Yes I think it is 🙂
I used to give myself 4’s because awarding myself a 5 seemed like so much … hubris … but also sad like giving yourself a gold star. But then I realized that everyone gives everybody a 5 every time they rank anything, so I was actually short-changing myself in my efforts to keep my pathetic vanity at some sort of reasonable level .
But at least I do have some rules about it: some tiny shred of self-esteem must be maintained! Well okay, only one rule. But I stick to it at all costs:
Never be the first one to rank your own post
This allows me to visit other sites, see postings with one ranking (5 of 5 of course) and wallow in a gratuitous pool of moral superiority: I would never do that! I have a rule!
Do not, repeat, DO NOT! go through my site and count the posts that have two rankings (5 of 5 of course). Or at least if you do <shhhh> don’t tell anyone.
I feel better now that I’ve shared 🙂
