I don’t always have time to read your posts. Short quirky posts get unfair priority, while substantial pieces, likely to enlighten me, are saved for some other day.
I looked for a read later button, but I can find no such thing on WordPress. When I try to come back to it later, it is almost always lost in a barrage of posts on my reader list.
There are bloggers out there that seem to have found this magic time machine, liking every post of every follower. I don’t know how they do it, but I refuse to just click the like button on everything in my read list for the sake of views. Not only do you risk the chance of liking some really terrible, hateful piece; you deny all the bloggers who put their time, heart, and sweat the chance to be heard.
As you get to know me, you will learn that I love a good challenge. Problem solving and finding a solution gives me that warm, tingly feeling inside. So, fellow bloggers, here is my solution:
I would like to regularly post this piece as a place for you to share your best! It could be your favorite post of the week or someone else’s that deserves a good read. There is no time limit. You can also share one of your favorites from before you had followers, collecting dust, unread in the corner of your blog.
A place to network, sure, there are plenty out there and they are great. This would be too. But more so, this would be a place to put something your proud of; that other people would be missing out on if they didn’t get a chance to read it.
There are just a few rules:
No follower or like count posts No Blog Award Posts and
No Quotes by someone else, where the only content is that quote
Of course, no rules are set in stone. If your post violates one of these, but is still so amazing that you feel you have to share it, well then, share away.
So please, leave me a link of your BEST pieces. We will create a library of sorts, storing the best and the brightest of the web. Scroll through the list and check out some of the other posts as well; take a gander at what you’ve been missing. Reblogging this might also help spread your Best around the blogosphere.
To get the ball rolling, here is a piece that I am proud of that has been collecting dust in the corner of my blog Say What?
It was a speech I gave shortly before last year’s elections, designed to be read aloud using, alliteration, rhyming, and imagery to make the words pop out. If you can spare 4 minutes of your time, I would love for you to check out one of my favorites.
Now it’s your turn to say what you want the world to hear. Please, leave a link below and when you get time, come back and taste the rainbow! We can be time bandits together, stealing back precious minutes and spending them on quality reads.
