It's ridiculous, I know. I mean, I've been putting my thoughts, ideas and personal experiences out on the big bad internet for months now, it's not like this blog is by-invite only. Even though I initially thought I'd keep it very impersonal, very private, that was soon thrown out the window. Mostly because I feel silly signing off or referring to myself as "EcoYogini" and it became a big pain in the bum to keep changing the language to French so I could type the "accent aigüe" for The Fiancé (since Andrew HATES it when I leave it on French... lol).
I was really getting into this whole "blogomunity" with my regular readers and familiar commenters. It's really been fantastic getting to know those awesome peeps who are reading my blog and producing some phenomenal articles themselves. I'm even starting to make some yoga-connections with updates on local studios and events (Thanks Grace for the heads-up re: Yogiji at Sail Loft!).
Then... gasp, Beth from Fake Plastic Fish (Phenomenal blog, want to reduce your plastic?? She's an inspiration!) left a comment about how she actually read my post... somewhere else. At Fresh Health Articles in fact. Not only are my entire posts there from the past two weeks, it's like the person just copy and pasted, pictures included... with a TINY miniscule little reference to this blog: "Go to source" at the very bottom. It was the weirdest feeling of invasion I have felt in a while. Going through it would seem that each article is put up automatically, so if you're reading this post right now and you don't see EcoYogini, myself practicing yoga in Warrior I in the banner, or my awesomely fantastic fav blogs on my blogroll... then you're reading what someone has reposted without my permission.
Maybe I'm being a little sensitive, like I said it's not like I believed at any point that this blog was private- and I don't want it to be! I love having all the lovely comments and the interesting info sent my way. It's also not like I think my ramblings are "literature" or highly valuable... I guess it just really really weirds me out. Christine over at Blisschick told me that you get used to it... and I hope so.
Coming back and posting again is my way of attempting to "let it go". That and I wanted to at least aknowledge those reading this on the Help2health site- I would love it if you came and visited me here, as a part of the beautiful, wonderful blogomunity at EcoYogini.Blogspot.com :)
(and Help2Health people: still haven't heard back from my email that I sent you...SKETCHY)
