Bloggers aren’t perfect. I’ve seen bloggers re-post other bloggers posts and didn’t think much of it. That’s nice, you can post each others information as long as you give them credit…kind of.
I found a recipe on Facebook that was shared and shared and shared…so many times I almost quit searching for it’s origins until finally I found it. I know, I should’v looked there first. Ha ha.
I posted the recipe on my blog. Used the creators picture. Posted a link to the creators blog. Well, apparently that doesn’t work for recipes. I got a message from a friend telling me there’s a buzz going around the network she’s in about someone at Chicken Wranglers stealing her recipe. Wait a minute, I gave her credit and posted a link to her blog. What’s wrong?
I stole her traffic. I didn’t think that by posting the entire recipe there was no need for viewers to go to her blog. (Except that she had a lot of other great recipes). I removed the recipe, but left the picture with the link to her blog and a comment about the recipe. I also talked to the owner and made things right.
If you are using someone else’s picture, ask permission! If you are using someone else’s information, recipe or entire post, get permission if copy righted or give them credit and a link back to their post if not. Otherwise you’re stealing someone’s hard work and talent.
Read up on blogging etiquette! I’d post a link and picture, but they’re all copy righted. 🙂
