It's really strange what you find when you Google yourself:
Hmmm... I never really thought of myself as underrated. But, maybe I am. 😉 Oh, and yes, this person is referring to ShaiCoggins.com as one of the "most underrated blogs".
Unfortunately, that's just a bit of "bright spot" in my Googling. Whenever I do a Google/Technorati/Feedster search or something, I often find one of the things that I hate the most online: CONTENT THIEVES. Yes, those horrid people who just infringe on people's copyright. I especially loathe those who actually get something for themselves (get paid, etc.) by stealing from other people.
And no, putting my name in a complete article that gets reprinted doesn't make it legal. If I haven't given permission, then yes, it's copyright infringement.
I know I can't stop this from happening - the same way I can't completely stop spam from coming in to my inbox. But, I will definitely keep on fighting it.
Anyway, what about you? If you can start a list of underrated blogs, which ones would you include?
