    It is possible to undo a reblog?

    I wanted to reblog only a section of a post, and then add my own comments to it – clearly marked of course, but I found the reblog copied the whole post over which I did not want (and didn’t know it would do)

    I’ve added my own thoughts and comments, but I can not see any way to delete the original reblog linkage.

    Is it possible to undo a reblog or do I simply have to delete that post and start over and link to the original in the more traditional manner?

    Thanks

    I would delete the reblog and simply create a bew post from scratch. In it I would include a brief relevant quote or two, properly attributed and backlinked to the original source, as well as, my own take on the topic.

    thanks timetheif – I shall do that.
    I was hoping that there would be an easy way to undo a reblog though.

    I’m not aware of any undo feature for reblogs, sorry.
