As a RPG gamer, I always think that the first few levels are intentionally easy, but having past the first ten level ups, things get more difficult.

- Level 21: 750 posts
- Level 22: Reblog a post
My last Level up! 750 posts has been a month ago.
The blogosphere is filled with great posts worthy of your attention. Why did it take so long that I reblogged a title?
First of all, it feels like adorning myself with borrowed plumes. I rather write my own posts for my and everyone else’s amusement than depending on foreign craft.
I also understand that nearly everyone that I could reblog already knows everyone else. Reblogging wouldn’t share new insights.
In the case of John Garth’s (author of “Tolkien and the Great War”) post about an interesting hidden gem of Le Guin nodding to Tolkien in the Earth Sea cycle, it is different: I don’t think that many people here also follow John. And more important: I’m an absolute nerd for Le Guin and for Tolkien and would never have imagined a combination of both in one small essay. That’s worthy to bring to your attention.
Also, I had to check this blogging feature at least once.
How do you feel about reblogging, how often do you do it?
