You say you want more reach and audience? Really?!

(Castleville Players can skip on down to the next section)

It is estimated that 500 Million human beings play Facebook Games. Castleville, FarmvilleBackyard Monsters, etc. Five minutes ago, I noticed that 6,713,710 people like Castleville. The likes seem to be ticking up by the million every week. I have 500 new Facebook friend requests in my Facebook add list because of my last blog post about Castleville.

Did I mention that I wrote it last week?!

Give people something that they want. Give it to them right now when they want it!

And, maybe, they will also discover you have interesting things to say.

About life, love, blogging, friendship, money, corruption, a broken marriage, a hero, Darth AOL, PHP, online strategy, or whatever. [laughing]

Oh – did I mention that there ain’t twenty million or more… people and bots blogging and tweeting about Facebook games. Blogs about Facebook games are more likely to give meaningful answers – unlike all that kitsch that is pumped out for subjects like blogging, social media, seo, online marketing, and small-time online entrepreneurship?

That reminds me of what my friend Bill Dorman is saying:

Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers – what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

That’s the social media cheat. And it’s as trivial as it is epic. Did I say, cheat? Err, it’s a boon and a take away.

Other blog posts (by me) that people love:

Castleville: Guide, Cheats, Friends, and 100 Free Energy

Free Energy for Zynga’s Facebook Game, Castleville

The Castleville energy links are expected to expire within one week of the publication of this blog post. However, you can only use five or so per 24 hours – assuming you have not used any other energy links from your Castelville feed. I hope you get the most out of this as you can. Each active link will provide 10 energy to your kingdom if your are not at your collection limit. I recommend growing a lot of grapes for making energy potions.

Is this Stan?

Will the real Stan Faryna please stand up!
