Hey, Bloggers – when you are going through your “reading” tab and discovering blogs, have you ever followed a conversation? If so, why? (when we have notifications) AND more importantly have you “blocked” a site? I never click on other options, until recently…
I am always looking for new blog sites, that I might find interesting or a connection with the writer, but some I know I just don’t have an interest in them. I suppose it could be based on goal, what we are trying to accomplish with our blog. Mine is for comradery. Therefore, “how to” or “marketing” don’t appeal to me and it always seems their blogs pop up the most. What do they do, post 20x a day? So I have recently taken to “blocking” sites like an unfollow or “hide posts like these” in Facebook. No, I don’t want make up tips – very rarely wear the stuff. No, I don’t want politics. Or anything that looks satanic/witchery/sorcery. I only look at a few photography sites.
I felt badly at first, because they haven’t personally done anything to me, but then I realized, I much prefer those out of my feeds while scrolling through the Reader. Does anyone else do this? I certainly HOPE WordPress doesn’t send notices to the bloggers. – YOU’VE been blocked. I remember the first time on Facebook, when I went to unfriend someone I really didn’t keep in touch – it told them. That was an interesting conversation.
Share what features you like to use in WordPress, I’m open to discovering new things.
P.S. I absolutely HATE that WordPress designed the Reader tab, so that people could just scroll down and hit the “star” button without reading/opening post. They just scroll down and hit like, like, like to market their site.
