I love cooking and you all know that by now.
When I first started this blog it was with the intention of actually just keeping an online recipe binder for myself, a place where I could come and find my favorites and not have to deal with tons of little papers or folders around my kitchen.
As time went by I started getting readers and comments here and there, and I was surprised that anyone would want to see what I was doing or what I was cooking. But it thrilled me, it made me happy to know that I was at least inspiring others to get back into cooking and to enjoy it.
Over the years I have come to share many recipes, some my own, some from my Portuguese Heritage, some from cookbooks and others from wonderful online food blogs. I have always given credit where credit is due, but yes I admit that there has been a time or two where I forgot to add the Credit info under the name of the recipe, purely an oversight on my part and when reminded of it by the owner, I immediately made sure to rectify the error.
Unfortunately I have now fallen victim to a blog who thinks they are entitled, who seems to think that it's ok to steal my posts, copy them word for word, including my own pictures and post it on their website as if it's theirs. It's disgusting for lack of a better word and frankly it made me sick to my stomach to see so many of my posts being posted as if theirs.
I am not the only one though, as they are stealing from another blogger too, right down to their family posts. The Gall of some people just never ceases to amaze me.
The blog is kidsrecipes.us and I suggest you all check and make sure that your posts are not also being stolen from your blogs.
Unfortunately this incident comes right on the heels of me taking an online break and coming back all happy, needless to say it has left a really bad taste in my mouth and I'm considering either discontinuing the blog or going private. For now I've already added the right click disabling script and next step will be to start watermarking all my photos.
I've contacted this person and have already told her to remove all of my posts from her blog, if she doesn't then the next step will be filing legal complaints.
Just wanted to let you all know what was going on and why you suddenly can't right click on anything. I apologize to my faithful readers who unfortunately have to suffer because of others. Hopefully everything will be sorted out soon.
