I’m just gonna let the Bart Simpson do its own thing – it’s taken over my blog – it’s like an unstoppable train – I’m not sure I understand it – but most of my readership seems to be coming from people searching for Bart Simpson – and all because I suggested he looked a little jaundiced – oh, and I added a pic.
It’s the pic that’s doing it. In fact I did a search in Google for “Bart” and at the very top of the results screen there were a few images of Bart – and one of them was a direct link to this blog – and that out of over 10 million results returned.
Perhaps if I had employed this knowledge in my business I may have generated much greater response for my clients and more revenue for me. Hey I still can – don’t tell anyone my secret – least of all Google – they may not realise that I have cracked their code.
Truth is, I should have just asked Weedy. My 6 year old boy. He would have known. Y’see yesterday he said to me he would like to do a Powerpoint presentation about electricity.
Hey DK, I hope this is not a cheap shot to boost the ratings
Eh, don’t you have a Buzz Lightyear you can play with?
So I got the laptop out, opened Powerpoint and he chose a background design. I showed him how to find images on Google, how to create Custom Animation to make his images appear with “magic” effects in the presentation and how to add text.
I left him to go and make his dinner which I knew he would go “yeeeuuuccchhhh!!!!!!” to.
After half an hour, I came back to find he had created the most amazing, informative and visually stunning (for a 6 year old) Powerpoint presentation all about plugs and sockets, pylons, cables, batteries, appliances – all flying into the screen from various angles.
Ok, I did not explain to him the symptoms of Death By Powerpoint – he doesn’t need to know about that for another 10 years or so.
After he ran through the show for me – I said “Well Done”, now it’s Dinner Time.
He came into the kitchen and saw what I had made him – “Carne”. That is, Chili con Carne – without the Chili.
“yeeeuuuccchhhh!!!!!!” he said, “I don’t want that.”
That’s fine – I said – removing it and putting it to the side. You don’t have to eat anything if you don’t want to.
But I do want to.
Oh, you do? Ok here it is.
What do you think?
Yummy he said.
Can I have some more?
See? He’s still a kid
Now there… are 3…. steps to… carry a donor card – ooh, wap wap!
