You know, in piano they have all those 'pp' for barely can hear ya and then the 'p' for 'ahhh....there's sound. Then there's 'mf' for hhmmm...music and 'f' for whoa! what's up your ass, buddy. I don't know if they have 'ff' which could mean bring the effing house down!
These are called dynamics and I am have been pummeling it into my kids' heads right from the start. They ask me why and I answer, 'it gives the music expression and it helps people who are listening to the music that you're playing a lot of emotion and feeling.
Then you have.....
Singing (which is some sort like dancing and acting)
No emotion and it's not going to win you the soddest version of a potpourri holder. Voice and voume control for singing is of utmost importance, you don't have it and you might as well be listening to a 5 year old play the violin for the very first time. Nadah.
Acting, you wood, you pay the price of being called a statute and dancing, it's all about flow (not blow) and being completely into it, especially if you're dancing with your partner.
The more in-the-groove you are, don't you think the food is tastier? The more passion you pour into it, the savory and mouth-watering it becomes.
I can name many other things in life that really needs passion - like sex but I won't. :-)
Life, to me, is about passion.
Which brings to me to what I do best. Writing. The reason why many people don't succeed in their writing is because of one simple reason, they lack passion and that is why, sometimes when I hit a really big writer's block, I stop writing or complain a lot or ask my friends to 'challenge me' to write something really creative about something really odd or something that is completely not me.
This brings the passion out of me, you see.
If you want your writing to be good or to get noticed, you need to grab the reader by the neck and most of the time, it involves putting a little bit of yourself into the stuff that you're writing. You hook your arm over their neck and get their attention....READ THIS, READ THIS, YOU BAFFOON!!, the article would say.
The number of bad articles out there is increasing....gawrd, they're giving some of us (I am not boasting but those of us who are of the same opinion) a bloody fright!
You want to write well, you've got to give it your bloody soul and make people sit up and read. Then what's the point of writing it in the first place. Yes, I know....for search engine optmization. I mean, like....what? You think Google's stupid these days? They're friggin' smart people behind there and I can attest to that. I had my ass kicked a couple of times for trying to be funny. So, I love my ass so much more these days. :-)
In anything in your life that you do, you need to feel the fire of desire....the burning sensation that sets you off like a rocket being launched and make you yell WWWWAAAAHHHHOOOOO!!!! and then you end up with something really worth it.
Is it then any wonder that the most popular blogs in the world are very personal and passionate blogs?
This serves as a reminder to those who are trying to propel their businesses, websites or blogs into the next level with article marketing and social media marketing.
No passion, you might as well be filing your nails.
