  1. Over from Yvette’s. The Like button is a double-edged sword. I shake my head when I receive notifications that a blogger liked 5 of my posts within 20 seconds. On the other hand, if a person/owner/host doesn’t want to display the Like button, don’t display it. After all, doesn’t WordPress offer the host a choice?

    • They do, Frank. However, (as I and many others have discovered to our horrors) if you remove the ‘like’ button, the reblog button on your blog also disappears. When I approached WordPress about this, they informed me that the two buttons were connected. Get rid of one, and the other disappears. As most bloggers want their blog posts to be shared (via a reblog), keeping the ‘like’ button becomes vital.

        • You are probably exactly right, Carol. It also might have to do with the browser. I like to see the reblog button, but Press works well, too. If they are both missing, you can cut and paste a small part of the person’s post into a new post for yourself, and add a link to their site and “continue” or “read more.” Those are three ways I know to post someone’s post on your site. 🙂 I had to do that with some of Abigail’s Breast Cancer Awareness Posts in October.

          • I removed the reblog button because a couple of people I didn’t know reblogged my posts without asking first. I didn’t want that happening so I took it away. A couple of times people have cut and pasted since then but not often. I think it is a simple courtesy to ask first before taking someone else’s post to put it on your own blog, which I’m sure you do but some people don’t.

          • I guess I’ve never had anything someone wanted to reblog. I don’t remember. You got a pingback or something that told you they reblogged you?


          • That’s weird that you didn’t get a pingback or anything. Did you find out who it was? What did WP say? It’s just out of my experience. Did you get my email?


  2. Thanks so much for sharing my post with your readers, Marsha. Feel free to join in the discussion over on my blog too. Many of the comments already left make interesting reading.


  3. I really don’t know the answer to this one. Sometimes I read a blog and enjoy it but have nothing relevant to add. I suppose I need to exercise my mind more. I been over, read and commented on Hugh’s blog too. 💜

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
