Have you heard of the “Tush Push?”


Line DancersAmong line dancers, there is one dance that reigns supreme: The Tush Push.

This dance has been around since “a long time ago in a galaxy far away” back when “line dances” became formally recognized as a separate and distinct dance genre.

All kidding aside, for many new line dancers, learning the Tush Push is a rite of passage.

Having learned it, you are no longer a person who does a line dance “every once in a while” or only at parties or weddings. Knowing the Tush Push means you have become a “line dancer.” 🙂

The Tush Push is one of the oldest, most popular, best known, line dances in the world!

Because the Tush Push has been around for, Read the rest of this entry

The Tush Push — Everything you didn’t know you wanted to know.


Three Articles out of One:

Recently Google burped.  And the whole Internet Community freaked out.

Seriously!  It is kind of like the punch line from that old joke:

Q: Where does a 500 lb gorilla sit?

A: Wherever it wants!

The fact of the matter is that Google is the biggest most powerful search engine for the Internet on the Planet.  And when Google changes how it calculates page rank, hundreds of thousands of very smart people go to work trying to figure out why their web pages are no longer ranking high and they try to figure out how to get their pages to rank high again!

I write online at Squidoo.com and the folks at Squidoo do all that “figuring out” bit for me.  Over the past few months, Squidoo has been changing things up a LOT!  All in an effort to regain the lost ground from Google’s last ranking system change.

I’ve actually been very lucky.  Most of the changes at Squidoo have not affected any of my lenses.  None of my lenses were caught by Squidoo’s new rules designed to weed out spammers and retain only original creative content.

In fact my lenses were moving up in rank and getting paid more as Squidoo weeded out all the garbage lenses.  Woo Hoo!

Well at least until Read the rest of this entry

Looking for “Cruisin” Song Recommendations


There’s a Whole Lot of Dancin’ Goin’ On!

I posted a request to the World Line Dance Newsletter for people to send me the names of the songs that they use in their area to dance the “Cruisin” line dance.

If you have come here to my blog in response to the notice in Carol’s Newsletter, just put the name and artist of the song down below in the comments section.  Or you can use my “Contact Form” if you like.  Either way will get the name of the song to my email inbox.

If you’re a follower of my blog or follow me on Twitter, then I extend the same invitation to you.  Send me your favorite “Cruisin” song!  Woot!

After all the recommendations stop flooding in, I’ll compile the list and create a new article over on Squidoo and post the link to the article so that everyone can see all the songs that people use to dance this awesome dance!

Until then, enjoy this video of some folks dancing “Cruisin”

See ya on the dance floor!

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:

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…
