So I’ve only been blogging here a relatively short amount of time and today I noticed something for the first time – Trophies.
Here on WordPress your likes, posts and follows are all quantified and celebrated with colourful graphics in your ‘trophy case’. Although the gamer in me would love nothing better than to collect as many of these trophies as possible (more, more, more!) there’s a part of me that thinks ‘Hang on there a minute. You mean I could just post any old sh*t and still ‘achieve’ the next level?’
Like many bloggers out there I put off starting my blog for a long time as I was worried I didn’t have anything original to say and even if I did write something interesting, who would read it?
Thankfully you are reading. Some of you are even coming back and liking and commenting multiple times. To those people (you know who you are) I’d like to say thank you. It means more to me seeing people commenting thoughtfully on my posts time and again, than any trophy ever would.
Yes, I could probably find something to post every day of the week and rack up a higher volume of posts but I hope you’ll bare with me whilst I compile posts that I’d actually like to read, and enjoy writing, instead of the endless swatching many nail blogs seem to have been reduced to.
What are your thoughts on trophies? Do they motivate you to blog more or are they unnecessary graphics and nothing more? Is a blog with more posts better?
