You’ve probably seen this message elsewhere, so it may not surprise you to read this, but there are some DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS out there, stealing blog content from me and hundreds of others.
Apparently, it’s easy to do.
Sadly, it’s happening A LOT.
I work my butt off, doing projects, taking pictures, writing posts…and as soon as I hit “Publish”, there are sites that grab (scrape) my content right out of my “Feed” and publish it on their own site.
So what’s a girl to do?
I have to “Truncate” my feed to make it harder for MY content to be STOLEN.
What does it mean to truncate? It means that if you read my blog in email, or a reader, you will only get a summary and then you have to “CLICK” over to read it directly from my blog.
Some people think that is a huge pain in the patoosky. If you are in that group, I’m sorry.
I’m trying to figure out a way to give you a picture along with the snippet so you’ll know if it’s something you want to take the time to click over for, but right now I it’s just a snippet.
I hope you’ll stick with me.
This won’t stop thievery altogether, but it’ll sure make it a lot harder for people to steal other peoples’ hard work. So take that Dirty Rotten Scoundrels out there!
Oh, and if you ever read MY content somewhere else (that is not an obvious Guest post on a friend’s blog), give them the What For, because they are the reason for this pain in the patoosky , truncating hullabaloo that has to take place now.
