Many people are not yet aware that normal does not go viral.


First of all, normal is out of date. Normal has a normal head. What’s exciting about a normal head? Who cares? There are billions of normal heads in the world; and people see them everyday. It’s abnormal that is exciting; that causes attraction and can easily go viral.

My friend, move with the times. People are no longer looking for normal ways. Normal ways are common; flat; not exciting. People want what’s exciting; what’s uncommon; what’s extraordinary.

On social media, the posts that capture attention and go round the world are not the ‘normal’posts or common, ordinary things; but the things that have the unexpected twist in them; that are abnormal.

The heart of man yearns for exciting things; things that are not normal.

Take this post. It will be crazy to expect it to go viral. Why? Because it’s a normal post; straight and I can even call it flat. If you are reading it it is because you are special. Only people with very kind hearts will click like or comment after reading this.

Many people will be attracted by the title to come this way; and some will actually read a few lines but after that, they will go away without leaving a trace.

As you blog, if going viral is your dream, start to shift from the ordinary way of doing things. Gun for the extraordinary. Normal will take you nowhere. It’s abnormal that will.

This goes for creating anything: painting,drawing, composing a song, drawing a plan for a house, building a house, teaching, etc. Normal will not take you far. Try abnormal. It can take you places.

  1. You so often post poetry, that this was a very abnormal post for you. I have yet to figure out why it is some of my postings grab lost of attention, while others that I think will be popular are barely noticed. It is an intriguing question of the human mind.

  2. Abnormal may take you places that you don’t want to go. Be careful. Be kind. Be true to yourself. If you can do these things, than go abnormal and see where it leads. If it leads to an uncomfortable place, then walk back and try normal again. Normal is not bad. It is normal.
