Of late, I've been noticing a new blog pinging and trying to get reader's attention at Project Petaling Street. Naturally, I was attracted due to the interesting headlines used. Titles such as 10 Techniques for Finding Blog Readers and 19 More Strategies for Finding Blog Readers. The blog I am talking about is Lets (sic) Blog and the url reads http://blogs-secrets.blogspot.com/. Wow! Blog secrets. Little did I know that when I went over to read the blog, it is basically a complete cut and paste blog. The two articles were copied in toto from Darren Rowse's Problogger.Net website here and here.
A word of advice. Read Problogger.Net's FAQ. The relevant part which I wish to highlight here is this:-
May I republish posts from ProBlogger on my own Blog?
You may not republish full posts from ProBlogger without my direct permission (and in most cases if permission is sought I will still say no). Feel free to quote anything from this blog (within reason - ie a paragraph or two is pretty normal) with a link to it as a source, but keep in mind that this is copyrighted material. I regularly find people who do republish my articles without acknowledgment of source and/or without permission and pursue them to remove it.
Please don't embarass yourself by being a cheat.
