One of the things that I noticed in war was how difficult it was for our soldiers, at first, to realize that there are no rules to war. Our men were raised in sports, where a referee runs a football game, or an umpire a baseball game, and so forth. —Dwight D. Eisenhower

    The battle plan is the first thing that goes out a window. Paraphrased by my spouse. The “like” button…to have or not to have, that is the question I often ponder.

      Thanks for your comments, Brenda. I put the “like” button back on the page after pondering it for a few months. Life’s full of choices—mine and my readers—and it’s perfectly fine not to use it on every post. Not everything in life is “likeable”.

        Allen, I think the WordPress Reader includes a “like” button even if the post does not?

          It can be turned off for all posts and enabled as a one-at-a-time option on selected posts.

        Oh…a post may not be “likable” while at the same time being significantly touching/important…your latest Nazi history posting, for example.

    This is so powerful it’s brilliant. Thanks for sharing, Allan.

    Also, I miss the like button on your blogs. Would you bring it back?

      Thanks for your comment. I can put it back as long as everyone realizes that not everything can be “liked”. I’m good with that.

        Well, I “like” only the ones I do like. But I also feel that sometimes I like a post, but don’t have anything to say about it. That’s when I miss that button. It’s a gesture from me to you that I appreciate a post, but there’s more I’d add to it. Consider it. But even if you decide against it, know that I’m a fan of your work.

          Thanks for sharing your point of view on the “Like” button. I see your point and have adjusted my settings to put it back in. Thanks for following my blog.
