Yup. Agreed. That said, I think those articles have more to do with social following than content. If a brand new writer with 5 followers wrote the exact same thing, it would not get thousands of little hearts. But when the writer has 50K or 100K followers, it becomes about social following. Everyone else is liking it, so it must be good. Right? At that point, it’s more about subconscious behavior stemming from social proof than pure damn appreciation for being told what time to wake up or what to eat.

And yes, you were supposed to comment. Or at least, I was hoping you would. Bless your heart — lol!! ❤
