wordpress review

I am sure everyone here in wordpress must have got the annual report compiled specifically for their blog.

it is a very interesting read and i have been compared to a san francisco cable car. haha. it just goes to show how small is my readership.

it is a kind way of putting it, saying the car takes 60 people so it would take 38 journeys to take all those people who viewed my blog. and they highlight the most popular posts but dont call it highlights of their year. That way it won’t bring up someone’s post of the death of their daughter like facebook did.

I have often felt rather ambiguous about the ‘like’ button. it seems weird to press the like button when someone is posting about a disaster or death , either a personal one or the world’s. 

i see others being compared to the sydney opera house, and one to the louvre. i wonder are there any higher comparisons and to what? i would like to know. 

but i guess the very small and the very big wont be putting up their report for show.

i am sure plenty of us dont mind about the numbers reading our blogs. after all we write it for ourselves. it is a great way for us to write anything we like without feeling that every post must be a masterpiece of great writing. and it is a great feeling when someone else comments and contributes to the post either to add to it or just to chat.

    Yes the ‘like’ button is a strange concept; often people blanket ‘liking’ everything so that people will then like them back and they can boast of having 200 likes or 10,000 followers. I hate all that.

      now there is even a like for the comments. at first it looks cheesy, but actually it is quite a good idea. instead of repeating what they say, one can like it as if to say my sentiments exactly.
      there may be people liking everything just to get traffic, but maybe not as many as we think. however, i do give people the benefit of the doubt because if they dont do it, no one will find them. it is a form of advertising but sometimes i have found blogs i like to follow from that, which i wont know about. so it can be a good thing. i find the like button for me gives me a nice feeling and is a form of encouragement to the writer. and when i find a post i like, it is nice to be able to tell that person i like it.
