Being A Blogging Neighbor

Blogging Still RulesMany of the graphics I use on my blog come from images searched for on Google. Those images are copyrighted by their sites of origin. I use them in the spirit of non-commercial fair use. My blog is a non-profit, non-revenue generating enterprise.

I do post a lot of original pictures and do so directly on my blog and on Instagram. Those posts are a part of my story and I don’t always want them repeated without permission.

If I post something personal meaning anything related to family I do not give consent to anyone reblogging it for any reason without asking me first. Reblogging is something I do rarely but I think if involves someones private/personal life extra care should be taken. Creating your own work is what blogging is all about and not just re-posting others stuff.

Being a good blogger means being a good neighbor. Be respectful of others work and ask before doing something that might impact ones livelihood. We all blog in community and it’s important to honor the contributions of others.

  1. Well said however I reblog and will do so more often in 2017 to showcase fellow bloggers I enjoy and follow. I don’t like it when people ONLY reblog and have no personal content of their own and I’ve requested that they stop – and they have.

  2. Nicely put. I sometimes reblog fellow horse bloggers posts. Usually these are on horsey topics and not the bloggers personal lives. As they have different perspectives from me in their horse relationships I think that my readers ( those who are horse people in particular)will find the posts interesting. Thanks for posting this good advice Tony.
