First of all thank you so much for all the comments and emails on this post. I’m sorry I’m only replying but I’ve been away for a few days. Just as well as it’s given me time to think about what to do and I’ve dedided to leave it for now. Today the sun has been shining and my hyacinths are blooming so I’m not going to let it get to me.
In the meantime I’ve found some really interesting posts on blogging etiquette and copyright. Even if you have been blogging for years I think these are really interesting reads.
“Be creative, don’t steal other people’s content. Just because you don’t have anything to write to maintain your blog, does not give you the right to copy and paste other people’s work onto yours”
This and more blogging etiquette can be found here
There’s also some great advice at the lovely Creature Comforts blog here on etiquette and ‘copying’.
The most comprehensive post I found is here on the lovely blog Design Sponge. There are some really useful tips and great advice in this post and I recommend everyone read it.
Thanks again for all your comments and support.
