Ha Ha! Ratings? Sorry Everyone!
It’s been two months since I admitted I was so stupid about blog ratings. I was going to write this post earlier, but I thought it most auspicious to do it today as somehow WP cacked. Plus, it is still an “anniversary” of sorts (my initial target date was one month after “launch.”)
You see, I set up my whole “Ratings Concept” as a bit of a lark. Well, a bit. I do still stand by the fact that I was completely dense regarding this feature. However, I must sincerely apologize to everyone out there for my tiny, wee lark. Especially to all of you who did cast votes. My lark was really small, though. I swear! Nonetheless, something happened that did encourage my lark.
As soon as I implemented the “Ratings Concept,” a day or two later (just 24-48 hours!) I received at least 20 posts or more, all marked as “Very Poor.” Yes. Most of them were recent ones, as well. I found that rather interesting. Did someone else have a “Lark Agenda” of their own?
Or was it Pure Malice! *laughing*
Seriously. I did want to give it a shot. More of the serious? I don’t need readers to tell me what they think of my blog, its content, whatever, by a ratings system. I don’t need little stars, or thumbs pointing up or down, to tell me what people think. That is why I have a Comment Section.
That is just me. Some people may really like seeing ratings. I just see it as another statistical way of somehow trying to measure things. My blog stats have never really been important to me. If anyone gets something out of what I write here, that’s all that matters.
