I get the emails saying so-and-so liked your post and go to check the stats to see absolutely no one has even viewed that post. What the heck is that? It drives me mad. Those people who like your post, but don’t read are trolls. That’s what I think they’re the people who want to promote their blogs without actually reading anyone else to comment on like topics. I hate it. i feel like that’s twice as disrespectful. And to think I used to follow them and look around for a while. Sheesh. I mean the least of the reason I do this is for the likes. I want people to read my stuff and comment on it, maybe start a discussion or an argument. Come on people, don’t waste my time liking my stuff if you’ve never read it.
How about you fellow bloggers, why do you do this? Why do you open what you write to a public forum? Is it so you can be heard? So you can build a fan base? So you can get it out? Or maybe you do it for the stats and likes? No reason is ridiculous, just different.
