I’ve been keeping mum on this subject for a long time because i started this blog as a role to promote knowledge & love for Asian skincare and cosmetics, but the situation has gotten out of hand.
A lot of Korean online stores selling Asian & Korean skincare and cosmetic products have been copying and pasting descriptions on the blog and using them without linking and sourcing Hope In A Blog. Like i said, my goal of this blog is to promote knowledge and love for Asian skincare and products, therefore i do not mind that these descriptions and articles are shared BUT please link it back to the blog if you’ve taken any description.
The description and articles on the blog are not the OFFICIAL TRANSLATIONS GIVEN BY THE COMPANY themselves, but they are all written by me. It takes a lot of time writing them, then doing my own research and putting my own input / additional information for each product – therefore i will really appreciate it IF you would at least source the stuff that you’ve copied and pasted from the blog.
Most of these sites are Korean online stores selling skincare and cosmetic products. They are generating income from information copied from Hope In A Blog ( they are not paying me to do all these stuff but they’re leeching from us ) – so the least you can do is to LINK back to this blog, and also contribute in some form to the blog ( donations, ingredient lists, etc )
I hope that after reading this, those sites that have copied and pasted stuff from our blog will source us and credit us with a direct link back to our blog – or we will have to take action and submit these websites to Google.
