I recently stumbled upon a blog where the author had copied and was using my blog posts. No pingbacks or mention that I was the original author, just plain copy and pasting of some of my posts and images. It left me feeling angry, yet I also felt honoured that my work must be good enough if somebody wanted to copy it.
Unfortunately, with the internet being such a vast and open space used by billions of people worldwide, the chances of that happening to any one of us who publishes anything on the internet is a distinct possibility. Whether it be photos, fiction, reviews, poetry, recipes or gardening tips, everything faces the chance of being copied and somebody else taking full credit for your hard work.
In my case, I contacted the blogger concerned and asked them to remove all of my…

I published two posts that totally disappeared into thin air and comments are disappearing, today I found one in the trash and my comment to them has now disappeared! I also have found post from people I follow in the spam folder, and I keep getting ping backs from my homepage to post that I published a while ago…🤔
Because of a new EU law, I may have to close down this blog, or at the very least stop posting and probably delete all posts containing a link, which means practically all posts.
Needless to say, I’m extremely displeased.
I’m not even sure I can continue blogging at all. Even if I only use my WordPress.org blog and post ’ordininary’ blog posts, it may be too complicated to bother. Can I even post photos I’ve taken with my own phone? At this point, nothing is certain. My sister and I may be able to hand code our home pages/blogs like in the old days, and my sister is great at making graphics but again, I’m not sure what is allowed or not.
It may not be strictly necessary for me to post links to newspaper articles or even reblog other people’s posts, even though I think it’s important…
You have probably noticed by now that the reblog button has disappeared. I contacted WordPress yesterday and they answered me this afternoon.
FromWordPress support…Thank you for letting us know! We have seen several reports that the reblog button is not appearing on some sites right now, we are working to find a solution and getting that back up on all sites. We thank you for your patience and we’ll have this problem fixed as soon as possible.
Well I had my cataract surgery today and I tried to read your comments, that’s not working out, so I’m going to give everybody 🌟 and by the weekend I should be able to see 20/20 so I’ll be able to chat with you 😎
BELOW MY 4th or 5th response maybe 4th because I know one I received an error message in one!!! Go figure:
I like the old admin secure pages, I do not like the new stats page! I feel like we are being forced to use the new design! I DO NOT understand why WordPress cannot stop making changes! It’s VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!
Takes the fun out of blogging if I constantly have to figure out a way around the new changes!
I had several bed bound friends that have all but quit blogging because they cannot keep up or figure out how to respond to comments. I’m techie so this of course it just a pain for me but for those who rely on WP to reach out to others it’s cruel to do to them! I realize “NEW AND INNOVATIVE” is the wave of the future, but the elderly/sick/not techie…
Hi everyone, I want to apologize to all my followers who are so faithful and to all my new followers…this caught me off guard…September 2014~I started having trouble with my right eye..blurred vision, flashes and double vision…my eye doctor said I needed to get laser surgery for a torn retina and my eye surgeon told me I also had Macular Pucker, that was causing my central blind spot which made it very difficult reading and performing tasks that required detail vision…I had the laser surgery and when I went back to have my eye checked the scar tissue on my eye was rapidly growing so I needed emergency eye surgery …all went well until I started putting eye drops in and I was allergic to the antibiotic which cause my whole right side of my face to swell up all the way down to my neck… was not a pretty sight and I could barely open my eye.. things are going well and I am seeing well enough to read but not for long I still get some double vision and a headache around my eye, the doctor said it would take 6 months to a year to heal and I will get cataracts which will need removed… 😦
I will start posting again and reading all your wonderful blogs~peace

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
