Why Reblogging Can Be a Good Thing…

Admittedly, my reblogging of posts has declined over the years. Some just a thoughtmight consider my Sunday Series (What I Learned at ActiveRain This Week) a lot like reblogging and I suppose it is. 

 

But reblogging works on so many levels. Let’s face it, there’s no way any of us can read every post that crawls along the blogroll. 

 

I can’t even begin to count the number of This Month’s Challenge or This Month’s Contest posts I would have missed had someone not reblogged it. 

 

Reblogging is a way of sharing with others what you feel is an interesting or important post for them to read. 

 

Reblogging is also a way of giving some deserved and/or needed attention to a blogger. 

 

Reblogging is a way to introduce us to a new member. 

 

I guess you get points for this but I don’t know nor do I care. But the next time you read a post that you think deserves some attention, scroll down to the bottom of that member’s post and look to the right of the LIKE button. You’ll see the  RE-BLOG.

 

reblogging

 

Hit Re-Blog and all you need to do is write a short comment of introduction to the post. You’ll also have to scroll down and choose what groups to post it in. 

 

It’s also your choice to either allow or disable comments on your reblogged post. Up to you. 

 

NOTE: if the post is Members Only or if the member is not a Rainmaker, you will not be able to reblog the post. However, you could write a post about why you liked it and link it to the original post.  

 

Just a thought on reblogging. If you want to see how it’s done look at Barbara Todaro, Roy Kelley and Sally K. & David L. Hanson

Barbara Todaro it's like a thumbs up on steroids. 

Wayne Martin I try to read many posts each day but often don't have time. Reblogging helps me keep up. 

Myrl Jeffcoat Many have called it reblogging. And, thank you for the feature in your group.

Donald Urschalitz I agree!  So many good posts I would have missed had it not been for reblogs.

Michael Jacobs it's like one big reblog, isn't it?

 Brian England that is so sweet of you to do that!!!

Nina Hollander I think it depends upon the nature of the blog. I've seen some posts that were months and years old but still are worth reblogging.

Reblogging is an excellent option for so many reasons. I would have missed so much if not for finding it in a reblog.

Hi Kathy:

You've shared some excellent points for those who don't know about reblogging, or think about it. I have seen a few bloggers who seem to only reblog rather than sharing original information of their own on their blog. Sort of defeats the purpose, and the benefits, of blogging.

Enjoy your weekend!

Jeff

Good morning Kathy Streib , I don't believe I've reblogged in the past ten years! But I do enjoy the ones that I see, they are usually A+ material.

Good Morning, Kathy. I used to reblog, but I too have fallen behind on not only blogging, but re-blogging. It's certainly a good way to help share and spread information. Go Astros!

Good morning Kathy. I am not much of a re-blogger. I have to really be moved and then be able to explain it. I like your new header background.

I have felt the need to re-blog upon occasion. When I read a post that really speaks to me in a way that makes me want to share it, re-blogging is the way to go.
