Seeing stars

July 21, 2009

WordPress came out with a dandy little feature created to inflate and deflate the egos of all its bloggers. 

Introducing…the star ratings!  (applause from the audience)

At the bottom of all my posts there are now some cute little stars.  You get to decide if the post gave you some jollies or bored you to tears and then rate accordingly by clicking on the number of stars you feel it deserves.  I think you can even go back and rate old posts that you found particularly entertaining or irritating.  To the best of my knowledge, I won’t know who rated any given post, so don’t worry about Wordpress ratting you out if you slip in a one star.

In the end, I write what I write because I feel like writing it, and that’s not going to change.  But more people my blog read than comment on it, so it will be helpful for me to have a visual on what people like to read and what might as well be the instruction manual for their hot water heater.

    Ooo! Where did you find this? I might want to add it, as well!
