Not bad for a fat girl

I Just Don’t Get It

6iy544o5tI’ve written about this before, so I apologize if you’re surfing around and you’ve just read something similar, but it’s bugging me, so I have to let it out.

It’s this… why is it that stuff that I slap together and throw on the blog frequently outperforms blogposts that I’ve struggled over and tweaked endlessly? It’s like choosing a selfie over the Mona Lisa. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but why?

This is pretend. Clicking it will take you nowhere. Please use the real buttons.

Is it that the “quickie” posts are off the cuff and not too dry?

Are they more “relatable” than my epic masterpieces?

Are they shorter, and therefore quicker to read?

Or are people just fickle, and like what they like, regardless of how much thought and effort goes into something?

Maybe I shouldn’t be so uptight about it. After all, Kraft makes a mean mac and cheese that can be on your plate in less than fifteen minutes, and even though I know how to make homemade, there are still times (more than I’d like to admit to) that their version is the one I’d prefer.

I just wonder if other bloggers find this to be true? Do you find that “quickie” posts often generate more interest than well thought out pieces?

And readers, what do you think? Is it just that we prefer some light reading to more dense material, or is something else at play here?you_like_this_on_facebook-1920x1080

I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments below.

Oh, and by the way, this was a quickie, so you’ll probably want to “like” and “share” it.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the teenage son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. I tell you what I’ll swap my 12 followers for your 1000+ followers!!! Lol!! I don’t think it’s a case of people just pressing ‘like’ without reading. Sometimes it’s a case of lack of time, great article but don’t want to necessarily comment; or no particular reason for not commenting. What I find interesting is the fact that I get people clearly reading my blog, but just remaining completely invisible, no comments or likes at all, but my daily stats say there are people/traffic who have looked at my blog! Seriously though, I don’t think there’s a reason for what readers do, they just they don’t do what you expect them to at times. Enjoy the likes, because there are people out there that like what you’re doing, including me. Enjoy the moment. 😊
