My question to you this week is, exactly how important are likes to you on your blog, and how do you determine if you are going to click like on other bloggers’ posts?
I have read so many posts and comments about the “Like” button. Frankly, and honestly, it doesn’t make much of a difference to me when I get a lot of likes on my posts or a few. I know that out of the so-called 4500+ followers of my blog, a mere 2-3% of people actually read and interact with me on my blog.
A like is the first indication that someone was here. They might or might not have read the post. The really important indicator is a comment. Though not everyone who had read a post will comment. Most feel that they don’t have anything to add to previous comments. Some are too busy and others may not find themselves in full agreement with the post but are being polite.
When do I click the like button?
I like and read all the posts from my favorite bloggers, who I consider my friends. Sometimes I don’t click the like button because the post is not what I agree with. Or am comfortable with it. And sometimes I do click the like button because I am short of time and want to show the blogger that I was here.
