When you reblog a photo blog or photo blog template it places almost all their photos into your reblog. You then have to go back and remove their content or you are now hosting their photos. Even though I remove the comments from reblogs so people have to visit the original to discuss it, this has still posed a problem for me since I started using WordPress.
I’ve been blogging since 2013, started reblogging people in 2015 – now I do it to share the love and share some posts. I don’t want to host your content, like all of us that reblog we are sharing things we find interest in to our own reader list and Reader.
I am going to start deleting the photos connected to the reblog even if it leaves an ugly black box. This will probably decrease the amount I reblog, but I’ve decided against hosting any content “inadvertently” on this blog if I can help it. I’ll keep reblogging though because I know it might bring a smile to someone’s day. Such little effort to spread a little joy… whatever.
Every photo on this blog is mine and I’ll work to remove the photos from the reblogs I’ve done in the past.
Everyday someone discovers my Meet and Greet post! My Meet and Greet is not on a set day like some bloggers host, but is instead an active forum and thread that is always being added to. New bloggers check it out each day and add their sites to the growing list. The comment section is where you can find a multitude of bloggers with a vast variety of blogs! All bloggers are welcome!
How you use this list is up to you! Most people simply leave their info and move on.
I have witnessed some bloggers really network and utilize the Meet and Greet and I am sure they increased their platforms because of it! The choice is up to you!
Who wants to visit New York? I know I do! Unfortunately I’ve never been and it isn’t in my agenda anytime soon!
Fortunately for us we have Trudy from Rendezvous En New York! Her website can be found at http://www.rendezvousennewyork.com/ and her posts are filled with articles and photos on… New York!!! I really enjoy browsing the different events and restaurants she goes to. Her posts are well crafted and fun to read!
I’ve known Trudy on WordPress for some time now and her website is easy to promote. She is a great blogger and runs a great blog you should check out!
I’ve had bloggers ask me this because they are worried that their blogging methods are going to scare people away. They don’t want to respin a post because someone will be annoyed and they don’t want to reblog too much because their email subscribers will get pissed off. If they post photos all the time their poetry readers will be angry and if they don’t forget to do the prompt of the week their writing community will riot. We haven’t even gotten to the virtual dog yet.
That all sounds really tiring. I stopped caring a long time ago if people unsubscribed from my site and it happens constantly. They thought I was a poet or they thought I was a photographer. They were here for a food blog… boohoo.
Well whoever “they” are, they will live. That is what I say. If you try to please everyone all you end up with is a bunch of constrained nothing. If you try to please no one at least you are pleased in the end.
