How to Share What You Love From a Blog

Christy from http://www.southernplate.com/ wrote a fabulous post about how properly to share recipes we find online here http://www.southernplate.com/2013/04/how-to-support-your-favorite-food-bloggers.html  While her post deals with the problem of food bloggers, the same thing applies to quilting bloggers.  Our pictures get copied and posted to other blogs, pinterest or facebook where they are claimed by others as theirs.  Not cool.  Christy shows how to properly post/blog about something you find on someone else's blog or facebook.  Now, I don't blog for monetary reasons, but I would be very unhappy if my posts or pictures turned up somewhere else without my permission.

Check out Southern Plate - Christy has great recipes, a fabulous sense of humor and writes fun posts with yummy pictures!  And do read her post on supporting your favorite food-bloggers...and remember it really applies to all bloggers :)

Quilt on and may your thread never get tangled!!
