Blogging the John Cougar Way

Greetings from IVP’s friendly online publicist! Recently I offered some advice for authors about how to effectively use the tools that Amazon provides to their best promotional advantage. Today I’d like to talk a bit about good blogging technique, so that if you have a blog or are considering starting one, you can ensure that you’re not inadvertently irritating to your readers. And in an effort to make the advice a bit more memorable, I’ve included approximately ten tips for you in the song below.


I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

(I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy)

I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone who knows the meaning of,

uh Now don’t be lazy


Well I’ve been trolling the blogs in the mornin’

Reading through the many posts at night

I’m so fed up, my mind is all filled up

Hey I’m so tired of people not doin’ it right


Blogging without bein’ analytical

Failing to make any point concisely

And all them pundits tryin’ to be so political

Inflammatory hype that don’t worry ’bout the facts precisely


I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone to teach me and show me the way

I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone who knows the meaning of,

uh Now don’t be lazy


Well I’m hoping that you’ll write something new every day

You’ll stay on topic, provide helpful links, and focus (Keep it up!)

With a solid plan of what you’d really like to say

Instead of rambling on with hocus pocus, Please don’t make it up


I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone who knows the meaning of,

uh Now don’t be lazy


(instrumental interlude)


I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone to teach me and show me the way

I need a blogger that won’t drive me crazy

Someone who knows the meaning of,

uh Now don’t be lazy


You betcha
