To Those Re-Blogging My Work
This is an open note to anyone who reads and enjoys my blog. I have gotten notes from faithful followers on other bloggers who cut and paste my words and/or reblog entire posts without affirmation.
Let me make the generous assumption that many who have done this are simply ignorant about how to re-blog a post you like and/or add your own comments in a respectful manner.
IF you like my captions, I consider it respectful if you hit the “REBLOG” button and ensure my ENTIRE POST is kept - complete with the “reblogged from” note - the attribution to me.
If you want to make my caption special to someone or comment back to me about it, I LOVE additional notes or feedback. Simply add your comments as separate and distinct - above or below my caption - and everything is fine.
IF you like the PICTURE but not my caption - no worries at all. Just remove the ENTIRE caption when you re-blog and add your own. I get almost all of my pictures from other blogs.
I can’t tell you how much it affects me when I see my thoughts and words posted as if they came from another person. My blog is comprised of personal experiences, philosophies, and loving reflections that span a number of years. It takes time and focus to compose and edit my captions - sometimes to address follower questions - and sometimes to reach special people in my life. My words are my voice here on tumblr. It is maddening to think a blogger might want to impress others by editing my personal work.
To my loyal followers - please update me if my work is being plagiarized. Let’s all be vigilant - and send notes to those who may have good intentions but are ignorant on proper attribution.
I encourage re-blogs on this with your personal comments!
