I just wanted to see if having the phrase, "please read," actually works. I've seen several posts with that phrase or a variant of it. It kinda bothers me. If people want to read what you've written, they will. I like to think most of us are smart/clever enough to come up with an attention-grabbing title. And even if you're not, just simply say what your topic is. No need to beg us nicely to read it.

Unless of course it really works. Then I'll shut up about it. :)

PLEASE READ! 

 

Is that a meme I hear coming down the tracks!? 

Haha! I hadn't thought of that. :D
That's exactly how I feel about it, and I thought about asking the same question. :)
Glad to know it's not just me!
I think that would be hysterical!! I would have actually laughed out loud, but I'm with my family in the car...
I totally fell for it. Aww yeah.
Maybe this has some merit to it!
It had me,was on twitter at the time = )

It only works if it is in all caps. And abbreviated to the point of stupidity.
