★ 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?)😀
