My Blog Was Stolen on MyBlogLog

This post is here to prove I am the author of this domain, not the man who has stolen it and posted it as his own on MyBlogLog.

He added my blog address to the list of sites he authors to profit from the traffic I receive...which at one point was fairly decent but has dwindled since I stopped writing. So hopefully he hasn't benefited from my thoughts and opinions.

I now have to do some other things to prove I am the author. What a loser! I shouldn't have to do this. Beware. Your site could be stolen, and you wouldn't even know it. He went to mybloglog.com, created a profile, and entered my blog address as well as almost 40 others. He's been tagged as a thief among other things because this is apparently all he does.

All the members who were in my community on MyBlogLog before I deleted it months ago were then transferred to him somehow. I don't know how he even steals community members. Several of you are on his list as members, but I didn't recognize any of the blogs he's stolen. That's not to say there aren't a million more where he came from. So heads up.

  • Jenn, there is a certain class of criminal that is a chronic pain in our butts. They move from one shifty enterprise to the next. I always thought that there should be a prison for chronic pests.

  • Huh? How do you find out if your blog is stolen. I don't think I have enough traffic to make it worth anyone's while.

  • I've pretty much ditched mybloglog since the big company bought it out. They changed passwords without notice and I got tired of the same old SEO-comeseeme-getmoretraffic-etc. If I want to play in more traffic (like my mother used to tell me), then I'll just go step out onto the turnpike.

    I can't find your avatar on my mbl page anymore. Guess that means he didn't steal my dirty hairballs.
