I haven’t blogged since Valentine’s Day. It’s been a long time. Gone but not forgotten, I hope. Why not today, I think, to resume? I am checking out the site changes for the first time in a while. Happy Easter to you.
Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is the word “climbing.” In addition to being Easter time, this has also been the weekend of Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. So I reflect… what is going on at the WordPress offices? Why has a word like “climbing” been opted for as today’s prompt?
Climbing, to me, suggests a few different things, but the notion of climbing I want to hone on is the idea of social climbing. Social climbing is when you network upwardly. It’s when you reach out to people higher up on the food chain with the hope you will join the ride. It’s pretty common. What’s all this business with social media? It’s the definition of social climbing. A friend request is seldom just a friend request. But maybe I’m cynical… or a little too honest.
Anyone would any sense would be doing that kind of social climbing, in fact, because unless you are of a lackadaisical mind like me, you certainly should mean business. You are a somebody, I think. In fact, and I guarantee little about life, but if you are looking at this humble blog post of mine, I would venture to say that you are indeed a somebody. I don’t get a lot of blog traffic, which is generally the opposite intention of publishing a blog, but I will offer you this, in exchange for your time: if you are seeing this post, you indeed matter. I’m not the only one who will propose this to you, but in your case, at this moment, rest assured that you are of importance. So climb away.
I’m being a little facetious, but if you liked this post, feel free to “like,” “follow,” and/or “comment.” See you in the revision stage.
