Gifting the Compliment Directory


This is a compliment from my blog to you …

… an appreciation as a reader of written content – be that to a post written, a prompt or series you created, a topical or entertaining story, a fantasy tale, a beautiful poem or charming rhyme –  it is something you wrote and something that l read – which may at times  and quite oft the occasion, be long after you originally wrote it – but l am always behind in my reading which l think is a good thing because l am able to appreciate the ‘afterwards’ of the post.

 But l loved it, liked it, appreciated it, found it funny, understood the depth to it , understood you because of it, it was relatable and awarded me resonation or maybe – l am sorry you are going through this but l do understand – whatever the reason is  … l wanted to express my compliments to you for the post and the way it touched me at the time that l read it.

But equally these are great published posts that may have not been seen by others the first time around and hopefully they will now take the time to view them.

Although the ‘Compliment’ is not an award, l have noticed that at times the ‘internal WordPress’ notification systems do NOT work and they are at times oblivious to its presence,  and whilst there is no stand to ceremoney with the Compliment nor pomp, l do want those receiving to know that l appreciated their posts.

Therefore before the close of my blogging day [around 9.30pm UK Time] in addition to the earlier publishing l will drop a small comment of my own just to say ‘You have been Complimented’ with a link to this published post.

Gifting the Compliment is not like the Blog Awards – it is and was designed to be simpler than that – it’s just me saying:

‘Hey I really liked that post you created and l wanted to let you know with this compliment!’

There is no need for you to do anything else – you don’t have to respond, l am not complimenting you for the ‘thanks’   – l am complimenting you for the great content you have produced –  you don’t even have to acknowledge it, if you want to say thanks – great, if not – great – l know a lot of people become a little edgy with compliments – how you respond and react or not is down to you.

There is no additional tagging, no questions to answer – it is just a compliment and purely a gift of thanks.

  1. awwwwww, thanks Rory. Such a nice compliment. My little dog is one of the loves of my life, even though he’s a holy terror most of the time. Glad you enjoyed reading about the little guy.
