Level up! 500 Likes


Achievement unlocked: 500 Likes!

As a RPG gamer, I always think that the first few levels are intentionally easy

  • Level 1: set up the blog
  • Level 2: Publishing the first review
  • Level 3: Getting the first views from readers through search engines
  • Level 4: Publish 5 reviews
  • Level 5: Publish 20 reviews
  • Level 6: every day a hit – constant traffic
  • Level 7: first follower
  • Level 8: Publish 50 reviews
  • Level 9: 5 views daily
  • Level 10: Publish a guest review
  • Level 11: Schedule a review
  • Level 12: Attract a pingback
  • Level 13: 50 ARC Reviews
  • Level 14: 500 Likes

My last Level up! 50 Netgalleys was just 6 days ago. But when I’m in grinding mood, nothing can stop me hitting that next sweet ding.

Likes are the currency of social networks. They come in different forms like thumbs up, kharma, stars, but are ever sought after. Some go crazy for them, turning into the social network form of zombies, the so-called “like whores”, giving body and soul for that sweet notifications, luring their followers into like traps.

My first like on this blog arrived this year. I didn’t network before and found that it’s like love: you get back the more you spread it out. Sometimes, it feels more like a “yeah, I’ve seen your post” up to a “wow, that was great”. Every like coming from your heart, folks, is appreciated, and feels good.

Thank you for your awareness, for your attention, for your likes 🙂

    Hahahaa, I “liked” this post. And I know exactly what you mean about “likes” ranging from “I read this” to “Wow”. I feel that same range of emotion when I go around to those I follow.

    Do you have a big level up plan or is it a “make it up as you go” kind of thing?

    Well done! Oh, the opiate hit of the “like”. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t mean anything anymore…😏 And yes, networking and especially commenting is the key. I’ve learnt that from better bloggers than me. Here’s to 1000!

    Here’s another like to your collection! 😄 I do relate to what you said about liking posts 😉 That’s why I think comments are more valuable, as they actually make the connection more real – not only “been there, seen that”, but also a willingness to connect. That said, I still like getting likes! 😄

    Here’s another like. I never thought about those “zombie / likewhores’ thing, but thinking about it now, I know plenty who get excited with all the likes they gather, and network most of the day to gather even more.
    Good luck on your blogging journey.
