Sadje’s Sunday Poser — A Tip of the Hat

For her Sunday Poser today, Sadje wants to know…

Do you give credit to the blogger who inspired your post?

Yes, I do. If I write a post that is in response to another blogger’s prompt, I always link back the prompt (or prompts) that inspired my response. If inspired by a photo or image that another blogger used, I do the same.

If I’m not responding to a prompt, but to something another blogger posted about that inspires me to create my own post, I will definitely mention the blogger who inspired my post and, if applicable, link back to their post.

I would hope that other bloggers would do the same when responding to one of my prompts or to a post I published that inspired them. It’s common courtesy to do so. And rude not to do so.

    Absolutely right Fandango. It’s the proper etiquette

    When I do, I always credit. But I’ve had bloggers take my work and try to make something positive into a negative, and I hate that more than not being credited.

    I agree, it is common courtesy to acknowledge the bloggers whose prompts or ideas inspire your posts.
