Asking Nicely!



May I be bold? May I be brash?
I’m not asking you for cash.
All I ask is a little click,
A little like, a little tick.

I have a task which needs your aid ~
To launch a web-site and persuade
The public that my books are great.
So please don’t pause; don’t hesitate.

It’s for the google S.E.O.,
To tell the mommies where to go
In search of fun for their little one.
To trace a place where tales are spun.

Adventure, learning, rhyming too ~
Imagination, things to do.
So help me please, you have my thanks,
To boost my site and how it ranks
With Google, the new god of now.
Please follow the link. I’ll show you how.

When you arrive
Oh! Please contrive
To tweet your greet and tick the like
And watch my rating jump and spike!

About Dr Niamh

When I was a little girl (a very, very long time ago), I used to love learning new, really big words like ‘discombobulate’. As I grew, my love of words grew too, until I loved them so much, I could not stop writing them down. One day, as I was scribbling a particular word, a very peculiar thing happened. The word shouted at me, “Stop! Don’t put me there!” As you can imagine, I was shocked and nearly fell off my chair. When I recovered somewhat, I said to the word, “Could you stop shouting, please? I am not used to it.” Can you guess what happened next? No! I thought not. The word said, “I might be small, but I will misbehave if you do not use me properly. I will not tell the story you would like me to tell. I will say something entirely different!” I dropped my pen. I hoped that by dropping my pen, the word would stop talking. Alas! It did not. It carried on chitterchobbling, even after the ink had dried. I was in a pickle. I could not allow my words to run away with my story, now could I? I don’t know about you, but when this sort of thing happens, there is only one thing left to do if you prefer not to spend your time arguing. “Very well,” said I. “I will do as you ask if you will just be quiet and allow me to concentrate.” Since that day, I have been paying special attention to every word I invite into my stories. After all, a story should say exactly what it means to say and not be led astray. With love from Dr. Niamh, Ph.D in Learning Through The Imagination and Founder of Dr Niamh Children's Books.

    I tried. Your link doesn’t work. It looks like you put in a comma instead of a dot after www.
