people! Johnny Depp superstar, and Prince Harry of Kensington Palace is following me. So is a US General, an oil magnate, and a sheik. These people are following little old me, a Texas woman who writes poetry and such?
On Instagram and Twitter, they always start out with ‘Hello Dear’.
What, is there an online manual or site on the web on how to pick up women on Social Media?
How to Pick up Any Woman in Three Easy Steps:
Step 1- Find a woman whose profile you like.
Step 2- Reach out to her with an endearing word, we like “Dear” here at How to Pick up Any Woman.
Step 3- We have found through our extensive research that her politeness will prevail. She will respond with a hello at least. If you’re lucky, you may get more. And if she says she’s happily married, don’t believe it! No one is happily married these days!”
I was chatting via email with my fellow blogging friend Chuck, over at The Reluctant Poet. One of his suggestions was to concoct a wild story.
How about- I live with 43 cats- do you like cats?
Schizophrenia runs in my family, but I don’t believe it. The voices inside my head told me I am fine, it’s the rest of the world that’s crazy.
OR…Thank you for following me. Help, I am being held captive by mad scientists who are turning me into a replicant.
Hmmm. Maybe I change my profile photo to one where I am glaring at the camera, all wide-eyed and crazy-like. On second thought, I still have a goal of building followers, and that wouldn’t do it.
So, to all the amazing women out there in the blogging world, If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear about them. I know I can’t be the only one who is experiencing this.
Till next time!
