Reblogs and linkbacks

This seems to be a touchy subject, but I take the risk.

Jason/OM at HarsHReaLiTy and Danny at Dream big dream often 
says; sharing is caring. They’re right, when we share each other’s posts by linkbacks and reblogs. When we do that we automatically give credit to the author of the post we are referring to with a link or reblog a post and turn of comments and ask people to visit original post to leave comments.

Reblogs and linkbacks are not stealing. Stealing is when you copy a post and don’t give credit to the actual author and claim that the writing is your own work. That’s a huge difference from sharing, caring and giving credit to the right writer.

Why do we get the idea to reblog and use linkbacks?

The caring is an obvious cause. If we want to help each other to get more readers and followers, we reblog posts we find interesting to share with our own readers to give them a chance to find new great blogs. We simply share our readers and followers with our wp friends.

Reblogs can also help your own blog finding new readers. Your reblog shows up in the comments in the original post. Some readers of that blog may think your kindness to reblog is worth a visit at your blog. You also get the attention of the blogger that wrote the post.

The linkback works almost similar. If you write a post and want to refer to a post that inspired your post, you can link back to that post to give your readers a chance to check out your inspiration source.
When you do that, the linkback shows in the comments in the post your link goes to and the blogger gets a notification about your linkback.

When you reblog a post you can be polite and turn off the comments for that post. You can read more about that in this post:

If you do that you show that your reblog is a way of caring and not stealing other writers work. The credit and the comments goes to the writer. You get the likes for your caring. Reblogged posts always have a link back to the original post, so you don’t have to do anything else but to reblog and turn off comments in the post settings.

With linkbacks you can still have your comments on. Then it is your writing in the post and the links to other post is just a way of telling where you got your information or inspiration from. You are the writer and therefore you should have the credit and comments.

So, how do we reblog and put in linkbacks?

This is how I do. If your administrate your blog from browser you might find this way of doing it weird. I often manage my blog from my ipad in wp app. So this is an ipad way of reblog and linkback.

I’ve used Jims post in the examples.

Finding the post in your reader in wp app that you wanna reblog or link to:

Open the post in your browser.

In the end of the post you find a reblog button. If you don’t find a reblog button, the writer has turned off the reblog option. Then you shall not try to reblog in any other way. Respect the author wish not to reblog the post.

When you press the reblog button you get a chance to write something that explains your decision to reblog to your readers. If you don’t want to write anything you just press reblog and leave the writing field empty.

When you reblog a post you can be polite and turn off the comments for that post. You can read more about that in this post:

How to make a linkback:

Press the posts url and copy. Make sure you’re in the full post and not just at the home page of the blog. You can link the blog url address too, but that doesn’t show up in the notifications the same way as a post linkback does.

The chain symbol is the link option. Mark your word or postname you want to put a link behind. Paste the url for the post you want to link to.

Good luck and happy blogging 🙂

What do you do on your national day?

This post is one year old, but I repost it today, because it is the Roma national holiday.

Today I accidentally see that the Roma have national holiday today.
It got me thinking.

Where would you like to celebrate your national day?

Would you like to sit on the ground under blankets with an empty coffee paper cup in his hand?

Cheer for everyone who passes by and hope that some of the human stream stops and empties the pockets of pennies into the coffee mug?

Would you dare to try and make yourselves understood in an unknown language in order to try and sell a magazine or two to passing strangers?

Would you ready to sit outside one of the city’s shops throughout the long days, months, with constant thoughts of the family members, who are trying to hold out at home in the absence of those who traveled far away to seek family’s livelihood?

I’ve thought a lot about our new fellows, who showed up in my town a few years ago. The phenomenon of begging, which we have not had this many hundreds of years.

I still have not figured out what I do, how I should act and what this phenomenon tells us about our time we live in.

But, the other day I came anyway decided that I wanted to buy a magazine of the person almost every day sitting outside the shop I pass close to each day.

I have always greeted cheerfully, just like I do with everyone I meet on my city tour in the afternoon. But on this particular day, I did not just past but stopped and bought a magazine with a very important position content.

A cartoon history of the Roma during the Holocaust. Very strong history. I can recommend you to purchase a copy if you find a retailer. After reading the story, should humanity no longer wish to distinguish between people and people.

Idag fick jag av en händelse se att romerna har nationaldag idag.

Det satte igång tankar.

Var skulle ni vilja fira er nationaldag? 

Skulle ni vilja sitta på marken under filtar med en tom kaffepappersmugg i handen?

Heja på alla som passerar förbi och hoppas att några ur människoströmmen stannar upp och tömmer fickorna på småslantar ner i kaffemuggen?

Skulle ni våga att försöka göra er förstådda på ett okänt språk i syfte att försöka sälja en tidning eller två till förbipasserande främlingar?

