Viewed or Liked A Post

I believe in building and supporting a person in their journey. We all have our own ways. If you cannot say something positive then you should keep your thoughts to yourself.

Liking a post/comment is just putting a tick in the box you should at least write something positive this shows you understand what has been written.

I try to read and write a comment on other posts it is important to me. Sometimes I “Like” a post with the intention of going back to write a positive comment.

My own life has been such of late and feeling tired. Undergoing much pain in my self-healing. I often read the posts on here to relax and keep in touch with other bloggers. I just feel I cannot do justice to the writer as I have to contemplate their words and return in a better frame of mind. The writer, you deserve better from me.

I know those who just put a tick in the box as they have scrolled down the list of posts they follow. They have not read the post impossible at the time of my posting their reaction is to quick barely viewed it just liked it.

I am grateful to those who do take the time to read my posts and if you are unsure about what I have written please ask me to explain more simply.

I look forward with interest to receive your comments.

    Commenting is something I always advocate for. It connects the reader with the writer. The process is complete. Full circle. The writer needs some sort of feedback, too.

    I like receiving comments, so it’s only normal that I leave them for others.

    I have given this a lot of thought too. I used to get annoyed at the 30-likes-in-a-moment for a string of posts on my blog, now I merely find them funny. I agree I appreciate the time taken to read and comment, acknowledge and extend the same most often. With some regulars if I don’t particularly have words every single time then my like is also a genuine acknowledgment and I would think the same vice versa.

    Very well said. Sometimes I like a post and then save it to comment later and then I get distracted and forget to go back! I try my best to support other bloggers as much as possible because I know there’s a lot of hard work that goes into a blog post. I hope you have a wonderful day! And thank you for your support!

    I’ve pondered this very topic on more than one occasion. I understand myself to be a writer first, blogger second, I also have a career and am a parent. I believe in the exchange of feedback because it is helpful, but honestly, sometimes it’s all I can to get a “like” out to my regulars. I can’t spare a thought to them all as much as I should like and I know the reverse to also be true. I’d still choose quality of content over quantity of views and likes but having been around here long enough, as someone who often posts on the run, it’s still not about the numbers or even lack of engagement. Sometimes it’s about what one can manage. I was on Twitter long enough (for self-promo reasons) to understand that the most successful social media requires constant care and attention. I don’t have that time. Wish I did. Blogging, reading posts and responding to them has as much time as I am able to allot it which isn’t much. To be honest, I prefer the quick comment, I’m equally grateful to not have long-winded exchanges either (like this one) as that would obligate me to respond in kind. Again, I don’t have that kind of time. I’m grateful for the likes, even the scrolled ones. I’m in that position too. Your post caught my attention because I understand the conflict.
