Ok, Im feeling a little lag with my readers attention (call it intuition), what can I do to make this more interesting? Hire a principal blogger? No, whats the point, so impersonal? Stop blogging? What, stop talking? Insert a bunch of other blogger articles, sure... a few would be fun. However, I think blogging a little intrigue may help...
Twittering...ok, let me tell you, Im a little obsessed in stirring Mellow around the Twitter "pot" right now, just in the last 24 hours, our Twitter account has improved by over 200% in 4 of the 5 categories (the fifth needing almost no improvement still went up over 15%). There are actually multiple sites that measure this, and I barely know how to Tweet, just wait 'til I get warmed up! This rapid success does come with a price though, I have not showered or have barely left the house in two days, writing this out loud, I am even more disgusted but I am EMERGING (thats a technical Tweeting term btw) into a Twitter powerhouse, an honorable self mention...and my hair thanks me for being able to bask in its own oils that help it maintain a lovely sheen (am I officially guilty of TMI)! Just for the record, I did place and receive a few very important phone calls, and I also worked on Mellow regarding multiple facets (ouch, guilt can bite hard) amongst the barking dogs, delivery drivers (how much can one street of houses need) and landscaper madness going on all day around me.
**side note...Can all this info be held against me at a later, more vulnerable time? I always wonder this when writing, how much to share, what not to mention...this is the very reason I have absolutely NO childhood journals, petrified of any one knowing my deepest thoughts, well this is a good start I suppose in releasing my inhibitions and any "coolness" I may have had left (is that a word anyone older than 10 uses, goes to show you, kids rob you of this long before I was ready to admit it!). I have always taken pride in my mysterious side, which is translated into "why is she so secretive?" so here I am ready to bare it all in order to entertain my readers (still not sure I have any of those). But in the beginning when I started this blog, I did state or promise (hmmmm, my memory is foggy) that I would blog about EVERYTHING that has to do with creating Mellow! Up until now, I have been hiding behind the "opening up" fear and only blogged straight forward info, well that changes today or I have begun ranting instead, either way in addition to the beverage info, will now be rambling blogging as well (quick turn on the tv, this news had to make the headlines)! Where is Scarlett when you need her...I hear her voice in my head..."I do declare...", she is the master at "self serving" behavior (a term I learned from American Idol, ok now I am saying too much that can and will be held against me at a later date, that is, if any reader has made it this far into the blog!)
Getting back to Tweeting...this growth spurt for Mellow is a big deal (but probably not to anyone else yet), creating the Mellow buzz that is, well, buzzing and being buzzed about is in fact quite exciting! We have been mentioned by some pretty amazing (and much more popular than us) people in less than a few days!! Call me crazy but I think we even have another company that already has a relaxation drink on the market, a bit irritated by our imminent arrival. They mentioned us in a Tweet and due to the wording at the beginning of the Tweet..."YOU can find us online too" (duh!) I think it was a little passive aggressive if you ask me, wait is any one asking me? Which brings me to our next topic...
I have never experienced so much one sided communication, is any one listening, is that even the appropriate question? I am still trying to figure out how to measure this? Are you, my ghost readers, suppose to leave behind comments that I can snicker about and exclaim, "Im so misunderstood", (about what I couldnt possibly tell you) all the while glowing that someone took the time to notice my blog?? I dont know but I am working on getting to the bottom of this, it will just take a little more time than I had expected, after all I have alot of spam to get through, Twitter comes with some interesting followers, the most unique yet was this morning, one that I cannot tell you about no matter how much I want to share it, but I will say this...if I was in need of some female "friends", I would be Hugh Hefner in about 2 hours!
Thank you to the few of you (you know who you are, even if I dont) that do take the time to read about all we are doing, we appreciate the support...even though my heart is in a jesting mood, the leaps and bounds Mellow has taken the last two weeks is seriously AMAZING!
Stay tuned...have to go, I haven't Tweeted for as long as this has taken me to write...can anyone say withdrawals??
See you on Twitter... http://twitter.com/DrinkMellow
Forever grateful (you got this far),
