THE SHORT (n sweet) ‘survey’ on

For your information, passing interest or
yawn factor (?)

There are at present 67 followers of this blog

As we speak – the grammar used by those few who did respond with comments I have made into an amalgam of the following words:


…the ‘acknowledgement of making an effort’ . ‘…acknowlegement of ’Positive intention’…

…i just like what you write…
…When your writings made me think, made me smile, made me sad, made me smirk…

I try to read the blog posts my followers post,…
…merit in the post or find it interesting or entertaining or helpful, I hit the like button….the like button is a way of honouring their presence in my world

…I hit the LIKE button to let the blogger know that I read and liked it……. to be honest, sometimes even if the post is a meh, (Ed. not sure what ‘meh’ means?) I still hit the LIKE button for her/his effort…

The response to the questions from some was a – no comment left – hitting of the Like button! (5 folks) 😀

None tackled any of the questions directly e.g. the automatic set up idea of liking without reading – no one could inform me of the possibility of such a phenomena or not.

At least I’m a little more educated about the fact that there are bloggers out there who will hit the like button – because they like, want to encourage, give thanks for our efforts in blogging, and perhaps are not all that particular about exactitude when it comes – as to the ‘Why they do actually hit the like button’.

Who knows the other 59 followers might respond some day?



(or too much encouragement to bloggers?)

Just go ahead and write all day, write all day, go on, write away.
Away you go – that’s it – away you go – write all day
Write away – right away.
Are you writing?
There you are now – go on – write away
Write in the old way – on paper I mean
Type if you must – but either way – write away
That’s it – how many reams done now?
Still writing? Good – off you go again.
That’s it – write, write, write.
Good job. Yes – let me read that –
You have done it again, sheer genius –
But that’s not all. …Relevant…too…
Yes, well done. Keep this up.
You’re getting the hang of it.
This writing business I mean.






★ Like ?

Like ?

This is my first time at asking for some feedback from the Blogging Community.

Perhaps you can help me.

The LIKE button – what exactly is that for?

Is the question as obviously answered as it would appear?

…So we hit the ‘like’ button if we ‘like’ the content of a piece that has been posted – right?

Do we hit the ‘like’ button every time – e.g. because we know the blogger (perhaps through some other context) and don’t want to seem to stop lending support? Even though a particular blog (they’ve written) doesn’t really speak to us that much?

Does anybody have their ‘like’ button set up so that it automatically sends a ‘Like’ message to any blogs they are following, when they get news of a new post?
Even though they haven’t read the post they are responding to – yet? (Is such a thing possible – I don’t know?). That would be ‘liking’ without reading.

Do we just hit the ‘Like’ button randomly because we simply want to encourage the person in their blog, regardless of whether we do – actually ‘Like’ the content or not?

Is it right to hit the ‘like’ button even when we perceive 50% as good and don’t agree with the other 50% of what they have posted?

Is it still all right to hit the ‘like’ button e.g. because we like the accompanying illustration posted – but not the content of the text?

Can we ‘like’ something because it is well written without having to actually ‘like’ what is written? That would be liking ‘expression’ rather than ‘content’.

Is it not true that if we were so inclined we could randomly hit ‘like’ buttons here there and everywhere with little or no studious appraisal of the actual post? Indeed if we choose – without having even read the post?

Would you appreciate such button hitting on your blog?

Are there reasons to hit the ‘like’ button that I’m missing?
Perhaps I’m missing the obvious?

Perhaps ‘Like buttoning’ doesn’t mean like at all?
Perhaps it simply means ‘Heh I called today to have a look…’?

Then again perhaps each person reads a ‘Like’ differently than others and each person understands it to mean entirely different things when they receive one?

Is there a piece of WordPress instruction I have missed in all of this, and it is ‘much ado about nothing’ on my part?

Personally speaking if you get ‘a like’ from me it will be genuine.

At times it isn’t (I must admit) a unanimous ‘Like’, as I may not warm to every single syllable you have written.😎 But pretty much it is because I like your piece, that the button is pressed and up comes my motif to let you know.

Is it true that if you follow someone or they follow you – they never fail to get notification of your latest post? – Oops! Im changing the subject.

Anyway there you go – feel free to let me know what you think.
Until next time – hope you ‘like’ your day, or (…you thought it was pretty awesome…) (sound familiar?)😀
