What's New in Blogs

In recent blogging news, a writer friend has recently launched a new blog called Things I Heard. Described as "Things Overheard as I Travel through my Life and the City", the blog features short stories, flash nonfiction if you will, recounting the author's interesting and funny life experiences.

Another great addition to the blogging community!

Looks like a fun blog.

The idea sounds interesting but this bit at the bottom, "All material submitted to ThingsIHeard.com immediately becomes the real and intellectual property of ThingsIHeard.com. Submitters' identities will be kept anonymous."

would keep me from ever submitting anything to that blog. It's basically saying anything you come up with belongs to the blog writer, and you, the submitter, is swept under the rug. I want credit for things I come up with/discover. If he changed that policy, I might submit, but it's pretty lame as is.

Justin, that's a good point. I imagine that the site's author is trying to protect their own work in a zealous manner - copyright on the internet can be tricky, and problematic. But it's a good idea in general to be aware of the copyright policy of places you submit any of your writing. Fiction or nonfiction. Perhaps there's a post topic in there somewhere... hrm...
