WhisperFollow is a plugin for wordpress written in PHP that enables Tumblr like social blogging on your wordpress blog from across the web by aggregating Microformats2 enhanced webpages and RSS/Atom feeds and allowing reblogging with comments.

It does create a new post category for “whispers” into which all reblogs will be posted though one can then edit the new posts as one likes. If one wants to exclude this whispers category from any section of wordpress such as their frontpage (so landing users only see original content) I recommend Simply Exclude.

Once installed navigate to the page with the slug “following” eg “yoursite.com/blog/following”.

This content on this wall page is visible only to you unless you reblog items.
