Some bloggers are fiercely protective of their ideas and actively discourage others from copying them. I am NOT one of those bloggers. All the original content contained in this blog is there to be used, copied, built upon, modified, redistributed, and enjoyed however the reader sees fit.
If you decide to repost or link to one of my essays, or write your own post inspired by or incorporating some of my thoughts, let me know in the comments and include a link to your page! Why? Because if you're the sort of person who likes my ideas, I might very well like yours. Even if you mainly just call attention to things you like rather than writing your own, there's probably something there I'd appreciate. I also like to see how other people take an idea of mine and run with it, even turning it into something I barely recognize. Constructive criticism is welcome, too.
I also try to give credit where it's due when I build on someone else's ideas, but sometimes I can't recall where I learned them in the first place. If you see something here that riffs on an idea from another blog and I haven't cited a source, please let me know so I can give them proper credit!
