So long Booklikes

Yesterday I posted a review of James Tate's Absences in honor of his passing on Wednesday. Debbie Spurts reblogged the post without asking, but I sat and watched, thinking that perhaps one of her readers would click through her reblog to "like" the original post, or even follow the author of a "liked" post. Well, that didn't happen at all. The reblog got 13 "likes" and the original 3...  :)   


That didn't bother me much, but I noticed that as I made modifications to my post, they weren't reflected in the reblog. I went so far to run an experiment: I deleted my original post (I still have the last draft) and the only change in the reblog was to no longer signify that it was a reblog!


After a few requests Debbie Spurts was kind enough to delete the reblog, and I thank her again for that. But this is my last post on BL. I will keep my account because I love two things about BL: (1) The format of the posts is much nicer than the format at GR and Leafmarks; (2) The draft feature is wonderful.


So I will continue to draft any reviews I may write in the future here, but will only post them in  GR and LM, who do not have such a reblog feature. Perhaps we will run across each other in those sites. In any case, take care folks!
