First and foremost, I would like to say that every blog on this site belongs to me under copyright protection. It is my own intellectual property.
Disclaimer: As I mentioned before, everything on this blog is my own intellectual property. This means that it is covered by a copyright ensuring that it belongs solely to me. If you wish to use an excerpt or post or quote me you must either contact me via my personal e-mail on this page or include my name with the article along with a link back to my blog. Under the copyright laws I may sue someone for copyright infringement for stealing ideas or simply copying and pasting any part or the whole of one of my blogs onto a site and claiming it to be his or her own. I work hard to write and update this site. If you respect my cause and me, you will ask permission or mention my name along with a link back to this site when using one of my blogs, a piece of one of my blogs or quoting ANY of my writing on these blogs. Remember that Blogger and Wordpress have time stamps on their posts which clearly show when I have uploaded a post. Also, notice the use of the "© Megan Snider" at the start and end of each of my blogs. This is to show that all of this is my actual and original bona fide work. I do check to see if people use my blogs. If they include my name and a link redirecting them to my blog, it does not bother me. If they do not do this, it bothers me a great deal. Simply know that according to attorneys, I retain the intellectual copyright to my own ideas. If you are going to be underhanded with me and try to steal, I will pursue. My writing means a great deal to me and all of the research provided here is free and from intensely studying things or experiencing some myself.
If you wish to borrow one of my articles or provide a link to it, I have no problem with you doing so. I do, however, require that you would include my name along with the article excerpt. Writing is a passion of mine and I'd like to generate hits and showcase some of my better articles concerning mental health on this site. I have noticed that some sites have picked up a few of my articles, which amazes me. I'd like to see my name included with the article, if at all possible. I am working as a Freelance Writer/educator and would like this site to lead to other opportunities if that is possible.
Also, please take into account that all of the work on this blog is my own intellectual property. Therefore, it is all protected by copyright laws. If you "hijack" or steal from my blog, as others have done in the past, I will contact you and ask that you include my name.
I would PREFER it if you would ASK before using an article or post. I have included my personal e-mail on this site, so you are free to e-mail me. I will reply to your e-mail as soon as I can. I am not writing any of this to be mean, however; this is both love and work. I can't simply let people disrespect all of the time, effort, study, and experiences I have gone through to create this site.
Thank you and have a nice day!
