  • Hey, bump is basically giving the post a kick in the pants. Not letting it go to the ever after posts, keeping it alive. When someone posts bump,,it keeps the post around for longer!

  • Someone once went all berserk on me because I bumped her post, She thought I was being mean.

    It is also a good way to mark a post or a journal to come back to later using the my replies link for groups and the my comments link for journals.
