I broke into Tier 1 with ‘What is the Best Song to use for the Tush Push Line Dance?’


Note (added on 07.01.2015) — This blog post was written when I was writing on a website called “Squiddo.”  The stats all refer to the article as it appeared over on that site.  The website no longer exists.  I’m leaving this here because, well I’m proud of those stats.

The good news is that I’m in the process of re-creating the articles I had on Squidoo here on my blog.  So here are three Tush Push articles for you to enjoy:

or if you want to read the old blog post keep scrolling…  🙂

I Finally Have a Tier 1 Article!

Awesome Thumbs Up Sketch (CC)I would never have thought that THIS article would be the one that shot up into Teir 1.

But it has.  Who knew!

That is thanks in part mainly to the readers of Carol’s World Line Dance Newsletter. 

She was kind enough to post a link to the article in the Newsletter and her readers have pushed my article up to the very top of the charts on Squidoo.

Today’s Stats / Rankings:

Ranked #1,045 overall
Ranked #50 in Entertainment
Ranked #2 in Entertainment >> Dance
Ranked #1 in Entertainment >> Dance >> Other Dance Topics

Diva Kitty (CC)There have been 430 visits to the page since I first published it on May 3rd.  Wow!  If every one of the people who follow my blog, my facebook page, twitter, etc, would go and visit the the article then hit all the social “share” and “like” buttons, I think I would swoon with excitement.

If you’ve never seen a 299 lb hairy man swoon, believe me it is quite a sight.  Then I would need, of course to fortify myself with a Mint Julip!  LOL

CHALLENGE!!!!  IF  the total number of hits goes from 430 to 700 by 10pm CST on Friday, I will upload a video to Youtube of me SWOONING!   That means that 270 of my 800 friends and followers want to see me make a clown of myself in public to go to the article and do the whole “clicky-clicky” thing (and maybe take some polls and leave comments?  [inserting pitiful hopeful look]

Excerpt from the introduction of my “Tush Push” article:

Line DancersAmong line dancers, there is one dance that reigns supreme: The Tush Push. This dance has been around since the very earliest days of the period where “line dances” became formally recognized as a separate and distinct dance genre.

Learning the Tush Push is a rite of passage for new line dancers. Having learned it, you are no longer a person who does a line dance on occasion at parties or weddings, you have become a “line dancer.” 🙂

Because the Tush Push has been around for, literally, decades, and because of the way the dance is structured, the dance can be danced to hundreds, if not thousands of songs.

Below you will see some fun polls, some cool photos, a bit-o-drama, and a list some music to which the Tush Push can be danced. VOTE for your favorite and if you don’t see your favorite, don’t be shy, let me know about it and…
