I’ve been hearing some grumblings recently about people getting narked off with other bloggers asking them for retweets. I have to fess up, I tweet my posts to other bloggers, and sometimes I may even cheekily ask for a retweet. But I also get other people’s posts tweeted at me A LOT and do I retweet when them when they come my way? Sure I do (so long as they don’t get lost in my deluge of notifications). And do I retweet something when I am asked for one? Unless it is some totally spammy content, then again, why not.
In this crazy hectic saturated space that is called blogging, I am quite happy to help out other bloggers who want and need to get their voice heard. As we climb up in our influencer status, surely it’s only karma to give a little hand up to those who are back in the place that we occupied not that long ago?
I am also quite often very happy to be alerted to other blog posts whilst I am manically trying to keep my head above water on my blog ship – I simply don’t have time to know about all those other blog posts happening out there as I’m hitting my publish button.
So I guess the big question is, do we get annoyed with people tweeting us with their blog posts? Do we get annoyed with asking them for a cheeky retweet? Or do we instead just give them a little hand up in this blogging community that we are supposed to be? Personally, I prefer the latter. I’d love to hear your stance on it in a comment below…