Skulle ni klara att sitta utanför en av stadens affärer hela långa dagar, i månader, med ständiga tankar på de familjemedlemmar, som försöker härda ut hemma i frånvaron av de som reste långt bort för att söka familjeförsörjning?

Jag har funderat mycket på våra nya medmänniskor, som dök upp i min stad för något år sedan. Fenomenet tiggeri, som vi inte haft här på många hundratals år. 

Jag har fortfarande inte kommit fram till vad jag tycker, hur jag borde agera och vad detta fenomen säger oss om vår tid vi lever i.

Men, här om dagen kom jag i alla fall fram till att jag ville köpa en tidning av den person, som nästan varje dag sitter utanför affären jag går förbi nära på varje dag. 

Jag har alltid hejat glatt, precis som jag gör med alla jag möter på min stadsvandring på eftermiddagen. Men just den här dagen gick jag inte bara förbi utan stannade och köpte en tidning med mycket angeläget innehåll.

Ett seriealbum om romer under Förintelsen. Mycket stark historia. Jag kan rekommendera er att inhandla ett ex. Efter den historien kan väl ingen människa längre vilja skilja på folk och folk?



Amigurumi artists

If you take a walk in Trosa Sweden along Västra Långgatan this Easter you can see these amigurumis in the windows of a house near by Nilssons Bageri.

This is a co-work with my sisters. We crotchet the dolls and I painted the paintings and artwork.

Education’s Nourishment by Blair Gaulton

A wow poem 🙂

Toutons Tubas and Other Tales

Inspired by Anna’s Art(fargaregardsanna) picture of a an Ash/Ask Tree

Education’s Nourishment
We get education’s nourishment;
when we ask;
because we learn something;
we did not know before.
Starting out like a sapling;
we grow into a big beautiful tree;
because of the things;
that make us curious;
or we want to understand;
help us to see, grow, and develop
like that beautiful tree.

Quiet Impact. Quiet Revolution

This seems to be an interesting book. Read the original post. It has beautiful ending words 🙂

Hello the world!

WP_20150809_17_25_20_ProWritten by Sylvia Loehken, Quiet impact is a handbook for introverts.  As a good book with a little wisdom, Quiet Impact increases readers’ awareness about their strengths and challenges. Consisting of 3 main parts, and 9 chapters, Quiet Impact reveals hidden treasure together with obstacles’ introverts. Simply written, it guides how to have a happy private life and successful professionally. With examples in different occasions, many advice are given, ranging from how to establish and cultivate contacts to how to speak in meetings, in public and in negotiations.
Although it is a book for introverts, extroversion is also highlighted in the book. It is persuasively written with interesting points related to comfort zone, Carl Jung’s theory, as well as Yin &Yang.
Unlike Freud, C.Jung believes that introversion and extroversion can complement each other to broaden outlook and perspective despite of contrasts. One will be able to do things that the other…

Likes to you all :)

WP gives me lots of trouble right now.

1. I can’t upload images from wp app since the latest update and doing it in admin takes ages.
It feels like it takes me all evening to make a new post, so sorry for all reposts. I try to make new posts as often I can.

2. When I visit your blogs through browser the Like button doesn’t upload, so even if I like your posts I can’t show it By liking your posts. To leave a comment also take ages through browser reading.

3. All of you don’t show up in my reader where I can both like and leave comments easier.

4. Your comments in my posts sometimes disappeares or drown in my notification list in the app. I’ve asked wp support if I could turn of notification for likes, so the list more clearly shows comments and reblog notification. The only answer they can give me is to turn off like button in my posts. But I want you to have the opportunity to like my posts.

I know I ‘m wining now, but blogging should be easy, fun and don’t take forever to admin. I hope wp fix things soon in a new update. Until then my activity will be lower than I want to.

Sorry, I miss you all when everything goes too slow on wp.

Oops, didn’t spellcheck this text, so if you can’t understand what I’m writing, it’s me 🙂

11 Types of People to Avoid Like the Plague

I’m so glad none of you wp friends fit in to these descriptions 🙂

Dream Big, Dream Often

I have written in the past about friends and relationships and how we must carefully consider those we allow in our circle. Too often we allow people to creep into our inner-circle that have no business participating in our lives!   When this happens we end up using valuable energy dealing with these individuals.

Be aware to surround yourself with people that are generous, kind, loving and supportive.  This way the majority of your energy can go to building a positive and productive life.

I have listed 11 types of people that you should avoid like the plague:

  1. The Leverager.  There are few things that will kill you inside more than a person that is constantly reminding you of how you have let them down so as to get you to do something for them.  This person is constantly documenting other’s mistakes in order to use those…
