Sunday poser: Likes, or comments?

This week for her Sunday poser question Sadje asks us:

On your blog post what you value more; likes or comments?

Likes are all well and good, and its nice to get them. But just because someone hits like, doesn’t actually mean they’ve read your post. I mean, yeah, you’d like to think they’re hitting the like button after they’ve read your post. Well for me, that is what I do, I read then hit like and if I have something to say I will leave a comment.

I love getting comments on my blog. I find the engagement a great way to dialogue, meet new friends, get into conversations that you otherwise may not have.

When someone leaves a comment, you know they are really interested in what you’ve written.

If they’ve taken time to comment, I always comment back, to me, it would be so rude if people were leaving you comments and you didn’t respond to them.

So yes, I love likes, but I think I prefer comments over likes, although I appreciate both.

  1. For me, the meaning of a like depends on who it’s from. If it’s from someone who also leaves comments once in a while, I’m pretty confident that they’re actually reading the posts they’re liking, so those likes are meaningful.

  2. Makes two of us. I love hearing the thoughts from those who have shared a space with me. Even a word gos a long way. It reaches the part that created the post and that feels some type of way. A more connective type of way.
