I realized after I wrote about the recent incident where someone plagiarized my blog there was a good deal of confusion about HOW to share it appropriately.
I wanted to clear up the confusion. So here’s how to do it:
- I post every blog set on “public” on my personal Facebook page. You are always welcome to share it like any Facebook post which means it will include my original comments and the link to the blog;
- I post every blog on the public page Heartache and Hope: Life After Losing a Child and it can be shared from there the same way;
- You can click on the LINK to the blog and use any of the social media buttons at the bottom of the blog to share to the social media platform of your choice (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc.);
- If you are a WordPress user, you may reblog any post by clicking that button-you will have the option to add personal comments and then the blog will show up on your site with a link back to my original post.
I also post the blog on several closed bereaved parents’ sites on Facebook.
If that’s where you see it, please click on the link and share from the blog itself to protect the privacy of those sites and the people who belong to them.
A great way to be sure you never miss a post is to sign up to receive blog posts in your email. Just click on the “follow blog via email” button on the right hand side of any blog post.
You get the whole post-not just a link that makes you click through. That’s an easy, fast way to get it every morning without having to get on Facebook. You can forward the email to friends if you like.
Really the only way NOT to share the blog is by copying and pasting the content and then posting it as your own.
I love, love, love when I get feedback from another bereaved parent that says what I’ve written is what they feel or have experienced. Not because I wish this pain on a single soul, but because I know others share my pain and I am thankful that sometimes MY words help them put THEIR feelings into a form they can share with others.
So, if a particular post is helpful to you-please DO SHARE. ❤
