Righting a Wrong...

Since posting How Blogging Has Changed, it would seem that all is not well in Europe's part of Blogville.

I had listed the Top Five bloggers, after having a nosy through the new blogs, and simply wrote what I saw. However, it would appear that Blogville has been duped.

So, to this end, I am righting a wrong. Samantha192... you may be young and pretty, but stealing someone else's writing is just not on! I have taken a look at the website mentioned, and yes, it's there for all to see. You have been copying, almost verbatim, someone else's creative material, and there is nothing worse in Blogville.

Yes, there are those "cut and paste" moments we all have, when we're sharing funny emails and jokes, but when it comes to your own thoughts and emotions, some of us have gone through so much before pouring our hearts out on here.

That means, in my mind, the Top Five Bloggers in Europe list now looks like this!

Top of the list is Blogville's favourite bum... er, that should read bum shot! Papyrina has been drawing in the crowds with Papys diary almost since blogging on A F F began, and she's still going strong. Well done, Papy, and I, along with many others, wait to see what your pert little
will be saying next!

Second on the list, and newcomer (well, for me, anyway) is the lovely TabithaElectra79. London seems to be the hot-bed of blogging talent in Europe right now, and a read through Sweetest Thing certainly cements my view. It doesn't hurt, of course, that Tabitha is also very easy on the eye ... TabithaElectra79 , as I am sure you'll agree!

Third on the *real* list is my new pal Babel__Fish, who is an American living in Belgium. Babel brings a new and rather interesting dimension to Blogville with ♥♥ Please and Serve ♥♥, which lets us take a peek into her life which she happily shares with her Master. Don't be fooled... Babel__Fish is a smart woman, and this comes through in her writing!

I'm rather pleased that freetime648 comes in next on the list, as it won't be long before Free will be leaving Europe and heading back to Idaho, home of the humble spud, or so Free would have us believe! >>Spoons and Smiles... Always!<< has always been a wonderful read, and finally meeting Free in February was just the icing on the cake for me. Suddenly, this blog came alive and while I may not have as close a friendship with freetime648 as some of the other Euro Hot Tubbers do, I shall certainly be crying just a little when she takes her family (including the adorable Poot) back with her. We have one last visit on the cards, because Heaven alone only knows when I shall get the chance to go spudding!

Fifth on the *real* list is HBowt2 who hails from Ireland. I've seen HBowt2 around in the comments of other blogs, so we must be watching the same blogs, lol, and I shall be making more of an effort to read her blog too. First I have to remove the blog of a not-so-honest blogger from My Watched List!!

So, there we have it. Europe's *real* Top Five Bloggers! Still an awesome read, and if you've not had the pleasure, be like me, go make yourself a coffee, sit down and get reading!! You won't be disappointed... I promise!

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Since posting this blog, I see that Samantha192's blog has been removed in its entirety. Can't say I'm surprised. She's also back to being a standard member... guess the shine went out of her silver pretty pronto!

Let this be a lesson to all of us. Give credit where credit is due, if you've not written a piece yourself. We're not talking cut 'n paste jokes from emails, but literature where the reader may be forgiven for thinking YOU had written it.

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

She's not the first on this site to do that and she won't be the last ... but thankfully, when they try, someone will expose them and enlighten all of us ... good work !
