Hi Everyone Just to let you all know

I am noticing some posts that went into the warrior forum a day or 2 after mine and there pitching something or other.
I just wanted to say that in both the posts it looks like the information I put on my blog has been spun. Not by much and they have added it to their post.. now i'm in a fix for what to do.

I really want to keep my blog going as I know it has helped people all ready and I want to continue to help.
However i'm not putting all this content on here and updating it for it to be taken and re hashed into some junk that someone is trying to piece together in 5 minutes!!!

So im opening a new blog!! A Private one for people to keep up to date with what i'm doing if you would like the address please pm me and I will send you a link to the new URL.

I am sorry about this but I am not working this hard to have some particular 5 min wonders steal everything I have done an that is what they look to be....

Firstly like I said in my other post I am not a pro marketer like some here, but I really feel I can help as I have been self employed in the UK for the past 9 years in total not all of those years have been easy.
Well almost 9 years its my birthday on Saturday!!!!! all kisses and presents gratefully accepted (kisses by the ladys only though!! )

The nine years have been in two different businesses both are still up and running so I like to think I am entitled now to share a little
Thanks again for reading

    Hi Owen,

    Happy Birthday for Saturday "x"

    Please report this problem to the help desk.
    Point them to the original content (post) from your blog and then give them a link to the forum post where your content has been stolen.

    If they agree your content has been used, they will deal with the offenders.

    Hi Janet
    Thanks for the advice. but it would be hard to prove they have broken it up through there posts as a matter a fact one of these people started another post on cold calling!! and theres a lot of my work on it!! all my work is coming off this blog today.

    I'm so sorry that people are copying your work and not giving you credit for it. *sigh*

    Nevertheless, pointing it out to the help desk is a good idea. Chances are, if the person (or people) stole from you... they've stolen from others and will continue to spoil things until they receive a warning.

    I'd also bet the help desk has been keeping an eye on them, just waiting for someone to say something.

    Even when content is spun, that's still a "derivative work" and -- in the U.S. and several other countries -- a copyright violation. I'm pretty sure the Warrior Forum takes that seriously.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to PM you. I'm not likely to make cold calls (I'm practically allergic to them), but I enjoy reading your enthusiastic posts and your refreshing writing style.

    Writing like yours has a "voice," and that's lost when people spin articles.

    It's kind of like recorded music: I'll always prefer the rough, ragged squawks and missed-notes of a brand new band, as opposed to the perfected-within-an-inch-of-its-life version that's later produced by mixers in the studio.

    So, keep writing. Keep sharing what you're doing, so others can benefit from it.

    Thank you!
