I NEED YOU HELP

someone left me a  comment letting me know that they noticed a blogger
stealing all my photographs, words....

I can not tell you ha upset i am.. it is disheartning ... can someone tell me what to do

here is "her" blog

i do not speak the language

what do i do

UPDATE: I commented saying you are stealing my stuff and within seconds i could see at least 3 dozen of my stories, pictures disappear form her post... I going to keep this post up - why you might want to know- but see she got caught if anonymous who ever that person is.. did not elude me she would have kept going she stopped because she got caught... in a world where bloggers share freely, knowing within seconds you could link an image with proper attribution someone chooses to make something her own... how is that gratifying... she is cheating herself, while hurting me in the process...

she has now erased her blog except for the header which isone of my images and photografille blog title. this is very surreal to me.. i apologize dear friends i was floating you see, happy and this kinda side swipped me.....

oh no! i'm so sorry. ok, take a deep breathe: the link isn't working for me so can you tell me what language the other blog is in?

perhaps you should take some time to write to the blog owner in english, perhaps they will speak this language as well, especially if they have been translating your words. but take your time to think out what to say. maybe do a search for others who have had problems and how they handled it.

oh, i'm so so sorry!

I wasn't able to open the link you posted but I would email a cease and desist directly to the blogger - leave it up to her to translate. If she's punking your content then she can probably understand you if not the other way around. Contact the blog server if you don't get a response within 24h.

ok, link works now but i don't see any content on the blog.

a quick search brought me to this site which, if you scroll to the bottom, has some links that may give you some info: http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2006/10/12/applaud-those-who-warn-you-your-blogs-content-is-being-stolen/

corine said...

Oh what an ugly fraud. I was able to open her link but there wasn't much on it. It might have been erased.

a square peg said...

yes, it must have been erased--i saw nothing. kudos to the person who let you know about it. these are the risks we take when we share ourselves with the world i suppose. and you're totally right, she was cheating herself. those of us who try so hard to be ourselves will never understand those who try so hard to be someone else.

JanelleGrace said...

So she was stealing everything? Your entire posts? Weird. But thank goodness for those great people who catch it and tell you. Stealing other people's art is a horrible thing. It always scares me.

dia said...

It's ok sweetheart, take a deep breath. people who has known your blog will know your stuff when they see it, it is very easly recognizable. as for this person, it is sad to be so devoid of principle as to do that. in a way, she can see talent, but obviously she lacks scrupples. shame..shame on her. bravo, that someone had the integrety to let you know.

nadia said...

She has completely erased it now- thank you for your comments.. i think i was just in shock. I did have time to got to her link opf friemds only to find alot of my photograohs and words from onesilentwinter and others onthere blog with her recieving the credit. so i left them comment just saying that I was the i took them and i was the author....

okay i have to confess i am usually the knd of person that does nothing, and says karma will take care of them... but for some reason this was too much, flipping through months and months of her post only to see, titles, photgraphs and word for word of all mu content... shook me and i found myself saying " OH NO YOU DON"T"

thank you again...

karina said...

I can not open the link.
but I love blogging too muchi and it is needed a community of good bloggers.
big hug
I ll try to open it later

Aran said...

i understand completely nadia, i would react the same. it is normal. it is your work and very personal and emotional indeed. i hope it doesn't happen again!

Sara said...

unbelievable. how very sad that someone is that desperate that they would steal from your talents and personal feelings...i would have felt the same way. the internet is just so vast, who knows what is hiding in its corners...hopefully there is just one place where nadia's treasures can be found now. so sorry.

Stephanie said...

i can't believe the nerve of some people. i'm glad they at ;east had the decency to take it down.

sofia barão said...

Oh my God Nadia! This is such a nightmare, I'm so sorry but it looks like the blog has now been erased for good. This is awful, awful I can't believe she was using all of your photos and words.

If this happened to me I would have done the same you did, you've done it well.
Big hug, hope you are feeling better now Nadia.

kendalee said...

Oh Nadia, I'm sorry to hear this too. Especially on a day when you should just have been able to savour the wonderful Obamaness!!! I'm not surprised you felt side-swiped.

