Recently someone asked me how I decide what posts, or whose posts I choose to re-blog. Also, how do I decide which posts to link to using the Zemanta service on WordPress I figured if one person had the questions, maybe more of you did as well. So I shall answer them. Are you ready for some hard hitting truthiness?
How do I decide which posts to re-blog? Simple. I re-blog posts that I feel are good. Or broach a subject that I have been thinking about and haven’t found the words to express it properly. Still others are a useful tool, or describe a process for those of us who may be struggling in that area. Some of these posts are so good it would do the world a disservice to not re-blog them. Nothing more than that. Papi like-y, Papi share-y.
How about the links at the end of your posts? How do you pick those? Once I found out about Zemanta and activated it, I simply tried to pick other WordPress blogs to add onto the end. If I can avoid it I do not link to other sites other than fellow WordPress bloggers. I felt it was the courteous thing to do, especially if their content was similar or related to what I was trying to explain in my posting. Since coming over to WordPress I have found our community to be so inviting, helpful and friendly that it just feels right to share and share alike.
I have also learned some new things in recent days. It is not enough to link to another WordPressers blog, it is also courteous to visit and like or comment on the post you linked to. Which now that I think of it, is kind of common sense, but I never thought of it.
With the hectic Holiday season I have been a very bad blog friend and not visited all of you as much as I should. I did try to rectify the reciprocal follow back though today. I hope I got to everyone. A number of very fine blogs that have found me, and now I have found them back. I have said it before and I shall say it again, I am very impressed with the overall quality of the blogs I find on WordPress, and with the WordPress community in general. A friendly and helpful group to be sure. Hopefully I have answered any questions regarding re-blogs or my selections of posts at the end. Thank you for stopping by.
