So on Friday I said tomorrow... and Saturday I said tomorrow... and then Sunday I didn' t blog, so now this seems entirely like I've built up too much drama for something that isn't huge, but it IS something I want to talk to you about.
So I followered her link:
Which was a lot of Harry Potter stuff, but didn't tell me much, as it seems they link to TONS of stuff, so I put 'WateryTart' in the search thing:
And get: http://www.painomovers.com/?s=waterytart
MY BLOG, yeah? Not just an excerpt, not one blog, but a BUNCH!
So I scratched my head, as I do... and thought, okay... what do I want to do with this?
For starters, the RESULT is I've had about 200 extra hits every day. How bad can that BE?
People are reaching me who may NOT be part of this fabulous little familial circle of blogging writers... That is good too... I am extending my reach.
But the blog is just... the BLOG... not my sidebars or any of my info. So I decided what I really wanted to do about it, was just to assert my ownership.
Thus the TAIL in all my blogs from here on out, asserting who WROTE IT (most often me) and where it was originally published. I've decided if my goal is to get around, I ought to just allow myself to be passed about, but I am NOT going to lose my identity over the matter.
The OTHER bloggy issue I've had come up of late... So you know how I fly by the seat of my pantslessness, not particularly worrying about stuff? I got an email from Christy of Christy and Erica about PICTURES... do I worry about copyright issues... Well, erm...
Okay, confession time... this wasn't out of left field. The BURROW only uses public use photos (mostly from Wikimedia Commons or else self taken)... because see... some of them are more diligent than I am...
So I KNOW, I need to be more diligent... I even have PLANS to be more diligent... But I am concerned that that will reduce the volume of eye candy available for my readers who NEED IT!
So.... How do YOU feel about blog material being passed on?
And do you worry about copyright issues for pictures on your blog?
