Update on disappearance of the Reblog option on Reader

For those wondering, what the heck happened to the reader, our good friend George, over at georgeforfun has been doing a bit of investigating. Not good news by all accounts – especially for the reblog button. RIP reader reblog button. You will be missed. 😥

It’s not something we selected or didn’t select. According to a chat conversation with a nice guru from WP named Drew, we have lost the reblog option on our Readers because they had received negative comments on it.
So much for making blogging and rebloggin/sharing easier.
Apparently it will never come back.

I wasted time expressing myself, so if it seems like I’m not as active as I have been in the past, it’s that it takes twice as much time now to read and reblog/comment as it did before and I am sorry for that. I will try my best to keep up, but time restrictions will prevent that from happening.

About Running Elk

My given native name, Running Elk, was bestowed in 2008 as I took my first steps as a fully fledged Medicine Man of the Zuni tradition.

  2. The font color is also way too light. I can barely read the posts or comments. Horrible changes.
