Being a fellow blogger, for well over one year now, I have become immersed in the Blogosphere and am trying to understand how it’s relatable parts work. Right now the “Likes” Department has me somewhat flabbergasted. And the “Comments” Department has become, in my opinion, an elusive necessity that pretty much gages how readers react to your posts. At this point, has one scratching their head in befuddlement; wondering if the posts I’ve written so far are having a positive influence, a negative influence or any influence at all.
Which brings me to the question: Are “Likes” some form of courtship? The reason I ask this question is because one of the many instructions on how to grow in blogging was to not only “Like” people’s posts, but to genuinely make “Comments” in the hopes of either gaining readers, engaging them in the thought process of the post. Or at the very least maintaining an ongoing dialogue with fellow bloggers to promote a more engrossing creative process. Which to me is comparable to The Dating Game. Being real upfront hoping you choose the right one for a lasting relationship as time progresses on.
Or perhaps “Likes” are more akin to an arm wrestling match–to see which losing opponent will concede to follow the other. The losing opponent being the one who is so overwrought with “Likes” and deprived of comments, they concede to follow their “Likes” authors in the hope of gaining “Comments”.
Is this what the crux of blogging boils down to? I sincerely need your take on this. What do you think “Likes” mean? We would really appreciate your time and consideration on this matter. Thanks in advance.
