So an alternate title for this post could be "Fake it Till You Make it" but I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, so yeah.
Today we're going to talk pretend. I'm not sure, and I didn't spend time looking online (I am just that lazy, or maybe I'm drafting a novel...), but I believe it was comedian Jerry Seinfeld who once said that when he steps on stage, he pretends.
He has to. People are expecting him to be funny. Even if he's had a bad day, gotten in a fight, etc.
I sometimes feel like this is what we have to do online. We want to put our best foot forward. We should want to be on our best behavior.
And, we have to fake it until we make it. You want more followers? Think like Jerry Seinfeld. More comments? Jerry Seinfeld.
He puts on his best act every time he steps on stage. Your blog is your stage. Are you putting on your best act? If you do, people will come.
