As a newbie blogger, it is difficult to gauge whether your own writing content is interesting to others. Computer whiz and husband are not interrelated terms in this household. I am still showing him how to use all the features on his iPhone and he has had it for several years. With that said, it is difficult to get him to read anything, but I succeeded in getting him to sit down and read my first blog.
I walked away to give him time and space to read the words written for everyone’s edification and amusement. Upon reentering the room, he was folding his glasses and said, “I like it and pushed a button at the bottom that said ‘Like’.” This threw me for a loop.
I vehemently replied, “You can’t do that!”
He adamantly responded, “Why not, I liked it?”
I was frustrated and revealed, “Because it is the same as me liking myself, since the computer is signed into my account.”
He then begins a contentious dissertation justifying his actions and answers saying, “You asked me to read this. I liked it and pushed the button, what is wrong with that?”
Following further discussion, I realized he still lacks comprehension, so I rebounded with this statement, “You cannot like something I have written, unless you sign into your own account.”
Later in the day I received an email, a preformatted notification about the ‘Like’ received on my post. With certainty, there have been many bloggers receiving the same email at WordPress. After shamefully reading it, I found my husband and brought him to the computer to read it for himself.
Feeling vindicated, I stated, “See? It is vain to like yourself!”
He paused for a moment and replied, “I promise I will not like anything else you write.”
