5 Tips for Re-Blogging

.
Number-Five
.
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?
  • What happens when my posts get re-blogged, do I get credit for it?
  • What happens if I re-blog a re-blog?
  • Can I edit a post I’ve re-blogged?
  • Are there any restrictions on who can re-blog posts?

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.

Re-Blogging vs Copyright Infringement

Copyright-Infringement

Re-blogging or Copyright Infringement

.
Savvybookwriters.wordpress.com has had more than 275,000 readers as of last week and I am very grateful for over 1,100 subscribers and comments. The blog articles, tips and links I work on, often for hours or even days, such as this old one, but still THE most popular, got even copied and pasted into other peoples blogs – even so there is a RE-BLOGGING function on all WordPress sites.  It is easy to use: just click on it, write your own comment and have your subscribers get curated content – you save time and you don’t run into possible copyright problems.
.

Re-blogging is considered legitimate sharing when the original source is obvious and available, linking to the original source, comparable to sharing on Facebook, where it includes the link and where only a small portion is shown. Readers can then follow the link to read the full article on the original post. WordPress’ re-blogging also includes an excerpt of the blog post, a link to the original blog post, and it encourages you to add your own comments or an introduction before the re-blogged post.
.

Motto for re-blogging: “Why steal, when you can get it for free?”

WordPress writes: “You can like and 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.
The RE-BLOG button is located in the toolbar that appears at the top of the screen when you’re logged into WordPress.com. Note that you’ll only see the like and re-blog options while you’re looking at individual posts.”
.

Alice Elliott explains in her excellent blog post step for step how it works and shows all the details via computer screen shots. Have a look!

Marcy Kennedy wrote in her article about re-blogging etiquette: “If you’re being re-blogged, it’s an honor that someone found your content worthy of sharing with their followers, and it can extend your reach and bring people back to your site without the effort of guest posting. If you’re the re-blogger, it can sometimes be a lifesaver in terms of getting content up on your site when your week has fallen to pieces. Plus, you’re providing your readers a service through vetting material for them and bringing them the best.”

If done incorrectly, though, re-blogging flirts with the line of plagiarism.  Read more about copyright in other blog posts.

Copyright is a federal law of the United States (and most countries in the world) which protects original works of authorship. A work of authorship includes literary, written, dramatic, artistic, musical and certain other types of works.
.

What happens if you violate someone’s copyright?
Most artists and photographers are too nice to sue, and will simply request that you remove the copied work. However, a copyright owner can sue for damages, as one website discovered. That website paid $4000 in damages for a $10 stock photo they had used without permission, even though they removed the photo promptly after receiving a take-down notice.
