First, let me emphasise that there is a big difference between print media and online media. Where I encourage you to share my work online (according to my suggested guidelines below), you cannot print what I have shared online (text and photo) without my permission. If you need my permission, please contact me.
I believe in sharing ideas and expressions, I share a lot via various social media, and I am honoured when people appreciate my work.
However, there are many different ways of doing so. Personally, I am for the one which ensures me optimal credit of my work (text and photo), and for one which makes the reader stay as long as possible on my blog. This is a longer explanation, but in short the reason is to do with visits to my blog (visits makes more people visit, makes my placement on Google go up, creates more interaction to i.e. my website etc.) I don't blog for money, but I do value my name, my work and my efforts - so please honour this, and credit me correctly. Another issue is that I like my work to adhere to the correct context in order to avoid misunderstandings, hence why the linking back to the original post is important.
If you like something I have published, and feel like sharing, you can of course use the automatic 'Share' and 'RT' functions, but if you do the copy/ paste thing, please observe the following:
Don't ever copy/ paste/ save my photos or text and put them on print without asking if I agree to.
Don't copy my full blog posts and paste them on your blog. Even though you credit my text/ photo. it may not mean that people will visit my blog (as they will read it on yours). What I prefer you'd do, is to write a brief one-liner introducing my post - like, explain why you like it and think it should be shared, then copy/ paste some few lines from my blog post, and add a link to the original blog post. It also makes your blog more interesting that you add something yourself. If you link to my blog I will also find you via Google Analytics, and I may want to link back (if not, I may never see it).
