5 Ways Marketers are Making You Addicted to Dragons

We all know that marketing firms have been in the pocket of Big Dragon for decades.

But what you may not know, is how they utilize their skills in service of them.

But fear not, I am here to fill you in!

5. Fire

As anyone who works in media will tell you: Fire catches the eye!

4. Bright Colors

Dragons come in many different colors, from the classic red, to blue, to golden.

Their fabulous!

3. Variety

But it is not only color that differs from dragon to dragon, but also abilities, form, and allegiance.

We are all used to the evil two-winged red fire-dragon, but some may prefer the good four-winged blue ice-dragon, or the morally ambivalent no-winged white time-dragon.

2. Search Engine Optimization

The dragon marketing department have done a lot of work to get dragon SEO up to snuff.

As a result, searching for “dragons” on any major search engine will result in you finding impressive facts and pictures of dragons.

1. Force

Don’t like dragons?

Then dragons don’t like you.

And you don’t want that!


My January In Blogging

SindrElf blogging in January

This month I have let my writing suffer, as a result of trying to market my blog.

 

I don’t think any of the blog-posts I made this month holds a candle to my best articles.

I have put blog-posts on StumbleUpon and Scoop.It, I’ve joined a few blog-groups on Facebook, I’ve made a Pinterest profile and I spent an ungodly time researching and trying to take part in blog-parties (only to find out that blog-parties favours DIY and homemaking types of blogs, not the type of pop-culture stuff I like to write about).

And as I have neglected actually writing long cool articles, I have been largely unable to tap into my previously biggest viewer source, Reddit.

I have even neglected finishing my comic book script, after finishing the rough draft.

 

I hope that some of the groundwork I did this month will have been worth it.

I already feel happy about having a Pinterest profile up and running, and I don’t think I would have made it if I had not read some of the stuff I read on those Facebook groups, so some of it was valuable.

But for now, I kind of feel like I wasted this blogging-month.
