One of my posts was ‘re-blogged’ this week.
That’s never happened to me before in spite of doing this for over six years.
So, I’m wondering just how wide spread this is, what you all think of it and if there are any ‘rules’ about it.
It happened like this….
I’ve been re-posting my old reviews from Ready When You Are., C.B. to this new site at the rate of two or three a week, usually on the slow traffic days Thursday to Saturday. After posting an old review of Peak by Roland Smith, which is a pretty good book by the way, I got an email stating that my post had been re-blogged. Would I ‘approve.’
I checked out the website, which features a large number of reblogged posts, figured I had nothing to lose and pushed ‘approve.’ My review was already on the blog, with links to this site, so I don’t know why my approval was needed.
I experienced a slight bump in traffic afterwards. (Very slight. I was getting upwards of 400 visits a day at Ready When You Are, C.B., but James Reads Books is still in the 15 to 20 visits a day range. More on Sundays.)
But shouldn’t I have been asked about this first? I would have said yes, by the way, but I’m wondering about the etiquette involved.
Do you re-blog?
Have you been re-blogged?
What do you think about it.
I’d love to hear what people have to say.
