The New Like/ReBlog Feature and getting to my old posts...???

  1. I like the new Like/ReBlog feature....but I have thousands of posts it's a pain after a few days clicking back in my old posts pages one-by-one....is there some other way to quickly go back through my old posts so that I may find the old posts that I like so that I can ReBlog them.?????

    There must be a better way than I'm doing it!

    Thanks!!!!!

    The blog I need help with is gunnyg.wordpress.com.

  2. BTW, my blog is....

    http://www.GunnyG.wordpress.com

  3. There is no why to "bulk" like one's own posts or another blogger's posts. In fact I'm confused about why you would "like" your own old posts and reblog them. Why not simply edit them and update the the content in them withnew information?

  4. I would update the post and probably might change the publish date. Else old stuff should stay at the end in my case.

  5. @phoxis
    I don't chnage dates of publication ever so the URLs aren't changed and I don't get 404's. I edit posts and update with new information when it becomes available. That being said "liking" one's own posts runs against my grain, and the notion of reblogging my own posts and doubling the posts count without providing a shred of new information is alien to me.

  6. Actually, my question was about an easier way to go back to all my old posts...not "why" I would want to do so...therefore, the following will explain that...

    I'm fully aware of the announcement of these features and how they work. That site linked to your wordpress.com name isn't NOT a wordpress.COM blog. Exactly which blog are you referring to? Please post the URL for the blog in question starting with http:// Then please clarify exactly what it is that you want help with.

  8. Question:
    Is there an easier way for me to go back through my entire blog and "like" and "reblog" my own posts?

    Answer:
    Not that I know of.

  9. Reblogging every post that's already on your blog sounds like a spammy operation that could well endanger your blog. I've seen staff suspend blogs for less. My advice is not to do it (There is no bigger hit whore than me, but it's plain crazy to indulge in re-posting excerpts from every single old post when it could mean the death of your blog).

  10. @timethief : changing the post time is really bad, and i have not done that ever till now, because the cause you have mentioned. Better to keep it updated with an update note.

  11. @phoxis
    That's what I do. I edit and then insert the new date like this and new information :
    Updated June 10, 2010 (in red font)
    New information: blah, blah, blah

  12. Why create new content when you can “like” your own posts and reblog them all? Why not request an expansion of the like and reblog featrure so you can like and reblog all your own posts in bulk? That way you can create duplicate content and hope Google doesn't penalize you for doing so.

    ... In the rare cases in which Google perceives that duplicate content may be shown with intent to manipulate our rankings and deceive our users, we'll also make appropriate adjustments in the indexing and ranking of the sites involved. As a result, the ranking of the site may suffer, or the site might be removed entirely from the Google index, in which case it will no longer appear in search results. ... http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=66359 <.blockquote>

  13. No, I never had any attention of reblogging all my posts; only selected few in accordance with the intent of wordpress.com

    as outlined in....

    Please disregard my question regarding review of posts.

  14. Want to highlight a post? Try making it a sticky instead.

    And stop waving that link in front of our faces: we know what the announcement says. It's you that seems not to know: the feature is meant for showing your readers a post from someone else's blog, not your own.

  17. Perhaps a passing moderator could remove that link?

  18. @raincoaster
    Actually that might be a good idea. Perhaps if that links which was posted twice is not removed by a Moderator then some members may be tempted to post links to their posts in response to the introduction to the "like" and "reblog" features.

  19. You can create a list of your old blog posts using wordpress reblogs.
    How to use the wp.com “Like and reblog” button to create an eye-catching list of your old blog posts

  20. Or you can try Archives Shortcode to create an "all posts" lists. The list updates automatically every time you post something new.
