The Blog Post Share Project – Share the Love

I was thinking yesterday, I’m usually giving blog posts I like a comment and a like. I get plenty of those myself on this blog. But there are other ways to show your appreciation to blogs and bloggers.

So, how about this? Whenever you see a blog post you like, don’t just like it. Leave a comment if there’s something you want to say, of course. But why not use social media to help get the word out to others about that post? At the bottom of each post in a blog, there should be buttons you can click on for various social media. Twitter is great, if you use it. Why not pin it on Pinterest? Or how about share it with your friends on Facebook? Or even Google+? If you think the post is really, really good, you could even share it on Reddit.

So, this is what I’m going to do from now on. When I read a blog post I think should be shared with everyone, I will not only like and comment, but I will share on social media. Who’s with me on this idea? Let’s share our love for great blog posts!

And while you’re at it, share this post on social media.

  1. Thanks, Jay Dee, for pointing this out. While I do share sometimes, I can certainly do more. I tend to either re-blog on WordPress or share on twitter and Facebook, which are platforms I use. I am not very adept with all the forms of social media, though. For example, I don’t really know what Reddit is.

    1. Reddit is more of a place where people share things that they find, have discussions, and so on. It can range from funny things, bizarre things, and even famous people can go on there to have a live chat/interview with users.

  2. Glad you brought this up. I’ve actually done this with a few posts that stood out to me, shared them on Tumblr and Reddit. I’ve learned that Reddit is great for exposure! It’s a great way to show others that you really appreciate their work and gives them the ability to share it with those that would otherwise never see it.

    1. Yeah, I’ve found that Reddit can either expose someone’s work, or it may get buried under many others. I’ve used Reddit very little, though. I keep thinking I should participate more, especially in areas under science fiction and fantasy writing.
