How Promoting Our Website (Almost) Became an Addiction

For those of you who haven’t yet started a Blog, you will not understand. Simply attempting one Blog will get you hooked. That’s what happened to me when I took on the job of marketing our scrap metal recycling website. At first it was kind of a chore. I wanted to emphasize what makes us unique or special in the overall landscape of metal recycling in Los Angeles. I pointed out all the benefits that come with using our company—including making some serious cash.

There’s only so much you can post about the workings of a scrap yard but as time went on I found I really enjoyed researching the various aspects of metals (ferrous or nonferrous), tensile strength, ways of identifying them, etc. After a few weeks I found I was hooked. Yes this is part of my day job but I really liked the process of blogging.

Soon, you are blogging on a daily basis. You get out of bed, attempting to browse around to see who has actually discussed your Blog. Then it gets to be a 3 to 4 posts a day habit, and you’re still saying, “You know I can give it up anytime I really want to”.

Then you decide to attempt various kinds of Blog. You have your personal stash Blog, then a joke Blog, then another one on a different subject. Now when you aren’t doing your own Blogs, you entering other individuals’s Blogs and commenting more and more.

You’re informing everybody how they need to try Blog. Pressing Blog to kids. Yahoo and google are telling you how much you can make dealing Blog. There you are the local Blog dealer.

On every corner of the online search engine, offering Blog. Looking at your statistics to see the number of individuals attempted your Blog, how long they were blogged in, which blogposts they were doing. Now you are hooked for sure. Individuals walk by you now, your friends, household, and you can’t help but hear them referring to  you as a “bloghead.”

Blogs: Fun. Lucrative. An Obsession?

You’re hanging out with other people who are “blogheads,” sharing posts, maybe trying to connect your Blog to others’ to boost your visibility, trying to hook more individuals on Blog. The blogposts have got you defined. At this point there’s not much you can do however so you keep on blogging.

Even this short article you read right now, you’re considering which of your Blogs you are going to publish it on for other Blogheads to check out. If you don’t have a Blog for this article, then you can begin one on the topic of everything about being addicted to Blogging.

Google or Yahoo will front you the startup sum to start writing your Blog with, and you think, hey! just another Blog won’t hurt me. Go on. Sure. I can start another Blog.

Then you get so connected on Blogging you begin your own Blog about how to discover more Blog. You get all the Blogheads to ping your new Blog search Blog. Oh, yeah male, the pings. The pings are the very best, male. You don’t know what it’s like to get pinged by the Blogs, male. It’s out of this world!

Next you begin yet another Blog to teach others the best way to Blog. You become a Blog Connoisseur. A Blog Guru. A Blog Consultant. A Blog Expert.

You really know you’re a goner when you start to host Blogs. That’s when you’re no longer just the local Blog Dealer, you are supplying the Blog Dealers.

Hey, man I got this brand-new thing here. All you have to do is log in and push a couple of buttons and you get more Blog!

Wow, male, you haven’t attempted Blog yet? You truly gotta get with the times, male. Blogging is the bomb.

Well, that was the case for me and I found that it can take a bit too much of one’s time especially when trying to devote one’s original blog to promoting the business paying my salary. I quit the others before it became (more of) an obsession and I’m actually pretty happy about it. I still enjoy sharing scrap metal information with potential customers. However, if you are into blogging and find you’re in need of an inbound link from a scrap metal recycling company in Los Angeles,  feel free to shoot me an email!
