Why are so many Active Rain Members Confused about Reblogging ?

By

     One of the unique features of Active Rain is Reblogging . The ability to add all ready written

quality CONTENT to your own Blog (and therefore to your READERSHIP). When new members

are first introduced to it, they must rid themselves of all of the baggage of the past. In Active Rain,

Reblogging is not Plagiarism ! Our AR Culture views Reblogging as a complement to the author of

the post. AR Culture believes that we are assisting the original author by exposing their work to 

additional/new Readership. AR Culture also believes that sometimes you discover an AR post that

you totally agree with . That you couldn't have said it any better than the author and therefore

there is no need to reinvent the wheel. You want to bring this information to your Readership by

adding this post to your own Blog.

     If you are still in doubt consider the following :

       1. Most AR posts have the REBLOG Tab visibly on them 

       2. AR rewards it's Members with 25 points for Reblogging

       3. A reblog counts in YOUR blog totals

     You therefore do not have to obtain the authors permission to reblog , simply use the system

that all ready is in place ! (no other rules or steps are necessary !). Finally there is a remaining step

of Active Rain Culture to perform. It is recommended in the required Introduction of a Reblog, that

the reblogger acknowledge (thank) the author for their efforts . A classy move by AR ! How about a

2016 goal of adding 1 Reblog a day  to your Blog  ?

Good Morning Michael - as Richie Alan Naggar says it is an electronic pat on the back.  Re blogging is a wonderful way to amplify a post  that you agree with.

Big fan of the reBlog for when time doesn't allow someone to create an entire post themselves.

Great advice.

I often re-blog posts, and find that the AR community really appreciates it, as I often hear 'Thank you for rebloging I missed the original post'.

I did not know that reblog counts in your totals, and rebogging just for points does not seem right.

Good morning Michael J. Perry,

I caught your post when Robert (Alaska Bob) Swetz reblogged it. Good article and way to get the word out and I for one appreciate them as I can't possibly read all posts that are posted!

Michael, great shout out for the reblog.

Of course, other types of not original posting is not kosher, whether you are taking the information from another real estate site or a local or federal government site. Cutting and pasting and publishing it as your own is not cool - although we are seeing a lot of it these days.

   The worst offenders are AR bloggers who cut and paste / plagiarize an entire article from a website like Inman News or Better Homes and Gardens... then they disable the reblog button on "their" blog.
