Copying Is Wrong
I’m here today to talk to you bloggers about copying.
We all know that copying is wrong, so why do people still do it?? I go to several blogs each day. Most of them use their own unique ideas ( as far as I know) and a few others take ideas from other blogs. I’ve seen blogs using the exact same titles with the same concept as another blogger. Some name it something different, but use the same story or theme.
I visit a few blogs that I know for a fact have copied me and my friend. It’s not right and I do not tolerate it at all. Let’s do a little example of copying.
So let’s say you copy one of my photostory series. You never see me comment on my blog, so you may think “Oh, she never comments on my blog, so I can make this.” Just because I don’t comment on your blog, doesn’t mean I don’t look at it. I rarely comment on blogs anymore- just because it takes too much time. So, I could very well find out that you have copied me. Or maybe even somebody who reads my blog and your blog, could let me know that I have been copied. The point is- no matter what wrong thing you do- whether it’s copying, lying, stealing, etc. you will always get caught. Somebody will always find out.
Here’s another example:
Say there are two painters and they each are sitting next to each other with their easels and they have to paint the scenery in front of them. One painter is starting to paint and he’s doing really good, but the other painter starts to copy the other’s painting, instead of looking at the actual scenery and painting their own thing. It’s exactly the same with blogging.
Does it make it right to copy if nobody finds out? No.
Does it make right up until the point somebody does find out? Of course not.
Copying is all around wrong. And I must tell you the truth- I really don’t like it when I see that somebody has copied me. It makes me very sad and upset. Someone has taken my idea, one of the names I use in my photostory series (this happened at the same time that series was going on and that person reads my blog), pictures I have used, and it’s very upsetting, because someone took my original idea and used it on their blog. I don’t understand why people have to copy. Can’t they just get their own original and unique idea from their own mind instead of stealing someone else’s?
So, please all of you bloggers out there- don’t copy. It’s really hurtful to the person who’s being copied and it’s just not right. And readers- if you ever notice that someone has been copied- PLEASE let the person who copied and the person who is being copied know right away!
Thank you all for taking the time to read this!
