Monday, Wednesday, Friday Question Time

Recently someone asked me why l shared as much as l did and was l not concerned about the state of my blog site? they were referring to the fact that it would be too untidy for them.

Previous to this comment, l had not really given it any thought. I only ever looked upon it as well l enjoyed the content so maybe some of my readership would as well, that it was a community spirit thing. that it was all part and parcel of engagement and interaction, similiar to that of linking to other bloggers, and in some other respects it was a form of community marketing. That it encourages readers to comment to a post they might have missed themselves. i never once thought about it cluttering up my own blog site, and still don’t, however what are your views on the subject?

How do you feel about sharing other bloggers content? Is it something you freely do, or do you consider it an untidy display for your blog?

 

Everyone loves a bit of banter, some discussion, topical talk, well that’s what MWF Question Time is all about.

  1. I must admit at first I didn’t think I would ‘reblog’ stuff. I wanted my blog to be the receptacle of all the weird stuff in my head whether it was in the form of a story or poem or something else. I wanted my blog to be 100% my own creation.

    However, I soon discovered what a wonderful sharing thing blogging can be and I have opened up a lot when it comes to sharing, possibly in no small way due to your excellent example.

    I think I prefer creating a link to a blog rather than reblogging though, but I am not anti reblogging any more.

    I think that it is a fantastic thing you do.

    1. Hey Kristian, admittedly it was something l never even really knew about until WordPress, but l enjoy it.

      When this person suggested l was making my site untidy, it was something that l struggled to see.

      Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚

  2. I reblog occasionally for a variety of reasons. Our blogs represent something different to each of us. Some blog for family, some specialize on one topic, and some treat it as a business with SEO articles and worry about the #s. I blog for the hell of it. My blog is a living breathing thing with a mind of its own. I found that the people who complain about other people’s blogs tend to be the business or specialist bloggers. Neat and tidy world’s like their blog. As long as there is a category or tag navigation on blogs with tons of different types of posts I’m happy. Your blog is as much you as theirs is to them. If you like it, that’s all that matters.

  3. This blogging has me befuddled… etiquette? Are there social norms we should be following? There is a book to write… or has someone?

    I reblog on occasion. When the mood hits… if i read or see a photograph, piece of art, find some resonance in my heart… another blogger has my respect and awe and i share… why not? Neat and tidy? In what world have i ever been neat and tidy? Never… there are like galaxies in my head i have yet to explore… and i still have not managed to edit what i already discovered… but if someone else has my attention… i am going to let them know and reblog!

    Then there is the connection and interaction. I do not want to hurt someone’s feelings… so many rude people. And so many opinions… yikes! Like swimming in shark-infested waters on occasion. I want my blog to be like an enchanting forest on some days… others a rocking night club. Have i pulled that off?

    Thanks for asking btw! ☺️J

      2. πŸ˜‚πŸ€” … regulating my inconsistencies… i see! Not another word would be written by me… or painting painted, music played, quilt created or garden planted…
        not sure that is happening any time soon… not to mention photo taken or dancing legs swung round (i was awarded jean, jean, dancing machine in 5th grade and hula hoop champion in 3rd grade). (Changed my name to Jeanne in 2010…) The teacher had to strip the hula hoop away… she insisted class had to go on. πŸ€£πŸ˜œπŸ˜”

        Yikes! Cant imagine living like that… ever again. Guess i will have to weather my moods… which are happy to be free at the moment.

        Love ya and take care of that back!

  4. I don’t do a lot of reblogging. I think the biggest reason is that I know a lot of the blogs I follow also follow each other, so they’re already seeing the same posts anyway. In terms of tidiness, I do occasionally weed out some older reblogs just to make my list of published posts a little more manageable for my own purposes.

  5. I reblog when I want and bugger what anyone else thinks!
    I’ve had some emails from people telling me my blog is amateur would benefit if I did x, y and z and I thank them politely and file their suggestions in the round filing cabinet!
    I’m very open to constructive criticism and I would like to have a system where I could have everything in my feed as usual but every so often, file stuff under different categories to make it easier to find it again.. I have no clue how to do that though!
    Here’s the thing. It’s Your Blog!! On your blog, you are king. You get to make descisions and big fat hairy doo dahs to anyone who says differently!
    Unless it’s me – then do what you’re told damnit πŸ˜‰
