Why is reblogging so important?

Think of WordPress like a river and from that river come smaller streams that are each individual’s personal “reader.” The Reader is that button in the top left corner that takes you to all the active posts being shared publicly by tag or that you follow.

  3. I think of hearing the greatest story and not being able to share it (happened this morning, amazing writing on MS) — or a great blog and not being able to share it — and I always assume that if someone doesn’t have the reblog button they want to remain anonymous, because me telling someone about a great blog brings new readers…
