Sunday Poser # 42

Today my question is about pros and cons of reblogging!

What is your opinion about Reblogging; yes or no?

There are two parts of this question;

1. Reblogging posts from other bloggers.

2. Others reblogging your posts.
My question here is: Are you okay when your posts are reblogged?
And do you feel that the one reblogging/sharing should ask your permission or intimate you beforehand?

The last question is even more important, do you read reblogged posts?

1. Reblogging posts from other bloggers.

Yes, I do reblog posts by other bloggers sometimes, especially if it’s something that I find fascinating or amusing and want to share but I always give credit to the blogger concerned with a link to their original post and do it via the reblog button. I also try to leave an independent comment on that particular post. I might refer to one of their posts as a pingback too if something they have written has inspired me to write a post of my own on the subject.

2. Others reblogging your posts.
My question here is: Are you okay when your posts are reblogged?
And do you feel that the one reblogging/sharing should ask your permission or intimate you beforehand?

I don’t mind as long as I’m given full credit for my work and it is not just a question of reblogging my post for no particular reason, with no input just to appear on someone else’s blog. That is simply just rude IMO.

The last question is even more important, do you read reblogged posts?
I’m looking at this as part 3 of the original question.
I do read some reblogged posts, though others I have already read the original because I follow the blogger concerned.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Thanks Di for sharing your thoughts here. I think most people agree about the courtesy of giving credit too the original blogger and informing them of the share or reblog.

  2. I very often reblog a post that I like and want to share with our readers. I use the reblog button which I believe will link back to the original post. Have I missed doing something else?
