The idea of Re-blogging
is as a method for re-signalling a blog by yourself or others.
The definition for
re-blogging as defined by the site its self:
It goes something like
Reblogging will allow you
to share things on Tumblr a lot quicker than you would be able to manually. If
you re-blog then it will make a copy of the blog just written or sent and will
also allow you to add in your own comment.
In my opinion it is very
similar to re-tweeting. You are able to add your comment so that if for example
you really agree or disagree with the blog, then you can say so.
When a Tumblr post reader
makes a comment upon the post or a comment about a comment, then it comes up as
a “note”. These comments are sometimes called answers, and if you click on one
of these “note” links then you will be able to see all the comments. As I
understand it, there is no way to re-blog all of the comments and extra bits,
and at this time of writing, I believe you can only re-blog the original post.
Firstly you must connect
the blog with your account. Open up your web browser and go to the Tumblr website.
Pop in your email address and enter your password etc, and log in.
Now go to the blog on
Tumblr and the comments within, etc.
All you need to do it
click the “re-blog” button that was recently added to the Tumblr site. The
Tumblr site will open up the post in an editor, with the open and a space to
type your comment.
Type in the message that
you wish to add.
Click on the “post
re-blog” button that should have a green check marked icon right below the
editor tool. The blog will be re-blogged along with your message.
back and think a while
The process did used to
be a little more convoluted, and you are still able to do it the “old
fashioned” way, but with Tumblrs inclusion of the new button, there seems
little point in doing it the old way. As to whether it can be re-blogged with
all the comments attached is still unknown by me, but we cannot rule it out,
that if it cannot be done at the moment, that it may come to pass in the
