Taking a Step Back

sit down, i want to talk to you about something. something serious. i made a realization today. in the recent days and with events that are pending within the Sphere i thought i’d share something with you.

i first discovered the community back in march of 2011. one link lead to another and eventually i was persuaded into starting a blog. in the beginning i really didn’t know what i was going to add. the way i viewed it, there were TONS of sites, all putting out good messages. so what the fuck was i going to contribute? i told myself i’d give it a shot. read the first few months i started up….it’s a train wreck.

i fully admit, i got to where i am largely by being a coat tail riding sunovabitch. i got linked to a few larger bloggers and plugs from them. i told myself i was GOING to approach for the sake of posting how the interaction went. what worked what didn’t and i realized, although i was pretty good with woman before blogging, after 7-8 months of blogging….i became SURGICAL.

one thing bothered me about the community though. i didn’t like how the bloggers kept the audience at arms length. it was almost an HONOR for the host to address a comment/er. that to me was a bit sanctimonious. so it seemed like the dynamic was- post, comments, fawning over bloggers “great post” while host sat back on high as his audience groveled at his feet.

fuck that. i DO NOT want to be that site.

don’t get me wrong, there are very few sites i don’t like. everyone has their own voice and style. but so many of them read like a great magazine article educating you on psycho-social issues. “gee, so that’s how hypergamy affects the SMP.” ok, how is THAT going to increase my success in the SMP? the easy answer is, it’ll do VERY little.

what i want is to be a site that you can read and IMMEDIATELY apply it to your daily interactions with women and find success. how do i define success: the ability to effortlessly chat up any women regardless of attractive traits with relative ease. to be able to charm her, to stand out from every other asshole she’ll bump into today. to be able to screen woman rather than having them screen you. to change your mind set from “how do i win her” to “she needs to EARN me”.

THAT’S success with women- not sex. do the above, and the sex will come. i promise. want proof, i’m sure the women reading will HEARTILY agree. i really don’t know too many other bloggers that game their female audience. i don’t know of too many other blogger that USE their blog to chat up women. shit, i did it 3 hours ago.

well, from here on out….i want you to do yourself a favor. read an article and ask yourself, “how can i apply this knowledge RIGHT NOW?” how can you use the article to gain more success in the SMP? since i’ve already burned a few bridges and now know who (within the community) and who doesn’t, i want to up the game. i didn’t start a blog to become “mr cool guy”. i did it to HELP guys. why do you think i could give 2 shits about the grammar, capitalization, and punctuation? you want that shit, there are HUNDREDS of well written blogs where you can feel like you’ve stepped back into academia and applaud the poster for his brilliant post. if you want to learn what to say to flirt with the cute 20 year old cashier. come see me. unfortunately, since i don’t get paid this, you have to sacrifice fluff for context. i think it’s a fair trade.

there’s NOTHING exceptional about me. i’m your average dude next door. i call shit the way i see it. sometimes it seems like the sites can be pretty clique-ish and i DO NOT want to give my readers that feeling. EVERYONES welcome. i do my best to address damn near every comment because i honestly appreciate the readers for taking the time to stop and comment. don’t kiss my ass, make a point, discuss, call me out if you disagree.

if you can’t apply what you’re reading to become more successful….why read it? what’s the point? you read a book to be entertained, or to learn. i prefer to do BOTH. i’ve been blogging long enough to know that 99% of the subject matter has been covered SEVERAL times. i don’t want this blog to be stuffy or too serious. life is serious enough, the SMP should be fun. and the way i see it, this blog exists FOR YOU. without you, there is no Dannyfrom504. so i feel i owe you just as much as you may feel you owe me for teaching you.

sadly i do not read as many sites as i should. first off, i don’t need to. who’s going to teach me how be successful with women. but i will promise the smaller/newer blogs that i WILL link them if they link me. if you have a blog and are linking me, shoot me an email so i can add you to the blogroll.

while i’m glad to have been accepted by the inner circle of the sphere, it’s YOU that matter the most. i’m here for the readers, not the other blogs. we clear? good.

OH LOOK….. Badger’s back.

stay the fuck up.

  1. guys who give shit about the grammer=irritating gamma males who want to pickpocket/belittle someone else’s success. the blog as a whole is still immensely readable, entertaining and useful. keep doing what you want to do, best way to blog en aw.

    • dannyfrom504 says:

      Thanks dude. I appreciate you reading.

      Sent from my iPhone

      • I love your writing and don’t mind the typos or lack of capitilization because I understand what you say still and that’s what counts.

        I care about grammar in my post insofar as it pleases me. I suppose I am selfish blogger in that regard.

        You are the Roissy of applicable game writing.

  2. Senior Beta says:

    Just keep the recipes coming. Then you will always have an audience.

  3. redpillwifey says:

    Much love, Danny! And OMG bacon jerky. I need to try this.

    “gee, so that’s how hypergamy affects the SMP.” ok, how is THAT going to increase my success in the SMP? the easy answer is, it’ll do VERY little.

    SPOT FUCKING ON BRO. Keep it practical.

    Your 3rd grade stick out the tongue move is a perfect example. Even a chump can’t screw that one up.

    Okay, as an also military near retiree, I must ask, why the HUGE BCG’s? I know there are plenty of more stylish glasses available. I get a pair each year. I have flirted with wearing the older styles, but just can’t pull the trigger on it. Is it a tactical move? “I don’t care how I look, bite me?”

