Sunday Selfies: Week #241


Sunday Selfies


My plan was to wink at you in my selfie, but I caught myself in mid-wink. I hope you like it anyway.

Before we start the blog hop, Mom has a question for those of you blogging on a WordPress platform.

Looking for Help in Protecting Our Content

As most of you know by now, our content is being stolen and posted on other blogs. One site has been shut down. Two (that we know about) continue to be active. I have been looking into some of the WordPress plug-ins that profess to make this copying of our content impossible. I found five potential plug-ins but few reviews of any of them. If anyone is using a plug-in to prevent their content from being scraped, could you please let me know in the comments, along with which plug-in you are using and if it is working for you. I know many others are caught up in this, and I will happily share anything I find that might stop this theft.

Time to Hop

Here’s the hopping tips we share every week for any newbies to the hop.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Thanks for hopping over to see us and supporting me and the other Kitties Blue. Hope this first Sunday of spring is an easy one.

If you are new to our hop, WELCOME!

Purrs and paw-pats, Calista Jo

Great selfie, CJ ! Zorro is sure that you’re winking at him ; he sends you a wink back, and a kiss for your lovely nose. Purrs

Don’t you just want to hiss and whap those blog stealers. They even post them as their own content with no reference to where they came from.
We have both a blogger and wordpress blogs, posting the same content each week…but I have no idea how to safeguard our postings. A while back someone started using the domain(?) of one of our inactive sites…sheesh.

I sure enjoyed your sweet winkie selfie, Calista Jo!

Charles Huss March 24, 2019 at 2:46 pm

Awesome selfie, Calista Jo. I didn’t know plug-ins like that existed. I will have to keep up with what you learn.


Sandee March 24, 2019 at 2:19 pm

It’s a purrfect Selfie if you ask me. You’re a most pretty girl kitty.

I hope you find a plug in that works so thieves won’t be able to steal your content. Karma is what they need.

Have a purrfect Sunday Selfie. My best to your peeps and extra prayers for Sawyer. ♥

Fantastic selfie.
I am going to try to help you with your problem. I have two WordPress blogs and what I have found is two ways you might be able to do something. The first thing you might want to try is going is to the Wordpress Reader, click on Reader, then click on manage, find the blog you want to report most likely by clicking on search on the left hand side, once you have found the blog, go to the blog you want to report, down in the bottom right hand corner it will say follow or following, if you’re not following the blog you will see the word follow then off to the right of the word follow there are three dots(…) click on the dots and you will see several things you can do including report this content. If this doesn’t work, go to your WordPress blog and under sites and Reader click on where it says blog posts then click on Drafts, Go to one of your drafts, click edit, On the lower right hand side you will see a question mark in blue, click on the question mark and it will bring up a menu of options, below all these options in the lower right hand corner, click on contact us. Hope this helps you.

You are flirty beautiful CJ! Dash Kitten’s info on the plugin sounds good, I’ll give it a try. We’re not even a year old yet as a website/blog so no one tries to steal anything from us.

We think your winky selfie is adorable.

We’re on Blogger but we’re small potatoes so nobody wants our content.

The Florida Furkids with tons of love and smoochies to Mau from Allie and paw pats and headbonks from Sneezy (aka) Noelle for Sawyer.

ps – Allie hopes Mau likes today’s selfie.

That is a beautiful selfie. I wish I knew the answer to your question because my content is being stolen too. Thanks for hosting. Have a great day! XO

Brian Frum March 24, 2019 at 8:52 am

Such a beautiful selfie! Hey, tell Mom those plug-ins don’t work, the content thieves don’t come to the blog and copy and past, they pick it up from your RSS feed. You can disable the RSS feed but then nobody would ever find your blog in any kind of reader…or on google, etc. We don’t know of anything that prevents selective blocking of RSS feeds.

Calista Jo, you’re just the cutest. Our stuff has been stolen too. We just give up…seems like these thieves are everywhere and just don’t stop.

Wow, I knew that food blog content was being stolen all the time, I didn’t know pet blogging was too!

I don’t know of any plugin. Usually we just file a DMCA.

Great selfie Calista Jo, we think the semi-wink could be your trademark like Mona Lisa’s smile was hers.

We hope you can put an end to the blog theft.

C. J., dear furiend, I just realized my selfie looks like a semi-wink, too. What an amazing coincidence! Have a wonderful week, dear furiend.


Buddy Budd March 24, 2019 at 7:16 am

You are such the flirt Calista Jo. Very nice Selfie

Dad did check out Dash’s Blog and when he right clicked he got the message. Yay!
We are on Blogger so have just listed a copyright on all new content

Beautiful selfie Calista Jo! We’ve had to put some something on our blog too, to stop the content scraping thieves, but as we’re blogger we can’t help with your WP dilemma!

That’s a fine little winky for a Selfie, CJ. You’re very sweet <3
I have tried to find something that could help you to prefent copying, as we are using Wordpurress, but we don't have an app for that, maybe there is when you have a professional website. I found something else where you maybe can find an answer to your question https://en.support.wordpress.com/prevent-content-theft/ and/or maybe here https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ Crossing my paws for you!
Pawkisses for a Happy Sunny Sunday to all of you🐾😽💞

Lovely selfie!

We don’t know of any plug-in for what you mentioned but we shall be on the lookout for one ourselves.

My blog is on blogger but Mum’s other blog is on Wordpress.

Purrs xx

Hi CJ….love your semi-wink…..half a wink is better than no wink at all! Sorry we don’t know what to suggest for stopping the STEALERS from stealing your words. We only have the free Wordpress blog and there are no plug-ins for us. I hope you can find something that will work!

Hugs, Teddy

Miss Janet, Harvey here.

Mum and I are trying this plug in out right now “WP Content Copy Protection with Color Design” If you visit Dash Kitten and try to right click it ‘should’ come up with a copyright message.

If this is not to your liking look under new plug ins and type ‘content theft’ to see if you prefer other plug in types.

Your buddy

Calista Jo, we love your mid-wink selfie, pretty girl! Mom Janet, we’re sorry that those unscrupulous people are stealing your content, and hope you can find some sort of plug to stop that scraping.
