Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year. I’ve had this blog for two years, so I have only 2017 and 2018 to draw from.
Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer followers to some of you earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember?
Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.
If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 21st) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.
It would be great if everyone who reads this post would scroll down to the comments and check out the posts that others provide links to.
I originally posted this one on June 21, 2014 in an old, now defunct blog of mine.
What’s Not To Like?
Like I was thinking the other day about the word “like.” And that, like, gave me an idea to, like, write a post not just, you know, using the word “like,” but to, like, write one about the word “like.”
But I wasn’t sure about it, so I, like, texted my BFF. I was like, “What do you think about me writing a post on my blog about the word ‘like’?”
She was like, “Oh yeah, I would be, like, down with that. You should, like, totally do it.”
So I was like, yeah, I think I might just write a post on my, you know, blog, about the word “like.” But then I, like, couldn’t really, you know, think of what I wanted to say about the word “like.” It’s, like, sort of a lame word, a filler word, actually. It’s not intense, like “love” or “hate.” It’s so, like, nondescript.
Like if I say I like something, it’s not that I, like, love it. It doesn’t, like, knock me over or anything. It’s, like, you know, not bad; it’s, like, okay. And like really, who would want to, like, read a post about a blasé word like “okay”?
So I texted my BFF again and I was like, “Would you, like, read my blog if I wrote a post about the word ‘okay’?”
And she was like, “Prolly not.”
So I decided to, you know, like, not write a post about the word “like.”
