I’ve Always Been Authentic On This Blog

On LinkedIn yesterday I wrote an article titled The Word For 2018 Is Authenticity. I wrote it and alluded to an article I read that gave me inspiration leading into the new year; if you want to see the link, check out that article (why make it easy for you since it’s on a different site? lol).

they stole my content!

I often kid (kind of) about Google hating me and my blogs, but it never occurred to me that they actually love my stuff on other people’s blogs… that they’re not writing. Frankly, this could explain a lot of what’s going on with my traffic, especially if it’s being siphoned off to other places. What am I talking about? Let me share some examples.
