Or, how to make money on blogs*.

1) Ask nicely if you can quote another blogger on your blog. Gain said permission (Of Course!).

2) Then place entire blog posts on your own blog, adding your advertisements.

3) Profit.

A pretty good business model I have to say.

* Yes, yes, I know, I'm a fine one to talk.

Eww.. it's sad knowing there's so many people out there that would rather steal content than come up with something original. But I suppose it'll always be that way.

I like the bit about them having 40 blogs...

...all of them shite.

Hi Tim

We are a bit disappointed this slipped through the net. Shiny has always linked to other bloggers and commented on what they have said. We do not condone this kind of copyright theft, especially as we have been the victim of sploggers on many occasions.

There is an irony here in that we have 40 blogs which feature in the region of 250-300 posts each day and all are unique.

Many apologies.

Ashley, Shiny Media

Tim adds: Whoa! I didn't say it was copyright theft. Paul did ask me and I said yes. I just expected a little more comment on them, that's all.
