If we were to choose?

If blogs were simply flags fluttering around in the wind, which one would you chose to examine closely? Which one would you be awed by and revere, or could walk by without a glance? How do you choose?

A question has been freight-training across my mind for many a days recently. What makes bloggers click the ‘Like’ button on a post, or leave a comment?

Newish to blogging, I’m still learning the ropes and experimenting, seeing what works and what doesn’t in terms or getting readers to click on the page, read, ‘like’ and/or leave a comment. Hence the question above? I’ve had some clicks, some comments, or some just views. So what has tipped some readers into the encouraging habit of clicking and commenting?

It’s fair to say, I haven’t yet figured it out. I’ve had likes on posts that I didn’t think would attract, and sometimes I’ve had views only, on the ones I thought would surely invite ‘Like’ or engage a conversation.

I tend to click the ‘Like’ button to blogs I have completed reading. Frankly, I wouldn’t have finished it if it weren’t interesting, so why not let the author know that.

So the question is, what makes you click on the ‘Like’ button on the blogs you read, or even decide to leave a comment? Have there been times you’ve simply read and moved on? I know it’s a fast-paced world, but I thought I could gain some insight by putting this question out there.
