If I Reblog someone then THEIR blog article will be looked at instead of mine.
I guess some look at blogging as a competitive thing. Personally, I blog to write and enjoy the company.
First, if you are new to blogging or looking in to blogging as something you want to do, you may want to know what Reblogging is.
Reblogging is when you read the post someone has written and you enjoy it to the point you want to share it with your own readers. If there is a button on the screen that says Reblog then you can click that button and normally type a message in a field that pops up. Then you click enter or send and part or all of the post will appear on your blog with your message at the top to introduce the post to your readers. Some Bloggers even Reblog their own Posts.
Why are the reasons you would ReBlog a Post?
- You really like an article.
- An article inspires you.
- The article is informative for your friends.
- A friend is on vacation and you want their blog and name to continue to be seen in the community.
- You want to help a new blogger by sharing their wonderful work with my friends.
Always do an honest Reblog. If you don’t like it, don’t do it.
Now for how to Reblog properly.
What, I don’t just click Reblog?
You can, but if you really want to do it right you need to take another step.
This is what I do when I see a blog article and realize I am going to Reblog.
I go ahead and pull up my Posts page in the Dashboard.
I click Reblog on the other person’s post and type in something appropriate as to why I am Reblogging the article.
After I have Reblogged, I refresh my Post Page in the Dashboard section and there is the Reblogged Post.
I copy and paste the Tags from the original bloggers page into the Tags on the Reblogged post, click Add, and then click Update.
Why do I do this?
Sure, by Reblogging some of my Friends that are not the other persons Friends will see it but with the Tags included the article will be in the WordPress Reader for people a second time and maybe draw attention.
In all honesty, in the marketing world, sometimes it takes a person seeing something 19 times before they will take true notice of it or do something about it. No, I’m not going to Reblog a post 19 times. But if you see an article you like Reblog it. Maybe other people will do the same and that’s a few more times it gets passed around and those search engines can find them.
This doesn’t take but a minute of your time, and if you truly enjoy something, then do it. You do two things with your blog;1) You have fun with it, and 2) You provide your Friends with the best and most relevant thing for them you can. Sometimes that best is something from someone else.
That’s all for this Blog Tip.
