Excerpting Policy

Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles:

  • Quoted,
  • Commented on,
  • Discussed,
  • Linked to,
  • New readers encouraged to the articles.

Social sharing of online content only extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s website.

We are excerpting your content to inform our visitors, and to point them to the original source of the excerpt.

To be frank … we want our readers to discover and visit your content, and your website.

We Want You To Be Pleased We Excerpted An Article From You.

Standards, practices, and legal decisions about “Fair Use” are still evolving online. Our standards are higher than the merely legal.

We hold ourselves to much higher standards than Fair Use.

We want Delighted Use.

If you are not delighted to be excerpted and linked to by our site, just let us know. We will take action immediately.

We excerpt your stories the way we hope others will curate our content.

Specifically, if you like a story on our site, we are pleased and gratified.

Please feel free to excerpt it as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, links back to the article, and some encouragement for interested readers to visit the original article.

Take as much of our content as you think will inform and entertain your readers. Just link, credit, and encourage the reader to visit the original site.

That is what we do.

That is what built the internet.

That is what social sharing is about.

Everyone benefits when sharing is done respectfully and honestly.

Here is what we will never do.

We never take your entire article.

We never re-publish without full credit, links and sending you readers.

We never republish an RSS feed verbatim.

We never excerpt without the intention of sending you more traffic.

We always change the headline, and add context. meaning, and analysis to your articles.

Our general guidelines for excerpts published on this site are:

  • Never more than about 30 – 40% of any article.
  • Never more than one article from any site in any one day.
  • Never more than what is needed to communicate the essence of the article.

Most Importantly …

Sharing and curation and excerpting standards are still evolving online. Our standards of delight may very well differ from yours.

If you want us to be even more generous with links and credit let us know.

If you feel your story has had too much excerpted, let us know.

We will fix it to your standards instantly.

Curation Policy

The internet was built and founded on linking, sharing, and recommending great stories from other sources on the web.

Curation, to us, means finding interesting, well-written, and highly appropriate articles for our readers.

By choosing an article from your site, we are giving it our vote of approval. This not only means that we excerpt your article, we also give it our highest recommendation, and we direct our readers … in every case … to view your article on your website.

Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your articles.

If we curate and excerpt an article, it was done, because it was outstanding in some way.

If, for any reason, you wish us not to excerpt your stories, simply contact us, and request your story be taken down.

We will immediately and without exception comply with your takedown request, and put you on our list of sites never to excerpt from.

99% of emails we get about curation and excerpting are from publishers and authors who are delighted to receive additional exposure and readership for their stories as a result of our curation.

About Us

I live in, and operate from Australia. My contact details can be found below my signature.

After under going a total laryngectomy operation in July 1995, as a permanent cure for cancer of the larynx, I had to learn to speak again at the age of 49, and till to-day continue to speak with the help of a voice prosthesis.

In 2003, things so happened, that I faced the imminent threat of not being able to use a voice prosthesis any more. When this happens I would become a ‘mute’ totally speechless, creating the need for me to find alternative employment wherein I could work without having to talk.

In May 2004 an American company, StoresOnline Inc, of Orem Utah, held a workshop in Melbourne, Australia, promoting ‘Internet Marketing’, and their web hosting services.

This was what I was looking for. As an Internet Merchant, emails and published WebPages would do all my talking for me. I purchased a package of 6 websites.

To the question ‘what do I sell on these websites’, I was told to try and sell things that I had a passion for, understood, and used a lot.

My passions are Animals, especially Cats, Children, Photography and Gift giving, not necessarily in that order.

When I started this venture in May 2004, I discovered that Australians were not yet ready to trust the Internet as a Market Place. Building websites to sell consumer products to the Australian market would have been pointless.

The best International Market I could find was the 48 continental states of the USA.

The first site that went live in August 2004 was www.catbedandtoy.com, and gradually the other five followed.

All the products I sell are purchased from manufacturers and distributors in the USA. They send what I buy directly to my customers, cutting out the middle men, thereby making it feasible for me to sell at discount prices.

This is a business venture, and the only means of livelihood for me and my dependants.

The above being the case, I am Honest and Professional, qualities without which, I cannot succeed in this highly competitive business.

As of the 1st August 2011, apart from these six websites, I also own 12 content authority sites and 65 WordPress Blogs.
