Whenever I have a bit of fun and create drama, people come out to say, “This isn’t self-improvement!” Here are a few facts for you.
I do not want to be Grant Cardone or Tony Robbins or Tim Ferris. They bore me to death! They also walk on egg shells lest they offend the PC Mafia. I am not a “self-help guru,” nor do I aspire to be on Oprah or to be beloved by the sackless masses.
I have a lot of fun. Danger & Play is my passion because you – and I – are hell raisers. Yes we want to be more than we are. We also enjoy ourselves while doing it!
The day Danger & Play stops being fun for me the is the day it goes offline. Yes it’s my living. I could earn far more money using my Internet skills to sell cellulite creams to desperate housewives.
I also have my political views. I do not like SJWs and people on the far left. If they could, they’d shut my websites and businesses down in a second. They are an actual enemy to me, and I take them seriously.
You may not agree with my idea of fun or my politics. Fine. There are 800+ super serious articles to read and podcasts to listen to.
Gorilla Mindset is also drama free.
Go read something you enjoy rather than cry about the 1 or 2 articles that don’t “do it” for you
Facebook far exceeds Twitter in social shares. Danger & Play is the exception.
You are not sharing my posts under your real names on Facebook. Twitter traffic blows away Facebook traffic because you don’t want people to know you read me. Read: Why do journalists prefer Facebook to Twitter.
Compare the traditional social metrics with mine. Even when I work hard on Facebook, Twitter blows it away in terms of social referral traffic.
Twitter is 46% of D&P’s referral traffic. Facebook is less than 13% of social traffic.
That’s cool. It really is. Life is complicated and no one owes me anything.
You are under no obligation to do anything for me.
Plus, Danger & Play is sort of like a secret society. I pride myself on being “the guy that everyone reads but won’t admit to reading.”
But if you think my articles are so great (which you say when complaining about my dramatic articles) and you’re too afraid to share them due to the blowback you may receive, kindly do not tell me how to promote myself or my writing.
My Seth Rogen posts have sold more books in a week than I usually sell in a month.
Why is that? Book sales are based on one of two factors: Raw number of readers and conversion rates. That’s the business side of my writing. If you want to sell books you need more readers or a higher conversion rate. It’s that simple.
The Seth Rogen posts have seen spectacular traffic – so much traffic that my entire site crashed and is still buggy as heck.
A high conversion rate is great. I wish 100% of people bought Gorilla Mindset. It’s unlikely that even 10% of regular readers have.
Again, you are not required to buy anything. That’s not the point.
This is not to address people who read. It’s to people who read for free and then complain.
There are over 800 other articles to read. Drama free.
There are over 100 podcasts to listen to. Drama free.
Read those articles, apply those podcasts, and then skip over the less than 1% of articles that are dramatic.
If you are buying books, sharing articles under your real name, and leaving ratings and reviews, then please feel free to complain about the free content that appears.
Otherwise I’m not interested in the complaints.
You have your life to live. Linking to me might make someone think less of you. You might actually be forced to defend your views.
I get it.
I also have a life to live.
You do your thing and I’ll do mine.
That is all.
