        Is there any reason for liking all the comments of mine and other bloggers in every post…

        Liked by 1 person

      2. 1. There is no reason to dislike.
        2. I like conversation of others. As conversation fulfil a post.
        3. Inspiration. More than 70% blogs abandoned due to lack of inspiration, like, comment and engagement of readers.
        4. Most readers do post, like post, comment on post but do not read and like comment enough.
        5. I learn a lot from post and reader’s comments. Sometime more information come from conversation than post.
        6. To whom I like more his traffic will grow itself.
        7. Readers like to engage more where they get likes the most.
        8. I don’t like only but do comment also.
        And lots of reason to like, but sorry to say, I am not so lucky to read and like every post at all. But I try to, I would be happy if I could do that.
        Thank you for your important and intelligent question.
