Thank you to everyone who has commented on my two posts involving stolen content. Your comments have been both helpful and uplifting.
I hadn't planned it this way, but based on some of the comments I've been receiving, I am going to do a few more series of posts on this topic. This is a serious issue, and I want to share the information I've been learning with my fellow bloggers so we can fight this together.
Right now I'm planning additional posts on these topics: How to tell if you content has been stolen, Steps to take when you become a victim of plagiarism, How to protect your work against future theft, and Tips for making sure you don't inadvertently steal someone's work. I'm going to continue the research I've been doing and spread these out over the next few weeks so you are bogged down in such a serious topic all the time. I don't want the tone of my blog to be like that, but this is important, so it will have to simply be like that some of the time over the next few days.
In the meantime, if you have any tips or suggestions you'd like to offer on any of these topics, please send me an email at shadyglade(AT)mail(DOT)com. As I said, I'm doing lots of research on this, but no amount of typing things into Google can compare with personal experience.
Okay, now I promise on to happier things. I appreciate you hanging in there with me through this.
