We Interrupt Our Regular Scheduled Broadcast....
OK so I was doing my surfing rounds yesterday and was mildly perturbed. As I was visiting my favorite BWE bloggers (see the above blog roll); I was guided to a link that led to a forum somewhere within askmen.com
Lo and behold a writer/commenter screen name "JE" on Ask Men has used bits and pieces of an article I wrote for EzineArticles and for DWB. It's bad enough he didn't cite nor quote me, he added some very nasty stuff about black women in his write-up. Thereby giving the impression that the writer is a disgruntle white man, not a sexy black woman, such as myself. So without the cites/quotes you have no idea who wrote it.
I am no different than a writer/blogger from a big time magazine or large blog. I'm using MY creative energy (yeah I got a little bit) and MY time and I think I deserve some credit.
As you can see I cite everything I use because it's only fair. It's fair to the writer and to the readers. To be credible is everything!
There's also another white male blogger/website owner who continues to snatch bits and pieces from my blog without citing me. Not very nice!
Just to be warned, I will waste no time putting folks on blast!
