A Post Of Caution

Most plagiarists, like the drone, have neither taste to select, industry to acquire, nor skill to improve, but impudently pilfer the honey ready prepared, from the hive.     Walter Colton

Yesterday I was hit with something that set me back on my heels. I received a message that I had to “pay” for using the writer’s material.  Well there was back and forth, I kindly asked him to notice that I mentioned at the top that it is a re-blog.  I also explained my intent was to bolster people towards his blog which I thought was full of great information.

Thinking back to my grade nine English class how it was drilled into us not to “plagiarize” other’s works.  I have never been accused of that in my entire life. I always gave credit to where credit is due.

What is plagiarism?

Plagiarism is when a person uses other person’s words, work or ideas without giving the author of those works credit. Plagiarism is seen more like an ethical offence instead of a legal one, although it can form the basis of a copyright infringement claim.

So dear reader I write this as a post of caution when you re-blog a post.

What To Write About?

Writing Hand

“The first thing you need to decide when you build your blog is what you want to accomplish with it, and what it can do if successful.” – Ron Dawson

https://www.incomediary.com/bloggerstop-blogging-quotes

I try my level best to consider what I should write.  My posts , for the most part, are opinions, snippets of my life, re-blogs that I feel are credible.

When it comes to medical, pharmaceutical, etc., I will always use sites that are experts in the field I am writings about. Sites such as;  Mayo Clinic, WebMD, plus many more.

Writing about my life, medications I take, treatments I have used, methods of recovery, are just that, my life.  I do not wish for anyone to try what I have used or done, but, rather always follow your Physicians and Psychiatrist.

I realize that this is just a blog, not a news service, yet, I am always prudent in my writing and analysis. 

My skill in writing posts has grown from where I started.  Advice that I have sought, techniques that I have picked up reading others blogs.  One thing that I read about keeping your post interesting was to incorporate pictures, change up the fonts, etc., in my post.

Sometimes I find myself totally amazed.  Posts that I feel are mediocre receives quite a lot of likes and comments.  The ones I think are above average receive the attention of a lead balloon.

For me writing is very cathartic, it allows for me to express myself openly to others.  Hearing their feedback is at most times quite soothing.  

I acknowledge how kind and warm those who take and share their comments, insights, simple conversation at the end of a post. 

There are many benefits from writing, but the one benefit I have notice, is that if I write before I go to bed I seem to fall asleep a bit quicker.

So, I will continue to open myself up sharing my journey on this road to recovery!  Always looking forward to hearing from all in the WordPress community!

When To Write

Blogging and the Internet allow us to engage in a lot more real time conversations as opposed to a one-way dump of information or a message. Indra Nooyi

For some writing comes so naturally.  It seems to flow from them seamlessly.  For this blogger writing still does not come that easy.  I have to feel it in me no matter the subject matter.

If this was to be my way of making money I wouldn’t make a dime.  I like it when I see a new follow, or someone likes my post.  I am really not blogging to purposely build large numbers of follows.

I honestly like to build relationships with those who follow me.  I like to converse through this medium by using the comment section.  Sometimes the conversation is on the serious side, for others it is to share a smile.

When I write sometimes a subject matter comes to me, other times it may be inspired by something I have read, seen, or heard.

I also use the re-blogging feature for the posts that I think should be shared by those who read the posts on this blog.

So, there you go, a bit of insight of what drives my writing!
