|It’s easy to get annoyed when someone takes your idea and presents it as your own, but recently someone used a quote from one of my posts here in a talk they gave, and I felt pretty darn good about it! They did tell me that they’d been reading my blog, so it was really nice to get recognition.
Also hoping to give some talks of my own soon (next month I have one lined up at work, one at university, and one for a skeptics event), but I’ll try not to rip off anyone else’s ideas in the process (hehe).
It is an interesting thing though. Crossing over from the point when it feels like your ideas have been pinched to seeing that your view has been recognised. Sort of like arguing with someone and then realising that you are both arguing the same point (this happens to me a lot. I think it’s a Skeptic Thing).
