Ha! There is no real answer. 😛 No, but for realizies. The title of this here post should be the key to writing content that people value. I wish there was a single secret or formula that you could put into a machine. I’d be feeding that machine all day! But unfortunately that’s not the case.
You see, no matter what the reason for you doing something, you have to create something that really touches people. It could be a creative piece. Or it could be something that makes people think. Whatever you write, or however you do it, has to be something that speaks to our soul.
So I can’t say that I’m expert on writing viral content, I can say that no matter the topic, I give my honest observation and opinion. Even though I don’t have a million views, I’m not sure what I’d do with them anyway, because I, like you am a fan of love. To me love comes from a small group of about 80 to 150 people. I’ve talked about this in a few of my previous posts, how it’s not about how many people love you, but how deeply they do so.
People like us are ready for the truth and I believe that people will begin to honor real value over sheer numbers of followers or numbers of tweets. The new social currency will not be quantity, it will be quality. In this day and age where people pay for time, love is the most invaluable asset.
You want to create viral content? Go ahead. But in the future those that practice developing relationships while simultaneously creating new ones will always win over the number chasers.

P.S. I’ve been a little inconsistent lately and I feel like I’ve cheated you somehow. But I’ll make it up to you I swear. I have a private list where I send daily motivational/inspirational/grab the world by the ballsational emails to. Similar to this, but with less jazz and more meat and potatoes (or veggie sausage if you’re vegan) check it out here. Talk soon…
