I stumbled across this video the other day, and I can’t quite remember how I found it but I am certainly glad that I did. This is just fantastic. Like, totally, check it out –
What was that Bruce Wayne quote, the people deserve the truth? Or was that Alfred? Anyway, I’ve decided to come clean.
Just recently I was reading over a couple of my older posts, not for any particular reason, and as I was scrolling down the page I accidentally clicked like on one of the posts. On one of my own posts. To be specific I liked Life Typos. And in a moment of despair I was about to unclick the like button when something in the back of my mind stopped me. And I let my hand hover there. And I just thought about it for a moment…
No one would ever know (unless I write an entire post about it).
No one looks at who likes what anyway.
I could just…leave it there.
I could just…like it.
The worst part was it came up in my notifications and everything, “Write and Day liked your post”. Oh the shame. It was like a permanent thing, as if it couldn’t be undone even if it was. That notification wasn’t going anywhere whether I unchecked or not. Just as a constant reminder of my mistake.
I’m not an expert on blogging etiquette, but if liking your own posts is anything like real life, I think I gave myself a virtual high five. But you know what? I’m not ashamed of it. Not to say I am going to start liking all of my own posts but you know, I accidentally liked one of my own posts and I’m going to roll with that. Make lemonade from lemons as they say.
Yes I did the unthinkable. I left it there. I let that Write and Day post be liked by Write and Day, just as a gesture of, ‘Hey I did like reading that post, so what does it matter if I wrote it as well?’
So exile me from the blogosphere but that bad boy is staying liked. It is what it is, and I am whatever Gotham needs me to be.
Okay, that last bit was Bruce again.
