Why do you click “Like” on a Blogger’s post?

Hello Fellow Bloginistas!

I have a question for you: When you read a blogger’s poem / post / story, does it have to be perfect in your opinion for you to click the “Like” button?

Plato said: “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. I thought this quote appropriate to the main hypothesis of this post since not every one person likes all the things they see or read. To me, and many others, art is subjective. In that I truly believe Blogging is art (or, at the very least, a modern, effective way to convey one’s artistic work), our views of blog posts must be subjective as well.

For me, a post does NOT have to be perfect (again, IMHO), as long as I enjoy how it makes me feel or think when I am through reading it. So I ignore perceived imperfections, and click “Like”, regardless. I think it also goes a long way in making a blogger want to keep going (positive reinforcement, if you will) and ends up for even better posts in the future.

How about YOU? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading,
Jamy 😀

p.s. And don’t click “Like” unless you really want to, although I would ”Love” it if you did! LOL 😉

  1. I don’t “like” something that I don’t like. I don’t hold everything up to the same standards, I may like something very juvenile and silly and dislike a work of famous art. If I am really impressed and feeling like it, I will be compelled to comment. That’s how it works for me!

  2. I am clicking “like” on all kinds of wonderful things on WordPress. I look at artwork, poetry, fiction, essays, photos, and all sorts of other stuff for which I have no qualifications for judging. I do write and draw myself, and occasionally write poetry, but my opinion is no more valuable than Joe the garbage truck driver or Cinderelli the ballet dancer. I rarely click something I don’t really like, but I do have some standards… I don’t like everything in the reader, or everything I find in the pages of those bloggers who have visited me.
