I usually click the like button every time I read a blog. This is just a small way to pay it forward as you build personal relationships with other bloggers.

By the way, I also click the like buttons on comments.

Hi Anna -- my view on the Like button.   I try(I may forget) to hit like for each post I comment as well as comments received on my posts.  I also try(again, won't say 100%) to hit like on questions I answer as well the responses received when I ask a question.   

I also press Like for great responses/comments/answers when I see something particularly like-worthy(smart, snarky, because I Like the person -- who knows why) anytime I feel like it.

Well, if I really like it, I click 'LIKE' button Anna Hatridge . Not to mention, I have soft corner for many of my AR friends who I interact with more often - so they get 'LIKE' by default.

Great question Anna. Anytime I read a post that has good content, I will always like the post, but if not I may just comment.

Make it a great weekend!

For me I usually like posts that have a fresh take on something, are well written or are simply something I totally agree with. It could be a combination of those three elements. I once liked a post because the posters graphs were very attractive!

I like any ones blog post that has commented on mine.  So, I typically hit the like button and then leave a comment as well.

For others, it's when I like the post.  Though I must admit that I rarely read a post that I don't like!

I only hit like when the author has posted a comment and tagged me. The like is to let them know I did read. Now I only "like" if I do not comment or include a tag of my own. Same applies to 'upvote.'

It's my pleasure to like and also share blog posts that have great informative content. I also enjoy reading stories that others take the time to share. The majority of posts have great content, it's hard to LIKE them all.

The "LIKE" button is like a virtual acknowledgement of approval. I find on places like Facebook, I am tending to "Like" less things just because if I do, it keeps that item refreshed in my feed.

Anna - I probably don't hit the like button enough on blog posts. I usually only click like if I really like the post, find it interesting, humorous, or learn something new.

However, I will comment on just about every blog post I read, and will like any comment that shows up on my posts.
