Spotlight: Mimi @ Life Is The Best Coach – February 2020

People often ask me why I do not reblog content from other bloggers. The answer is simple. Since this is my blog, I prefer to keep my content original. However, there is more to it. I never knew how I would make those reblogs fair. The last thing I want to do is offend someone by not reblogging their content.

It was never because I felt scared to promote my fellow bloggers. In fact, I consistently shared links to some of my favorite authors as I nominated them in my ‘Awards’ posts. Last year, I went a step further and shared a link to the person who was most engaging in the comment section every month. (You can find all those posts from the top Menu under ‘Awards.’)

This year, however, I decided to take the plunge and start reblogging other people’s content. While there were hard metrics implemented for the Brain Stormer Award, there are none for the Spotlight. It is all very subjective. The only rule – you must have posted something in that month.

So go ahead and post something. I might feature one of your posts on my site at the end of March!

Do you ever struggle with self-discipline? Mimi has all the answers. Below is the excerpt from one of her blog posts and a link to the entire post on her site.

We aren’t born with self-discipline. This is a skill we acquire through daily practice and repetition. It seems like an extraordinarily difficult aptitude, but as a matter of fact, it’s simpler than you think.

Are you a disciplined person? If you asked me this question some time ago I would definitely answer no. I always imagined the discipline as being mercilessly consistent with a decision taken. With a goal to be accomplished. With a dream to come true. I imagined a person who never gives up. Who always stands up. Who’s strong, resistant and relentless. I’m not such a person. I’m too much far from it. That is why the concept of getting self-discipline always sounded unachievable for me.

Please take a look around Mimi’s blog and see if there is anything else that might be helpful on your life’s journey. Do not forget to tell her ‘Hi!’ from me.

Stay golden,

  1. That’s a great idea. In fact, you have given a solution to one of the problems I was facing on the community I am trying to build. You were right, the decision of the Blogger of the Month title would become really hectic after a couple of months. Thanks Goldie!

  2. It is up to you what you put on your blog and no obligation to share. I occasionally share as I feel it is important to do so in trying to get messages across or an exceptional piece of writing if I shared every post I would lose the importance of what I am writing about. People would start to wonder if I have lost myself in just doing random shares. Bless you “Goldie” love your posts

    1. There used to be a time when reblogging was very popular. Everyone hoped to become famous that way. Those who reblogged – for being giving exposure, and those reblogged – for getting exposure. It didn’t take long to see that the results weren’t guaranteed/stable. This trend has died down recently. Unless I just stopped following those who reblog every day a million times a day.

      We all have our reasoning for what we do, I guess.

      Thanks, Mare and Jase. Stay golden!

  3. I think it’s absolutely generous that you do this.
    Today someone reblogged 4 posts of mine and I got excited. Turns out this person ONLY reblogs 😑

    I’ll be honest that I am a bit skeptical about whether re-blogging actually gives the other blogger any real benefits.
    But I will follow Mimi regardless. I trust your judgement 😉

    1. Yea, I don’t get it. Just when I check someone’s Twitter profile and all I see are retweets. What does that mean? I’m not a big fan of such accounts. It feels like cheating a bit. You use other people’s work to get ahead…

      I hear ya. I’m not sure of the benefit, either. But I think her articles can inspire many people and I’m not sure why she doesn’t have more people on her site.

  4. Dear Goldie, I’m truly humbled! It’s a great privilege for me to have one of my posts re-blogged on your site. There are so many wonderful authors commenting on your blog that I’ve never expected to be gifted this way. It matters a lot to me and thank you for your trust in me.

    I believe that nobody is obliged or should be obliged to re-blog any post. I’m surprised that people ask about it. However, what I can say based on my experience is that having your posts re-blogged offers you a great kick of motivation. If you decide to share your valuable creative space to promote someone’s content, it’s like giving someone the wings. Maybe, it’s not something extraordinary for people who are often re-blogged, but for people who are not, it changes everything.

    Thank you for making that change for me!

      1. It definitely helps and I owe you a big thank you for your support! I’m happy that the community of bloggers is not a group of single islands and that there’s so much room for lending a helping hand! I hope that one day or another, I’ll be able to return all the good I’ve received.

        As far as the traffic is concerned, it’s not always the priority. Sometimes less means more 🙂 I’m grateful for every person who brings a spark of light to my blogging place and I truly enjoy getting the circle of my blogging friends extended even if taken slowly.

      1. No, because it isn’t personal and is the topic. For example if I read someone’s post that I think is a good reason to live I’ll ask if I can reblog on there. I use the reblog option so the post is formatted that it is clear it is a reblog and not my own. Also, because it’s content related it’s just not personal at all. And I rarely reblog. And usually it’s not from someone I follow or who follows me. If I reblogged often and from my followers – the people who comment on my posts – then yes, I would try reblog from them all as then it’s personal. Kinda like why I don’t usually do these awards even though I always think I will because who I choose or don’t choose is personal and it’s not something I want to do, like why am I choosing some over others. But as I said that is coz it is then personal. In that case I would try take posts from all my followers, make sure to choose eventually from them all. But also, there aren’t many people commenting on my blog so I could probably do that, I’m not sure if you’d have it that easy.
        I think follow your heart…
        Love, light, and glitter

  5. I’ve only reblogged a handful of posts—most of which were a blog collab between me and another blogger. I don’t think there should be any expectation or obligation to reblog anyone’s content on your own blog, though there are benefits. First, reblogging content keeps your own blog more active, which Google likes. Second, it brings new readers to your blog, especially if you reblog content that is in the same category as your own…though sometimes people are delighted to find something different to read. And third, it spreads the love—always a good thing. I’m interested to hear how it works out for you and those bloggers you reblog!
