I’m rather sick and tired of being the last one to know that my blogpost appeared in NewspaperX or MagazineY.
I also want to be able to control where my content shows up. Not all content is suited for mediums other than this blog.
And so, when you want to publish something you found here, elsewhere, just DROP ME A MAIL. You can use the contact form below.
I am not averse to being published elsewhere. So let’s discuss how we can make my content suit your medium best. If you have a word limit, I can shorten my writing. If you don’t like the language, I can edit it to suit your magazine/newspaper. If there are too many obscure references your readers mighn’t be able to get, I can add footnotes. I can make all the edits you like. It is way better than my carefully constructed writing going through someone else’s editorial scissors, or my words being quoted out of context.
So. You can use the content here. On two conditions.
- You need to attribute the work to me. You can say “Originally published at http://thenitknumbskulls.wordpress.com”.
- You cannot use it for commercial purposes. Unless I agree to let you.
I didn’t just make this up. My blog is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 license. The terms of the license can be read here.
And here is the contact form you can use to contact me about any post of mine you want to reuse.
