The best that you can do, is read the blog!

One of the amusing things about the blogs I write, is that WordPress provide stats, so I know how many views I’ve had in a day, who has requested every blog to be emailed to them once posted, and various other details. It also used to tell me how many had actually watched the videos, but now they are embedded in the blog, that fact has gone out the window. So yes, I find all these videos for your delight, and have no idea how many people actually play them? Dont worry, I’m not planning on giving up on them regardless.

But there is one thing that has amused me over the years, and thats some of the people who have ‘Favorited’ one (or more) of my blogs, but clearly not read it. How do I know this? Well, sometimes its down to the fact that the views number hasnt changed since hours before they liked it, I remember 1 memorable day when 3 people liked a blog, but I only had 1 view all day, and that was for a different article! Yes, tagging the word ‘fashion’ seems to set off all the clothes lovers of the world, though they clearly dont read any of the articles!

“But yes, someone has tagged fashion, I have to like that.” lol!

PS Mentioning Japan in a blog tag has pretty much the same effect.

But fine, the one that amuses me the most, by far, is politics related. Yes, any mention of Trump in a tag, seems to get all the right wing Conservatives over excited, and they like the post, clearly without looking at it, for the simple reason, every time I mention him, its not in a good way!

So today, I wasnt totally surprised when someone posting on here under the name of ‘Australian Conservative’ liked last nights posting about how Trump had so driven California to annoyance, that they are campaigning to have a vote to leave the US. Oh, and of course, my less than thrilling reaction to his decision to ban Muslims from so many countries as well. But yes, he liked that posting!

The irony, when people like your postings, and they have their own page on WordPress, it links 3 of their postings on the email. One of them, ‘My defense of President Trump’s refugee ban’! Yes, the complete opposite of what I said in the posting he liked! Oh, and the views number hadnt changed from this morning!

So yes folks, if you’re going to like a blog posting, whether its mine, or from someone else, take a tip from me, read the blog before liking it, just in case? 😉

The video comes from someone who was a one hit wonder in the UK, and the star of the film was British, but wasnt me!
