    Hi Shawn, I was going to reblog this to my blog, but I don’t see a reblog button. It’s usually in front of the like button. Phyllis

    • Hey, Phyllis, it’s one of those quirks with a self hosted site. 🙂 Check out the following blog and it’ll show you how to re-blog from this site or any site without a re-blog button:

        Good to know, thanks.

      • MythRider says:

        Okay. I tried it. I followed all the instructions, I highlighted, I clicked, I right clicked, but I’m not getting it. This is taking too long and I have stuff to do. I need to set down with someone to help figure this out. I’ll get back to you on it.

        • Hey Phyllis, I just checked out Chris’ blog to see what was up. He has a site (mine’s self-hosted). The difference is that a self-hosted site has a little more freedom in some ways, but there are a couple things like the re-blog/sharing options that are lost. I did find one more way to do it, though. If you view my site through the reader (instead of the full site), you can do it without the press this button. Here’s what you do: go into the reader, search for my site (self publishing on a budget–should show up top of the list on the right hand side of the screen). Click on my site, scroll down to the blog you want to reblog and you can either click on the sharing button with that blog summary or go into it and click on the sharing button. When I click on it, I get three options: Facebook, Twitter and the option to reblog it to my site.
          Hope that helps! Let me know if it does.
          If you’re reblogging a lot, the Press This option (in the blog I pointed out to you) is the way to go (if you can get it all figured out) as you can reblog pretty much anything.

    […] “As I’ve been blogging on the topic of Self-Publishing, I’ve had the privilege of rubbing digital shoulders with a few editors and I thought it would be helpful for self-publishers to read a little bit from an editor’s perspective.” I can see short stories being a big thing in the future. That’s why I’m trying to write some. I started with short stories a long time ago. […]
