Stolen Photos on the Web

Stolen Photos?

Yes, I see many of our photos in sites other than ours on the web. This is OK with us and pretty normal these days with all the social media available out there.

However, I see many photos of our spheres in other people’s websites and some with their own watermarks; those photos are simply stolen. Funny, some of these photos still have the same title I used in my Ebay store starting with siaz. Sia happens to be my first name. Hellooooo!

Should we be flattered or frustrated? Neither, just amazed of how low some people go to get a slight benefit at other people’s expense. We do not know what these people do with our photos but for sure they do not have the product to back them up. It took Dale many hours to make those spheres and I invested some more time to take the photos. They are our spheres and our photos. Shouldn’t the thieves, at least, give us some credit? I guess I am asking too much…

Our New Home on the Web

Hello World!! Welcome to our new home

new home on the web Outback Jasper Sphere Australia
4.4″ Outback Jasper Sphere Australia

It is sad, frustrating, inconvenient, and causes loss of business when the software of your website becomes obsolete and you need to create a new home on the web from scratch. Well, it happened to me.

However, there is always a positive side to all bad things that happen to us. In this instance, for me the positive was WordPress.  I like the flexibility and all the possibilities available to me while working on my new website.

Come and visit us at thespheremaker.com. The store is not fully populated with our spheres yet but it will get there. Here are some of the current listings:

 

Come and visit often.
