Well, I guarantee that you will get more “Likes” from me, at least.
And that is the collective “you,” btw.
Look, I love, love, love to read.
And I especially love to read Indie Authors, Indie Poets, Indie…
Well, let’s just say you had me at “Indie.”
Which is why I believe WordPress is the best invention since the remote control.
WordPress is an organic eruption of creativity and expression.
WordPress is Indie Heaven.
If I could marry WordPress, I would…among other things.
In fact, there is so much Indie creativity and expression erupting from WordPress that it is impossible to gather it all in.
That is why the WordPress Reader is so critical to me and my endeavor to read and appreciate as many Indie Writers and Creators as I possible can.
I pretty much live in that Reader.
In fact, you could just about call me a WordPress Reader agoraphobic.
I really get a bit antsy when someone, or something, tries to prompt me away from it.
So, if you are one of those creators who think you are going to get more page views by only showing a summary of your post in the Reader so we’ll click out of it to your website, well, I’m here to tell you, chances are you probably won’t.
At least not by me.
Hear me when I say that I really want to both like and “Like” what you have created. And while I may not always like your message and/or content, I will just about always like and “Like” the effort.
As you well know, as is evidenced by your own sweat equity, Writing and Drawing and Poeting ain’t always easy.
It takes effort, and I like effort…especially when it’s coming from others.
But I am not going to like or “Like” something unless I read it, all of it, with my own eyes.
Now I’m sure some so-called pro bloggers will “Like” just about anything, whether they like it or not, and whether they read it or not.
But that’s not me.
I’m here for the content and the relationship building that quality content generates.
But if you’re trying to drag me away from my Reader then…let me tell ya, you better have a really, really good hook of a title and some powerful content in that Reader summary.
It happens sometimes.
And I really look forward to those times when it does.
But, in all honesty, it doesn’t happen nearly enough.
So, help me help you help me by going to your Dashboard, then click on your Settings, then click on Reader, and then where it says For each article in a feed, show, please, please, please click on the Full text radio button.
If you do, the Writing Gods will smile on you.
And so will I.
I guarantee it…
Like/”Like” it or not.
