But not once would I ever think about copying their designs.
Nor taking any of their ideas and pretending they were my own.
I turn to these girls because they were the first bloggers I looked up to. I remember just reading about them, hoping I could be them...but in my own unique way. I wanted to start my blog for myself because it was my creative outlet. I could be myself, create handmade goodies and show them off, and most importantly...be just one small part of the blogging community.
But I would never, ever, copy them.
Yes, there are many unique ideas out there.

But reading those names...you know who the girls are that started those link ups, those posts.
No one is stopping you to take those ideas and make them:

But you wouldn't be original.
You would be intentionally taking someone's idea as your own.
It will not serve you well in your blog, because your readers would know you are not being authentic.
There are so many ideas out there in this huge world, why would you have to take someone else's idea and knowingly recreate it as your own because you cannot think of something original?
Like taking Fly Away Friday, from Pink on the Cheek
and turning it into Travel Thursday.

I sure hope that this has not happened to you.
It's unfortunate as a blogger to see your ideas displayed on someone else's blog.
Especially after they asked if they can use your idea as their own and you politely said no and they did it anyways. Then don't ask my opinion if you can't respect my decision.
