Hi Sweet Friends ~ warm thanks for your comments on my last post, it's nice to hear from dear friends and new followers too:)
Imagine you're surfing the web and there you see it, one of your finish photos... so you click on it and find yourself at another's blog. Recently I discovered one of my long ago finish photos had been lifted and posted to another's blog, just for reference, no claim or link was made to my finished piece. Sometimes I tend to forget to watermark my photos, guess I'll have to be more mindful in the future.
One time I wanted to link a photo to a tutorial for a project I had completed, but certainly asked the original blogger's permission first, which she graciously granted.
I'm gathering my thoughts as I always do and considering contacting the blogger (outside the U.S.) and nicely asking her why she failed to ask permission. Perhaps this is a commonly accepted practice outside the U.S.? Simply put, I'd appreciate the courtesy of being asked. Am I the only one who feels this way?
You're right... this isn't an earth shattering issue, but a blogging one, and I felt comfortable opening the topic for discussion.
Because I'm no expert on blogging protocol, I'm wondering if anyone has feedback to share?
