Episode 42: The Ethics of Writing Stuff

Joe and I are back from holiday! I dive right into the ethics of writing and why plagiarism is a huge no-no! I even recommend unsubscribing to all your competitors so you don’t risk copying their style and tone of voice. If you really like a writer’s stuff, instead of stealing it, post it on your blog and give them credit for it. It doesn’t have to be complicated.
