Sometimes we like a post without viewing, sometimes we comment on a post by reading other people’s comment, making the writer feel so joyous or so we can get more likes on our own posts.
When you check your stat, you can see how many views a post has gotten and how many likes it has. Some are unaware that they have more likes than views. One of my blogger friend once told me of a post that she published that had few views and the likes tripled in number. If she had not checked, she would have had the misconception that her post has been read by many.
Some people follow other blogs so they can have more followers. I have seen a lot of blogs like that. Having more followers or likes does not matter. That is not a legit purpose for blogging although we all have different importance attached to blogging one of which having more followers is some people’s priority. We all found our passions before we started blogging so that passion is able to yield result by itself. Every blatant error made should be soon corrected. Stop making people live with the misconceptions in blogging, find your purpose. Sometimes, we can escape pains of separation when we don’t have people’s viewing our posts. That’s a struggle in blogging which shouldn’t be solved by creating misconceptions. If WordPress were showing the number of sites we follow just as the number of sites of those following us, we will realize that some are following up to a thousand blogs which will make it impossible for you to keep up with your READERS so we will randomly like posts without viewing the content. Let’s stop that. On bloglovin‘ , you can see the number of blogs each person is following and sometimes when i try to visit some sites, i realize they haven’t even published anything, some people just follow them for follows just as some do on instagram and other social media platforms. Someone once asked me why i was following just two blogs on bloglovin’ then I replied by asking her why she was following over five hundred blogs. She didn’t have anything to say and that was how she ended the topic. In conclusion, how we deal with our site is important and how we deal with other sites is more important. Let’s not create misconceptions in blogging.
