Today when I came home I checked my notifications as I do a couple of times every day and I found one from WordPress informing me that I had 1,337 Likes.
This amused me because it’s such a random number. I thought you only got these for milestones like a hundred, five hundred or a thousand although I don’t remember getting a notification that I’d reached a thousand likes now I think about it.
Anyway it’s all good. Thank you to all those people who liked my pictures or what I wrote. It’s nice to know that someone is reading them. πŸ™‚

  1. Haha, I think this is a joke by the WordPress developers… the number 1337 has a meaning, there is a kind of a hacker- or internet language that is called leetspeak: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet 1337 refers to the word “leet” the name of the language…. the whole thing is basically some kind of an internet alphabet, often used by younger people, to be witty.

    As a gamer I know this kind of stuff, because it’s also often used in the chats of games. It’s funny that WordPress has an achievement that is triggering by 1337 likes. I liked some of your posts today, it could be that the 1337 like was mine, maybe πŸ˜›


    • Well I did not know that. You learn something new everyday. Yes it’s quite possible you were number 1337 as you had been reading my posts around the time I received that notification. Appropriate as you knew what it meant. πŸ™‚
