I’m tempted to cite this as proof that SOMETHING about WordPress or (more likely) it’s community is VERY broken…
SO, what am I talking about? The fact that when I logged back into my “adult” blog, which I hadn’t done in over a year and a half, I consistently had HIGHER totals for views and likes than this blog, FOR THE PAST 15 MONTHS STRAIGHT.
THAT despite the fact my erotica blog has 54 followers and this one has 779 followers.
Anybody see some inconsistencies here?
Now it COULD be that I’m just that good a story teller, BUT somebody here recently told me I wasn’t a good enough writer to migrate to Medium.com. Regardless of that, I’d say it does prove what I’ve been saying for a long time now: The vast majority of WordPress members don’t give a damned about any content beyond their own. Similarly, Likes and Follows aren’t genuine, just something to trade to give the illusion of popularity. Complete social media mentality.
I can’t remember the last time I asked a question or provided a writing prompt here and got a single reply without bitching later.
