Do you want to hear something cool? Two-thirds of the visitors to my blog today liked my posts. Well, these visitors clicked on the “Like” button, anyway. Perhaps some of them did so without even reading my posts.
But what’s with the one-third who visited my blog today, presumably read one or both of my posts and didn’t click “Like”?
Did they accidentally stumble upon my blog and leave without reading it? Did my post pop up in their Reader and they opened it, read the first sentence or two, and then moved on?
Or did they read a post and deliberately decide that it it was not like-worthy? If that’s the case, that sucks.
Okay, perhaps I’m being a bit melodramatic and whiny. After all, as John Lydgate said, “You can’t please all of the people all of the time.” And as Sly Stone pointed out, “Different stokes for different folks.”
Besides, I don’t blog simply to generate a bunch of likes. I blog to express myself and to creatively exercise my mind.
So from this day forward I’m going to focus solely on writing entertaining, informative, engaging, and witty posts. And if not everyone likes my posts, well, so what? It’s no big deal, right?
Bullshit! I want everyone to like every post. Tell me you don’t too!
