Why I Am Madly In Love With VicDillinger

By Edited Jul 14, 2015 7 22

Sometimes a new writer comes to InfoBarrel and throws out all the established regulations. Why use Search Engine Optimization techniques to write Pulitzer Prize winning articles like "Buy Cheap Fleece Cheaply Today For Less Money", when you can instead write interesting articles that are actually fun to read. Welcome Vicdillinger,former Private Investigator.

When VicDillinger first popped up on InfoBarrel I thought he sounded like an interesting character, but I assumed he was spending to much time on the forums and not enough time writing articles. Once I clicked over and seen that he was publishing on a regular basis I thought to myself "Sweet!", however I immediately became leery when I read article titles such as:
Why I Am I Am Madly in Love With Tonya Harding
Why I Am Madly In Love With Sarah Palin

"WTF kind of articles are these" I thought, but once I read them I immediately liked his writing style. Vicdillinger's writing style, humoristic approach, and work ethic are why I am madly in Love With Vicdillinger. I am straight, but I can have a mancrush right? I have no interest in Vicdillinger the way I do about Mia Love and other pretty women, however I seriously admire this dude.

I assume he is a dude, however he is a former Private Investigator so maybe is really a hot woman who is undercover as a male writer. That would be cool because then I would try out all the best lines from the book "Pick Up Lines For Dummies" on my Kindle.

I would be hesitant to invite Vicdillinger over because he is a former private investigator (seriously), and that would put a hanker on any of the 420 activities that may be going on periodically, however I would love to have a handful of people like Vicdillinger in my town to hangout with. Can you imagine 5 guys just like Vicdillinger who write consistently and also write very amusing articles that are fun to read! That would be a great inspiration and encourage me to quit slacking on my InfoBarrel duties and to step my game up to a new level.

Every writer on here can learn something from Vicdillinger, former Private Investigator. (Seriously!)

Here are some reasons Vicdillinger is a great role model for InfoBarrel Writers:

He Writes A Lot Of Articles
At the time I am writing this Vicdillinger has 135 articles published, and they are all pretty cool. No 325 words generic rambling on his InfoBarrel portfolio.

He Writes Unique Articles
Vicdillinger writes articles using his own style. Vicdillinger does not care about the status quo, he does his own thing and does it pretty dang good.

He Does Not Write Boring and Bland Generic Content
Vicdillinger has a great writing style, even on his comments. Instead of writing "Nice Article" on his comments he will instead inject his humor style into the comments which make it very fun to read.

I am declaring publicly that I am madly in Love with Vic Dillinger...or at least I am madly in love with his writing style and work ethic.

I too love reading Vic's articles. Interesting editorials and well researched stuff! I really like those 'mini-biographies'.

Vic is an inspiration to me, and I'm sure to many, to produce top-notch content. I think he has a novel writer's soul.

This article is so sweet. I so gel with Vic, his articles are like mini books that transport you to somewhere that is so different and interesting. He reminds me why I have a genuine love of reading.

This is REALLY embarassing.

Yes, I am a man. Yes, I really am a former P.I.. Yes, I have burned through 2 wives (wore 'em out, I guess -- as you can well imagine, living with me would be no day at the beach).

Yes, I truly am madly in love with the women I write about amd slaver over (all of 'em, or I wouldn't waste time on them).

No, SEO does'nt give me wood -- wrting the stuff I do, though, does, and I'm enjoying myself.

Thanks, Ernie, this is pretty cool, but a bit awkward (I'm not big on bromance, but I'll let it slide just this once...)

@ vicdillinger - "No, SEO does'nt give me wood" - ROFLMAO...
Jan 15, 2012 11:16pm
Don't hurt yourself. But, no, SEO doesn't do it for me.

Awesome. I've been away for a few days(hugging trees in a National Park), and while I was there, a few article topics came to mind. Believe it or not, one of them was this exact title.

I think Vic Dillinger's articles are super-awesome-amazing-funny and informative. His style is definitely his own and I eagerly click on the links to his new articles as they appear in my subscription feed.

Nice work Mr. Dillinger, please keep writing. I hope all your articles get the money they deserve.

Nice work Ernie, great article. You beat me to the punch.

I don't care about money, I'm in it for the glory and the babes! (Although I do hope Ernie can make a buck with this since he's the one who put the effort into writing it!)
Jan 17, 2012 11:41pm
What article topics work best for getting the babes? Should I write about my Lamborghini and my Condo in Hawaii?
Jan 17, 2012 11:45pm
I guess both of those will work --money is always good with the ladies!
Jan 18, 2012 12:10am
I've already got all the babes and glory I could ever need(I presumed you would have had too).

But babes cost money, so I'm in it for the dough!

You guys should start a fanclub ;)
Jan 18, 2012 8:38am
Lol...My mom would probably be my only fan.
Jan 18, 2012 8:57am
Ernie, great article! I am also a fan of Vic's! I wish he would teach history to high schoolers-he makes it fun and interesting.
Jan 19, 2012 2:49am
This is hilarious and definitely shows the beginning of a life long bromance as vicdillinger puts it! Ahhh isn't that sweet! Vic writes with passion and satire combined which is both clever and funny. I for one enjoy reading his stuff! Good on you Ernie for writing this one!

Factual and fun article, Ernie. You put into words how many of us feel about Vic and his writings. Just this morning, he posted this comment in the forum, and I said WOW, after I read it.

”I just write. People either have enough brain cells firing on enough cylinders or they don't.

I love to see people stretch their vocabularies, though, beyond the dreaded 6th to 9th grade reading levels that most journalism and most Web writing recommends. "Big" words used simply for the sake of their "bigness", however, can be a terrific waste.

Languages, all of them, are beautiful, wonderful, organic entities, a means of creative, human expression that can be indifferent or earth-shattering. Mark Twain once commented that, in writing, the difference between choosing the almost right word and the right word was the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

Go for the lightning.”

To both of you guys, I say Good Job!

Wonderful article Ernie! Vic is clever, talented, and he's also unpretentious - a killer combo! He has such a way with words and he is considerate enough to provide helpful and interesting comments on several articles. We are all the beneficiaries of his wit and charm!

Hey Vic, are you ready to run for president yet? :o)
Feb 13, 2012 12:26am
OK, this is really getting a little embarassing now -- settle down and get back to work, boys and girls! (And I DO hope Ernie makes some bucks on this).
Feb 13, 2012 1:06am
bahahaha! until moments ago i didn't know this article existed! well said, ernie, on behalf of all IB writers. except i'm not really into mia love . . . or sarah palin.
Feb 14, 2012 11:48am
