At the bottom of every post, I have a little multiple-choice post-script, that asks you, the reader, whether the post "Made you: smile, hurt, think or hope. For some reason, hardly anyone clicks on these choices, even though the clicks are anonymous, and don't require any log-in.
So what I'm wondering is - is this post-script hard to see? Is it just lost there at the bottom of each post, unnoticed and therefore unclicked? Or is that the choices offered are the wrong ones? Should I have used different words? Such as "Made me: puke". Or "Made me: yawn"? Or maybe just "None of the above"?
It's not terribly important, I suppose. But it does give me a little affirmation that my post has indeed evoked some response. So if you haven't noticed it until now, look for it. If you're an anonymous reader, don't worry that your click can be traced back to you (if it can, I don't know how to - and am not inclined to find out, either way). If you think that it doesn't matter, know that it does, even if just a tiny bit, to me, if no one else. It tells me a bit about the effect my writing has.
I'm curious, and keen, so if you are inclined, kindly click. (I love alliteration; do you?)
