Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22254 – 777:
Here’s the haps:
Some of my readers have been with me for the long haul and some have just started following me. Some are very modern and up-to-the-minute on all things internet and others, well, maybe not-so-much. As I mentioned in a different post there are folks who go back and read things I’ve written in the past and commented on them or liked them. Some of them were quite good, actually, but not all of them. They click the “like” button sometimes just to show that they read the post. I think that’s really cool. Thank you all for taking an interest in my stuff.
But, what I want to know is, is it okay to like your own post? I mean sometimes I will write a piece that I am really proud of and I really do like. If I read that post on someone else’s blog I would really hit that “like” button but it seems, I don’t know, in some ways sort of “full of myself” and I should let others do that, but yet, it really was pretty good. Not all platforms offer a self-hosting option and don’t have a “like” button. I don’t use Fakebook or Twit or any of those, just my own website where I have full control of the contents. I have had people disagree with me on occasion but since most of my followers and especially my commenters are high class, intelligent people I have never had to edit or delete someone’s comment. But this question just kind of popped up in my mind and I just thought I’d ask somebody who knows something. Or doesn’t. I don’t know.
Okay. I finally have got that off my chest. I have to say, however, that if that is the biggest problem I have in my life or the toughest decision I will ever have to face, I think I’ve got it pretty easy.
Remember, the good book asks the question, “Why don’t you ever see the headline ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’?”
