In looking at old post and re-spinning them, I have had a look at this one. First off I was shocked at the number of mistakes, even the title was wrong it was supposed to read to re-blog or not re-blog but for some reason I put to blog or not blog. However, it did create a very interesting discussion subsequently I have changed my view and added an extra bit at the bottom!
Just to be very clear I’m not taking a pop at blogs that re-post other people’s work, I follow a couple of those and they are very useful way of finding new blogs. My blog isn’t that type of blog I wanted it to be a platform for me to practice my writing. So far I’m very happy with how it is going.
I’m very unsure whether to re-blog other people’s posts. I have done a few that were so amazing, funny or useful that I just had too. I’m worried if I re-blog too many my blog will lose its identity. I feel a bit of a hypocrite I was over the moon when one of my posts was re-blogged by 5 people and it definitely helped me get more followers. Should I regularly re-blog post to help my fellow bloggers out? I would still only re-blog posts I thought are good but there a lot of those and my own posts could get swapped. Should I stick to just roughly once a month?
Since writing this I have re-blogged several different articles I tend to do one or two a month and on a Friday. I also started sharing anything I like on twitter, that was an idea I picked up from one of the interesting comments made after I posted the original.
