Thursday Thought – Dislike The Truth?

I’ve often wondered about the concept of liking a post when all you actually want to do is let the poster know that you’ve been around. You don’t feel like leaving a message so you think it will be OK to just hit the like button. So… if you don’t like what the poster has said, you still hit the like button where maybe you should just have passed by!

Seems to me that my post yesterday didn’t really go down well – but how would people know what I’m saying if they don’t read the full post? Beats me. Anyway… let me move swiftly on… as I’m supposed to be here to leave smiles. Maybe it’s time for me to hang up my blogging boots…

Happy Independence Day to all my US of A friends… and family! Seems there are many battles raging in your country… for control of the hearts and minds. Some would say free speech and equality of opportunity are suffering as a result. Long live your concept of independence… of freedom and of the rights of the individual!

Here’s a suitable photo… I think! It’s all good and well being a ship… but if you can’t sail away because you’re stuck in the mud, you may as well be a whale beached above the high water mark…

Afloat? Maybe… maybe not! A bit like turning your head away when you see the truth… you know it’s a ship but you can’t seem to get the idea that it can float… again!

    I always read the post (and all the comments). I use the like button to say “Hello, I like the photo and I like your post, but I don’t necessarily have something to add to what you already said” or “Sorry, I don’t have time to stop for a chat, but I still appreciate your post.”

    Hi aj
    I don’t always leave a like – for example – one of the guys I follow just had two quotes that i disagreed with – and I could not click like and it was not worth my time to leave a comment

    But some folks sure do just leave like as a hello – yet sometimes the blogger doesn’t even see it –
    And don’t hang up your blogging boots – unless you want to – but maybe you are here for more reasons than just to bring smiles – be yourself and try not to think about outcomes and replies – unless that is your endgame –

  3. Poor boat!

    I do press ‘like’ and move on on some days, especially when I’m having a hard time in my life, and not able to blog as much as I’d like to. I hope it’s ok I do that with your posts sometimes–it just means I’m struggling, but wanted to let you know that I’m still reading.

I value your 'likes' and comments, even though I don't always reciprocate, I care. Thanks for making the effort! God Bless!!
