So, I’m not entirely sure what “Standard Practice” is, but I have a request. While I love that I get people liking my posts, I would love it even more if they were being read! When I get a “like” within a few seconds of the post going live, or when a post goes up where you need to click a link to finish reading it and it’s clear that the link hasn’t been clicked (like, a recent post which the link was broken for the first 3 hours the post was up, until someone called that to my attention), I’m pretty sure that the post hasn’t been read.
I like to pretend that I’m all kinds of awesome (or, rather, I try to pretend that I am), but I’m pretty sure I’m not awesome enough that everything I write is golden. Hopefully no one else is making such assumptions either! I would much rather have someone take the time to read what I have written and make some comments than to blindly click the star and move on. Quality over quantity. 🙂
