Do you believe in free choice?

  1. I'm not sure if this is the place for this, and if it's not - I'm sorry.
    I just wanted to hear a little about the WP's community's opinion concerning free choice, and publish my blog and my post about free choice along the way. Free choice is not actually the main theme of my blog, in which I write about all sorts of philosophical ideas (through stories/regular posts).

    I wasn't sure where discussions were supposed to be, so for now, let's say this is the showcase for my blog ^^
    If someone could tell me if there is a place to discuss with other wordpresses (in these forums) about philosophy, I would appreciate it.

  2. The post I published - http://dewnestry.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/free-choice/
    I forgot it XD

  3. Oh, I'm really sorry, I gave the wrong adress ><

    the showcase is where you show off your blog post's,

  5. And this is what I did. I wanted to have a discussion as well, but I understand this isn't the place for it... If you know what is, I'd appreaciate if you told me :o

    About your blog post:
    IMO the concept of "free choice" is based on the erroneous notion that all people are the same, are born into the same kinds of families and social-economic conditions, have equal access to education, experience identical events in their lives, etc. I'm sure that's enough for you to see what I am pointing to. Our freedom of choice is constrained by many factors.

    We can discuss specific posts being promoted here in the Showcase Forum threads promoting them but do be aware that entering into lengthy discussion here but those who post comments into these promotional threads do not always click into the blog post being promoted and making great comments on the post.

    We can also post Discussion threads into the Off-Topic forum but take note that posting threads that are is presence or in fact duplicates to both forums will result in one of the threads being closed or deleted. That behavior is considered to be excessive promotion just as posting duplicates in the Showcase Forum would be excessive promotion. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/off-topic

    IMO it would be super cool if WordPress.com were able to redesign this Showcase Forum so all we could do is post a brief promo of our post and a link, and there was no capacity to comment on our threads. That way those who were interested in discussion would click into the posts and commenting could take place on our blogs where it counts rather than here.

  7. Thank you ^^
    Thanks for reading the post!

  8. I apologize for the confusing paragraph I posted above below the blockquote. I'm visually challenged and I have edited it.

    We can discuss specific posts being promoted here in the Showcase Forum threads promoting them, but do be aware that entering into lengthy discussion here may not be as productive in terms of blog promotion as you think. Those who post comments into these promotional threads and into Off-Topic forum threads do not always click into the blog post being promoted and making great comments on the post.

    It's a fact that the vast and overwhelming majority of the millions of WordPress.com bloggers do not post to the Showcase or Off-Topic Forums at all. There are regulars who post frequently and a few newcomers posting every day but that's all.

    It's in your best interest to seek out blogs that interest you, visit, comment and form relationships with bloggers by entering discussions on their blogs. See here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/07/13/wordpress-com-in-house-blog-promotion/
