Ask an Ambassador- What Is a Reblog and Should I do It?

Reblogs (Resharing a Post) Can Get Lots of Views Too.

RebloggingFirst you have to understand what a reblog is. It is republishing or sharing a post through the ActiveRain network that someone else wrote. They will get attribution and a byline for their post. You can write an introduction about your thoughts on the subject or not. The entire post will be shared in its original format.

Some members do not give permission for their posts to be reblogged. There is a block in your blog settings where you can decide to allow it or not. Activating the setting allows your posts to be reblogged. The post must be a Public post for it to qualify for the reblog feature. Rainers (those not having a Rainmaker account) do not have an option to have their posts reblogged.

Why would someone want to reblog a post? There is so much good content on ActiveRain and many times these good posts are missed or not seen because of the timing of publishing. By reblogging the post, you are helping spread the word about this post and the author. It will come up on your blog and your followers can read it, too. This can get you comments and get comments for the original author. 

If you reblog a post you will earn 25 points. You are only awarded points for one reblog a day but may reblog many posts in one day. They will not get publishing points but may get some comment points each time someone makes a comment.

Others don't reblog any other writer's posts and prefer to write a response or fresh new content. They will sometimes reference the inspiration post or link to the topic post.

Some of the posts I have reblogged have received more views and clicks than many of my original posts. I choose the posts carefully and have to like the message. Another word of caution is to make sure you know the content is original content and the photos in the post are used with permission. You are attaching your name to the post and should be confident the information is used properly.

If you aren't a reblogger that is okay. If you want to be one, then find a good post and click the reblog button that is located at the bottom of the post, before the comment section begins on the right hand side. a window opens for you to write an introduction if you wish then publish it. It will get the post many more looks and the original author will be appreciative, too.

Debbie hello.

Reblog is a good way to share information and provide a second chance to view a post and if missed a first chance to view.

Thank you for this informative post and congratulations on the feature.

Good evening Debbie Reynolds ,

I have to admit I haven't been much into re-blogging although I appreciate catching some posts I would have missed so see the value. Just so many hours in the day and something has to give!! LOL!

I didn't realize that it had to be a public post and you couldn't reblog members only.  

This is great advice: Another word of caution is to make sure you know the content is original content and the photos in the post are used with permission. You are attaching your name to the post and should be confident the information is used properly.

I do re-blog daily. I choose the posts carefully and have to like the message too. I get frustrated when the re-blog is shut off on a great post, but I move on and bless someone else. I look at it as sharing the good stuff with my blog followers.

I am sure you know, Debbie Reynolds - I love to dig out the oldies from archives.....

(And at some point of time - sooner rather than later - this post will be re-blogged, too.)

A good post is always, without except, worth reblogging.

Thanks Debbie.  I never really thought about the term "re-blog", until now.  It's a great to be recognized for a post that hits home with others.

This is great info and especially making sure the content and photos are used correctly. Nothing worse than have your name attached to content or photos and no right to.

Hi Will Allen, Go to your home page and look at the second blog setting tab on the left side. This will open your signature where you can remove your logo that was loaded as a jpeg. Just delete it.

Debbie, interesting comment above. Can't read it, but pretty to look at! Anyway, reblogging is such a compliment to the original author. Gotta love the pat on the back for it! Roy Kelley comes to mind as one who often "pays it forward" by giving certain posts another chance.
