Have you noticed the amount of deal bloggers out there? I would say that there are hundreds if not thousands of us. Every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, you will see this group of bloggers updating their blogs. They all reach different readers but their message is the same - go to this store, to get this deal!
Since our ads are so much the same, our deals look alike to the point that many of us look like we are copying one another. Most bloggers know that it is against the rules and poor etiquette to copy someone else's work with out giving credit. I try to give credit back to my sources as much as possible.
Today, it was brought to my attention that my Target deals look like another blogger's deals. The person was doing it out of kindness but was worried that I might be copying. When I reassured her that I was not, she said that I might want to change my format of doing the deals. I will not be changing my format because I think it is the most readable and have been doing this for over a year but this person did have a good point.
I have decided to point to this great blogger's blog every time I post my Target deals. I also thought I would reach out to each and every one of my readers with this. If you have thought that I was copying another's work, I apologize. I strive for honesty and integrity on my site. I would not expect to gain your trust if you thought I was plagiarizing someone else's work.
Thank you to the kind reader who pointed this out and to all of you who understand and know my heart.
