On Matthews’Blog we chose to follow many blogging sites. In the process, posts we find interesting in line with our mission are reblogged. Reblogging is our site’s way of promoting the thoughts and ideas of fellow bloggers, among them those we regard as literary giants. A number of blogging sites also follow this blog which we thought is complimentary.
Coming from the media background, we do consider time. Time in this instance is the gap between requesting permission and approval before reblogging. It is the reason we reblog others’ posts many times even without comment. However, our attention has been drawn to the fact that some bloggers are not comfortable with reblogging their posts on this site without formal authorisation. Well every care has bee taken so far to ensure that every information relevant to the originators and their blogs are intact in materials reblogged on this site. What we may not have known on this site is if some of the posts we found interesting should not be promoted on our blog. For that if any, we take responsibility and apologise.
In the light of the foregoing, we thought we should reconsider this site’s reblogging options so that no blogger is given offence nor any protocol breached. We will still read the posts on the sites followed by Matthews’ Blog and hope to duly request permission of bloggers before reblogging henceforth. We thought we should open up on this for the information of those who look forward to seeing their posts on this site always.
