Aura puts her foot in it
December 14, 2007
It was bound to happen. I plow into this blogosphere with great intentions and bugger it all up.
Here’s the seedy tale.
I found a really great article about a bacon cookie recipe. I posted it on my bog, stating that it and other great recipes could be found at http://neverbashfulwithbutter.blogspot.com/.
Then I got readers. By their comments, I determined that they believed this was MY recipe. I tried to clear it up and just made things worse (go figure!)
I asked a blogger friend what was the proper protocol on linking to other authors and he thought I was accusing the original author of plagiarism. On my behalf, he very kindly wrote a letter to the original author asking her to cease and desist before I could explain myself to him. (Yikes!)
I have emailed an apology to the author.
I am prepared for all the comments on what a moron I am.
I read lots of articles about how to blog, and I have never seen this topic come up.
Feel free to direct me to more helpful information!
