To the thief: Practice what you preach. Or should I re-phrase my statement: practice what you write.
Yesterday, the “thief” wrote a post about being true to one’s self entitled: Be True To Yourself. What an irony! Or is this just another copied article again, that she did not even bother to read?
If you have been reading my other blog, you must be already aware about my recent issue about a plagiarized blog content. I have written about it here, here and here. It was surreal reading my original written article (copied word for word), a paid post at that, on someone else’s blog. My efforts to have this issue taken cared of, and the criminal to once and for all be made liable for her misdeed is finally realized. The fact that I’m not her only victim, (Leomar’s Den is another victim) only goes to show that many of us, bloggers, could have been unknowingly victimized by the same criminal already.
Thus, I’m thanking Juliana of Pinay WAHM, for passing this very timely meme on to me. Most of all, I’m extending my sincere appreciation to Cee of Living A’ La Mode who felt impelled to start a meme to enjoin every blogger to take action against plagiarism.
IF YOU ARE A CONSCIENTIOUS BLOGGER, AND YOU ARE DENOUNCING THE ACT OF PLAGIARISM, PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD. I’M URGING YOU TO TAKE PART IN THIS MEME. THANK YOU SO MUCH! ( You don’t need to link me up, just copy the text below. All I’m requesting is for you to take take part and help me spread the word.)
