A Curiosity Question

WordPress tells me that there are over 500 folks who have “subscribed” to this site, who get a notice whenever I publish anything. Which is pretty much every day. And depending on what drivel I’m spouting, I’ll get one or two, or very rarely eight or ten, “likes” via WordPress or Twitter or FaceBook. So I’m thinking that 500-plus number might not mean what I think it means.

Anyway, one of the things I’ve always done with my pages is to put in internal links, like this, which point off to some relevant previous post.

Maybe something about critters, birds, or lizards. (Actually, I consider the birds and lizards to be “critters,” but let’s not split hairs. Or feathers. Or scales.)

Or a friend who’s no longer with us, who I think of pretty much every day.

Or a trip – where I really should finish posting pictures, were’ barely halfway through! (Didn’t I say that at the beginning of this year? What happened?! Oh, yeah…2020. SHAZZBATT!)

So the questions are:

  1. Do these links work for everyone? I assume they do because they work for ME when I look at my posts, but I’m also looking at it with my file permissions and publishing rights, so maybe it’s not working for everyone else? And…
  2. Do you use them, or is it a complete waste of my time?

Thanks, have a safe Halloween tomorrow!

    I enjoy them, and yes, I use the links.

  2. Well you know I read them, and I only follow links if I’m interested.

    WordPress ‘follows’ are made up of blog follows using the wordpress button, which means you appear in people’s readers, and your Follow email sign-up, which is how I follow, which means I get your post (or summary) emailed to me.

    I follow a heck of a lot of people on the Reader… but rarely look at them. Although I can mange email signups to them that way.

    I *really* follow people who I’ve asked to email me 🙂

    A belated “yes, they do work”, FWIW!