One really wonders what someone who does something like that really gets out of it? Surely even the praise that he/she probably received for your amazing words and images must feel hollow because he/she KNOWS they are not truly meant for them? Bizarre. At least we know that the world is not only full of strange, mean-spirited people.

I hope this doesn't sour the experience of blogging for you too much. As the comments above indicate, we all love what you do here and your exquisite pictures and sensitive soul are an every day inspiration to me! :)

Heather said...

that is atrocious. i'm so glad she took everything down and it's over now. how awful that must have been for you to see that :(

Erin Sledd said...

This is so incomprehensible to me . . . I am so glad this person was caught, so glad that you found out and stood up for yourself.

heidi said...

That is SO upsetting!!!! Karma WILL get her.

mainecarlhed said...

I'm very very sorry. I didn't know. As I usually speak swedish it's hard for me to explain what I think and feel right now. :(

muralimanohar said...

Wow...what on earth was she THINKING??? What a loser. :( Here's hoping she stays away.

Chris said...

This is very odd. What's the point of just copying someone's stuff onto your own blog? Then it's essentially YOUR blog under a different title. At least she's closed up shop, but who knows who she'll do it to next? Can you maybe contact the blog company it is run by to find out about her?

Claire said...

I know the feeling. I had someone plagiarise one of my academic papers. It is a horrible shock. I could not agree more with what one of your other commentators said: it is hard for those of us who appreciate uniqueness to understand those who don't. I have in fact reached a point of pitying them.

Ida said...

Dear Nadia.
I was me, I did it and i can't begin to tell you how sorry I am. Your pics was so beautiful and your words took me by storm. Never had i stumbeled upon someone who expressed themselves in they way you did. When I grew up, the children in my town were very mean, they took my childhood away and i was left with nothing but sadness. I tried several times to end my life when I was younger beacuse the lack of my love in my family but when I saw this blog i saw my chance to be appreciated and loved bur as you wrote i was only cheating myself. I took everything down and cried for hours on end. Karma will get me but I only have myself to blame. I will never as long I as I live blog again.
I am sorry for the pain that I have caused Nadia. I fully understand you anger and disapoinment and would give my everything to make it right. If you want to I can leave my phonenumber so we can talk it over?

dia said...

this is it I think, you know my motto everything happens for a reason. this "ida" maybe needs the help of a compassionate soul who will show her that you can get love and approval without resorting to shamefull means. Maybe this is your calling "to help" there is no greater joy than to feel you uplifted someone spirit, it's a beautiful feeling.

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

That is rotten.....it really stinks that there is no way to know when someone is doing something like that. I stumble upon a blog where I found them using one of my pictures one time.....I was infuriated, and sent the person many emails.....they finally took it down. You feel violated! Good thing with have extra sets of eyes in the blogosphere :o)

p.s. The last time I check that link to the other blog is completely disabled.

avant garde said...

yes contact blogger about her and hopefully since her blog appears to have disappeared, she's gotten the message already. and like chris said, what's the point of creating a blog that is not your own. people are strange.

Chessa said...

I should have read this post before the previous one. Something similar happened to me on facebook where someone was using my image as their profile avatar and I could not even get into their profile to see anything about them or what else they were using of mine. I sent her an email and told her to remove this immediately and less than three hours later, the profile was deleted completely.

Unfortunately these things happen online and there is no way to know when or by whom or how often. You are such a kind and compassionate person to react the way that you did in your post today. I wish I was not so cynical or I would immediately see the goodness and honesty in this person as you see it. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and she did indeed reach out to you but the truth is that what she did was stealing and this world wide web is large enough where you might never have known about it. I feel terrible that she has faced such awful things in her life. hopefully your kindness will touch her and stop her from doing something similar or worse in the future.

Mrs.French said...

ok, I officially missed all of this and am coming into this completely late...all I have to say is goodness, I am so sorry you had to go through this and I am just sad for this "ida" person...sounds as if she is very lost and perhaps a therapist is needed...I think you handled the situation with grace and integrity and at the very least, you can take that with you..xxoo t

Anonymous said...

I feelt that it was the right thing to do... To tell you about the stealing... It is so wrong. The blog was from sweden. But i have seen that it is gone now. Karma, karma, karma.
