It seems that a web site owner is scraping my blog posts and putting them on their site.
A week ago or so, they showed several of my posts, with no link back to me.
Now it seems they've added a link back to here at the bottom of each post.
Woopee-doodle-dee, that's not going to cut it!
I wonder if they'll scrape this post and put it on their site? I won't give them a link but just look for "Stem Leaf Bloom" dot com, all one word.
Oh, and they are on Facebook, too. Just look for Stem Leaf Bloom. I've emailed them via their contact info on their website and left messages on their Facebook page on multiple posts, including mine and those they've stolen from other bloggers.
My rights are clearly noted at the bottom of my blog. I'll repeat them here.

So, to the scrapers of the Stem Leaf Bloom website, please contact me to discuss the use of my copyright protected content.
We now return to lovely thoughts of gardening.
