Welcome to episode 378 of Healing What Ails You.
Today we look at using laughter to heal.
If you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps and want to see something mildly humorous to turn your day around try this.
Turn email alerts on for “likes” on your blog and have WP email you whenever you get a like on a post.
For the most part it’s pretty boring and after a few emails you wont even read what’s sent, the Title of the email gives more than enough information, but if you can get over the boring bit there is one thing that email alerts do which give you an insight into how some people use WP.
For instance this afternoon I saw a person “like” fourteen posts on the one site. Not really that strange given that the WP system is based around people liking what they read.
However here is the bit I had to laugh at, the average word count of each of those posts is 1272 words and the likes all came in in under two minutes.
So not only did I find someone with an itchy “like” finger (you can get ointment for that) I found the world’s faster reader as well.
Ok so that’s not over humorous and it wont heal anything, in fact it’s actually kind of pathetic and shows how pointless the “Like” system can be when not used properly. But at the end of the day, which isn’t far away, I had a rant and needed to get the word heal in it.
