Millie’s post was a way of paying tribute and homage to the heavyweights of our community who have done the hard yards and gained thousands of followers. My post was a tongue-in-cheek, lament at being one of the ‘lightweights’ on WP with very few followers and a shocking Napoleon complex.
Imagine my surprise then when ‘Social Outcasts’ resonated with some of you and I found myself surrounded by fellow outcasts eager to say hi, can we play with you?
So now, being the delinquent despot that I am, I’d like to invite all of the social outcasts of WordPress to “introduce themselves to the world”. Okay, not quite the world but 112 people who follow my blog. I invite you, my outcast friends, to join the Outcast’s Bloghouse.
What’s the secret knock you ask? Are there any club dues? Can I be the treasurer?
Let me explain. Once a week I will feature your full bio piece on my blog and welcome you into the Outcast’s Bloghouse. I will assign you a title within the club for you to treasure and lord over all whom you have contact with. And no, CEO is already taken (I am and always will be the Childish Evil Overlord).
Why do this? Why not?
What do you get out of it? My vast, vast audience… okay, maybe not so vast. How about a plate of cookies instead with the promise of guest posts, themed writing prompts and other good stuff later on.
What’s that? Can you join the Bloghouse if you have 20,000 followers? No! Go start your own club. Nah, of course you can! All clubhouses need a nerd to make fun of! We’ll just call you Vern…
If you’d like to be part of the insanity simply email me your full bio piece to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Outcast’s Bloghouse.
Not sure what to put in your bio? Check out mine here as the first inaugural member of the Outcast’s Bloghouse.
See you behind the shelter sheds fellow Outcasts!
– The Outcast’s Bloghouse CEO, (Childish Evil Overlord)
