DO NOT STEAL!

Hi friends! Something really ‘interesting’ happened to me today (if you’re following me on Twitter you already know): while searching for creamylife on Google Blogs (which is showing me blogs where creamylife, links and title, was mentioned) I came across one site (won’t bother naming it so I don’t provide traffic to them) which is STEALING my posts! Not all of them, apparently they’re selecting the ones they like more and when this is done, they entirely copy/paste them, including pictures (without credit of course!). Everything is the same, they don’t even mind having the word ‘creamylife’ there and probably my name somewhere too. However I wanted to let you all know (those who are planning to ‘borrow’ this way, without linking back and giving credits) that in the right sidebar of this blog you can find what do I think about copyright and what you are ALLOWED to do with what you see on creamylife! Please read that before being so creative and updating regularly your site with MY posts. P.S. If you want to know what did I do about the above mentioned site – I reported it to Google and hopefully this will stop!

Thank you and I’m wishing you a wonderful day or evening!

    Oh Ludmila, that is so frustrating! I’ve heard about a couple of bloggers suffering the same phenomenon and it’s infuriating! Hope they’re made to stop soon.

    I was so sorry to read about this on twitter today, Ludmilla. I remember it happening to another blogger and she was equally distressed and upset. I hope they read your message and stop copying your posts.

    I really hope something is done about this! I cannot believe it!

    I started mentioning myself in my posts in case someone decided to do this to me! It’s easier to track if the key words in the post are your name and site.

    I’m glad you found them, even if it was disappointing.
