I am not sure whether to be frightened or flattered. Like most of you, I have a site meter that counts the persons who stop by my blog. It tracks where they are from,what posts they visited, how long they stayed along with other interesting information. For quite a while now, I have had a strange visitor from a town in California.
They have been visiting my archives every day but not to read. Now that would really be flattering. However, they only sign on briefly. The meter actually only shows zero minutes, possibly only long enough to copy the post. I have no idea what value the ramblings of an old woman would be for they are personal recollections. This same ISP shows up 4 to 8 times every day, always on a different, random post.
Am I being plagiarized? Do I need to worry?? What can they possibly do with them?? Can they steal my whole blog?? Any way to find out who they are?? I realize my posts are copyrighted so that part doesn't worry me.
I know I can disable "right click" to deter copying, but that would not stop a computer savvy person. There are ways to get around that.
Has anyone had experience with this and are there any real concerns here or should I just feel flattered that someone likes my posts enough to go to all this trouble. I really would appreciate any help.
I am a little sad today. For me, baseball season is over. My Florida Marlins played their last ball game EVER on Wednesday. Next year, we will have a new stadium, new manager and new name. We will be the Miami Marlins. Somehow, that just doesn't roll off my tongue the same way. We lost the game today but the ceremonies were quite fun as the old ball players who started the franchise were brought back for the day. I did shed a tear or two but also smiled a lot.
Arkansas has no professional sport team and while I do love my University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team, only a few games are televised. I am facing a sports drought thus I am slightly depressed. Can I survive the next 7 months? Probably. Only good thing about aging is that time really flies when you get old. April will be here in no time and other things will entertain me till then.
I'll quit whining now.
