My SITS Day!!!

capability mom blogs at kitchen desk capability mom blog is featured on the SITS Community blog as featured bloggerOne of the things about starting a blog is the new world of people you meet who are there for you in the nicest possible way. People who know what an RSS Feed is, how you can fix the one you broke, people who will tell you a link is down or that your site is slow to load.  No where is this better exemplified by the women of SITS – the whole idea of this online community is to recognize each other, give a hand (or a comment). It is such a good model for behavior in your real or your virtual life.

Thank you, SITS, for featuring my blog today. It is a labor of love mixed with hope and some frustration (those dueling Plug-ins of mine almost crashed my blog) and I love learning how to improve  my blog through your great helpful articles and finding such a warm, engaged community of women. Thank you for everything!! Check out more ways to say hey to the SITS Girls – Facebook and Blog Frog and on Twitter.

Is your blog content copyrighted?

Interesting question. Some blogs have the copyright symbol on the bottom of the blog. Do you need this? I looked in on a discussion about it on Blog Frog in the SITS community.

From Heather, author of Did You Remember Your Pill Today?

I just did some quick research and found this:

Copyright Protection

Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form so that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device. The moment you write it, paint it, or put it on the internet, your work is copyright protected.

Library of Congress

In the United States, the Library of Congress officialy registers copyrights which now last for the life of the author plus 70 years. No one else can profit or copy your ideas without your permission during this time period.

Do I Need to Register?

Your works of art, music, etc, all have copyright protection with or without formal copyright registration with the Library of Congress or any other copyright office. However, copyright registration adds proof of copyright ownership and aids you in fighting copyright infringement. Copyright literally means the right to copy.

Here is some more information from the U.S. Copyright Office

Connect with SITS, Posterous and wtf wednesdays


There are so many blogs out there and great content but how to connect and find other blogs that you are interested in reading? One great way is through The Secret is in the Sauce | The Secret to Success is Support.  This site connects bloggers by communities (you find your own within their site) – I just joined, check it out. Members read and comment on each other’s blogs – very supportive and increases your blog’s traffic.

 I also just found which is a really cool way to post by email either to your blog or a separate site on Posterous.  I will be exploring both more thoroughly in the next few days and will keep you updated.

Also, stay tuned for WTF Wednesday post :-)
