Hi, I’m a busy updating my links here and making some few changes. Are you a blogger? If you are a blogger, till my next post spend some time thinking about “Why am I blogging?”. Is it for fun? Are you enjoy? Are you felling depressive with this? If your problem is blogging depression read What Everyone Should know About Blog Depression. Just wonderful.
I love to blog but sometimes I feel sad and angry. Why people say that read your blog and copy your links without any credit? It isn’t nice or smart. I should write this in Portuguese because I had few problems (that I saw) with people copying my links in Brazilians blogs that I know without any credit, just because I’m not a famous blogger or because I’m not part of “the group” – and I really don’t want to be part of that group.
Why am I saying this? Because there are some people that don’t know or don’t want to know about Blog Etiquette and a recent post on Cynical-C showed me this. But it’s enough for me. If you want to copy something it’s ok for me, I don’t give a damn anymore, but don’t say that you read my blog, don’t copy word by word of what I said and publish without credit, and be more humble if you stole links; don’t shout to everybody that you are the best, ok?
But back about blogging, Idelber Avelar published a very nice compendium about bloggers rights called Decálogo dos Direitos do Blogueiro (Portuguese) some time ago. And I have some more interesting links about blogging, just in case you didn’t see them, all posted previously on this blog:
