I’ve seen a lot being said on regards to plagiarism on the blogverse and personally, I find the act of taking someone’s hard work and claiming it as your own, despicable.
We, the Book Lovers, had a recent email talk about the issue, because we all have our individual blogs besides BLI and cross posting does happen, so we were trying to come up with ways to make it clear that we are simply using our own texts a second time.
When I started thinking about what to write here, I realized something about myself. I actually don’t read reviews of books I haven’t read or reviewed yet because I don’t want to be influenced by someone else’s opinion and writing style in any way, shape or form.
I work hard on my reviews and opinion posts and I know a lot of bloggers do that as well, knowing that there are some blogs out there are taking advantage of us, it’s sad and it hurts.
What about you guys? What do you think about plagiarism?
Have you ever witnessed an instance of it online??
