As you all know, I’m a little bit obsessed with WR.
The restraining order means I can’t live in the bush outside her house and use my binoculars to stare in the windows anymore, but that has not lessened my love for the dear girl.
She’s my Cyber Soulmate.
*waves at WR from across the street*
You can’t beat a good creepy start to a post.
I’m not one to keep my mouth shut when something or someone bothers me.
I am a big fan of fairness.
I should’ve been a judge….or a journalist….OH WAIT!
Actually WR only posted that same picture the other day.
It had a very similar caption too.
There’s no link to WR’s blog, so maybe it’s a coincidence?
Or maybe she’s a fan and just did something similar without noticing?
I left her a wee comment asking if she was separated from WR at birth because of their similar sense of humour.
She didn’t respond.
I forgot about it.
Then today I visited her blog and saw this:
Yes that is a comment from me underneath it (with a typo in it, of course) because I remembered seeing this exact same post with a nearly identical caption on WR’s blog ages ago.
I remember it because I found it particularly hilarious being a Posed Picture person:
And it’s one of many that are quite similar to our WR’s Photo of the Day posts.
I just think it’s disgraceful.
I mean I see a lot of bloggers copy little things from other people, such as little phrases or ideas, but never this blatantly!
How does she sleep at night!?
My blog pictures come from my Flickr and Tumblr accounts and while I don’t link the original source directly from this blog (get’s messy), I do link the photos to the original source on Tumblr and Flickr (it’s not hard…they’re nearly all from WeHeartIt).
And while not crediting a picture is one thing, stealing words and entire ideas is another.
I always link posts or blogs that have inspired me.
Hell, I’d no problem linking all of Kaleena’s posts here!
I’m that fair.
So I’ll see if she replies.
Maybe it’s a huge misunderstanding.
Somehow, I doubt that….
EDIT 1: WR has told me she’ll retract the restraining order for the Irish Blog Awards in March…YAY *practices hair stroking techniques*
EDIT 2: And the blog in question appear to have been removed….did someone report her, because there really wasn’t any need for that.
EDIT 3: Kaleena has sent WR an apology for using her posts without crediting her. Nobody seems to have reported her (thank God….dramatic much if someone had!?) and she may be making it a private blog now which is why the link seems to be gone, but I’m not sure of the details yet.
EDIT 4 –A Word from The Rabbit: Kaleena and I have had a little chat and she apologised for the whole situation. She seems like a nice person and I don’t think she meant any harm. She has made her blog private but I hope she brings it back because aside from the situation, I actually enjoyed reading it.
EDIT 5: (I’m starting to feel like Old Skool Hyperbole and a Half with all these ‘edits’) Kaleena’s blog is back to normal and she’s taken down the stolen material that was highlighted here…I still saw a few WR posts left though. Also there’s no sign of the post she said she’d do on her blog letting her readers know what she’s did and attributing the work to WR.
