Have you found yourself reading my blog from time to time? Are you a “regular” here? If so, I’m proud to say that most every morning I’m thinking of you… because most every morning I wake up and write–I write to communicate, and no writer is really a writer until they have readers. So you make me who I am. To put it in another, more needy-and-desperate-sounding way…
So, if you’re one of my regulars, I have a few options for you to stay connected and updated with what I’m posting here on daviddrury.com…
But before I give you this information, I should tell you that if there’s anything I’ve learned from the big names in blogging, it’s that you have to give away stuff like crazy in order for people to make you famous. So, in order for you to join my “tribe” and expand my “platform” in insane ways, I will give away something unimaginable for each of these steps as you go deeper and deeper into the cult of personality that is DavidDrury.com
Subscribe (RSS & Email):
Subscribe via RSS – Served by FeedBurner, you’ll be able to read my posts right in the RSS Reader of your choice. If you subscribe to my RSS I will personally let you or one of your children marry one of my daughters, or my only son.
Subscribe via Email – Also served by FeedBurner, you’ll get each post as an email delivered directly to your inbox. If you subscribe via Email I will write your biography myself, being sure to inflate your accomplishments and make it sound like all of humanity depends on you with Lois Lane-like enthusiasm (so, like your Resume only expanded 40,000 words and published).
Stay Connected (Social Media):
If you’re hip & trendy & roll your eyes when someone says “twits” or “the twitters”, then Follow Me on Twitter. Some people post cool quotes on Twitter, but my hubris is so deep that I often quote myself so you might retweet me instead of Einstein. If you follow me on Twitter it’s not much of a commitment… so the only free thing you will receive is a strand of Albert Einstein’s hair, taped to the back of Princeton Letterhead.
If you’re a human, there’s a 1 in 7 chance you’re on Facebook already–seemingly the only user population in the world growing faster than global population. Join Me on Facebook and you will receive one zillion shares of stock in the Facebook company. Of course, this is worth half of what it was at it’s IPO–but it’s something.
I’m @daviddrury on Instagram if you search for me there — on the off chance that I take a picture that is somewhat cool, I upload it there and destroy the original with retro filters and trendy blurring effects. As an added benefit, I rarely take photos of my food. If you follow me on Instagram, I will send you a picture of myself that could be used to blackmail me at a future date if I ever become rich and/or famous and/or powerful.
If you are an employee of Google, or if you’re one of the handful of people who think it’s better than F-book, find me over at Google+ too. If you add me to your Google+ circles, then you are obviously a true G+ believer and a geek like me, so I will personally come over to your house and watch the entire Star Wars Trilogy (episodes 4-6 of course) and make witty comments and/or ironic inside jokes throughout.
Okay… it’s going to be very difficult to fulfill all these prize promises. But it’ll be worth it if you RSS, Subscribe, Like, Friend, Follow, Circle & Complete me.
