Years and years ago, when I had time for such stuff, I wrote several articles and posted them around the internet on one or two of the article sites.
A while ago, I decided to do a blog outside of Active Rain that was more under MY control.
I’ve taken some of the stuff I wrote years and years ago and / or on Active Rain to put on that blog to get it started.
Today, while checking to see site statistics for that site, I wanted to see if Google had picked up the new site yet.
So, I took a random sentence out of the middle of one of the articles Home Fire Safety](https://sites.google.com/site/kentuckyhomeinspections/home-safety-tips/home-fire-safety) posted on the new site to see if it would come up on Google.
“When you move into a used home, you have no way of knowing how old the detectors are”
It didn’t surprise me that it came up on several of the “Article” sites out there, with attribution. That’s one of the reasons I wrote it.
What did surprise me was the home inspectors who now lay claim to that same article.
The Home Inspection Information Site uses it without attribution and some slight editing.
Maybe they hired the same guy to do their websites and don’t know about what he did)
Maybe I’ll write 'em something nasty, maybe not. But then maybe I just wrote this to embarrass them and to drive some traffic to my blog.
Ah well, what the hell. I wrote it to spread it around.
It’s a wonderful day when you wake up in the morning!
