My battle ..
One of the things that makes me really proud is my blog , you know that..
When I started 3 years ago I had no idea what’s going to happen, I remember the pleasure of receiving the first encouraging comment, and in the next day I got 9 E-mails I started to jump in the middle of the living room shouting “ I GOT 9 COMMENT OH I AM FAMOUS “ and now I have more than 121,000 readers !! and made so many interviews, with BBC, NKH, and other famous media ..
I was able to find time for studying , and time for my other hobbies beside writing, however the majority of the time I spent in the first few months was on the computer learning English, I didn’t succeeded because of my determination only, nor my family support’s also , but also because I am very honest with telling the story .. and that’s what people want “Honesty”
Previously in my blog, I wrote a post thanking my readers, they were fewer in number so I could mention most of them, but now I can’t mention them all, I can’t mention 121,000 name !!! but I want you to know that I read all of your comments, even when you leave comments for posts published 2 years ago ! I am blessed to have such wonderful readers and supporters..
I got through a lot of bad circumstances but reading your encouragements made me happy and full of optimism, my readers are my second family, and without you guys I wouldn’t make it .. you lived 3 years with me, you laughed in some posts, and you cried in other posts, my life was uncovered to the world, and that’s because I wanted to show the real life in Iraq, and I promise you I will never stop writing ..
Through those years of success and hard work, a blogger tried to steal my posts, but she failed and after my faithful readers visited her blog and told her to stop “copying sunshine’s blog” she finally gave up and deleted her blog, that was one year ago, well it seems that the history repeats it self!!
You remember the girl I talked about in my post “she faced charity with harm” , she was my friend and then it appears she wasn’t the kind of girl I thought she was, she started to talk badly about me and hurt my feelings, she even talked badly about me in the blog I CREATED FOR HER, I spent long time encouraging her to start her own, and promised to help her with grammar and help her to be famous, but she started to use the sentences I wrote myself (that’s against the writer’s ethics), and she signed in some posts as “Sunny” .
however Sunny & sunshine are my nicknames, she even used the same background.
I got an E-mail from a friend of mine saying “ I noticed a similarity between your blog and hers” ..
her manner, the way she writes are the same as mine, she is stealing my style.
I don’t think I write like any blogger, you see each one of the Iraqi bloggers write in his/her style, and they are all great , Marshmellow impress me with her expressions , Baghdad treasure makes me feel there are a lot of good Iraqi guys, Iraq the model is different and that’s what attract me, Najma is my teacher she taught me how to blogg, but I didn’t become a copy of her. There’s a sense of sadness and anxiety in Mama’s blog, and there is a sense of optimism in my blog ..
There are a lot of examples about what “FAKE sunny “ mentioned in her blog and belong to mine , like “God bless our national guards, our policemen, all Iraqis and You. Shining day will come someday" , and "In fact, I don't want the strong wind to blow out my candle's light for ever, and I'll never give up.....
And my sentence “''Darkness of the world can't blow my candle''
“Keep your candle lighting “
You can see that in my post “The world's darkness can't blow my candle...”which was written in Thursday, April 05, 2007 .. while she wrote that in Thursday, November 29, 2007 !!! ..
And she wrote “But we decided to never give up never never forever.” While everyone knows this is My favorite sentence that I’ve been saying for THREE YEARS, when grandpa sent me a pic with the sentence “Never ever give up”
I use words related to light, sun, and sunshine BECAUSE they are related to my nickname .
she is using almost the same titles like “Spirit of Eid“ , "Unbearable “, “The Days Ago “, “Smiling instead of Crying “
while I wrote “Eid's spirit” & , “Crying instead of shining” ..
she’s using the same pics I published in my posts like the one in my post “Happy birthday madcanuck” which was written in 2006 before she creates her “blog”
oh god , your help !.
on Thursday, December 13, 2007 she published the same post I did in Thursday, August 04, 2005, and she used the same title “Never ever give up” , but she used a different pic..
as my English Is good for someone in my age , the teacher asked me to write an aphorism in English on the blackboard each day , well she is using them too, she look at the aphorisms I write with a sight of gibe then she mention them in her writings.
She used the aphorism as her post’s title “Let by Gone, Be by Gones..”
& “Everybody see how you seem, however some know who you really are “ , or " god help those who help themselves " etc ...
I was taking a rest from studying about 2 or 3 weeks ago and I saw a movie , so I wrote something based on what I saw “You can help at least three people in your life to make them happy, and without asking them for something in return, but ask them to do the same with other three people. can imagine how many people will be happy?"
those are my words, she doesn't have the right to mention them as hers..
oh. there are many examples..
Dear, you don’t have to use someone’s efforts to be famous, you should work hard on yourself to reach the level I did, So I am asking you to stop this behavior , if you want to be a decent writer, Be honest, don’t cheat nor steal other people’s words .. because I didn’t do that, I depended on myself and asked god to help me , and look at me now, I have a lot of friends, and people support me, respect me ,believe me , and believe in me..
It is never too late, and as I say who makes no mistakes makes nothing ..
So change your behavior , if you want to succeed in your life as a person, doctor, and as a writer.
I am writing this post, wishing from my heart that you’ll learn something important that may change your life, what based on cheat and dishonesty don’t last .. I wanted to help you in the begging but you refused, and faced charity with harm, but no matter what you say or do, I’ll be like a palm, whenever someone throw a stone at it, it gives dates. ..
