I happen to think that Six LDS Writers and a Frog is one of the coolest blogs around. It stuns me when I go to conferences and find a person or two who have never read this blog. So I think we need to do a little blog pimpin' around here. Shout our blog from the rooftops. Hike up our traffic counts. Get some blogvertising going. I mean, experts say to make comments on other blogs, register with technorati, twitter about the blog, etc., but I think we frogbloggers can do advertising things on our own, too.
We could attract the marathon crowd by having Jeff Savage wear a jersey decorated with frogs and our web address.
Rob could attract the street crowd by standing on street corners and running frog races with the winner receiving a beautifully handcrafted froggy fun pack created by Kerry Blair.
Stephanie could hand out cards at her elderly care center, or ask her college age daughter to wear a frogblog sticker on her backpack.
Sariah and I could create baby crackers shaped like frogs with our web address on the back. Of course the parents would have to read the web address before the child put it in their mouths since they go soggy very quickly and the letters would dissolve.
Since Rob is also self-proclaimed “eye candy” then perhaps he could get in touch with his frog self, create some frog bling, diamond encrusted of course, with our web address and frog prominently displayed. He would probably wear his hat backwards and start saying, "yo froggy," to everyone he meets. Maybe for authenticity he could jump around a lot.
Kerry Blair could organize a rally for the Frogger video game to be declared the official cure for writer’s block and have the credits roll with our web address when we win.
Have us all mutter, "Who Let the Frogs Out," whenever we're out shopping so people will ask us what we're saying and we can tell them about the blog.
If all that fails, I think we’d have to go with our best blogger showing off for the ladies.
If you’re not into that bad boy image, however, perhaps you like a frog with a sense of style. Our frog is versatile and aims to please!
Whatever your preference, I think this blog could be “un-frog-ettable” with just a little word of mouth from our "fly" bloggers. And of course, our loyal cool beans readers.
As Ice T might say, “That’s pimpin’”
