With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Awesome blog!
