I’ll Tell You What I Want, What I Really Really Want #WordPress @wordpress

I was planning on rebloging some of my older posts in November while I concentrate on NaNoWriMo and need to minimize my time on WP.

But I may ditch that idea since I’ve realized that it’s not possible to “schedule a reblog” for a future date on WordPress.

Whaaaaaat?

If I reblog an old post now and just change the posting date to one in November, it will show up and then disappear on my other accounts.

I don’t want that.

And if I take an older post and modify it with a future posting date, all of the other posts I may have pinged back to will become broken for me and for those who have reblogged my work.

I don’t want that either.

The “Press This” function is an option but I usually reserve it for sharing “non-WP” blogs, news items and videos from Youtube.

I know, I know, First World Problems…stop complaining.

But still, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want from WordPress is a “future reblog” function.

Is that unreasonable to ask the #HappinessEngineers @Wordpress?

Maybe I’ll just change my entire approach to my November WP gameplan.

But if you see posts appear and then disappear over the next few weeks, it’s probably because I’m organizing my November 2016 schedule! πŸ™‚

Would YOU like a “reblog” function that could be scheduled?

    • I could but if I copy the content into a new post, any new “likes” would not be added. I may simply do what I did last week…new post, insert old link and disable comments. First World problems…πŸ™„πŸ’•

  1. Oooo I saw the title of this post and instantly started singing Spice Girls! YES!

    I think I might have a solution. WHAT IF you start a new post, and format it just like a reblog? Write a little ditty at the top, and then just copy and paste maybe the first paragraph of that old post into a “quote block” THEN at the end, embed the link into the words “read more here” and then it will take everyone back to the original post?

    Then since it’s a new post, you can schedule it, but you’re not copying out the entire old post, it will look almost identical to a reblog?

  2. I republished some of my old posts by writing a brief intro, acknowledging that they were previous posts, and copying the old blog into the new one. I left the old one as is, and even titled the two the same. Apparently Google doesn’t like that and that post, old and new, may be less likely to show up in a Google search. You could update the old post, even if it’s just a sentence or two and new pictures. That might make Google happy(ier). If you care about that.

Great blogs thrive because of comments and readership. I'd love to hear from you!
