In a creative industry, you quickly learn to appreciate references to your work as a form of flattery. Plagiarism is still no-no, but approved “re-postings” of blog entries, articles or simple quotes… I find it flattering. Someone not only enjoyed reading your work, but appreciated it enough that they want to share it with others, publicly!
So I was quite pleased when the owner of 2 Left Feet Dance Studio emailed me to request republishing an article I wrote, titled “Building Trust With Ballroom Dance,” on their website. (The original can be found published on my Suite101.com profile.)
Of course I said yes, and now it’s up… as well as the not so flattering photo of me and my friend BT in the studio. (I’m laughing like a hyena after we retook the photo a dozen times because the flash kept reflecting inthe mirrors.)
