This is a compliment from my blog to you and yours …

It’s an appreciation of your published content – your creative talent, your imagination and your inspiration and motivation that you chose to present to your readership for their viewing. It’s to celebrate you as a creator, a writer and a thinker – as a presenter, an imaginator, a poet, a fiction writer – it’s to celebrate you.

That is what this compliment is all about – it’s in its simplest form a complemented reblog of your written and published content.

Since adapting my blog to an eCommerce platform, l have certain default WordPress restrictions in place and one of these is that l am no longer able to simply hit ‘reblog’, of another’s content – the same application is found on my own blog from your perspective. So the Gift is a way of very deliberately reblogging content from the last week’s worth of reading or however long a period it is. 

Recently I also introduced a newer blog reading system and this means l am now reading collectively more blogs per week and catching up to only being a week behind in my reading. I will never be entirely caught up with everyone’s day to day postings – but let’s be honest – who is?

As l read through the marvelous content of authors, l want to share your words, your humour and so on and that is what the Gift is about.  l don’t manically LIKE everything with a pulse either I like what l like and l only like it if l have read it, and if l loved it for whatever reason, then l am going to want to gift you a compliment. I will share it again with my own readership and feel sure they will love it too.

Gifting the Compliment is simply my way of saying to you ….

‘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 if you do not wish to, l am not fishing for compliments back – 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– how you respond and react or not is down to you. 

Although the ‘Compliment’ is not an award, l have noticed that at times the ‘internal WordPress’ notification systems do NOT work and those that l am complimenting are not even aware of this post presence or that they have been complimented.

There is no ‘ceremony or pomp’ attached to these Compliments – there is no call to action to respond – there is no additional tagging, no questions to answer – it is just a compliment and purely a gift of thanks.

However, what is the point to being complimented if you don’t even know that? So, in addition to this published post, l will leave an additional comment on your most recent published post before l close my blog down for the day at 10.30pm UK time just to say  ‘You have been Complimented’ with a link to this published post in case the notification has landed in your spam or you haven’t seen it.

  1. Thank you for the compliment! I am just about to suspend blogging for the foreseeable future – but I’m still reading – always look forward to your posts. Keep well.

  2. I like this. I’m on WordPress too and sometimes I can’t ‘like’ posts that I really do like. But as you say you can’t read everything great idea!
