Someone Stole My Blog Post!

As a budding writer, it is extremely frustrating to discover that your well thought out idea and post has been stolen or appropriated by some stranger out there. After the initial reaction, this is usually screaming/ wailing like a banshee or spending the afternoon crying (especially if their blog has a higher readership than yours), its time to become proactive. Many blog sites offer their clients ways to clear up the issue of theft. If you can furnish proof of the infringement in question, most sites will delete the blog.

But what happens when the person or blogger in question simply stole your idea?

What happens when their post is clearly based on your unique idea and the person has cleverly re-worked your post so that the content, although too suspiciously related, is not yours anymore and there are two very similar posts.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing you can do about this. And that is the beauty and misfortune of posting an idea on the internet mywebmagazine.co.uk. By posting your Intellectual Property (IP), on the internet, anyone can take it and re-use it. You should count yourself lucky, especially as a blogger, if you happen to catch them. That way, you can monitor their blog and tailor your posts to be less general.

When this happened to me, I simply commented on the post and let the blogger know that I had seen the article they had written with my IP. It worked, they stopped phishing my site for ideas. This though was a case of chance.

As a blogger, you have a big choice to make, to either post about general things – entertainment, art, music reviews and news, so that if the content is appropriated by someone, its generic content and your readers come to your site because of the way you shape that generic information. Or you can tailor your content to your unique circumstance and writing style, which makes it very hard for anyone to steal your content and blatantly obvious if they do.

By tailoring your articles, I mean that you as a writer need to have such a distinct voice and content that it would be foolhardy for anyone to try and appropriate your writing. If you look at any of the top rated websites and articles, you can always tell who wrote that particular post because as with a print writer or journalist, they have their own unique writing style.
