My life changing blog ...or not...

I read the book that I've got advertized on my side panel - the one by John Locke -  how he sold millions of books in mere days. I put it there as a resource for others, not to make my own million through affiliate sales. Anyway, one of the things he says to do is to write a blog that will change your life - and attract tons of attention. He did this by writing a blog about how he was influenced by a major sports guy he had never met and I've never heard of, and he wrote another about Michael J Fox. Really, the blogs weren't all that inspiring to me, but I guess they were to others because they attracted thousands to his blog and to his twitter account and these readers started buying his books by the gazillions.

Okay, that's a great idea, except, if I could think of a life changing blog that would sell my books by the millions I would have already written it!! How can I know ahead of time what is going to be life changing? I can't even write a blog that is moment changing - let alone one that results in my becoming a top selling author. So far I don't even think I've been inspiring to others and no one is buying my books because of anything I've written.

I've thought about writing a blog that is about how some famous person has inspired me, like John did.. But I tend to have aytpical inspirations, such as Mustafa Ataturk and Edith Cavell. Trust me, when I put their names in my tags section they are not going to set the twitter world afire!

Okay, I guess I'll just have to hope that I can indeed make my own millions through the coat tail affiliate sales of John Locke. In the meantime, I'll try to find inspiration in someone more popular and twitter worthy. Paris Hilton? Pippa Middleton?

Have your best day possible.
