Once upon a time there passed by that road a certain young nobleman on his way over seas to seek wisdom. Now night was falling and the youth began to think of a tavern at which he might rest him. The road between its walls of marble was deep and strange. Its clearings also seemed vacant to him despite the great multitude dressed as for a festival, passing and repassing. He wished he were not alone. At length he came nigh to a place called the Haymarket because that which is sold there is not hay. Whereabouts was the lair of a fearful ogress who fed on the rich gamey flesh of young fighting men, whose rusting arms were said to lie in heaps through all her house.
While the youth was wishing ardently that he were not alone in this dark place, he rubbed a piece of gold. Then suddenly there appeared before him, all aglitter, a lady looking quietly into his eyes.

More filters. Sort order. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About Patrick Scarlet. If there is no passion, it can get dull. My fav posts are usually rants! As neither a class clown or a valedictorian I have always wondered how to gain attention. I have been smart, but not grade smart. I have been fun and funny but not to attract attention, just to have fun.
Now I am beginning to realize how this all fits in with becomming a serious blogger and infoprenuer.
Courage and Clowns by Lee Stewart Gilmore, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
I think the sweet spot must be somewhere in the middle. Maybe that geeky homecomming king that we sometimes get. Who is not the smartest but when he is in your class he is the first one you go to for help. The one who you know is going to make it in life. As a Valedictorian of my High School class, I can attest to the fact that there is at least a kernel of truth to this post.
BWW Blog: The Courage of Clowns and Lovers
Blogging is indeed about being interesting and making sure that you reach your audience. Over-analysis can be crippling. Actually, I have found the lessons I have learned from reading CopyBlogger to be some of the most useful I have found. That, and my wife is all too happy to function as my editor. Just another reason that I love her. Another challenge is being found by the target readers for blogs without the established readership base.
When I took creative license with blog titles, for example, I had more traffic, but not of people who were interested in real estate. I continue to learn from your blog. Thanks for keeping it non-boring:. Richard — good point. But I think the idea of the post is we have something to learn from the class clowns as far as drawing attention to ourselves.
People seem to forget this blog started only slightly over two years ago with zero readers… just like everyone else starts. I truly believe people are looking for super content. Not a sales pitch about how your selling something content.. I was the valedictorian who always got sat by the class clowns. Mostly what I did was laugh at their antics.
Because they were funny.

And a bit of their snarkiness rubbed off on me. If you want to build a faithful audience that keeps coming back and tells others about you, drop the SEO titles.
Put those on your content site and product pages designed to bring in first-time traffic. I was valedictorian church school — class of 8. My grades were the best in school history and could not be ignored but I was the class clown. So, I was valedictorian. Well, my sister was the valedoriun… how do you spell that? I was definitely more of the clown and I do find myself blogressing into silliness. Check out this post evidencing the fact…. I agree with this article!
Great post. Wanted to thank you for this piece. This really made me rethink my blogging. Very well put and entertaining too! You could not have gotten the point any clearer.
The complicated things are always so simple. Nice post there Jonathan. This is a perfect blog. I remember myself being a class clown while I still in college.
Quite a lot although not all of valedictorians succeeded because they paid attention to getting good grades, pleasing external authority figures, and fitting into the box. They became very good at simply repeating what authority figures told them to say. They focused on growing and exploring, even if that meant bucking the system.
Those are the folks who will have something truly new and exciting to say, instead of simply repeating what perceived authority figures have already said.
Now more than ever, creativity really counts in an blogger. Who has the time to read anything else? I thoroughly enjoyed this write-up! So eye-opening. I stopped blogging several months back because I am the thinker who analyzes everything, even to the point of speaking metaphorically. I was giving lessons. I was beginning to bore myself.
Recently, I got back into it and just flowed. I have more to say now than ever before and it is invigorating! I completely love myself now. I write what comes to mind.
