Something Really Odd I Noticed Lately…
As many of you know my blog really focuses on helping other bloggers get some recognition. In reality my blog is a small hub for bloggers to network and then occasionally I’ll post one of my classic rants or thoughts. As it relates to the networking I noticed something the other day on my Reblog link post.
I only have one rule for the Reblog post and that is to reblog my post if you would like to leave a link. If you leave a link, but do not reblog I will still share your work with others, but I noticed a couple of bloggers the other day “fake” reblogged my post.
I discovered a couple of bloggers last week left a link for me to reblog and were kind enough to reblog my post out to their followers. As is my habit, I thanked them and told them I would add their link to the list. When I returned a couple of days later to reblog their post, I noticed they had deleted the reblog of my post from their page. In essence they reblogged me so it showed up in my notifications, but then deleted it from their page. My thought was they did this to get help from me, but were not actually interested in helping me. It didn’t sit well.
What are your thoughts? How would this sit with you if you were in the same situation? I know it isn’t a huge deal, but it just hit me as incredibly deceptive. Of course I didn’t reblog their page because of their actions. I’ll be curious to know what you good people think.
