Blogs, Blogging, Young Man Old Man, Never The Twain Shall Meet

Excuse me young man, what is a blog
So many talk of it I am simply agog
Is it something that I can eat
Please tell me, that would be a treat

No worries pop, it’s a diary of sorts
Don’t get so stressed, don’t eat your shorts
People record their thoughts and dreams
Businesses may even take it to the extreme

But why do they waste their time
I’m sure they do not make a dime
Why would you waste so much effort
I am sure they sell themselves short

Are you kidding me you silly old coot
People like ProBlogger are makin the loot
They make so much they quit their jobs
They work from home to make a bob

That makes no sense I am bemused
Even more than that I am confused
How can a blog make you money
That’s like believing in the Easter Bunny

Freak me out, you old baby boomer
That is so droll it has no humor
Blogs are really fully sick
Sites like adsense makes them tick

Ah blogs are for the sick now I see
Blogs are therapy, you must agree
People write to vent their spleen
So in time their slate becomes clean

Hey dude, are you for real
Fully sick means the real deal
There are those that blog for fun
And others to get their job done

Now young man don’t take that tone
I’m sure that your parents at home
Taught you to treat elders with respect
Right now your manners are sorely suspect

I don’t understand why I bother
If only I was talking to a blogger
Instead of a doddering old man
Who wouldn’t know a blog from a frying pan

A doddering old fool you think of me
A time will come when you will see
When old age will creep up on you
Even a blogger’s mind won’t pull you through

The old man turns and walks away
Wondering about the youth of today
The young man simply shakes his head
Thinking the old man had lost the thread

And so the age old saga goes on
The result of age and youth forgone
That never the twain shall meet
For to the youthful eye all is sweet

Blog Advertising Is Smart. Advertising On The Front Page Of A Blog Is Smarter

I have been a paid blogger, in that I’ve been paid to do posts advertising certain products and services, and I have learned over the years that there are a whole lot of advertisers out there willing to pay good money to have their links and selected keywords out on the blogosphere for the search engines to pick up on. They do this because that realize the potential for exposure that blogs represent and knowing this has led to the emergence of sites such as Pay Per Post, Blogsvertise, Smorty, Review Me and a myriad of others that are willing to act as a medium for Bloggers and Advertisers, and doing quite well out of it as well.

Advertisers will pay a minimum of $5 to hundreds of dollars for a post of up to three hundred words depending on the PR (PageRank) of the blog. The problem is that the actual post is only on the front page of the blog for a short time before it disappears into the archives. After that it all depends on the prowess of the blogger in regards to SEO and Key Word selection on whether or not it will ever be seen again.


It makes much more sense to pay for either a link or a banner on the front page of a blog as it is there right until the ad runs out getting maximum exposure. Knowing this to be true I am offering several key spots on this blog for those who are interested with the guarantee that your link will stay on the front page for as long as you are willing to pay for the spot. Because this blog is brand new and has yet to receive a PR prices for a spot will be more than reasonable. Naturally I will be trying to get maximum exposure for WassupBlog and you may be interested to know that my last two blogs received a PR3 in under three months. The main point to remember is that you are guaranteed that your link will always be on the main page and will not be lost in the archives like a normal paid post would.

OK, so let’s talk turkey! How much will it cost for you to advertise on this blog? Let’s look at the options.

  1. A simple link will only cost $1 per month unless your link is at the top in which case it will be $5
  2. 117×30 button only $2 per month
  3. 124×124 square only $2.50 per month
  4. 468×60 banner only $3 per month displayed at the bottom of the blog
  5. 468×60 banner at the top of the blog will only set you back $5 per month

These prices will only increase once the PR is achieved and until then I will keep them at the low price structure..

Laughter Is Definitely The Best Medicine, Even When You Grow Old

If there is one thing in common that all my blogs have, apart from the best content :lol_tb: , its the fact that they all contain posts of my favorite jokes. The thing is that I just can’t help it, I love jokes and I love to tell them. According to my kids though, I should learn not to laugh at my own jokes but how can I not when that are so damn funny.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, this blog will follow the general trend and it will have a ‘Funny Posts’ category. If you like a good laugh once in awhile, and believe me laughter is the best medicine, then I suggest you pop in once in a while and get that smile back on your face.

Todays joke is about three old codgers who are standing around discussing all the bad points about growing old.

The 80 year-old said, “The best thing that could happen to me would just to be able to have a good pee. I stand there for twenty minutes, and it dribbles and hurts. I have to go over and over again.”

The 85 year-old said, “The best thing that could happen to me is if I could have one good bowel movement. I take every kind of laxative I can get my hands on and it’s still a problem.”

Then the 90 year-old said, “That’s not my problem. Every morning at 6:00 am sharp, I have a good long pee. At 6:30 am sharp I have a great bowel movement. The best thing that could happen to me would be if I could wake up before 7:00 am.”
