What the hell, I am 61 and 99.9% of the social media influencers out there will think that this is officially the sign of the Social media Influencer apocalypse. How in the hell did some old man become one of us? EWWWWWWAA!
Well, sorry kids. The old man just officially was made one. Oh sure it’s in an area kids could not give a dam about. Classic Boats, but to be fair, I don’t give a crap about your big butt, or make up tricks, fashion does and donts and I refuse to hang off a skyscraper to take a selfie. But I do love being passionate about something, and so I have tried to break every rule my decomposing brain refuses to try. For 12 years I have pounded away at one message. The love and importance of Classic Wood Speed Boats.
And last week, despite millions of readers on WoodyBoater.com, Instagram gave me the official term. YUP, I hit a whopping 10,000 followers. OH? Laughing little Mrr 5 year old that reviews toys. Hold on.. The Classic Speed boat universe is maybe, 20,000 people. 19,050 if you count the last 5 minutes you have been reading this, since that many died or forgot they liked anything.
by the way, those of you in the know, we did not cheat, buy or do any tricks to get to this number. We did it the hard way. one photo at a time. We did not even do paid reach, which is now a thing. So sorry, no russian hookers are following us, or even worse, robots! yes Robots! Its a game. Anyway..
And 10K followers in a universe of 20K is 50%, and that’s huge, and to top that off, Woody Boater the website, a daily news blog thingamajig, has around 20,000 unique visitors a month. Actually had that many in a day one day. The day we made it on CBS Sunday Morning. Its a TV show for those of you still reading under the age of 40. The TV is that big thing your parents gave you that you never even plugged in, or play games on it.
Anyway. I am now a social media influencer and I have only one concern. Will it make my butt look bigger? Am I gonna get in a fight with that girl, the one that’s boyfriends are always breaking up with? Who? Damm brain.. # TalorAwift…Ya that’s it.
