Momservation: It’s not bribery—it’s reward based encouragement.
☺ ☺ ☺
Apparently, I’ve been going about this all wrong.
Here I was trying to get people to like me by hoping to give them a chuckle, maybe some useful parenting tips, or even a satisfyingly good tear-jerker now again with my Momservations blog.
Who knew all I had to do was post an If-I-Get-a-Million-Likes photo to Facebook by way of an adorable kid with an irresistible plea—you’re golden!
I mean, really, Facebook is populated with pleading pictures for a million Likes. Heck, I just Liked a picture trying to get some cute twins to Disneyland. Dad better start booking the airline tickets now because those cutie-patooties were already up to 775,000 Likes by the time I hit ‘em up.
The short amount of time it’s taking to get these million Likes is amazing too. I just Liked a picture of a teacher trying to illustrate for her students the cautionary tale of photos they post going viral (or just being visual to thousands of strangers). By the time I Liked it last week the photo had been circulating for a week and she was already up to 275,000 likes and 45,000 comments. It currently has over 4 million Likes.
So, I’m going to give it a whirl! And I’m okay if people just kinda like me. I don’t need a million Likes. Maybe just 1,000 to my Momservations® Facebook page just so I know it’s not just my mom, dad, and grandma who are reading me (actually, Gramma doesn’t even read me because she doesn’t own a computer or smart phone).
I’ve enlisted the help of one of my children (the one the other two will argue is my favorite). But I’ve learned the cuter the better, so I think this one’s the best choice. I’ve also thrown in the irresistible urge to help factor. Trust me, if you guys get me to 1,000 Likes—Darby won’t just be my best friend anymore. She will be eternally grateful and loyal to all of you who made her fondest wish come true:
