** please don’t click ‘like’ if you’re not bothered to open a post **
I was quite mystified when a few times after posting a blog I would see that a few people had ‘liked’ the post but my stats showed 0 views yet. Then I noticed on the reader page that you can ‘like’ a post without actually clicking on the link to the page. Obviously some people scroll through the readers clicking ‘like’ as fast as their mouse can carry them, they do this so that you will be suitably flattered and go have a look at their page and naturally ‘like’ them. Sorry but in my view this is dishonest and rather lame on the part of the liker. Rather go play in the real world and make some real friends.
I only ‘like’ a post if I actually like it, funny that! I read many posts on the reader and probably click ‘like’ on less than 50% of those. Recently I read one under ‘parenting’ a mother had gone to a sleep over and promised her child that she would be home at breakfast time, she pitched up after mid day to find a card from her child with a picture and the words “why were you home late?” and she had the gall to post this as a blog instead of finally spending some time with her child. If there were a ‘dislike’ button it could not have done my response justice.
Apparently you can now buy followers on Twitter, and you thought ‘rent a crowd’ was a poor indictment on a person, this has ‘LOSER’ written all over it in flashing neon. What happened to good old imaginary friends?!
Let’s make a deal (if you read this far) don’t blow smoke up my botty and I’ll return the favour
