IF The Militant Negro™ Reblogs Your Post…..

I thought the time is right to inform those bloggers NOT familiar with my blogs mission statement, to issues one. Seems to be some confusion as to why I reblog other bloggers content. So I’ll be brief and then go into much detail.

Me being brief……… Because I want to reblog other bloggers content. And WORSTPRESS agrees with me, it’s a right of other WORSTPRESS clients to reblog.

Me going into detail……… I have learned over the years that The Arts may well be the only thing that keeps humanity from becoming extinct. Our current world leaders are all insane, every last one of them. Planning nuclear annihilation, allowing mass murder by well armed insane civilians, and just being greedy dickheads.

My way to help society and humanity survive the likes of Dumbass Trump and his buddies on Capital Hill, is to support and market all things connected to The Arts. My way of accomplishing this is to share, reblog and Press This of all content by “worthy” WORSTPRESS bloggers. Now oddly enough, WORSTPRESS agrees with me by allowing me to reblog, share and Press This of any bloggers content I choose.

If you happen to be in the minority of bloggers who do not comprehend what share, reblog or Press This actually is or how that all works…pull up a chair, get a cup of flavored coffee or get a drink and come on back…..I’ll attempt to explain, in my own way.

About 5 years ago WORSTPRESS did the only thing, in my opinion, right in the 7 years I have been using their platform to host my blog. Why am I still here if I hate WORSTPRESS so? Because the plethora of bloggers, whom I love and respect, are here at WORSTPRESS and my leaving removes them from my bloggersphere.

Back to the purpose of this post……. WORSTPRESS started allowing bloggers to reblog other bloggers who were a part of the WORSTPRESS community. It was and is a brilliant concept to help blogs get visitors and followers. Brilliant. The idea is if a blogger likes the published content of another fellow blogger, that blogger can share that content of that other blogger. Confused? Don’t be. If YOU like something a WORSTPRESS blog/blogger publishes on his/her blog, you can share it on YOUR blog.

It’s pretty simple. You just click a sharing button found on your blog and the reblogging, sharing is done for you. You don’t have to do a thing but click the “Reblog” button that is on the very blog you use everytime you publish a blog post. Can it be any simpler?

The problems start when a greedy ass blogger who does not ever share, reblog or Press This, sees I have shared his/her work and is not remotely aware how this whole sharing thing works. Some say I need to link back to them. Some say I am stealing their content. Some ask why I reblogged them. Some are downright stupid and want to get into a fight with me over using a WORSTPRESS feature. Then there are those who are just to fuckin greedy to understand that sharing, reblogging and Press This was designed to HELP THEM AND THEIR BLOG.

That last bunch is my favorite.

Unfortunately WORSTPRESS found a way to fuck up this simple share idea by disabling the old Press This button, which was as easy as clicking the Press This button, and making it just plain stupid to use now when/if you click the Press This button. I found a work around to using the Press This button which made that simple button click even more efficient for my blog.

Bottom line, and the cause of this blog post… YES IT TOOK ME THIS LONG TO GET TO MY POINT.

I do not need to add links back to a reblogged post. I don’t have to credit your original blog post. I ain’t gotta mention your greedy ass by name. WORSTPRESS does all that for me when they reblog, share, Press This. So to be totally crystal clear…. WORSTPRESS gives all reblogs, shared, Press This actions the information back to YOUR original blog.

I do so hope this blog post was as clear as Flint Michigan drinking water…… thats a joke.

Now get out of my face with these lame ass bitchin complaints about me reblogging, sharing or using Press This of your blogs content. Good bye and don’t forget to tip your server on the way out.

  1. Best entertainment I’ve read all week! LOL. I seemed to have missed this, and glad to find the ‘reblog’ on my dear friend Tina’s blog. LOL. I loveeeeeee it! Every damn word you said! It’s astounding the amount of people that jump into in activity without having much of a clue about the etiquette of blogging. My friend Hugh Roberts and I seem to collaborate a lot on blog posts about blogging. Thank you for saying it like it is. Oh, and loveeeeeeeeeeeee all the references to the orange cheeto! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. I saw this in my FB newfeed posted by my friend, Carol Taylor. While I know the reason why a blog is being reblogged or Press This or shared (whatever they call it these days because pardon but I am a tech dummy), I opened the link just the same to see/read the “why” of it from your POV. IMAO, any writer or blogger whose work has been shared should consider it as an honor because the simple act of reading and sharing one’s work is genuine effort and show of appreciation. Oh well, let us be compassionate kind sir and extend our patience and tolerance to people who are lacking in those area. Lol! THANKS again for featuring my work.

