The Concept of Blind Likes II

Hello, my Readers ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€.

Yesterday I have done a very different post to examine the concept of Blind Likes and it was really a fun. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ *yayyee*

(I think you should also try this. It will filter your likes ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜)

Well, the results are mixed and I’m gonna share them with you in this post. Okay so let’s start.

Within 5 minutes after the publishing, I received 2 likes very quickly, which I considered as Blind Likes. Because I stated in the post that please DO NOT like this post. So, If anyone likes the post, this means he didn’t read it. (Really Interesting na!!?… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. Yes it is ๐Ÿ˜‹). Both likes were from a graphics related blog and a video games related blog. I don’t want to mention anyone’s name here I’m afraid they can sue me as I’d degraded their reputation. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

In total, I received 27 likes so far. On the blog, the very first comment I got from Amy Westphal. Thank you so much Amy for your comment. Really appreciate it… โคโค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Then later I received a detailed comment from one of my favorite bloggers. Actually the best in poetry. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜. Thought for Change by Adii. Thank you so so so much for your comment Adii and for not liking the post as I mentioned to do. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Other honorable mentions are:

All about life

Why to Stop

Thank you very much each and every blogger who commented on the post. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜โคโคโคโคโคโค.

Okay, now move to the observations.

Well, the results are a bit surprising because I found two bloggers who I thought that actually read my all posts because I receive many likes from them but they didn’t respond to the post and simply liked it. This means that they didn’t read. It’s quite surprising and disappointing for me as I read their every single post with full attention. On the other side, I received comments from those who I didn’t expect that they would do. Some of them are my followers and some were new.

I observed from people’s opinion that this concept is completely normal and good. Everyone does this. It’s up to you to confess it or not.

Rachna from WhyToStop gave a brilliant opinion that she give likes to the posts as the support for other bloggers so they become encouraged to post more blogs and feel confident about their writing. And the other blogger Tancy realizes the same thing that even she gets blind likes, but they encourage her and give her confidence to write more frequently about the new topics.

Overall, it puts a good impact on the blogosphere and encourages people to write more.

Well, what about me now?? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I also do blind likes. I use them as Adii mentioned above. I think the bloggers who are my favorite ones right now, I once liked their posts without reading and started following them. Then I found their later posts interesting and they become my favorites…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—.

This is how blogging works. This is how you connect with people. So don’t ever think that you are doing any wrong in it. But it becomes wrong when you only want their attention. I mean, just only for ATTENTION and once they start to follow you, you unfollow them and not reading any stuff. So avoid these things, if you want a good blogger and build a good website.

Generally, you get the blind likes from the people you do not follow and they aren’t following you too. Some people drop many likes on your blog and then start to follow you eventually. Now If you follow them back, it establishes a connection between you and them. Now it’s up to you to read each other’s posts or not. Because you still can like them blindly so you remain connected with each other.

Basically, a blind like is a signal to other blogger that he’s also on WordPress and you should check his posts and follow his account. This is how it works!!

I do this many times and still doing because it is really useful to increase traffic and to reach maximum people and to interact with them later.

Now maybe my followers will unfollow me as I liked their some of posts without reading ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค•.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

But this is reality readers. This is how you reach to the people and make connections. It is not possible to read all the posts in the reader tab especially when you are planning for monetization because you also have to comment on the posts and write regularly and find ideas regularly and planning a little bit for future. (Just a little bit).

Now, feel free to like this post. No restrictions. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

And share your views on this. I really really like to interact with all of you ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜.

Thank you so much for the support my lovely readers… โคโค๐Ÿ˜˜

Have a beautiful day everyone โค

  1. Can you imagine how amazing it is if blind people like your blog, and it is a photography blog?
    And yet it is true. Blind people like and follow and “see” my blog in different ways. They are some of my best followers.And they see so much more than what I see.
    But they can’t look at my posts.
    It doesn’t matter who looks at your blog, who doesn’t, but it matters who likes your blog, because these people are saying you are a potential friend, they want to make.
    Honestly it is a matter of not being ego driven with “who looks at my posts?”
    And, opening up to a community you are a part of, who read stuff sometines, not always, but eventually.

    1. Well, this one is a very interesting comment…….nd a bit complicated to understand for me too ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜….
      You’re right actually….It’s not about the fact “who looks at my post, who doesn’t ?”….It’s just a part of blogging and making connections with bloggers……
      Thank youu soo much for spending time over here……
      I really appreciate people like you, who actually read the posts nd comment…๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„โคโค…

  2. This is a true fact. But yes, not everyone does it. When someone drops a like on my post I definitely go and check their blogs , no matter if they read my post or not. It is true that blind likes are used to get attention! I’ve noticed that bloggers with more than one or two thousand followers drop random liked on my blog , which I BLINDLY believe they didn’t read and the reason why they do this is because they have a well developed and established blog. So any reader would be interested in their blog! And there you go, I click on the follow and they have a follower in return of liking a post. This is really rude but this is the only way one can bring in readers, specially the ones who might be interested in their blogs!
    This post is very honest! Thank you for your comment on my blog, once again ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Yeah it seems rude, but an effective way to generate traffic. And just because of this single thing we also can’t say that the bloggers on WordPress are rude or selfish..
      We know, everything can’t be 100% perfect.
      Thank you very much for reading and commenting on the post…

  4. Haha.. And you thought that people will do as they asked to?? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Its funny and unreal to think that “most/many” people’ll read what you have written, coz believe it or not, it doesn’t happen! (Unless, it is the loyal ones, who specially log in to WP to read your posts)
    Good luck with your experiments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeah rytt.
      Only 2 readers out of 10 will read your posts an DC connect to it (on the basis of my observation and calculation ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰).
      Thank you so much for reading and commenting โคโคโค.
      By the way, people log out the WP account??… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

  5. This may sound bad but just because someone followed me doesn’t mean I follow them back. I definitely check out their blog though. If I like it then I follow or else I don’t. While I do want to increase traffic on my blog but at the same time I would much rather have 2 likes that genuinely appreciate my post. Because I started writing to connect with people, not just receive fake likes. A conversation is more important for me. But yes, I also do agree that in the beginning seeing likes on my post did make me happy. I guess I’m not that concerned about this whole thing because I don’t plan on monetizing my blog but just use it to express my opinion.

    1. I do this too. I mean I do not follow every blog following me. If it is of MY TYPE then I definitely follow.
      Yeah you’re right.
      You aren’t familiar with this thing so might be you found it bad or inappropriate…..
      Thank you so much for giving your time and dropping the comment….

  6. Hmm. While I don’t usually do it, but I guess that’s something we can’t really remove from other bloggers. It is our responsibility to compose great blog posts to get their attention anyway.

    1. Yeah.. We can’t and it shouldn’t be in my opinion…..
      Undoubtedly we need to produce great quality content on our websites to attract the audience….
      Thank you so much for your comment..
