Copyright Policy

I appreciate that some of you find my articles interesting and wish to share them with your friends on forums and discussion boards. There are many ways you can share but copying is not the right way to do it! We have social media sharing buttons on every article for your convenience! If you copy and paste our articles or republish them as your own, you’re infringing on my copyright. (It’s like taking and using my CAR without asking. NOT COOL!) I really do not appreciate my pictures posted at your site without my permission too even if there is a link back. There is no value add for me; please remember that I took time to generate my content and the whole idea is to have people read my content HERE ON THE BLOG!

If you like my blog and you feel you could be a great addition to our team, please EMAIL ME. Don’t go and start your own blog, give it a similar name (ie. The Chic Housewife) and copy the whole entire idea of our website. Seriously, we are so tired of seeing copycats ripping off our blog. I have worked so hard and for many years on this blog and I don’t appreciate people starting blogs with similar names, stalking my posts and writing about the same things I am and copying my blogs motto and slogan almost verbatim. C’mon! Be original!! Those of you that ARE doing this right now, I am watching you, collecting information and I WILL be bringing all of it to my lawyer. Copyright infringement is NOT COOL. You’re going down.
