This shouldn’t really need to be said but just a quick reminder on the two most important rules of blogging etiquette …
- Always quote your sources, preferably with a link
- Don’t pass off someone elses work as your own
Like 99.9% of bloggers, I really don’t care if what I write is copied and posted elsewhere (as long as it’s not every post I write) but I do expect to see at least my name mentioned, if not a backlink. I certainly don’t expect to see something I’ve written passed off as someone elses work, that’s just not on.
I might forget what day of the week it is half the time but even after … plucking a date out of the air … 3 years, 1 month and 5 days, I can still recognise my own writing.
There, I’ve got that off my chest, now let’s move on. Thank you for your time.
