Reblogging is the action of (re)posting information that is found on the internet (or other blogs). Almost all blogging tools can be used to maintain a reblog and there are many RSS readers and client side applications that facilitate reblogs. e.g. FeedDemon, an incredible RSS reader in its own right, allows its users to post news items from the client directly into an existing blog. Posting from FeedDemon is addictive and very easy, I know because I used to do it all the time. There are other tools such as Reblog which allows the same thing, but from a web based client. (FYI: the author of Reblog is looking for a WordPress hacker to develop a Reblog Plugin for WP). There are various other methods of reblogging content such as the “Press It” bookmarklet available inside WordPress and the “Blog This” FireFox plugin from Phil Ringnalda for Blogger blogs.

What do you use to Reblog?

    Since I use Blogger, I use the little orange B on the googlebar, both in IE and Firefox.

    In both of those browsers I use news aggregators, Pluck (IE) and Sage (Firefox). Been moving over to Firefox slowly and will stay there as soon as I can update my feedlist.

    This post interested me, because I am thinking about moving from Blogger to WordPress sometime down the line. With that move, comes some changes in how I will be “reblogging” as you say. Hopefully Reblog will have that plugin and that may be the day I switch.

    I’ve been using RSS Bandit which is an open source windows RSS Feed reader. It also hooks into w.bloggar so I can right click a feed and post via it.


  1. Reblogging (made pathologically easy)
    “Reblogging” is yet another scrap on the pile of trendy weblog-related neologisms (cf. “bleg,” “photolog,” “moblog,” etc.), but — unlike most of its siblings — the concept behind “reblogging” probably deserves a name. One who is…
