I never thought I’ll be doing a 1000 ‘likes’ post.
I can still remember the first time I received a ‘like’, it felt surreal. Unlike being ‘liked’ on Facebook or Instagram, ‘likes’ on WordPress are usually from people who don’t know me at all.
I feel that ‘likes’ is underrated. Compared to comments and follows. But ‘likes’ can actually mean a lot. It means that someone really reaches your post. At least, reading your post’s title.
Some WordPress users ‘like’ because they enjoy an article and choose to give an acknowledgement to it. I believe that’s the best reason to ‘like’ someone else’s post. There are other reasons for giving ‘likes’, for example:
- Acknowledgement for reading
- Like a photo
- Like the title
- Like the author
- Like “so you can like me back”
- Accidental likes
- Like bots
1000 ‘likes’ may not seem like a huge number to some of you, but to me, it means a lot.
Looking back, I have made so many cool friends through this blog.
I hope you don’t mind I mentioned you without your permission.
If I missed out on you, it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you. I am aware of everyone who ‘liked’, repost, commented and interacted with me. And I am extremely grateful for everyone who cared for this blog in the slightest bit. I never thought I will be an author of a blog with 1000 post-likes and almost 200 followers.
Even if I don’t get any ‘likes’ or followers for the rest of my life, it doesn’t matter. I will still continue to write. Because I am already so blessed to have such great fellow blogger friends like you guys.
I really enjoy writing these milestones posts. Thanks for growing with me.