  3. When you reblogged one of my posts, I was so put out that I had to take to my bed for three days. When I finally had the strength to rejoin the human race, I did not .. alas … I did not have the strength to bitch at you. All that I could manage was a weak thank you. I’ll bitch next time … if there is a next time.

  4. Like the rest of the people who have commented, I am simply grateful for reblogs. Like you, I believe that through the Arts we share a common bond and langage that lasts well beyond any political era and illustrates the common life of humanity. I can look at an ancient cave painting or rock carving and, as I do so, feel the kinship with its creator. I can read an ancient text and know something of the mind of another human being separated from me only by time. I can look at art and words from across the world and know that only distance makes me any different from the person whose hand created it.

  7. I love your candor, my friend! Debby Gies posted today about strangers approaching us for free promotion on our blogs.Like we’re going to spend time putting a feature together for someone who has never visited our blogs and probably never will again after they get what they want. Some people have no couth! I don’t spend any time or energy responding to them, because all energy can be magnetized. But I also hold no ill will. We can put someone out of our homes without putting them out of our hearts. That’s what I love about you. You tell it like it is, while at the time, you’re the first one to step up to the plate with a helping hand ❤

    • My grandparents raised me, from birth, and that was my first blessing in life. My parents, my grandparents, taught me old fashioned morals and standards, taught to them by their parents. When a baby has a basis of strength, love and respect for other humans and animals, it’s hard for that human to become hard, evil and uncaring. There are not many of us on this planet who were “raised right’ and that upbringing stuck. I may not like most humans but I could not turn away from anyone or anything in need. Thats my grandparents fault. 🌹🧢🥂🍸🍹🍻🍷😎💞 You and your loved ones and family please enjoy a safe and happy Holiday Season, Ms. Tina. Ciao Bella Mon Amie.

  11. Reblogging is a gift, I agree. I have only had few, especially beginner bloggers, who can’t find out, how to reblog in a good way. Like few days ago, I visited a blogger, who commented at my blog and found a photo from my blog and a link down to a totally other content at my blog. Then I contacted and asked to be contacted, if they needed help with reblogging, because this was not a help. It was directly copying a photo and a link from another post to another item in another of my shops.
    Otherwise it is kind to reblog others post.

    • Yes, new bloggers need help sometimes in learning how to host a blog. I remember back in 2011 when I was a new blogger, I had to do everything by trial and error, mostly error. Now day, there are bloggers, and blog post and youtube videos on how to be a successful blogger. Thank you Ms. Irene for understanding that the concept of sharing/reblogging, is to help out blog community, not hinder us.

    • There was a person who reblogged from my blog and thought it wasn’t working properly because there was nothing in the text box on her admin side. So, she copied and pasted the post, then added in her own opinions and some videos giving the impression that it was original material from my blog.

      She didn’t understand that WordPress setup reblogging so that rebloggers can’t change the content of the original.

      • Thats the issue with the average blogger who complains about links or credit back to their blogs, when I reblog, or use Press This…..if said bitchin blogger has never reblogged or used Press This, they have not a clue how WORSTPRESS has it set up to automatically link back to their blogs. IT’S AUTOMATIC PEOPLE.

  13. I’ve met some fantastic bloggers because of reblogs. You might remember that I and another blogger bumped heads because she wanted me to complain to WordPress about your reblogging, which she called “stealing”. The more I explained to her that WordPress allows reblogs, the more she repeated “stealing” like it was a mantra.

    Then I began paying close attention to her posts and discovered that everything is a copy and paste from elsewhere without any attribution whatsoever. It was somewhat of an AH-HA moment because I suspect she didn’t want her plagiarism exposed.

  14. Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet and commented:
    If you blog to have eyeballs read what you have posted then you should know that reblogging, sharing, Press This and pingbacks provided by WordPress are a positive means to get more people to read what you posted, like what you posted and hopefully like what you have done enough to follow your blog.

    If someone reblogs one of your posts you should consider it a compliment and a gift. Someone is trusting your work and words enough to share it with their followers. That my friends is an honor! It’s word of mouth promotion of your work that you didn’t have to pay for.

    To any and all who have honored my works and me with a reblog, share, pingback or Press this I want to offer my sincere thanks for sharing it with your followers. And to the one person who has done the most for me I want to offer my deepest thanks and appreciation for all the reblogs and consistent support of my blog – Mr. Militant Negro!!! And hope you have the privilege of him reblogging one of your works. I have met many of my followers from reading reblogs of their works by Mr. Militant Negro!! Be gracious and say thanks!

  15. I feel honoured when you or others reblog my post, Mr. Militant.
    There was some guy whose blog used a posh English-sounding name and he would reblog my posts, then delete them. The whole ideas was to get me to visit his site to see the reblog. I finally started asking him to give me a link to the posts, and he couldn’t. That was plain nasty.
