Not Lovin' Bloglovin'

Dear Bloglovin',

Using my entire blog without my consent constitutes stealing of intellectual property. We all know that a certain amount of what people create can be used for educational purposes, etc. But having another website dominate another person's work without consent is despicable.

I first discovered your existence when I deleted certain contents from my blog, but I accidentally saw a clone of my blog complete with the contents I had deleted from my official blog. Bloglovin', you kept everything. Whatever I deleted from my blog did not matter. I sent an email to ask you to remove my blog posts, but years later, everything is still there.

This is a public request for you Bloglovin' to remove my entire blog from your collection of other stolen contents (mainly). I did not authorize you to display or use my content on your website. (Please note the copyright sign at the bottom). I do not want to share my blog with you. I do not want to claim what is mine on your website. I did not give the RSS feed explicit consent to give to you my work; it is for me to share my work with the public, not for you to possess. Contrary to what you have said, your site does not benefit me. It benefits you and that is the only reason you would take other people's work to feed your website. 

Please delete my blogs Day Laughs Night Cries and Conceive Writing from your site. 


Thank you.

    1. You are there too. I never requested to be on their list. They just take over your blog once you decide to make your blog public.

  6. I signed up for Bloglovin in the past. I wonder if they have done the same with mine?

  12. Sister, there are a lot of such blogs which copy/paste everything from other sites... I think it's automated, you know, somebody starts the blog, but then it just automatically steals your stories. I have at least ten such blogs around the net which copy everything exactly as it appears at HOLLYWOOD SPY even the formatting... they do it to get money from Google Ads and I haven't find the way to stop them

  17. Thanks to computer issues and a bit of playing hooky, the days quickly passed. But, to the present, big applause for your for speaking out. About two years ago, I stopped writing posts about growing up on the Louisiana farm because they were being stolen. So I really, REALLY feel for you. There's a lot out-right theft going on in Blogville, sometimes from seemingly benign bloggers who collect lists for This and That, which frosted me. Anyway, bravo for fighting the good fight!
