How Reblogging Works

Reblogging is a quick way to share posts published by other users on your own blog. People have been reblogging others’ posts since blogging started, but our new reblogging system enables authors to retain greater control over their content. To reblog a post, push the Reblog button at the bottom of a post directly on the site. You’ll then have the option to choose which site of yours you want to reblog to before confirming.

When a post is reblogged, it shows up with a link back to the blog it came from, the reblogger’s commentary highlighted, and an excerpt of the post’s text and media. It also shows any comments left by the person who reblogged the post:

Reblogs published on blogs you follow will also appear in your Reader:

You can also click the Share button from the Reader. This will open the post editor on your site so you can make changes before publishing! The post you’re sharing will receive a pingback from a link back to the original site.

Click the “Share” button in the Reader to reblog a post from the Reader.

The Reblog button only shows to users who are logged in at Additionally, the reblog is removed if your site is on our Business plan with plugins installed. Those sites can use this plugin as a workaround.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get credit when someone else reblogs one of my posts?

Absolutely! All reblogs contain a link back to your original post, so the more people reblog your posts, the more likely it is that you’ll attract new visitors (and perhaps new followers, too!).

What happens if I reblog a reblog?

If, for example, Stephane reblogs a news announcement on his site and Lori reblogs Stephane’s reblog, Lori only re-publishes Stephane’s comment. If Lori wants to share the original announcement, she should reblog the post from, not from Stephane’s reblog. But if Stephane leaves a really clever comment, Lori might want to share it on her own site by reblogging his reblog.

Can I edit a post I’ve reblogged?

You can go back and edit the comments you left when you reblogged a post, but you cannot edit any parts of the original post excerpt (including the post title). If you like, you can add categories or tags to the post. Reblogs show up under My Site → Blog Posts in your dashboard, and they can be edited the same way you edit your own posts.

Are there any restrictions on who can reblog posts?

Reblogging is designed to give all users an easy way to share great posts they find on their own sites. If your content is reblogged on a site you find objectionable, you can ask the blogger to remove it, either by leaving a comment or through their contact form if one is available. Likewise, if you aren’t sure if another blogger would want their post reblogged on your own site, there’s no harm in asking them for permission first. Please note, though, that reblogging is not the same as lifting an entire post without attribution, and so will not remove reblogged posts under the DMCA. If you’re not comfortable with others being able to reblog your content, you may want to make your site private.

Keep in mind also that the reblog button isn’t currently available for sites on the Business plan with a custom theme or plugin added. However in this case, reblogging can still be accomplished within the Reader.

How many times can I reblog a post?

You can only reblog the same post once per user. If you’d like to show an older post again to your readers, consider setting it as a Sticky post.

Is there any way I can disable the reblog option?

Yes, if you decide you would rather not offer the option to reblog your post, you can disable the button by navigating to My Sites → Tools → Marketing → Sharing Buttons.
Disable Show reblog button under Reblog & Like and the Reblog button will no longer appear on your blog posts. Likewise, if you later decide you would like to offer users the option to reblog your content, you can enable the feature.
