Carrot, apple and beet juice for health

Carrot, apple and beet juice for health

I have been missing out on my blogging again lately. Too many things to do in too short a time. I have learned that if we find that 24 hours a day is not enough everyday, then we are just too busy. Life is not meant to be that way. So, I’m taking time off to relax a little today to get charged up and refreshed.

Thanks very much to everyone for visiting my blog and all your lovely comments in my previous post. I read each one of them. Reading comments always brings smiles. Will catch up on your blog soon.

I got up this morning and was shocked to read a comment and an email from my dear blogger friend, Cheah from No-Frills Recipes. I am so thankful to her. I just have to blog about it. It’s again about stealing. This time it’s not content theft but photo theft!! I was horrified and yet amused. It is on blogs and also circulating through emails around the world!!!

The post is about “Miracle Drink : Carrot, Potato And Apple”. The pictures were stolen from my post Carrot Apple And Beet Juice For Health. I thought it so mindless to use my pictures when the post does not mention about beetroot and my juice does not contain potato. You can find the stolen pictures here at In The Emails and Cancer Health Centre. I’m sure there are more. I have already informed the site owners. You will notice that  a lot of these types of sites do not have an About or Contact page. They want to remain anonymous. So be on the look out! These sites use stolen content and pictures to make money from advertisements placed on their blogs. They can even sell your pictures. The Blog Herald has a good post about 6 Steps to Stop Content Theft.

That’s all from me for this post. Hope all of you have a wonderful week. 1/4 of the year is gone. Hope you have made good use of your time. Have fun in what you do and Keep Smiling!

Jasmine  on April 7th, 2011

oh dear . . that’s not nice of those people! but that also mean that yours is extremely awesome (:

claire  on April 7th, 2011

Hi Mary.. sorry to hear that, yeah, Cheah also emailed to me informing me that.. I wonder whether mine are “stolen” too..
On the positive note, that means your posts are very much admired by those “them” …

Nate @ House of Annie  on April 7th, 2011

It’s nice to have blogger friends looking out for you!

LeQuan  on April 7th, 2011

Hi Mary,

As usual I’ve visited those sites and left a comment on each. Here’s what I wrote (of course waiting for modification…argh!).
“The picture doesn’t match the blog post because this is a stolen picture and I think it’s very rude of you to steal someone’s picture from their blog and erase their name from it to use it as your own picture!!”
The weird thing is that I actually saw your comment and email after I commented. How strange. When I refreshed the page, it was gone. Hope you can take your minds off these people, Mary. You have much better things going on than to let these types of people annoy you. Keep smiling my friend, just keep smiling. A smile can go a very long ways, see —> :-D. All the way from Canada. And a big hug too!

They are pest!! I hate it and I think they’ve got nothing better to do than stealing or peeping at other people’s blog!!

Priya  on April 7th, 2011

Its really pathetic,so sorry to hear this Mary..

love2cook  on April 7th, 2011

This is a nonstop theft. I too seen my photos in other blogs. So fed up of this, I added a gadget to my blog, so that none can right click at any part of my blog to save the photo or content.

Suman Singh  on April 7th, 2011

So sorry to hear this Mary..
Love the beautiful color of the juice, looks delicious and healthy too..thanks for sharing dear..Tk care!

Belinda @zomppa  on April 7th, 2011

I can’t believe it! (though the photo is so good, I can see why they stole it). I don’t know why they don’t just source it?

Drick  on April 7th, 2011

well Mary, so they didn’t even get the recipe right either huh?,,,, talk about lazy…

5 Star Foodie  on April 7th, 2011

I’m so sorry about the pictures. Hope you’re back to blogging soon, we miss you here.

Little Inbox  on April 7th, 2011

Same happened to my old blog. Ppl stole my pictures and my writings too. Sigh…

lena  on April 7th, 2011

yeah, i rcvd email from cheah informing us about this too. Sorry to hear that again. for profit motives, i think that’s really unethical!

peteformation  on April 7th, 2011

These people just ride on others work!

Angie's Recipes  on April 7th, 2011

Mary, I am so sorry to hear about this again…it happened to you so often. :-((( So terrible.

Pepy @Indonesia Eats  on April 7th, 2011

So sorry about that Mary! I have been in the same situation quite often. I know it’s hard, some people just don’t get it. If it’s on the internet it doesn’t mean people can use it without any permission.

Ginny Hartzler  on April 7th, 2011

Glad to see you back, good that you are putting your life before blogging!!

redkathy  on April 7th, 2011

At least your posts and photos are impressive enough to steal! JK Mary, we all could use a bit of joking to lighten up a bad situation.
In all seriousness, these people really have a lot of nerve. They changed the recipe name hoping you wouldn’t notice???

Love the recipe!

sweetlife  on April 7th, 2011

someone took one of my pics also, panckaes..I think they searched blackberry panckaes and my image popped up and they simply inserted in their blog, I commented but they never took it down..sorry it sucks when you work hard at taking pics

Blackswan  on April 8th, 2011

Oh Mary, why does it always happen to u? I’m so sorry. That’s one reason why I put my “signature” across the pix to stamp my foodprint. Hahaha! It’s very individual. Some may not like the idea as it cuts across the pix.

I think you’re too popular, Mary. No one wants to steal mine. Hahaha!

Pachecopatty  on April 8th, 2011

How frustrating! They should make their won juice and photograph it instead of lifting your photos, sorry this happens;-(

penny aka jeroxie  on April 8th, 2011

I’ve given up…. there seems to be no way to stop these people

tigerfish  on April 8th, 2011

Oh yes, that theft thing is so widespread…seems that it does not stop. When one site stops , another pops up…:(

Ivy  on April 8th, 2011

I am sorry they did this to you. I really get frustrated when they do this to me. You have taken it very well Mary. Contact their host if they do not remove your content.

Zibi  on April 8th, 2011

i guess some people still think that copying is the best form of flattery…

Hopefully they will be embarrassed enough to remove your photos… or at least link to your post with the correct recipe *sigh*

teresa  on April 8th, 2011

sorry to hear about the stolen pics! how lousy!

Magic of Spice  on April 8th, 2011

Sorry to hear about your pics…so rude!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

uncle Lee  on April 10th, 2011

Hi Mary, regret to read of the thefts. But this happens all the time. Not easy to stop it.
I do take certain precautions and as well track whoever down to say he or she did wrong by not asking permission.

How you doin’? You have a nice day and keep well. Best regards. Lee.

Thas  on April 15th, 2011

This is just ridiculous, not just they stole your picture, misleading people with wrong recipe, shame on them! Anyways, this is one awesome drink.

zurin  on April 16th, 2011

this is a good post. Thank you for all the info. So kind of you. So sorry to hear about your foto theft.Hope it doesnt ahppen again :(

MamaFaMi  on May 10th, 2011

Hello Mary,

I posted your photo along with the article about this drink in my blog after finding it useful. The article was sent to my email and I thought of sharing it with others. I’ve written your link under each photo. But if you are not happy with that, please let me know and I will remove it from my blog ASAP. I do respect your rights as the owner of the photos. My main intention is just to share the useful information with my visitors. I’ll be waiting for your response. Thank you and my apologies to you.

Mary  on May 11th, 2011

@MamaFaMi - Thanks very much for informing me about the circulating email with my photos. Thanks very much for linking to me though it still amuses me to think that my photos actually don’t fit the article. I wonder why the author of the article used my photos though. However if you think that the photos are nice for your blog, I really don’t mind and appreciate very much that you informed me. Happy blogging and hope you have a wonderful day!
