I’m annoyed with some bloggers. Do you really want me to read you blog? Then don’t be this person
Who likes those bloggers whose primary goal is just to increase traffic to their site? Anyone? These are the worst offenders. Nothing I hate more than those that are insincere. Do NOT like my post, just to get me to your site.
Yes, I suspect there’s a few of you that have been liking my posts recently, that I’m pretty sure didn’t read it.
How do I know this?
I know they haven’t even opened it up…because as soon as I hit the post button, I go back to reread for any errors and 2 people have already LIKED IT – and it’s the same two people – there’s no way, they even had a chance to read it because I just clicked post and was just rereading myself and hadn’t even made it through the first sentence!
I really thought WordPress enabling people to like a post without opening it, rather lame. How can they like something by the first sentence/header picture? So you know, these bloggers are scrolling down and just clicking LIKE, LIKE, LIKE all the way down their reader list. They never comment on your content and probably never look at it!
I seriously, want to block those people. Is there an option for that and I’m not aware? You know, like how Facebook has – you can block a person or just their posts. If it doesn’t exist, then WordPress needs to add that option to their next upgrade As much as it’s fun to see, wow, I have 20 likes – not when someone didn’t sincerely read. #Idontlikeyou STOP IT.
I’m not here to drive up your numbers (visits to your site) so that you can show companies how valuable you are to market their product/advertising or purchase your services. I don’t care what you’re selling, I don’t want it.
And if you aren’t understanding what I mean by this, when someone likes a post – typically you’re going click on them and visit their site in return. Right? Sometimes, when I visit other sites, I check out who liked their posts, and visit those people’s site, as well, as I’m always looking for new material and new buddies. And I try to make a thoughtful or clever comment whenever I can or it strikes me to do so.
My purpose is to have fun and meet people across the globe. So, of course, if Joe-Joe clicks “like” on my post…I’m going to say “Oh, who’s Joe-Joe” and then when it’s a marketing thing, I get so ticked off. I don’t need you to tell me how to be a successful blogger.
If you are sincere, wonderful! and Love you, Love you! However, those that just want me to visit and comment on their site only because they are too lazy to ever comment themselves or too busy hitting like everywhere they can…I want to block you and others from seeing you advertise your blog brand for free on my site.
Because, that’s what you are doing. You’re posting your little WordPress Icon on several sites as advertising yourself. I don’t like you. Stop it. I don’t want you following my blog if it’s just for your marketing purpose.
Just to prove a point – I’m going to spend the next 15 minutes, just hitting like everywhere.
