Can’t stand them Copy Cats!

First of all, I would like to apologise for being quiet all week, but it has been a very stressful week with work, with all the bad news (David Bowie, Alan Rickman), and I tried to stay away from social media as much as possible. In fact, I have been only active on instagram which you can have a look at and follow here: SteffiWorld 🙂

Anyway, onto my rant now…

Lately I have been realising that a certain someone has been copying my doings online, and note acknowledging me or even bothering to say they like it, before they do their twist of my posts. Sure, it is lovely to inspire people, but it sucks when people copy you straight up as if it was their own thing.

I know that who reads this, will quite possibly not understand my frustration and simply utter the words “welcome to the Internet! Nothing you do online is yours.” But why is it so difficult for people to admit inspiration, why can’t they ask for permission if they are not capable with coming up with their own ideas?

In the end, I actually feel sorry for them, because once their followers figure out what they’re doing, they shall hit rock bottom and lose all their recognition and popularity. What goes round comes around missy, you will pay in the end! Ha ha ha.

  1. First of all, never feel dispirited and keep up the good work 😉

    Very comprehensive, varied and full of interesting thoughts. Strange though it may seem, having people who copy, or imitate, you own work, is ultimately an accolade in its own right 🙂

    Unfortunately, in this digital era, it is far more easier to have somebody copy your own work – but don’t give up, and never be dispirited if someone tries to pass of your work as his/hers. Once their readers realize they have no jot of originality in them, and that they plagiarize their work passing it off as their own, you’ll see how quick they loose subscribers 😉

    And true…what’s wrong with this year?! We’re loosing iconic figures on a daily basis! Lenny, Rickman, Bowie…give us a break! At this rate all that’ll be left are the mediocre gits! Seriously!

    Now cheers, ‘cos I have an exam in the evening and I can’t remember anything! Need a coffee!
