Tonight as part of my usually evening routine I was on twitter. As I was reading all the tweets I noticed a tweet by Jennifer @TequilaReader. If you click on @TequilaReader you will go directly to her blog. She had mentioned A Books Blog had taken her blog content and others that she knew as well and basically copied and pasted it on there site. All without authorization!!
I was curious so I went to check it out and guess what? Yes, that is right content from Cindy’s Love of Books appears on this site. Now should I be flattered that my blog is worthy of stealing from or should I be annoyed that it was taken without my permission?
Okay I have to confess I am a little flattered that someone would steal my content because I never felt that my content was that great and I base this on a few things such as my numbers, followers, comments etc so of course it feels a little good.
Now the more I think about it I am annoyed because like I said my content was taken without my permission and sadly since it has been taken I haven’t had any benefits from it such as more comments, followers etc. So yea darn it I am annoyed.
I will be contacting this blog and telling them to please remove my content.
If you have a few minutes I would seriously check this blog out to see if any of your content is there. I didn’t go through the almost 600 pages instead I used the search tool on the site and entered my blog name and it all popped up.
What would you do if you found your stuff on this blog? Has it happened to you?
If you are reading this on a blog or website other than Cindy’s Love Of Books or via a feedreader, this content has been stolen and used without permission.
