Is there an FAQ for the etiquette of blog-land? Have you ever read a really great post, and thought, "Self, you have some pretty funny stories or anecdotes along that same line, wouldn't it make a great blog?" Cause after all, you don't want to hijack their blog in the comments, now do you?
Of course not. But, if you post a blog later on concerning the same/similar subject matter, only your take on it, doesn't that seem like blog poaching?
I would probably get a complex if someone posted almost the same exact subject as me on the same day or even a day or two later.
So where is the Miss Manners for Bloggers? Or the Blogger for Dummies book? Maybe I should start my own advice column. You know, "Ask The Evil Twin's Wife" or something like that. Lord knows I love to give my opinions on things, so I'd be good at that. And y'all, there are lots of folks out there who could use my services!
Okay, if you're in a quandry or need advice of any kind, feel free to email me. I'll keep your name private, if you wish and then come up with a decent answer. You can get my email off my "About me" page. Hell, most of you have it in your address books already LOL.
And my question to you, dear readers, is what do you think of blog poaching/hi-jacking? I'll update later with my own 2 cents.
UPDATE: My 2 cents: I guess the consensus is that lifting is OK, as long as credit/link is given. I can agree with that.
Buzzardbilly - probably time for a new stove... :-)
Rosemary - once you are 59 or older, you may feel free to make out where ever you'd like. You've earned it by that age, I would say!
