Do you prefer someone share your work with a reblog or a pingback? Do you want people to share your posts at all?
People sometimes create accounts, write posts, even make tags, press publish and never realize people might read their words. And then share them! I know… Gary is crazy.
When I share a post I try to pay the ultimate compliment to the author by pressing reblog, disabling comments, and making a reference to the post in the way of a comment. I never leave a reblog blank because I want to show I at least read the last line of your post that said Opinionated Man is such an asshole. My reblog is a guidepost to your blog basically.
I don’t pingback and share a post by writing about it and linking it… anymore. People get prickly over that and really feel like you are binding them to the entire subject of that post. You might want to remember that. I’ve had the bad end of sharing by having people get angry at my reblogs and asking that I take it down. I do because the sharing for me isn’t about the post, it is your post, it is about me reading something and liking it enough to comment. When I comment I generally reblog as the comment because I’m busy and that’s that.
So do you prefer a reblog or a pingback?
I like scotch.
