A Plea To Fight Plagiarism & Winner Of Only Event Of October & New Winner For September Event

 

Hi all!!

My apologies for not being active here and the delay in announcing winners. There were several issues to be resolved at the home front; firstly the underground gas pipeline leak due to which we were devoid of LPG for 3weeks and cooking had become a herculean task but somehow I sailed through. Around the same time the younger kid fell sick and then the others in the family continued keeping me further away from active cooking and blogging. I was about to rebound and start posting when I discovered something very disturbing and annoying due to which I decided not to blog for a while…

Friends please understand I’m feeling hurt and cheated. We bloggers work really hard to create recipes and click pictures but some people want instant success and money, for which they do not hesitate to copy some one’s hard work and post it as their work. My blog has been completely copied (almost all my posts) and used by this blog called second life, resulting in my battle against plagiarism and also a continuous correspondence with google to get the blog blocked.

 

I would request all my readers to please help us. Whenever you come across websites/ blogs where you feel that the author is not posting original content, do inform the original author. I would  also request you to please visit this blog and inform the advertisers infolinks.com here regarding how my blog has been copied. The more number of complaints they receive, the faster the action will be.

Coming to the winners of the ‘ ONLY’ Event for October and a  new winner for September

The winner for October is picked using the confirmed entries from the round up here but since it had no numbering I used the announcement page for random picking. So it’s no.5 of the 41 entries in the event announcement page and that’s Smitha Kalluraya from Cook With Smile.

Also, announcing the new winner for September’s event as the previous winner did not claim the win..

At No.6 is  Lubna’s Bhangra Burger.
