Default $11 - 88 on button, makes me wonder about betting impetus

A while back I posted some questions about betting impetus. Well this hand came up, and immediately made me think of it.

Some of you guys may look at this and tell me to raise. The reason I didn't is because a few days ago, I read this thread by Strassa where he said he'd be more inclined to limp because if he gets a set he might get some action, rather than raise and pick up the relatively worthless blinds.

Of course the flop came out like what I expected...nothing great, but it probably missed them. It checked to me, and I made the obligatory bet.

Before I made it, I thought to myself that I had betting impetus by virtue of being the last person to VP$IP. Then I wondered if there are different degrees of impetus, like strong or weak I guess. Had I raised preflop, I'd have more impetus than when I just limp. There's no real reason for anyone to fold a jack there, but they might if I raised.

Hopefully this makes some sense. I realize it's a rather unremarkable hand, but I drew upon two ideas that I read recently, and wanted to examine how they relate.
