Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2018/03/1978-pjc-vedders-modern-mushroom.html

{How Blogs Work}

How blogs work: Just had to share this with you as it is so TRUE!
It is hard for producing your own original content, your own photos and doing your own styling.
Yet there are so many out there that are showing off someone else's feathers. 
Plagiarism seems to become the norm. How do you feel about this? 
Do you share mostly original content on your blog or things created by others?

  1. kind of funny. since i don't blog for decorating or design or even crafts, i do all my own photo and prose content. still, i have had some of my photos stolen and re-posted by a blogger as their own. it will happen.

  2. Hi Mariette, Well, I do all my own photos and features from my artwork, decorating and tutorials. Very seldom to I ever share a picture unless it goes along with a graphic that is free to use.
    However, I have found my pics on other sites just as sharing pics and those were taken without permission. It does happen and very hard to police this. If you find it, you can ask them to remove the content. If not, then you have terms for action. This is why it is important to watermark your pics before posting. It all takes time, but helpful.
    Have a great night my friend and thank you for stopping by.
    I hope you don't get our bad weather your way. It is still mighty cold here.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

Voor foto's vraag ik toestemming aan de betreffende, dat kost wel veel tijd, maar levert ook leuke reacties en fijne contacten op. Het zijn wel onderwerpen die mij interesseren en dat zijn er veel, daarom is het vaak een hak op de tak blog. Fijne dag, lieve groet

  8. Oh thank God it’s Thursday-almost Friday too!
    I really enjoyed reading your blog post. Your passion comes out in your writing. Keep at it! Why? Because every little bit helps and you never know who is watching/listening/learning from you! If you are feeling a bit worn out, come on over to my blog and let me encourage you!
    Ciao ciao for now~

    P.S. Did you check out TEEN WEEK yet?

  9. Hallo Mariette,
    das ist wohl leider wahr. Es ist einfacher, anderer Leute Bilder und Ideen zu zeigen. Manchmal nehme ich Fotos von Wikipedia, wenn ich kein eigenes Bild machen konnte. In den meisten Fällen sind es jedoch meine eigenen Bilder. Die versehe ich auch mit meinem Schriftzug, denn es gab schon Fälle, wo die Fotos auf anderen Homepages oder Blogs auftauchten. Dann steht zumindest schon mal mein Name drin. Ich wundere mich über einen Teil der Kommentare bei dir. Diese Fishing for Links-Kommentare schmeisse ich grundsätzlich raus, nachdem ich mal gelesen habe, dass diese Art Verlinkung zur Abwertung im Ranking führen kann.
    Liebe Grüße

  10. Yes it is a good point. I have only my own images and text otherwise it is not my blog.

    Hugs your friend from Sweden

  11. Oh ja ik neem al mijn foto's zelf van mijn eigengemaakte rozen.Fotograferen vind ik zelfs leuk.

    Fijne avond,


  12. Dearest Mariette,

    Great Point!,Until this time being I use my own photos captured by my amateur camera ;) and handmade made by my own hand ;). unfortunately it always happen on blogs world. Only some vintage clip art and once I had sharing idea from other crafter can be useful for others surely with their link source.
    have a nice days

  13. I cant imagine any pleasure you would get from posting something someone else had already created.

  14. Dear Mariette,

    Great post and thanks for sharing this - I mostly use my own photographs and now and again if I have an old vintage picture or something that is too good not to share, if it fits in with my post.
    I have heard some blogs are being copied word for word with pictures, which is totally unfair.
    Have a happy weekend

  15. Dearest Mariette, All content on my blog is mine unless I am promoting something for another blogger. I have never figured out how to find out if someone has stolen my content. How do you accomplish that search?
    Love to all,

  16. Thank you for sharing this. As a writer, I feel that my work is myself. I hope that people respect others' work, but I suppose if we want our work to be read, we have to take the risk. <3


Thanks for your visit and comment.
