Stand By Me And We Will Become Better Bloggers


I got a link in my email today that lead me to a site where I was able to listen to the old song Stand By Me by Ben E. King. I’ve always liked this song but this time when I listened to it I was blown away as it involved the participation of musicians from around the world, adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe.

I immediately tweeted the song to give it more exposure and so that my followers could listen to what I believe is an inspirational song. Problem is that I know not everyone who follows you on Twitter will always click on a link and so I thought it best to post it on this blog, along with a little poem I threw together for the occasion.

As long as the Net exists
People will move about
Bloggers will come and bloggers will leave
But I will always be around
As long as you stand by me

If I get put down on
If I was to get abused
If the A Listers should mock me
It won’t matter, it won’t mean a thing
Just as long as you stand by me

It’s so hard if you stand all alone
There’s only so much one person can do
If only we can learn to stand by one another, you’ll see
That we are no longer alone
So please won’t you stand by me.

Even though the title of the blog is stand by me and we will become better bloggers, I meant the word ‘me’ to cover more than myself personally, rather I want us to embrace others into the fold by helping them to improve, and this can be done in many ways that does not include belittling them!

OK, enough of that, now I want you to turn up your speakers and to sit back and enjoy the best of Stand By Me.

Dragons Creatures Of Mystery


I don’t know why but I love dragons and I have done so for as long as I can remember. Some of my favorite books include dragons. These include Anne McCafferrey’s Dragon series right up to Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance which stars the magical Saphira and her Dragon Rider Eragon. So far I’ve read Eragon, Eldest, Brisinger and I am patiently waiting for the next book to come out.

I also collect dragon figurines. This is one of the first one I bought, and I’m not a fanatic so I don’t have all that many. It’s made of pewter and I photoshopped it a little so it looks like it’s flying over my neighborhood.

Mythical Dragon

Here’s a little poem about dragons and dragon riders that I put together .

Dragons, a creature of mystery
Of legends but not of history
Many stories have been told
In books & dark nights they unfold

Majestic, mighty and terrible too
Their mighty roar and flames ensue
Respect and fear they do command
It’s strength no warrior can withstand

Of Dragon Riders I have heard
Mighty legends passed on by word
A bond between Rider and Dragon has begun
No longer two, they have become one.

Thoughts and feelings they now combine
Together forever their lives entwined
Feats of valour of the pair are told
Yet not today will this story unfold.

One of my favorite dragons would have to be this Swarovski Crystal. I fell in love with Swarovski! after seeing the Crystal Dragon. It was part of the ‘Fabulous Creatures’ collection and as only SCS members were allowed to purchase these pieces I quickly joined. This is the first crystal piece I ever bought. In following years I also bought Pegasus and the Unicorn with many pieces in between.

Trey of Swollen Thumb Entertainment has even written a instrumental piece called Beware Of The Dragon. I think when Trey wrote this the dragon he had in mind is the sort that would swoop down on you breathing fire and brimstone and perhaps picking up a stray man or woman as a tasty morsel. I much prefer those dragons who have befriended humans but are not against eating those lowlifes who would spam blogs or scrape them for their content.

A Recap On My Hottest Poems

it seems that my  blog post Why I No Longer Link To The Likes Of ProBlogger And John Chow has created quite a stir. That being the case WassupBlog has been inundated with new visitors and the business / online marketer in me is shouting out, Come on you fool, now is the time to capitalize on all that traffic and make some money. You need a post full of affiliate links or something. MOVE!

Instead, what am I going to do? I’m going to take this time to settle things down little by recapping on some of my old posts, and not just any old posts, my poetry ones. :devil_tb:

Now the recapping of old posts is generally a good thing as it allows you to bring some of those old post out of the moth ridden closets and into the light. Linking between posts is also a good SEO tactic.

The Child Of God: Yeah, what can I say, I’m a Christian, probably not a good one, but I believe in God all the same. This one just shows a little of my perspective on the subject.

Google Bots And Halloween: I wrote this one just for Halloween, and just putting a little spin on how some people may perceive the dreaded Google Bots.

A Poem For Halloween The Night Of Frights: Another one for Halloween, with a bit of a twist. Hopefully the wife will never see this one.

Blog me This You Blogging Fools: One of my link luv poems in which I try to share a little link luv with my blogging mates.

What Bloggers Do: Another little poem used to share link luv. I tried in both poems to include a little lesson on what blogging is about.

Sire’s So Stupid: I ain’t all that stupid but that doesn’t mean I can’t make fun of myself and how others perception of me.

To Blog Or Not To Blog, That Is The Question: I had some fun with this one. Again there is a lesson here and it was done Shakespearean style.

From Birth To Realization Of The Word: Ever wandered what your perception would be if you could recall your whole life from the moment you popped out from the womb? Perhaps it would be a little like this.

My Passionate Encounter, It’s Not All About Sex: Had some fun with this one. Originally it was a joke that I couldn’t recollect properly so I just turned it into a poem.

Blogging As A Source Of Information: This was an actual post with a poem thrown in. It’s about a remarkable damn we have in Australia that knows and reveals all. There’s a little something about blogging thrown in.

WassupBlog’s Mean Woman’s Blues: Another one I had fun with. I love Roy Orbison, but even so I couldn’t help playing with his Mean Woman Blues.

Walk A Mile In Another Person’s Shoes:  I often wondered what it might me like to be a young girl infatuated with an Asshole. This is my interpretation.

The Meaning Of Life: Has some religious connotation, but basically I wanted others to see how I sometimes feel about life in general.

Man’s Struggle To Control His Urges: Women, watch out for this one. I’ve got to admit I had a ball with this baby.

Google Sucks And How Inspiration Can Help Your Blog: Says it all. This came to life after Google ‘Google Slapped’ me.

The F Word: I find this one amusing, but then I have a warped sense of humor. Read it if you dare.

Blogs, Blogging, Young Man, Old Man, Never The Twain Shall Meet: Another blogging poem. Ever wandered what the old folk think of us bloggers, and how they are treated when asked? Maybe not exactly factual, but I reckon I have the right to some poetic licence.

Bullshit Is Not A Dirty Word: Apart from Darren Rowse and some other ‘older Aussies’ there may not be many who have heard of the Aussie Band SkyHooks. Well, they had a song called “Ego Is Not a Dirty Word“, well after I got through with it, the song had an entirely new meaning.

Dragons Creatures Of Mystery: This poem was written to portray my love of dragons and come complete with a couple of dragons in my collection.

Well, that’s it. I hope some of you took the time to check a few of those poems, and if you liked what you read you might even have Tweeted it or something.
