Rarely do I get perturbed by emails. I always try to be appreciative unless the emailer steps over the line and is over-critical or is offering me unsolicited advice-unsolicited advice might be one of my biggest pet-peeves by the way.
The other day I received an email from someone asking me “why do you reblog so damn much?” At first I thought why does it matter to this person how many times per day I hit the reblog button? But then I figured I would truly explain the reasoning behind my reblogging. As many of you know I have always used reblogging as a way to help other bloggers gain more exposure. It is my way to help grow the community of bloggers and help others connect. The funny thing is I don’t think I reblog that much. Maybe I do and just don’t realize it?!
I don’t consider reblogging another’s post to be selfless in the same light as I don’t consider those who do not reblog to be selfish. Honestly, I’m not sure what the big hangup is regarding reblogging. I have been at this game for nearly 2 years (Thanksgiving will be my 2 year blogisversary) and sharing other’s work has always been a point of contention with most bloggers.
