Color, color and …color by Vanjey_Lego
Although I would phrase it differently, I agree. Luckily the template of my blog always shows where I reblogged things from. I don’t think there are any other posts besides reblogs and ones I created from original sources.
I consider referencing fairly important, that’s why all my post mention the original title (including a link to the image source) and the author (including a link to his profile) as long as both are available. That’s the pattern I follow and I know others do, too. If I reblog something without a source I try my best to find and add one (e.g. here).
I think what you are referring to is this (which is unfortunately is not displayed properly on my blog, only on the dashboard):
[text from said tumblr]
Well, in my opinion that’s a quote, not a reference. If someone had something to say, I agree with and I think needs to be said on my blog too, then I use this layout function (e.g. here), even for non-tumblr quoting (e.g. here). Other than that I think it’s just duplicating what I mentioned above and therefore I stick to my pattern. You could call it editorial freedom if you will, something for example Legosaurus also does.
