    Default Channeling Forum Energy? The True path to being a legend online . . .

    For those who succeed in starting very popular threads out there consistently: How did you do it? Do you see a pattern of any kind? Tips for improving discourse or just flooding the site with well-constructed threads on relevant and thoughtful topics?

    I haven't started a lot of successful threads, and I can tell you why.

    1. Most of my topics are fairly bland.

    2. My writing style is not particularly engaging.

    3. I don't put too much thought into creating threads.

    4. I put little outside research into them.

    5. Often I'm not that interested in what I have to say.

    Although you can't really correlate writing to functions, I'm going to go ahead and do it, and say that most of my threads are just Ti. Sometimes I throw a little generic Fe in there for grease (like in this one, one of my better jobs if I do say so myself), but generally there just isn't much there in terms of either style or substance.

    My own theory is that the best threads either touch on an issue important to lots of people (Fi connection) or they have relevant information (Te research). Preferably both.

    If you haven't had much success creating threads either, pitch in your ideas on why it hasn't worked. Give me a list of five things you do badly.

    If you have had success creating threads, give me whatever you have for me.

    Being a legend online is so 2011. Everyone just hates you in the end, set your sites higher, or take a writing class if you are that desperate to publish things people notice.

    Popular threads are usually not good threads. I could go into more detail regarding outline, topic, wording, silliness, but I just don't find this interesting enough.

    Make friends with the opinion makers, whoever they might be, and get them to back you up to artificially amp up the popularity of your creation.

    Strive for understanding, not popularity.

    What's this? If that is literal, it's not correct. If it is figurative, I don't know what it means.

    IF you want to be a legend you have to seek some sort of oracle and then put all your faith and trust in to her/his opiate induced visions/prophecies.
    "i shut the door and in the morning
    it was open
    -the end"




    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Half of your post reads as though you want popularity for its own sake, and half as though you want it for something 'good,' such as sharing a valuable insight and watching some meaningful discussion arise from it.

    Popularity's a piece of cake. Clickbait is pretty easy. Exploiting human nature is pretty easy. Tossing a trollbone out there is pretty easy. Grassrooting is pretty easy.

    I could point out that "popular doesn't mean best lol" or whatever, but that's not very interesting. If you want the 'good' kind of popularity:

    1. Find or generate an idea that'll probably be of interest to your target audience.
    2. Package that idea in a way that's digestible but that doesn't ruin the integrity of the idea.
    3. Continue to engage in the discussion, rather than 'set it and forget it.'
