I got a smack yesterday. Im kinda still reeling from it.
I did something I totally didnt realise was wrong, got pulled up and now am not sure where I am.
A week or so ago, I blogged about the most amazing kids book I had found. I shared a story on how it linked so perfectly to my little perfectionist child. I posted some pics of the book. I linked to where you can buy it ( and I know that at least 7 people did just that).
Yesterday I found a comment that must have come after that blog and I somehow missed it, saying I should be careful, saying I had breached copyright by posting some photos of the book on my blog, saying I could be fined ( a huge amount as well) and that I was a hypocrit as I have on my blog "dont take my photots without permission". That I should watch myself.
In my defense, I had no idea I couldnt post photos of a book page. Ive seen it all the time on blogs. I have the copyright on my photos so people dont take the photos of my kids. Someone once took some photos of Jumeirah in her ballet costume and sent them to some dancer in Russia to have in her "collection" and I felt really weird about it.
So now I feel flat. And Im not really sure I want to blog at all anymore. I know, its not much, and really, I am open to critism having a blog in the world at all, but I really dont want to ever get slapped with some fine or whatever when I didnt know and my blog is supposed to be harmless and ultimately, just for me.
So Im here, but not sure if I want to be.....
How do you cope with blog critism? Or have any of you been slapped like me?
