Blogging etiquette dictates that we bloggers don’t just cut and paste from other sites… We should add our own comments and perspective, include a snippet from that which we are referencing and encourage the reader to visit the actual site referenced for more info (and a hit on that site). Well, I just don’t always have the time for such. Also, if the underlying intention of that so-called etiquette is more hits on sites, I’m just not that motivated. To me, it’s the message, not the blog hits generated…
With that editorial on the topic, here’s the entire text from an announcement about Cradles to Crayons, the service organization that I make so many donations to, given their role as an efficient provider of clothes and material needs of kids here in Massachusetts.