  6. Drama says:

    What makes the blog enjoyable is that it’s really just like hearing a story from a friend, rather than your boss or grandfather. It’s understandable and relatable in the everyday way. It’s got all the knowledge and wisdom but in a first person perspective through your own stories, which you tell really well. The style is as good as the content.

  7. Vicomte says:

    And that, kids, is why while other writers are merely respected, Danny is admired.

    In a totally platonic way, of course.

    Unless you’re like, a girl.

    Or gay.

  8. earl says:

    Ever since I read about “I had the best shopping experience ever line.” I’ve been using that one on every cute chick I see working in the store. Never fails to start a conversation.

    Besides you shouldn’t take life too seriously…you’ll never get out alive.

  9. MissMarie says:

    You had me at bacon jerky, studmuffin…

  10. “i don’t know of too many other blogger that USE their blog to chat up women”

    Yeah, but I used someone else’s blog to chat up a woman.

  11. sunshinemary says:

    Danny, LOL, you are smiling in that photo, therefore I know you are happy.

    Bacon. Is there anything it can’t do?

  12. Random Angeleno says:

    bacon jerky? BaCoN jErKy?? BACON JERKY???

    Damn you Danny … my life will not be complete until I can get my hands on a bag!

  13. deti says:

    Pure awesomeness.

  14. Vicomte says:

    I was going to let this go, but the torrent of comments compels me.

    The bacon jerky tasted like shit didn’t it?

    Every single commercially-produced jerky in the world tastes fucking awful.

    Just because it’s made from pork and they added more salt instead of shitty smoke flavor and kept all of the nitrates doesn’t make it bacon.

    I demand the truth.

  15. tj says:

    Thank YOU, good sir, for reminding us this not only can be fun, but IS fun.

    Not much I can add to everything said – so I’ll just let my continued reading action speak for itself – as well as the FUN I’ve had interacting with women of all shapes sizes and forms since I’ve been reading you.

    Example – ” hey dork”ed and stuck my tongue out at a cute mom at my daughter’s track meet last night. Cute mom laughed and spent 20 minutes chatting me up

    Still waiting to drop a gigglebutt on a girl…

    • dannyfrom504 says:

      lol. see. told you. i know what the fuck i’m doing.

      • tj says:

        BTW – which post was the one about shopping trips? “best shopping experience ever” – thought i had bookmarked it, but apparently didn’t….I want to print out and staple to my forehead

        • dannyfrom504 says:

          when a cashier asks how your shopping experience was, or if you found everything you were looking for reply with (deapan)- “this has been, by far, the greatest shopping experience of my life.” when she laughs say, “at first the birth of my child was the highlight of my life, today has surpassed that.” if it’s a waitress replace shopping with dining.

      • tj says:

        Didn’t you do a whole post about that? And standing in line “been here since Tuesday”….?

        Just wanna bookmark that post so I can read, read again and let it sink into my brain and actions…..

        • dannyfrom504 says:

          fuuuuuuuuuck. i dunno dude. i post damn near everyday. i’ll have to look it up when i get home. but the “since tuesday.” would just be an exaggeration, which is all comedy is.

          “so Danny, how long have you been able to cook?” me- “since i was able to see over the stove.”

          her- “and when was that?”

          me- “about 5 years ago.” *rimshot* On Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 9:24 AM, dannyfrom504

    • earl says:

      Not just cashiers…I used the line “I’m having the best day ever”…when the gal that cut my hair asked me how my day was going.

      I tell you she took extra time cutting my hair making sure it looked great and that was probably the longest shampoo session I had since I’ve been going to that place.

  16. Sean says:

    That’s why we keep coming back, Danny, on a daily basis. You’re just a guy talking with the guys. Plus food porn.

    Even if you did spike the candle warmer response…

  17. andyw says:

    I like you….

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  18. TempestTcup says:

    Holy cow, don’t change a thing – this is one of my very favorite blogs ever & I have no desire to flirt with or pick up women. It’s not the content for me, but how you draw everyone into your world.

    And the tingles, of course 😀

  19. sunshinemary says:

    And the tingles, of course

    Danny’s Girls. We should get T-Shirts made.

  20. earl says:

    Sounds like Roissy might have picked up on this with his last post…”Vignettes Of Game”.

    But I’ll echo I like this blog because of the story telling and practical advice. I’d rather read something with grammatical errors that is good stuff…than some stiff theory with the proper placement of commas.

  21. sunshinemary says:

    We should get T-Shirts made.

    Here, how about this?

  22. Panacea says:

    I agree 100% you’re definitely one of the realer writers in the Manosphere. A lot of authors have the habit of just flat out complaining about America, American Females, Feminists, and so on. They’ll go and make these huge posts analyzing every little dynamic and tossing around all this jargon over complicating the issue and as you said having it read like a magazine. I mean it’s very nice and all, but frankly I don’t give a shit if you hate America, or American women, or the dynamics of hypergamy in some novel, and so on.

    It’s just paragraphs of bitching about a situation or insulting those involved rather then offering a practical solution to navigate around it or deal with it. Your blog was one of the first Manosphere blogs I started to frequent and always will be. Nobody else tells it like you do. Keep it real and keep the posts coming Danny!
