I would only read a "Please Read" if you wrote it..all others are passed by.. I believe if someone has to beg me to read something, they are posting only to be read. Not for the pleasure of writing.

I as well have to admit it was the, "belly important", that caused me to look. I do read the please read ones as well though. I also look for authors names when I read. I have much to learn and their are many great poets here. I like to read the challenges as well....lol. They are so fun.

I also believe that there is a chain reaction ... the more replies you have, the more chances you have to be read by others.

and you've shown something else RG ... that most people read it because it was you ...

and here you go on top again !

Sunshine: I put the 'belly important' in because of my sense of humour and because I was feeling guilty about getting people to read under false pretenses...LOL and ROFL @ insertion of a ring in a belly button...oh my!..*g*

HUGS


WhtDove: I like the idea of "Please Don't Read This"...LOL...but wouldn't we all hate it if we were taken literally...I don't know about others but my heart does a little flip when I get the mail notification and then I kind of peep through my fingers at the comments...and I'm sat here giggling cause I can see me doing it...

HUGS

Kelly: Time is a big factor and that's for sure..

HUGS

Balladeer: ROFL....well now, I could do with a nice warm hand today...*g*

HUSG

PDV: Oh, Bless you!!..I do think like you though that it's a little off putting when you see that 'please read'..I read one by Alice in Wonderland yesterday and it was magic, so why the 'please read'?..I did ask but haven't yet looked to see if there's an answer..

HUSG

Richard: No worries, I thought you were kidding but just in case it was 'tongue in cheek'..*g*

HUGS

Marilyn: Yep, agree with you on the challenges, I've only ever done one, only because I don't understand the rest..LOL...but like you, I'm learning..

HUGS

JTF: I was waiting for someone to say that, I have noticed that people are curious and when they see a post has a few answers, they're drawn to find out why, either that or it's the humour of a post..

HUSG

Justbleu: Shucks!!! You mean it isn't important?...ROFL

HUGS

Dark Angel: So it wasn't the 'please read' but the humour that caught you or perhaps the possible typo...*g*

well as long as your belly is "little" then you needn't have a complex... IMHO that is...but you could post a peeksure and let us all see just to be sure
*interested in why RGs got a complex about her belly look*

Hey guys....we forgot to talk about the purpose of this post...so:

1) Do you read posts that state in the title, "please read or comment"

2) Do you read because of the author

3) are you reading and posting so that I can beat Michael's "wanna be on top"..ROFL


ooops

HUGS all

I try to read them all......love poetry, but haven't been to brave at replys...especially since I'm such a chicken writer. Lucie says I need to "dive in"....coming from her, I'm not too sure WHAT that means! Ha ha
