I discovered this gem of a blog post on the freshly pressed page on WordPress. I completely agree with this blogger and wanted to chime in to that effect on my own page.
I too have noticed a surge in “likes” on my page, and don’t know if it’s because my content is interesting or because, a lot of people are trying to get their blog’s name out there. If you like a post because you’ve actually read it and thought it was interesting or resonated with you in some way… thanks!
if you’ve liked it just so that someone can click on your blog page, well thanks to you too, for nothing that is!
I never had hopes of grandeur for this blog. It’s a space for me to express myself and make sense of this roller coaster called life, my life in particular. through it, I’ve come in contact with some pretty cool, interesting people… but that was never the primary goal.
If yours is to get to hundreds of thousands of hits per day, or make money off it or I don’t know what, God bless and God help. But please, don’t click the “like” button just for the sake of clicking it.
