LINKS: When you link to my site from your site, I appreciate you citing my blog by name and including a direct link to the appropriate page.

There is much confusion as to what is allowed and not allowed when it comes to republishing content from websites. It is NOT LEGAL to scrape or use content and photos even if you provide a link back to the site. The minute something is published, it is considered copyrighted. So even if there isn’t a copyright notice, using any of the content, unless it is a small snippet for review, is not legal and can get you in big trouble.

My policy at Shockingly Delicious is simple. If you want to link to a recipe on Shockingly Delicious, please do. You may not reproduce the actual recipe on your site but should link directly to the recipe on Shockingly Delicious.

PHOTOS: For use of photos, ask me first — DReinhold {at} charter {dot} net. Please give proper photography credit and some introductory text with the credit. Please do not remove my watermark.
PINTEREST:  Pins are very welcome. Please make sure it links back to the site and don’t copy the recipe onto the pin.

I am making Bing Cherry Jam with your recipe – it tastes great. I do have difficulties as my jam is runny. Part of the problem might be that 4 cups of pitted and diced cherries weight considerably less than 3 lbs. My 5 1/2 cups weight about 2 1/2 lbs. Any suggestions?
