EVERYONE Please note!!
BLOGS are different from Tweets. Tweets are meant to go out to the world, they are not private.
Blogs are an author's property. They BELONG to someone.
They should be considered as copyrighted material.
RFF tries to be very responsible in crediting owners and their work.
We make EVERY effort to contact the owner of the blog and ask for permission to use their story and their pictures before using them. Most blog owners are very generous with sharing. BUT we always ask first.
Sometimes there is no way to contact a blogger, in that case we credit them, and LINK to their work.
SO please, check in with me before doing anything except linking to a blog? I can tell you where we stand with contacting the authors, or if it is new to us.
We all get excited with a new find, but ask okay? Thanks!!
Oval actually found the Osaka blog ...and we have been waiting (sorta) patiently to hear from them! SO hope they don't mind us Jumping the gun!
