THIS IS NOW THE HOME PAGE OF ALBERTINA’S CROCHET BLOG.

DESPITE ALL THE CLEARLY STATED NOTICES ON THIS BLOG ASKING THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE ADDED TO PINTEREST VARIOUS IMAGES AND POSTS HAVE BEEN PINNED. THE HOMEPAGE HAS NOW BEEN PINNED WHICH MEANS THAT MY WHOLE SITE IS NOW ON PINTEREST. IN OTHER WORDS MY COPYRIGHTED ORIGINAL CONTENT HAS BEEN HANDED OVER WITHOUT PERMISSION TO ANOTHER SITE.

AS A CONSEQUENCE I AM OBLIGED TO TAKE ACTION AND HAVE ASKED PINTEREST TO REMOVE ANY LINKS. I MAY ALSO ASK THEM TO COMPENSATE ME FOR THE TIME THE PROCESS IS USING UP AND THE DISTRESS THIS IS CAUSING ME. THEY MIGHT HAVE TO PAY FOR ANY LEGAL COSTS INVOLVED. IF THAT HAPPENS THEY COULD END UP ASKING THE PERSON WHO PINNED MY CONTENT WITHOUT PERMISSION TO REIMBURSE THEM. THIS COULD PROVE TO BE VERY EXPENSIVE FOR THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE.

FOR THE TIME BEING I WILL BE ONLY BE ADDING PASSWORD PROTECTED POSTS. I AM HEARTBROKEN BECAUSE ONE OF THE REASONS I BLOGGED ABOUT CROCHET WAS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF VARIOUS CHARITIES THAT I SUPPORT AND I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS IF THE POSTS ARE NOT PUBLICLY VISIBLE. CHARITIES THAT SUPPORT VETERANS AND THE CHILDREN OF THE FALLEN ARE LOSING OUT BECAUSE OF THIS WHICH MAKES ME FEEL VERY UPSET AND ANGRY. ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS HELP THEM BUT THE SELFISH ACTIONS OF OTHERS HAVE STOPPED ME FROM DOING SO

PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE ADDING LINKS TO SITES LIKE PINTEREST. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE JOINING SUCH SITES BECAUSE THEY WILL REQUIRE YOU TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ADDING THIRD PARTY CONTENT WITHOUT PERMISSION.

I'd love to read your thoughts on this post...
