I'm getting really tired of surfing the net. The more I surf, the more sites I see with people that have blatantly copied my efforts. Today I found this blog by a girl that is a member of one of the sites I post on. She copied my posts, sometimes just reversing the order of my sentences! The information that has taken me months to write and research was just copied and pasted in her blog this month. Let's not even talk about Associated Content. I even found some of my frugal posts over there!
What do you think I should do? Should I just go on or blow the whistle? If I do, what will it really accomplish? I can confront the culprits, but I'm sure it won't make a difference. Let's be for real! I take the time to carry a pen around with me when I take my 7 kids out to write thought out interesting posts and someone else gets paid for it? Even if it's a small fee at Associated or google adsense, is that really fair? The funny part is that you are using all the sites that I suggested and you didn't think I was going to find out.
For those of you that think you were smart enough to subscribe to these posts so you can copy and paste...there is a little site on the net called CopyScape. Do the right thing and alert Associated Content and take my posts off your blogs. You wouldn't want me to alert blogger.com or Google Adsense-since your blogs are plastered with ads containing my content.
I had a bad day. I think I'm going to go ruffle some feathers at the site she used to find my content...
