Plagiarism: It's not just for high school students
Thursday, January 16, 2014Posted by Melissa (Avid Reader)
Over the last couple years I've grown to love being a blogger. It's fun to chronicle your reading in a forum that allows others to suggest new books or share their opinions on the ones you've already read. There are a few drawbacks though. Recently I've seen a lot of people talking about plagiarism on their blogs. Shady bloggers will repost entire reviews on their sites! Seriously, who does that?
I'm no expert, but I've found a couple ways to check for plagiarism. There's one site called Grammarly that does the work for you. You can also search specific phrases or set up Google Alerts for your blog name. Really in the end you just have to hope that people create their own content instead of stealing your's.
What issues have you run into as a blogger?
