A reason to moan or not?
Sometimes, especially when I am bored and this happens normally when I haven’t the energy to do something creative, I have a look at my WordPress statistics. And when I am even more bored, I look at where my visitors come from. And when I am really really bored, I click on the links!
I had noticed that a Dutch site regularly comes and visits my blog, but it was only the other day I felt so bored that I clicked on the link. I was quite surprised to land on a big commercial website, using one of my Portugal travel sketches to advertise Portugese holidays. I have never been asked if I would allow that… but at least they had the decency to put a link to my blog there!
I have often found paintings from me on the net, displayed in some places without my authorisation, but I don’t care really. I exactly know also that people will download them and have them printed, stealing me some business in this way. But well, somehow, when one forgets the theft aspect, it is a great compliment, and I choose to focus on this aspect.
But here, a company… I am really amazed. I have wondered if I should contact them and moan a little bit, but I don’t think I will do it. To tell the truth, it is an honour to be featured in this way. But I would like to know how you, who read this post, would react to it. I am really interested to know.
