The right thing to do

While it is flattering to have someone quote me, or use an idea I created, it is appropriate for anyone who uses a substantial part of any post from my works to get permission first. I did not use someone else’s questiions when I tagged individuals here on wordpress, but wrote my own questions.

There is a person out there using my questions and attributing one of my blog posts to another person. This is not appropriate in the land of blogging nor in any writing venue. I have since tried to contact this person, yet their blog site is failing to work properly when I post comments. If you are that person, please change your description. I wrote “Tagging Thyme” and the eleven questions you are using are questions I made up.

Professionals need to act like professionals. If you are not a professional, please note there is a right and a wrong way to use another’s material. This is why authors can make money; they have rights. I, and every other blogger on the internet, have specific rights.
