Well, well. Look what I found…

I was trolling around on the Internet; trying to figure out how some of you know what Google Searches are leading to your blogs.  Does that even make sense?  I’ve come across a few blogs where the authors have posted how some people have stumbled across their blogs through Google – and what the word search was that led them there.  (Yes, that’s clearer)

Anyway, lo and behold, look what I found:

I don’t know who or what this jerk is – but he STOLE my content!  This is mine:

http://gigisramblings-gso.blogspot.com/2009/09/he-makes-me-laugh.html

Yes, the jerk garbled it; but it’s MINE!!!!  And you know what?  I didn’t even get attribution!  I’ve searched the site high and low – and there’s no way to reach the jerk that I have discovered yet.

I also found this:

But at least these people list me as the “Source” and when you click the title it directs you back to my page.

I’ve done a little research – and apparently, at least the first one are called SPLOGS – I can only assume that means Spam Blogs.  What their purpose is I don’t know.  But if I can figure out how to hunt this guy down and hurt him; I will. 

So anybody with any ideas on how to protect my stuff – without locking this sight down tighter than Fort Knox – please let me know.  Because this really, really ticks me off.

I generally respond to comments via email...if your blog/id is not tied to your email, I will attempt to respond here...but I would strongly suggest that you make your email available if you want to continue the conversation.

Unfortunately, for some reason people with Yahoo emails are receiving bounce-backs. Your comment will be published but I won't be notified; but I will respond once I realize you've left a comment.
