Stealing work from other writers is unlikely to earn you any money. Nor will it endear you to the rest of the community. I am a professional blogger, and I hate people who steal my work - or other people's work. I have flagged your hub:
You have to pay to take articles from About.com. I found this on their site:
"To apply for reprint permission electronically, simply complete the form below, and you will be contacted by a representative with further details within 3-4 business days.
When we have received your request, we will quote you a fee. After you have agreed to the fee, you may proceed with the reprint and we will send you an invoice at the beginning of the following calendar month. All invoices are payable upon receipt.
Please be advised that all permissions are for one time use. "
everyone is saying that i will flag your hubs , just think yourself that how many bloggers and how many hubbers those who are using here are true writers i just want money making so i am copying them .
If you are the original writer then inform me that it is belongs to you and where have u posted then i will verify that and will add your name and that blog too.
All of you people dont be stupid if you need to say anything to me just suggest me dont use any stupid words here if you dont like them then tell me i will remove them from here.
snehamadhuri, you should delete hubs that are copied, This site is for serious writers and you would end up annoying others.
this site is surely about making money but not by copying, rather by being honest and by being a helper writer.
if you copy it, you should explicitly mark it copied. In one of my hubs, about real-estate, i copied the text from a site and just experessed to readers that this is not my stuff but from a realtor (and the realtor site provides the permission to copy). I had refrenced the realot also but was flagged as promotional by hubstaff. So i modified the hub to still include content but to let people know that I copied. this is respectful to the writer and avoid people judging you as a writer
be a gneuine person to yourself and to the writers community. Would maintain mutual respect. Do not loose your temper. make money but with efforts not by stealing.
if you have small articles, add multiple articles in one hub that people can enjoy.
My dear sister,its never too late.we are all open to mistakes and we learn every day.no one is perfect but we are all working hard for perfection .You are welcome to hubpage .Now that you know your mistakes,start doing the right thing.i believe in you.
Igreed, and you know what is happening also? People still your article from your website and them comes to the blogs and post them, when you want to post your own articles you can't becasue the person whom posted first and stole from you is the winner and you the owner get a dupplicate or spam for your own writting
However, you still need to get permission before you post someone else's article. Even if you mention who wrote it. Some sites, like About, will charge you money to use their material. Like Ehow, they do not allow anyone to just copy their articles.
You can check my hubs or any other hubs if you cant able to create your own articles. Try someother things. But your honestly said. If you can delete those things and write your own stories, poems, pictures, videos, many more thing you can write from that. Try this. This can help you.
