I noticed some things that upset me this morning about blog sites
http://www.jalopnik.com and http://www.gizmodo.com
I check my site traffic constantly and suddenly I noticed some of my
traffic coming from these sites so I checked it out. Jalopnik.com used
my pics and they did credit me at the end of the story but then I also
noticed their article had over 6,000 hits. my website not even close.
The best part was that gizmodo and a few other blogs used the same
article but credited jalopnik.com for it and not me.
To make things worse, when I first submitted my work on my blog I
immediately created a digg for it. over the last 5 days i only had 10
diggs. this morning I wake up and jalopnik.coms article was dugg with
my photo and it was in this mornings top in all topics on digg.com. I
wrote digg and twitted to them too on how upset I was about this.
AFter I discovered Jalopnik.com was using my work I contacted them to
assure them they can use my photo as long as I Was credited properly.
Which they did. The other sites who were using their article werent. I
wrote to them as well. Gizmodo was the only one who changed thier
credit to me. you can witness the transactions on my twitter and
theirs twitter.com/quintano_media and twitter.com/jalopnik.com
