Has Your Content Been Stolen?

Has your content been stolen? This can happen to any honest blogger who is always writing posts by himself. Someone might simply take advantage out of it and steal whatever posts he likes. There are at least a few different ways you can react in such situation:

1. Remain silent and do not do anything while telling yourself that you do not care about it. Sometimes if is not worth to do anything about it.
2. Contact the scraper by email and ask him to remove the stolen content from his blog. The problem is that he might not listen to you. Sometimes it might be even hard to find a way to contact him.
3. Use a WordPress plug-in (such as RSS footer from that will automatically link back to your site from the website of a scraper where he published your post. This plug-in might be very useful if you want to stay informed about any attempts of stealing your content. Of course, simply knowing about your content being published somewhere will not remove it.

Overall, there are not many things you can do if your content is being stolen by some unknown website. On the other hand, webmasters of popular websites may be afraid that you might spread the news of what they did.

Watching TV on Your PC

An average American watches TV for more than 4 hours per day, and since it seems that this is the most popular form of entertainment, it is important that people should be able to access it from many places. The logical place where you could also access TV programming is your own PC. While the TV screen is usually larger than a monitor, it is often more convenient to be in front of your computer, instead of TV. By buffering videos using a fast broadband connection, this is entirely possible and there are programs which allow watching TV on your own PC. Buffering allows you to pause, fast-forward or rewind if you feel like it. Additionally, there are countless sites like Youtube which allow anyone to share his videos with others.

Features of Blogger

I don’t know how many of Blogger hosted bloggers realized it, but Blogger allows bloggers to implement a slideshow tool element. Even if you heard about it, you might not know to implement it on your blog. It is quite simple, and I am going to tell you how to do it. This will be especially helpful if you have a Template link on your Blogger dashboard instead of the Layout link. Like I mentioned before, it is quite easy and all you have to do is find your blog on the dashboard, click the template link next to it, click on “customize your design” tab, and finally click on upgrade your template. After you have chosen a new blogger template for yourself, you will see the layout link on the Blogger dashboard, and you will be able to take advantage of the slideshow element.

Number of Readers

Google Reader has a feature of showing how many readers are subscribing to an RSS feed. The number of subscribers can be seen by searching for a blog after clicking the ‘Add Subscription’ link once you are logged into your Google Reader account. The subscription numbers only reflect the number of subscribers through Google Reader, not all subscribers. Nonetheless, it is an interesting way to compare blogs and monitor some trends. Of course, blogs that post about Google Reader on a regular basis due to the nature of their blogs will probably have an advantage. While some claim that sometimes the number of subscribers is not that important, I do not think a webmaster should completely ignore this aspect of their blog.

Often bloggers ask the question what to do in order to be able to maintain a large reader base. I think one of the best ways to approach this dilemma is to try to imagine what would make you read somebody else’s blog. In my case, I believe the most important aspect of a blog that I would visit would be the fact that it would be useful to me. It might be useful in different ways, but it is important that it would be useful in some way. For example, I might want to visit a blog that provides accurate, and well-timed news, or a blog that offers some valuable advice that is hard to obtain, as it requires experience or expertise. Ask yourself the question: what makes you visit other blogs, and try to do the same as other blogs do.
