Do’s & Don’ts
Blogging is hard work. And I mean, break-your-back-trying-to-get-that-perfect-shot, bang-your-head-in-frustration, shell-out-money-from-own-pocket-without-much-income kind of hard. So it sucks when people use your content without permission, whether it is photos, recipes, text or all of them. Having experienced plagiarism first-hand countless times, I guess it is time that I spelled out some particular do’s and don’ts to the denizens of the world wide web.
Do contact me before you would like to try and post my recipe on your blog.
While I don’t mind you doing that for some recipes (after all, no one can or should copyright a traditional spaghetti sauce or chicken tikka), please do not copy and paste the entire contents from my blog post. Please take the effort to make the recipe your own, add variations and write it in your own words. And don’t forget to link back, mentioning At The Corner Of Happy & Harried in full.
At the same time, I take special care in trying to stand out from the crowd and coming up with unique recipes. If you haven’t seen a similar recipe elsewhere, it is in all probability, a unique recipe which I developed, and it is absolutely not cool to post the same on your blog. When in doubt, please ASK!!
Do contact me if you want to feature my recipe in an article or roundup. I’d be happy to oblige, in most cases. Plus, letting me know in advance provides an opportunity for me to share your article on my social media handles. Win-win for all.
Do Not post my photos or recipes on your website, app or any Facebook page/group that exists solely by lifting off other people’s content without permission. If you want to use any of my work, you can do it the proper way and buy the rights to it from me!
Do Not contact me asking to publish your material on my website, place dubious links in my posts or advertise weird items like toilet tiles (true story, don’t ask!). While such emails make for witty reading, I’d rather use that time more productively. Thank you.
Do contact me if you are genuinely interested in getting to know me or working together. See more details on the Work With Me page.
