blog

BLOG is such an ugly word. Really. Say it out loud right now. If you didn’t sound like you just belched while trying to speak, then you either said it wrong or you’ve got a sexy British accent. Anyway, if you’re not sure what you want to see here, of if you want to see the full monty, select BLOG to your left or click here.

  1. I think this is a powerfull blog with much interesting topics about this stuff. And i just wanna say thanks for this. I’ll subscribe to your blog to see if you post more stuff like these!

  2. I’m a newborn to blogging, much like your recent post about visiting newborns. It’s a good question, though, and I think your referring to hackers “scraping” (i.e. using programs to copy your content automatically to their blog). However, I don’t think there are plugins to prevent that.

    I am very concerned about copyrights. I don’t want to unwittingly use another person’s copyrighted material without permission, and I likewise don’t want them using mine. Unfortunately, from what I’ve been reading on WordPress and other sites, scraping isn’t preventable. The recommendations are to include copyright notices on every page of your blog and a simpler copyright message in each post. They also recommend putting trackback links in your posts that will link back to your blog. That way, when something is inevitably scraped and posted somewhere else, you might get people who click the links and end up on your blog instead.

    I’ve been putting a trackback link in my copyright message, but I haven’t yet started putting them elsewhere in posts… yet. I will be doing that.

    If I do find one, I will message you. Please do the same. Bloggers should have a vested interest in protecting each other.

    Does that help?

  3. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than
    ever before.

    • Thank you, very much. I don’t think there is a better compliment possible. You’ve just made this venture worthwhile for me. I’ve only been doing this for a couple of weeks and I feel I’m still getting my sea legs under me. I just want to voice what I think and feel, fill it with honesty, and I hope it brings value to someone else through entertainment, education, and inspiration.
