A reader, Ms Leo, has just let me know that this site is copying my posts. I remember this happening last year I think it was and at first, I would get a ping back which I approved. I don’t mind reblogs, I’m always happy to share information but I went to check out the site and discovered that the whole thing was made up of posts from my and other toy collectors blogs. There was nothing from the site owner by way of explanation or acknowledgement of any of the bloggers used. I found that unacceptable and I am pretty sure I contacted them to say that I withdrew any permission I might have given them. I thought that would be the end of it.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t. This morning I tried to use their “Contact Us” page to message them but it was quite strange. I was able to input my details but, in the space, where I wanted to write my message the writing was invisible until I highlighted it. I honestly don’t know if they got my message or not.
So, I am writing this post so that the person or persons who run Toy Newz will know that I am not happy with them. I don’t want them copying my posts with no explanation as to who wrote it even if there is a link back to my site.
If I have to, I will take further steps to stop this happening so Toy Newz please stop it now.
