  1. Can I steal your rules for re-posts? Half kidding, but maybe serious. I need to give it some thought. I have come across this situation before and was torn between my desire to equip however possible and concern over people re-posting things and causing confusion regarding the origin. I think you have hit a happy medium which brings me back to my original question, can I steal it?

    P.S. – I would add this to you about page so that it doesn’t get “lost” in other posts.

  2. Thank you Wayne! Of course you can use it (what a great compliment). I had wrestled some on whether or not I needed a rules for repost. But after putting around 10 hours into a particular post – and then finding it reposted without a proper introduction, virtually verbatum and in full, I decided it was time to do this.

    I think most writers know that developing content and presenting it well takes a lot of effort. Because we are all human, sometimes a lapse in judgment and the quick need for content wins out over going that extra step (of requesting permission or appropriately “rewarding” the original writer).

  3. At some point you have to accept it. For a while spam blogs were growing up everywhere like weeds. I think Google has done a great job killing most of them off and making it not worth while.

    Lately I’ve just not cared as much, most of the time any link from a real site is worth the yucking feeling it gives me. Links are the currency of the Internet, so as long as something points back I feel like they’ve paid for it.

    I think these are good guidelines anyway.

  4. Tony – I hear you. I always value what you have to say (you set the bar for the rest of us kidmin bloggers). The example I mentioned above was definitely not on a spammer’s site. Without going into more detail, it was a situation that let me know that it was time to address this.

    And “yes”…links are currency! I am nearly always THRILLED to see anyone talking about my blog (it means someone is reading it other than my mother!).

  5. Im guessing you are happy with a link being placed on to the additional needs alliance (uk) Facebook group of one of your posts?

  6. Absolutely Bea! Place links anywhere and feel free to share material in training sessions with your own church. The rules for repost is simply a request for people to post a link (and an abbreviated intro if they choose) rather than just cutting and pasting the material from an entire post on their own site and then representing it as their own material and not linking back.

    The link back to this blog is a wonderful “thank you”.

    Thanks for asking!
    Amy
