      I guess that a blogger should have an inspiration for him/her to create blogs that will attract readers to read his/her blogs. Having inspiration in life will drive you to be more active and full of love in what you are doing.

        Having a passion for anything you is essential in my opinion. This is especially true with bloggers, since it involves consistent action over time. Without passion it becomes just work and its likely that you’ll fade with time.

        Thanks for the comment, Ron!

      I think there is no alternative to a girl friend in real life and honest girl friend is actual asset of life. A blog is nothing without visitor and in blogging world they are more than a girl friend.Online business of a blogger goes to an end with out visitors. Because of importance of visitors some bloggers has started introduction of their top commentators of a week.

      Good comments of visitors also become a part of organic searches that is another benefit because of visitors.

        Its true, Jamal… a person can live without a mate, but a blog cannot live without readers. Well said!

      Hi, Bob,
      I was attracted by the headline to see what this post is about and then I realized I already commented on it when you were guest posting on Jane’s blog.
      I only didn’t have any idea that the whole article was actually inspired by your son being in love. I think it is great you are supportive with it-I know many parents who see the first girlfriends or boyfriends of their children as the biggest threat…which is absolutely ridiculous, in my point of view.
      Hope your boy is happy in his relationship. He sure does a great job in inspiring you.
      Best wishes!

        Hi Kristina,

        Well, the bad news is he broke up with his GF right after I posted this…. hope I didn’t jinx it. But he learns lessons well and he’ll be fine.

        Glad my headline attracted you to re-read the post. My copywriting courses must be paying off! 🙂

        Thanks for the support and for your comments here on this blog!

      Great post Bob, congratulations on your first guest post! I enjoyed your article and I think you’ve really provided some excellent tips on courting audiences. Thanks for the inspiration.

      • Bob

        I love that, Marty….”courting audiences”. Yes, that is exactly what we are doing!

        Thanks for your kind words of support, Marty!

      This can work with a wide variety of friends and family. I was with a friend about 2-3 weeks ago and he missed this perfect opening to talk to a women he was interested in. I gave him non-stop ribbing about the fact that he should just go out there and talk to the girl, as well as just some tips on how to do it.

      • Bob

        Very true, Andy… it works with other types of relationships as well.

        Glad you set your friend straight! 🙂

        Thanks for your comment, Andy!

    • Natasha

      Wonderful job on the first guest post Bob, really loved the comparison. As I mentioned in my comment on the actual post, aren’t you glad your son got a new girlfriend? Great inspiration for a post.

      Love it and hope to see more from you in the future.


      • Bob

        Thanks for the kind words of support, Adrienne.

        As a side note, unfortunately my son broke up with his girlfriend right after I published this post…. bad karma? I hope not.

        Thanks for the comment, Adrienne!

      Hey Dr Clarke,

      What a fantastic analogy. I can just imagine you and Rosemary teasing your son. I remember those days 🙂

      Well done for promoting your very first guest post here on your blog. I absolutely loved it, shared and commented.

      Happy guest blogging,

      • Bob

        Thanks for the support, Mavis… and for sharing and commenting as well.

        I had so much fun writing this post. The more I thought of it and started writing, the easier it was to find parallels that just made sense.

        Appreciate the comment here, Mavis!

    • Rick Lelchuk


      What a great idea to be a guest blogger and expose yourself to so many new people. And your topic and analogy is superb. Congrats for breaking the ice and expanding yourself.


      • Bob

        Thanks, Rick… it wasn’t difficult once I decided to do it. But it was new and uncharted territory, so sometimes we procrastinate because it’s more comfortable.

        Thanks for your support Rick… it means alot!

    • Oliver Tausend

      Hi Bob,

      you did a great job on your first guest post. And what a lovely analogy 🙂

      I remember that time very well 22 years ago…and we are recalling it as often as we can. I can’t tell how often we fell in love again with each other 😉

      Thanks for sharing your insights and congratulations to your son, you shouldn’t tease hime 😉

      Take care


      • Bob

        Hi Oliver,

        It sounds like you and your wife have a beautiful, loving relationship! And I’m sure that, like anything else worthwhile, you guys worked through struggles to get there. We all do, but those that continue to work through the struggles will, in the end find the success and pleasure they covet.

        Thanks for the support, Oliver!
