Question by Delisa K: I am new to the blogging community and was wondering how do I go about featuring someone else’s blog?
I just started blogging a couple of week’s ago, but I have been reading other blogs for a long time. People say oh I was featured on such and such’s blog or you will see This is a feature blog from so and so. How do I feature someone else’s blog? Do I need their permission? Do I just blog about their site? What do I do?

Usually you won’t need to ask for permission to feature or talk about other people’s blogs. You will, however, need to ask for permission to re-use content from other blogs.
Just think about blog like a book. You won’t need the author’s permission to talk or comment about the book, but you do need permission to re-use its content. Many times, due to different reasons, you can’t acquire permission, then what you need to do is to cite the sources when needed.
