X is for X Marks the Spot!!!


Look!  A treasure map!  X marks the spot!  (And if we were pirates this would make more sense.)

Of course, one of our favorite pirates deserves his own pirate flag.  It's Captain Jack Sparrow's pirate flag.

Data piracy, on the other hand, is wrong.  Downloading music, books, movies, etc. illegally from websites that provide them with no recompense for the creators of the work steals from those artists/writers/etc.  You're not stealing from some big, nameless company.  You're stealing from those people whose work you admire and like.

Think before you download.  Did you purchase the item?  Go for it.  Are you stealing from someone?  You should be ashamed of yourself.

  1. Or just fearful that the music company will sue you for millions of dollars.

  2. Bouncing off Angela's comment--when those big monolithic companies sue people and win, we should all ask how much of that money goes to the artists. Probably none.

  3. I totally agree with you. It's wrong and I wish there was a way to stop it.

  4. Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of
    work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal every day.

    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  5. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  8. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really
    loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  15. I'm starting up a new internet blog directory and was wondering if I can submit your blog? I'm trying to mature my directory gradually by hand so
    that it maintains high quality. I'll make sure and put your website in the proper category and I'll also use, "Blogger: Writing in the Woods - Annikka Woods" as your anchor text.
    Please let me know if this is alright with you by emailing me at:
    shelley-peacock@inbox.com. Thanks!

  16. First off I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

  17. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
