Hey everybody! There are a couple things that I want to touch on at the moment and I wanted to take a separate blog post to do it rather than adding it onto one of my usual posts.
Firstly, as you may or may not know, last week I was alerted to a blog that was stealing my ENTIRE blog posts and tons of them (over 30!). The blogger even reposted images of my face and acted as if they were her own. I'm sure you can understand how angry and creeped out I was (and still am). I have filed a complaint with Blogger and I know a couple other bloggers did as well, so I'm waiting to see what they can do about it. I know running a blog is not the hardest job ever and I do get enjoyment out of it, but it does take a decent amount of effort and I'm not a fan of people blatantly ripping off my work like that. This is the reason why right-clicking is currently disabled on The Nail Network. I'm sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause my readers, but I had to feel like I was doing something pro-active to stop this copying from happening. I also know that this doesn't prevent copying completely, but again, I wanted to feel like I was doing something. I hope you all can understand the reasoning behind this and look past this small inconvenience for the time being. I want to take some time to calm down and think about this situation before I enable right-clicking again and I hope you can appreciate that.
Secondly, I will be going back down to posting three times a week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) starting this week. I am starting classes again next Monday and I will be moving out of my house sometime in the next two weeks or so, so I have a lot on my plate and unfortunately blogging has to be put at the end of my priority list. I really enjoyed posting so often this summer and I wish I could continue to do so, but I don't handle stress very well and I don't want to get into a situation where I'm sacrificing my academic effort in order to blog five times a week. I'm sure you all can understand where I'm coming from and I thank you for that.
So that's what is going on with me on this fine Sunday. Thank you to those of you who took the time to read this and I will see you again for tomorrow morning's post! :)
