What? What’s wrong with this post? I can’t even make a list of 199 bloggers to follow so I should be able to start my own list, right? It would be pretty sad if I couldn’t even make this one. I did take a vote BTW, and it was unanimous, so here it is:
Bill Dorman is about the coolest guy I know. It’s truly astounding what he has been able to accomplish in such a short time in social. His rise was so meteoric most assumed he would be like a shooting star, blazing hot and white, but quickly fade from sight. However, through his sheer genius and tenacity, now A-listers seek him out for advice. He could easily command six-figure speaking engagements but instead chooses to help his fellow bloggers along this precarious and tenuous journey called social. Let’s meet Bill Dorman….
1. Why did you get into blogging
Well, the first thing I heard about twitter were the tweet-ups. Typically free food and drink at these events, so instantly I could tell this would be a good fit for me. I certainly didn’t hear of any other social platforms doing this.
However, and even though I can ‘just show up’ quite well, it appeared you needed a blog for real street cred. Therefore, The Invisible Blogger was born.
2. How did you come up with the Invisible Blogger
I knew I would be pretty big. I just didn’t want to be presumptuous about the whole thing so the Invisible Blogger moniker seemed a likely fit while maintaining my modesty.
3. How many times do you post a week
I started out with one, but had such a surge of visitors it almost crashed my site. I have since gone to twice a week and adjusted my settings so my community can make appointments when they would like to comment.
4. How much money have you made from your blogging efforts
I’m sorry; I’m a privately held LLC and really not at liberty to divulge this information. Let’s just say Donald Trump shines my shoes.
5. How much time do you devote to your blog
Let’s see, it takes me about 30 minutes to write both posts for the week and if you can keep this confidential, I actually have hired 3 people to answer all the comments. I was against it at first, but replying to all the comments was really cutting into my golf and drinking time.
6. Who do you consider your peers in this arena
I will plead the fifth; I’m afraid it would offend some of these people who ‘think’ they are gurus to not make this list. We play nice here…
7. Have you always been this humble
Certainly; why do you think I’m so popular?
8. Do you accept guest posts on your blog
Absolutely not; are you kidding me? This is sacred ground and I have to be very judicious with how it is used.
9. Any advice to new bloggers
I hope you don’t mind playing for second place. You know what they say about the view never changing if you aren’t the lead dog; get used to it.
10. Any final thoughts
Talk about wasting some perfectly good space. Hopefully no one thought there was an ounce of seriousness in this and you don’t actually know anybody that is that full of themselves.
And hopefully it gave you a chuckle.
That’s all I got……..no, seriously……..
