Ever run across an article you like, but don’t actually feel like commenting? Yeah, me too.
For the fellow bloggers out there, you know comments drive you to keep writing. I also know that there are some times where you want to let someone know you like what they wrote, but don’t have anything other than “this is good” to leave, so you skip the process.
Those of you that don’t blog, that’s cool — I didn’t for a long time. Just understand that your feedback is totally awesome. Bloggers love it, and get very excited when you give them feedback. So if you run across an entry you like, say something, or in the case of my blog, click the link at the bottom of the article that says “I like this.”
Why should you give me feedback? Well ultimately it’s going to tell me what articles I should do more of. I write for a multitude of reasons. I write mostly because I want to, but I want to make sure my readers are getting something worth while out of my senseless drivel. Ultimately, I’m trying to make this better for all of us.
So the next time you see an entry you like, or something that’s made you go “hmmmm,” say something, or just mark that you like it.
Big thanks to Lady Jess who found the “I like this” plugin.
Awesome, folks. I’m glad we had this chat.
