Ten reasons I might not have liked your post

VIBES

In todays world there are so many different social media outlets, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with them all. We have our Email, Facebook, Instagram, Snap chat, Twitter, Pinterest, MSN messenger…what not cool anymore? Anyways you get the idea, there are just so many accounts to keep up with one can easily find themselves drowning in notifications. Yet society expects our online response times to be almost instant while never missing a beat in real life.

I do my best to scroll through my feeds throughout the day, catching up on whats going on in the world around me. Most of it is friends’ daily activities, the odd blog post or share from a small business I follow. Most of the time I will scroll through and like as I go and flag something I find interesting and go back and read it once the kids are in bed. Some days are busier than others so it means less scrolling and quit often things are missed, which is totally fine as real time is more important, or so I thought…

WRONG. Did you know that it’s expected to stay present in my life and like EVERY SINGLE POST that shows up on my feed? Someone actually called me out for not “liking” one of their posts, and liking someone else’s that was similar. I mean how dare I?

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Someone actually had the time to notice that I liked someone else’s post and go back to theirs and check to see if I had liked theirs and then call me out on it. Who the heck has time for this nonsense? I surely don’t. Here are ten reasons I might not have liked your post (and, guess what, to be mean wasn’t one of them)!

  1.  I just didn’t see it
  2. I was sleeping
  3. I was colouring with my daughter
  4. I ignored it
  5. I was cooking dinner
  6. My phone battery died
  7. It didn’t show up on my feed
  8. My dog ate my phone
  9. I was nursing my baby
  10. It just didn’t interest me

I could go on and on with the excuses as to why I didn’t like it but the point is nobody should HAVE to like something because its there. There are so many different share groups out there that it creates false sense of engagement. I too participate in them, yet I only share the ones I truly enjoy reading, just as I would expect others to do to me. If you don’t like my post, or don’t see my post, move on. I won’t take it personally and I hope you don’t too.

End of story.

    Omg, I love this! I hate the false sense of engagement that comes from a lot of groups. I’d much rather people pass me by if they don’t connect with what I’m writing. Commenting should never feel like a job. It should be genuine, and hey…sometimes you just won’t get to stuff.

    Sometimes I passive aggressively refuse to like someone’s post… haha! Just kidding. I can’t believe someone called you out. Don’t they know that you can’t see everything on Facebook all the time.

      Ha! Passive aggressively refuse! Trust me, I was amazed that people have the time to point out when something as silly as a like was missed.

    Glad this one popped up in my feed 😉 I honestly WISH I had more time to support all my friends and blogger peeps, but we are mamas and sometimes it just does NOT happen. We have to be gentle with each other and respect each other’s time 🙂

    11. I unfollowed you because you have a tendency to be catty so your isht doesn’t show up in my feed.

    What a waste of energy. At least it made for a good blog post!

    Oh the list of reasons could go on and on and on! Who has time to see everything. Every post isn’t shown on every single followers feed… crazy to think we would be held to those standards! There is real life to live between the scrolling!

    I can’t believe some people can be so juvenile. There is definitely no reason for any of that and you certainly don’t deserve it directed towards you. You are an amazing person, mom, friend and I am so lucky to have you in my life!!!
