Paul Godines Short Story

EzineArticles Expert Author Paul Godines submitted his first 10 articles and wrote us a short-story as to why we should upgrade his account from Basic to Platinum:

Here is why I think I deserve Platinum status:

“One day, a father took his son to the internet with the firm purpose of showing his son how many things he could do. They spent the day on the net surfing, they Googled their name and they emailed their friends and even watched a movie online.

At the end of the day the father asked the son “How was the tour of the internet?”

“It was great” the son replied

“Did you see all that you could do on the net?”

“Oh yea” said the son.

“So tell me, what did you learn?”

The son answered “I saw lots of videos, and webpages and Google and even heard some music.” “But what I learned most was that I found a place I could read about anything I want to learn and write about anything I want.”

His fathers said “Why did you pick writing and not the videos and other stuff?

His son replied “Because its natural to me, I couldn’t stop reading and writing If I tried, it’s my passion.”

Hope this helps, let me know if I can help.”

Yes, it earned him Platinum status… He would have earned it anyway as the quality of his articles met or exceeded expectations. His short story was entertaining and brightened our member support crew’s day. Thanks Paul!

While i appreciate all you wrote. A tender loving story.
Would it not have been better to go play softball or football – some physical exercise – social interaction and tem building than showing him how to isolate and inward focus?
I’m not politically correct, but lets face it – this wasn’t the greatest or the correct lesson.
