To Share or Not To Share
I've been thinking lately. I'm kind of an idea person. I have a lot of ideas. I used to harbor dreams of making millions off of my ideas (ha!). But I'm kind of wondering. Just how many ideas should you share on the Internet? If you come up with something that you think is original and creative, and you want to share it, should you? I love the idea of sharing for other crafters like myself, but I hate the idea of someone else making money off of (or getting credit for) my original ideas. Now don't get me wrong. The first place I go for ideas is the Internet (and I try my best to point you in the direction of my original inspiration). I get sooo much inspiration from other crafters, but if I have an idea that I know is an original idea, do I share it? I mean, I'm grateful that other people are sharing, and love looking at other people's ideas. How do you all feel about this? Really, I want to know. So leave comments and let me know what you think: to share or not to share, that is my question. Discuss.
