Common Courtesy

Dear Everyone,

I respect and appreciate the fact that you follow me. I would not say that if it weren’t true. However, the latest reblogging craze has been driving me INSANE. It is not any one person in particular, it’s just the nature of the beast, so to speak.

If you take the time to read my About page, there is a disclaimer asking you to check with me first if you’re not sure if I’d be cool with something being reblogged. I don’t mind if it’s a quote or something I have shared for everyone to enjoy, but if it’s a photo I took the time to locate, or one I took myself, then please ask first. If it’s my work, which is 100% copyrighted, ask, because I own the copyrights to my work and the photos I take, and I will not hesitate in asking that you remove it if I have not approved it.

I reblog very little here, but when I do, it’s to show respect to the amazingly gifted friends I have made here, or to share health related stories. If anyone ever took offense to that, I know they would come to me privately and ask me to remove it, and I would, because I respect them.

Please, lets all show one another the respect we’re deserving of.

Thank you,

Lisa
