<bg>I recently had a craft item appear in a show for said craft items. Prior to the show, my local paper interviewed me about it, as my blogging had caught the eye of the show organizers and it worked well with their promotion. The paper had a few images of craft item, taken by their photographer, and it was published online in addition to print.</bg>
I have a bit of a conundrumÖ
I was reading through some of my blog subscriptions yesterday, when lo and behold, I saw a photo of my craft item and (misspelled) name and city attribution in a post on the blog of a premier craft historian/author as part of a wrap up on the show along with a few other craft items.
The photo is not mineóit was taken by the photographer for the local paper, no attribution to the photographer.
On one hand, Iím honored that my humble craft item and name appears on the blog, but on the other, Iím annoyed that my work has been shown without proper attribution by someone who should know better.
But, I have no idea how to approach it. I canít find a way to contact the blogger except through a public comment.
I'm well aware of the legalities and ways to approach someone who stole my workóespecially if I donít want it to continue to appear, but Iím really more interested in a polite suggestion that the blogger spell my name correctly and give proper attribution to the photographer, not remove the content.
Any suggestions? Iím at a complete loss.
