Why in the World Would You Want to Reblog a Post? And How to Do It!

 

There have been many times when I would have missed out on an interesting post or information about a challenge or contest had it blog reblognot been for another member’s reblog.

 

Do you have any idea how many posts scroll through the blogroll in a day? I don’t but I can tell you it’s just about impossible to read each one of them unless that was your job.

Every Sunday I attempt to highlight posts that have made the lightbulb over my head click on. And though I try to read as many as I can, there are still many that I miss.

 

So why Reblog a post?

~It’s a good way of sharing with the other members a post that you feel could use more exposure.

~It’s a nice way to introduce a new member and their post to others.

~It’s really needed to help get information out to members, such as a new contest or challenge for the month, or to help another member who needs assistance.

~And, last but not least you do receive 25 points for a reblog (one per day) and you do receive points for comments made on your reblogged post as well.

 

How to do this?

First of all, you can only reblog a post if:

~The member is a Rainmaker.

~The member gives you permission to do so as indicated by the box they check when they submit and publish their post.

 

Next, scroll down towards the bottom of the post and you’ll see on the same line where you can “like” a post, the ability to reblog it.

 

When you check the “reblog” icon, your screen opens to what looks like the ActiveRain editor. (which it is.)

There is a blank area for you to write an introduction (just as you always do) and if you scroll down even further, you will see the post that you want to reblog.

You will be able to place your reblog in up to 5 Groups (just like any other post) and give it a tag if you want.

Now here you also have a choice enable or disable comments on your reblog/post.

This is your choice. Some choose not to and ask that you comment on the original blogger’s post. And some enable comments as a way of engaging with members (and you do get points for comments made on your post)

 

blogging Now, let’s get back to the introduction. I have seen some reblogs where the member hits the reblog button, and that’s it.

No introduction. Of course, it’s always your choice but to omit some kind of intro would be like taking a new neighbor to a party, walking them to the door, going in with them, then walking away.

 

Look at recent reblogs done by Barbara Todaro, Debbie Reynolds, and Debe Maxwell. You can write one sentence or a short paragraph.

 

In fact, I’ve seen reblogs that were as long as the post itself.

Reblogging is another way of interacting and communicating with other members.

 

If you haven’t reblogged a post, give it a try!

This is a great overview of the reblogging process. I didn't realize you could only reblog material from a rainmaker - I learned something new!

Thanks for a great post on re-blogging.

AR is about getting value added information out to the members as well as the public. There is no way to catch all the posts, so this gives us an opportunity to share some good information that we find valuable.

Thanks

This makes me think of times when we give out our business cards and, like, six months later, someone you don't know from Adam gets in touch with you and new business follows.

The best of digital karma.

'cellent post.

I'm glad to see you promoting this because 1) not everyone here knew about it, 2) all the reasons you mention are great reasons to do it, and 3) I reblog posts that I think are really relevant to the public and/or my own folowers!

Such a great post about re-blogs.  I need to do more of that and help others who have written great posts. This might be my New Years AR Resolution - and that sounds like a great contest idea!
