Are you having a seizure of some sort?
I’m writing this post on my phone. I have the WordPress app on my phone so I have always got something interesting to read. That’s useful but what you may not realise is it also shows just how fast notifications come in. I was just texting with a friend and getting interruption after interruption. Exasperated, I went into the app, pretty sure what was happening and sure enough, 13 likes in less than a minute on different posts, all from you! You actually created a total of EIGHTY TWO LIKES in less than four minutes. I have screen shots of my notifications to prove it.
There’s no way you have read them all. I don’t believe you’ve actually read a single post of mine which is upsetting. You’ve just gone through my blog like diarrhea, splattering your mark everywhere. Not one comment either. I ‘like’ posts when I’ve read them. If I like more than two in a row I’ll comment somewhere so people get some input. That’s why we’re all here after all – we want to read, to be read and interact.
Is it supposed to be flattering? It isn’t.
It’s actually a little insulting. Either my posts aren’t good enough for you to read or you think I’m too stupid to realise that’s what you’ve done.
Do you think if you like 13 posts I’m going to follow you? If I’d actually read 13 posts of yours I’d have followed you after the first couple. You’ve splattered 13 posts of mine but haven’t followed me – why?
If you think that’s how to get followers, guess again! You gone done pissed me off now sausage, I wouldn’t follow you on principle because I bet you’re the type who plays the follow/unfollow game too.
Here’s a little advice.
Be sincere. If you click like, do it because you enjoyed the post. Do not click like repeatedly when it’s impossible for you to have read posts. Bloggers aren’t stupid. We don’t like insincerity.
Engage with other bloggers. Comment. I do look at who likes my posts, I look at the blogs of a large percentage of my ‘likes’ and all of my follows. If I’m interested I follow them. I follow a lot more blogs than follow me. I read and comment as much as I can. I HAVE FUN!!
No matter why you blog, as a release, for fun, in the hopes of making money – you need to build trust and faith. It doesn’t happen without work and effort and it doesn’t happen overnight.
So far you have done nothing to gain credibility with me. In fact, you’ve achieved the complete opposite. I hope you learn from this.
