Just kidding. 😉
But, seriously, these will make things easier for everyone. If you have questions, comment on this page or email me at [email protected].
I don’t mind if you use my info. It’s not “mine” anyway. We’re all talking about Winx Club, right?
But please write your own article. Don’t re-post mine — especially not the Musings & Rants posts, since those are my opinions. If you agree (or even disagree) with me, leave a comment!
It’s annoying when someone sticks my words on their site and says, “I agree because…” or “she’s right/wrong because…” Unless that’s your point — for example, I said something that upset you.
This isn’t The Associated Press. Even if we agree, we express ourselves differently.
Quoting me is fine; I’m flattered you think something I said is worth quoting! But if you do, please:
- Make it clear it’s a quote. Mention the author or the blog.
- Put the quote in italics or quotation marks, or use the blockquote HTML code (especially for large quotes). (You only have to do one of these things. I’m not that excessive.)
- Link back to the post where the quote came from or to the blog itself. This is the most important rule. You know how teachers make us write “Works Cited” pages with our research papers? Link-backs are like those.
- Don’t quote me quoting someone else. Link back to their article instead.
- Don’t quote half my post; I’d rather you linked to it or cut down the size of the quote.
If you need an example of what I want, see this article on Winx-Fairies. You don’t have to do everything the author, Stella Solaria, did (like plugging my blog, which was very kind). Here is the article she quoted from. She only took one line from my translation of Roxy’s profile and wrote an article that looked nothing like mine. Even though we both mentioned Roxy’s mother, I focused on what happened to her and she focused on who she might be.
The bottom line: let’s be ourselves. Be original. We all are.
