Today’s discussion is going to be about likes vs. comments on blog posts. You may be thinking that this is a random post, but it really isn’t. This post is also my announcement post for the February Comment Challenge hosted by Alicia at Kernels of Nonsense and Lonna at FLYLēF. This challenge is all about encouraging people to comment on each other’s posts rather than just liking the post. Lonna and Alicia hosted this in the summer and I participated in all three months, and I plan to do the same for the winter!
I don’t really have a problem with people just liking my posts, but how do I know if someone actually read my post. I know sometimes time can be an issue, but I always make an effort to comment on a post if I know that I can write something meaningful, it lets the reader know that I took the time to read their post. I always love getting comments, because it lets me know that someone actually took the time to read what I wrote.
What are your thoughts on likes vs. comments? And please sign up for the comment challenge, it’s one of my favorites, you get to connect with and meet more bloggers!
