One of the 11 Tips How to Create Web Content Without Writing was re-blogging of other writers blog posts. Another article Re-Blogging vs Copyright Infringement in this blog explains the difference between re-blogging and copy / paste without attribution, which is theft.
WordPress.com set up an informative page, explaining: “You can re-blog posts directly from your Reader, which displays a stream of all the updates published on all the blogs you follow from your WordPress.com account. set up an informative page, explaining: “You can re-blog posts directly from your Reader, which displays a stream of all the updates published on all the blogs you follow from your WordPress.com account.

How does re-blogging work?
You can also use the re-blog button in the toolbar that appears at the top of the screen when you logged into the WordPress.com article. You’ll only see the like and re-blog buttons when you’re looking at individual posts, e.g. https://savvybookwriters.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/11-tips-how-to-create-web-content-without-writing/ – NOT on https://savvybookwriters.wordpress.com
Re-blogging is only available on WordPress.com posts, unfortunately not on Blogger / Blogspot, and not on WordPress.org, at least I haven’t found it so far, despite many searches.
Re-blogging is a quick way to share posts published by other WordPress.com users on your own blog. People have been re-blogging others’ posts since blogging started, but the new re-blogging system enables authors to retain greater control over their content.
When a post is re-blogged, it shows up with a link back to the blog it came from, the first image in the post, an excerpt of the post’s introduction (if it contains text), and thumbnails of any other images that the post contains. It also shows any comments left by the person who re-blogged the post.
What happens when my posts get re-blogged?
An excerpt of your post will be published on the re-blogger’s site (with a link back to your original post), and you will receive a re-blog notification in the post comment. All re-blogs contain a link back to your original post, so the more people re-blog your posts, the more likely it is that you will attract new visitors – and perhaps new followers, too!
What happens if I re-blog a re-blog?
It is better to always re-blog the post from the original source, in order to comment or add something of your own to the post.
Can I edit a post I have re-blogged?
You can go back and edit the comments you left when you re-blogged a post, but you cannot edit any parts of the original post excerpt (including the post title). If you like, you can add categories or tags to the post. Re-blogs show up under Posts -> All Posts in your dashboard, and they can be edited the same way you edit your own posts.
Are there any restrictions on who can re-blog posts?
If you aren’t sure if another blogger would want their post re-blogged on your own site, there’s no harm in asking them for permission first. Please note that re-blogging is not the same as lifting an entire post without attribution. If you’re not comfortable with others being able to re-blog your content, you may want to make your site private, under Privacy Settings. The Privacy Settings control who can and cannot view your blog. You can change your Privacy Settings via your Settings -> Reading page.
