So I thought I would put my two cents in with what's been going on in the blogging world.
A blogger who shall remain nameless was caught plagiarizing other bloggers. She posted about it but didn't really come out and say she was sorry.
Now she is doing posts on her blog all week about plagiarizing. It just seems wrong to me. She hasn't said sorry yet but she's posting blogs about it. Almost like it never happened to her.
Yes we all make mistakes but we must admit those mistakes and fix it. I have to ask though. As the saying goes, "Once a cheater, always a cheater." How do we know this blogger won't do it again? Can we trust her now when she posts?
What's scary is that a lot of people support her. Why? She did something wrong. She can say she's sorry but her mistake will always be there. It's the internet, it's not going anywhere. She'll have to work harder if she wants the support again.
Another question I have. Why not do research? It's been awhile but I believe it was about blogging. I can't remember the exact topic at the moment but couldn't she do her own research? Yes we're going to have some of the same ideas but use your own words. I bet I can word something different from another blogger. I can even add on to it. The other blogger doing the same topic as me can do their own words and add their own twist.
It's like when you would write a school paper. We all had to do the same book report. I'm sure when it came to writing a paper on Romeo and Juliet we used a lot of the same scenes but we used our own words.
Please people. Don't do what this blogger did. Use your own words, don't steal.
Did you hear about this blogger? What are your thoughts?
