I am a disgusting person, and a disgraceful one, so are you people in the community, most of you. Let me talk about my ugly side first. I spam my likes in the comment sections of a lot of threads, it is weird but, this is my habit of liking things of just pressing the like button, no harm right? Just a friendly gesture of liking something.
However, I really dislike people who drop by my blog and ask (beg) me to follow their blog, literally. They would just spam the comments, and do very outlandish things. There was once, this guy, a mobile gamer, pissed me off to my maximum. Firstly, he asked me for likes for his blog, I was okay to do so. For the next few days, he became persistent, like those pesky bed bugs, constantly commenting on my blog, urging me to follow his blog, and I politely commented back. Deftly I realised, giving no shit was the best thing to do, I flagged his comment as spam, and naturally, he slumped back into nothingness, and I proceeded with my own blog, rather than to bother this petty things. All the commentators who asked me to follow his/her blog, I would just mark them as spam, easy.
If I really do have interest in your blog, I would naturally follow your blog, and comment on them. Liking the posts is just my form of respect to you as a blogger. But, in all seriousness, why does the following button count so much for you? In my take, I blog because I love to write, and the interaction between bloggers, but lately, the second aspect kind of fade away because life have gotten too busy for me, and I would rather emphasize on writing rather than bonding because I knew if my writing is good, my blog is well-maintained, I would get people to read my work.
Inversely, if I have good bonding but have average writing skills, I would be unhappy to see myself at this point of life, it would be akin to scamming to me. Synonymous to a Youtube channel, if I could not provide quality content, why do I bother to even bond among other bloggers? I would feel the pang of guilt of not bringing my best to the blogging community.
For the follow part, I absolute disgust the part where bloggers drop by and just show some accolades, and ask me to follow. Does this follow thing really matter to you? What if you have a million followers just in a flick of fingers, can you handle all that? I hope you can understand that blogging is an art of sharing but not forcing, if I found you a likeable personality, I would automatically look at your blog, and follow you. Normally this type of comments would just disappear as I flag them as spam but, this would be a leeway. Thank you. 😊😊😊
This was a reply to one of the bloggers that made me flustered. Really. Take some time ruminate about the questions that I had mentioned above.
