This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections. 

Today’s Prompt:  Joe Nichols said, “Being an entertainer includes knowing how to connect with an audience.” Can you be a good entertainer without the connection?

Sure, someone could be funny or talented, but without having an audience to connect to, what is the value of the entertainment content? Personally, I don’t think you can entertain without having a connection.

Think about it, if you are not engaging with an audience, regardless of how awesome your material is, there is no value. You have to be able to read your audience and know what is working and what isn’t.

I say that…and here I am, trying to engage you readers but can’t get a complete read on what makes you want to come back for more. Some of you love it all. Some of you are here to keep connected to the kids. Some of you want recipes or Pittsburgh stuff. But, most importantly, you come for the entertainment my words provide.

Okay, I will be honest. If you didn’t stop by, I would still write. I do it for my kids, but mostly for me to clear my brain. But, I love seeing that you keep coming back for more. For that, I thank you.

As I think about the things that entertain me, I definitely stick with the things I am connected to. Twitter. Fellow bloggers. Bad TV to zone to. Country music. Drake. Billy Hill’s tattoo work. Deals. And in the end, it boils down to the makers and creators of this content have something that keeps me coming back for more…a connection.
