What does that mean? I still have to take out my garbage and cut my grass…yes, I still cut my grass. I know it’s old school, but it’s exercise too.
I still pay full price at Starbucks even though I tweet about them all the time as being my daily destination.
And just because I ride around town with my Burger King Social Media Crown on, people still won’t let me out in traffic. I just wish if they were going to wave at me, they would show all their fingers…….
Wait a second Dorman, who said you were internet famous? Aren’t you less than zero?
I want to be a rock star, live large, drive big cars…..
Ok, but what does it really mean?
It doesn’t mean Jack Squat
That’s not really true; I know I like the fact certain people know my name, whether they are big time or not.
But the reality is, the only people who are keeping score are the people in here. And guess what? We are one and the same…what do you think about that?
Circular mutual admiration society? Can you say echo chamber? Weren’t you that guy/girl in high school?
But look at my reach
No chit Sherlock; at one time it was over 26 million in just Triberr alone; now dropping, but it is a self-imposed clean-up. That alone should be able to get me elected as mayor ofsomething, don’t you think? How quick do you think the front porch lights would go out if I started asking my reach for a campaign contribution?
Easy big boy, don’t bite the hand that feeds you…
But I have the secret sauce
Really? I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but you are kinda lookin’ like everybody else in here. I mean, you are talented and all that, and nobody will deny you aren’t trying hard, but I’m not feeling it. From what I can tell, there can only be one next big thing, and I’m pretty sure that is going to be me.
Have you noticed how some can pull off this trying hard thing and it’s admirable, but others doing the same thing and it’s just too much or it just doesn’t have a good feel to it? And the harder they try the more it smells?
Why is that? Is it personality? Sincerity? Perceived social standing?
Think about this, would you rather be rich or popular? And what is rich?
Do you think one million dollars is a lot of money?
A kid I coached in little league just signed a guaranteed $32.5 million dollar deal, do you think he’s feeling rich right about now?
Did you see the list of 1,426 billionaires in the world? I know one of them; personally. They live less than 2 miles from me; I coached one of their sons in basketball; and see them out socially usually once a month.
That’s B as in billion, that’s more than 999 million: I don’t think anyone needs to tell them, they know they are rich.
Fortunately, their riches do not have to come with celebrity and they can still do normal things like going out to eat and attending social events.
I’ll bet that standing shrinks your peer group by quite a bit, huh? Do you think you would have to buy some friends just so you have someone to play with? The spouse still works BTW.
How about a little test then
- Would you rather be rich or famous, and if it’s rich, what is your number?
- Would you be satisfied as a one hit wonder, or be ok with a lifetime of average?
- Have you made the quantum leap from being to doing in social yet?
Offline online, does it really even matter? And just like being rich (or not), how famous is enough? So famous you need an entourage to even go out in public? How fun would that be?
If the more famous I became, online or offline, gave me more credibility and Klout to do some good things for others, then that would be pretty cool.
What are you going to do with your internet fame?
