    I searched Google for information about copyright infringement, fair use, and using Facebook screenshots in our blog posts. I believe using Google screenshots, especially those in public forums, is fair use or gray area at worst. What I learned is that it’s best to check Facebook’s Terms of Service because in some cases your posts are yours to…[Read more]

    • Fair use is determined also by how you intend to use it. For example if it’s a new story then that is fair use, but if it’s for commercial use or in a defamatory sense then it probably would stand up as a defense.

      To me, if you are taking a screen shot of the photo you like, it is like stealing! And if I don’t like people to steal my photos or my articles, I won’t do it to others.

      Whatever you use in your posts, your sites to earn money, it is commercial use, and you must have permission to use it, or legal matter is what you will face.

    Since we have new faces on BlogJob, I think it’s worth asking: Is anyone interested in writing about books, movies, and/or the business of writing? I feel a little lost in the wave of new faces and want to see if anyone writes in my niches so I can start meeting similar people and get to know some of you better.

    • I like giving my 2 cents on music and movies every now and again and like reading other writer’s posts about these. In particular, at this moment I have been watching 2 series of interest to me via HULU, ‘11.22.63’ and ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ just the most recent that I have been viewing. As far as music, I usually check out music from YouTube and…[Read more]

    • I have my own writer’s blog under another pen name where I vent my frustrations and dilemmas from writer’s wrist to punctuation.

    BuzzFeed’s slogan is “Smart. Interesting. Emojis.” Emojis are cute, but their use is anything but smart. BuzzFeed is trying to appeal to a younger crowd, but they’re really turning off those of us who want actual news and no emojis.

    My biggest issue right now is that I want to write for decent pay. It seems like all the sites that were good in the past are gone or don’t pay very well any more. Sigh…

    If I were to channel my hatred of the two godawful celebrities into writing a particular piece of fiction that’s been brewing in my mind for some time, I bet I could produce a halfway decent novella. It starts out pretty bizarre in which a 20-something woman is hurting because her 30-something former babysitter and best friend (currently a…[Read more]

    I feel so frustrated with my inability to write anything! Even fiction snippets aren’t happening! I can’t go on hiatus again, but I don’t have anything to contribute!

    I’m having another day of being inspiration-drained. I do want to blog eventually, but there’s nothing in my mind for good topics. Yesterday I talked way too much about books (which was a good thing, don’t get me wrong) and today it’s like…nothing.

    One thing that bothers me in entertainment media: If all characters (villains, anti-heros, and heros) are lying to further their agendas, why is it only bad when the villain is lying? A lie is a lie.

    • That is a really good point. And, there my friend, is some inspiration for something to write about. I bet you can take this topic and run with it. 🙂
