ActiveRain ReBlog Gets A FaceLift - Time To Incorporate It

I came across someone who re-blogged this and found it good to know. I too like the idea of the redesigned re-blog button.

Original content by Brad Andersohn

I'll be the first to admit, I didn't really like the previous ReBlog graphic/icon as I felt it was too big.  It moved my text around making my posts look funny, and it was completely useless for me as the author of my Blog.  The value seemed to only be for the ReBlogger.  I know there are still mixed opinions about "ReBlogging" and the value of it, so like "open houses" I'll let that controversy continue onward and upward, but not here.

You'll notice this morning that the ReBlog icon has in fact changed, and in my opinion, for the better.  I can finally see who has been ReBlogging my posts.  The best part is that now you can also Link to the ReBloggers post to see what they might have said about it, or others that may have commented.  Think of all the comments you've been missing about your post that was ReBlogged! :-O

This is a great new feature and I really like the look of the "NEW" and "Improved" graphic.
(The AR Tech Team redeems themselves)

You can also ReBlog members posts to appear on your Outside ActiveBlogs.  No other Network offers a tool like this, ActiveRain continues to be on the cutting edge of social networking and technology.


If it's green it's clean, but if it's Grey with green dots then you've been REBLOGGED!!  To ReBlog another members post, just click on the ReBlog button.  To view a ReBlogged post and the ReBloggers comments or additions, just click on the green dots below the button.  (Just fyi...You cannot ReBlog your own posts)  To add the ReBlog option to your Blog posts, when creating the post, just put a check mark in the box that says:    then submit post.


IMO - A ReBlogged Post is one of the finest compliments you can give another ActiveRain Member!

I never thought I'd say this, but now I don't mind going back to all my posts and adding the ReBlog option to every single one of them.  Especially now that I can see who has ReBlogged me, and what they had to say.  Now we can follow the chain and threads on our ReBlogged posts, and the new face-lifted graphic won't affect the layout or design of our posts.  I personally like the change and want to thank our guys for listening to the community and for making it happen.  Kudos Gents!!  :-)

If there were one single Blog post on AR that should be Reblogged by every member here, I'd say it's:

this one!

I think blogs, websites or anything on line that fills the monitor's first glimpse or page has to be proportionate sized.  You see sites that were set up by one guy or gal with a vision that are balanced, colored right, corners rounded here and style, simplicity there. And then someone storms thru the door and starts the monkeying, doctoring, messing up the original "look". Why? Because it has been not played with for to do something to make it new and improved or to show the guy behind the shower curtain is alive, seeking to make it better than it was before. New material released that is not always for the better. Don't think I would want to do back to add new reblog to 1200 plus posts though.
